What have we been up to?

Soccer has started! What? That's the wrong kid? Oh right. Phoenix thinks he's big.

Cougar's just happy to be outside running around. He loves soccer.

Mark fixed the brakes on my car. Lots of fun for him. He got help from Phoenix who, like I said before, thinks he's big.

I made my first sewing project since I strained my back sewing back in October (I am paying for it. I hurt!) I made this super fancy backseat organizer. If you don't look closely you won't see the puckered seams and uneven lines. I already love it. My favorite part is the colored pencil holder pockets. I used those Crayola Twistables so there's no need for sharpening back there. Hopefully, this will help in my attempt to keep our car cleaner.

April Fool's Day

I like this day, but for some reason I can never remember it! I've been wanting to try to make yucky fake food desserts, but never remember. Cougar however looks forward to April Fool's Day like it's Christmas. I think I have a prankster on my hands. My favorite trick he tried yesterday was when he said "Mom! There's a enchilada on your shoulder" I gave the appropriate "Eww! Gross! (slight freak out)" response. Come to find out he didn't mean I had a large, cheesy, delicious mexican dish on my person, but a big, creepy, hairy spider. Ha! He'd gotten enchilada and tarantula mixed up!

For show and tell at preschool he was supposed to bring something to trick his class. He chose to take some gross pretend body parts (thanks Mom!). He had a tongue, hand, foot and eyeball. When it was his turn to show, he told his class he pulled them off his little brother! I'm going to have to watch my back as he gets bigger!
