While Daddy's away

This week had it all: sick kids, car problems, bad weather, and a traveling husband! Sounds awful, and there were definitely those moments. But there were some good moments too.

I made this pizza on Sunday night and ate it all week. Chock full of olives since I wasn't sharing with my olive-hating husband! 

A Sunday stroll

My late-night buddy. I'm hoping that his cold is what made him such a terrible sleeper this week and that it's not permanent!

Bath time

I was trying to capture the way her hair turns out like Ann of Green Gables towards the end of the day. Lots of volume.

Unwinding with a biiig bowl of ice cream, my to-do list, magazines, and Parenthood. I took this picture and then laughed at how scattered even my leisure time is! I need to calm down.

Lots of rain this week - it's hard to tell in this pic but we were soaked after leaving Target.

She loves Bingo!

Mom came over Wednesday and helped me make a skirt. It was the first time either of us had used an existing item of clothing as a pattern, and it actually turned out well!

Even Millie got to craft with Monka.

The finished product.

My poor sick and somber baby.

Paper is probably his favorite toy right now!

Just after taking this picture Millie said, "This is the best painting in the whole world."

Another of our late-night parties, I let him have at my church bag. He would go to bed at his normal time and then wake up 30 minutes later, ready to play! Pretty frustrating until I just let go of the idea that I needed a break or to do other things. All that other stuff can wait.

I had a little too much fun with the "draw" gadget on Google+ while hanging out with Tyler.

We made it through the week! So happy to have Daddy home today.

Sounds like the perfect week to be a single mom...not!! Way to handle it all! Hope max is doing better. It's weird not seeing that huge smile on his handsome face. I was beginning to wonder if he wS ever upset ;)
