It's once again Friday & of course that means it's time for Insta-Friday!

Saturday, I went to my sister's house for book club.
Alex loves his cousin Hannah!

Alex & Boone playing the piano. Alex told me that I needed to cover my ears because they were playing really loud.

Addy playing on our iPad & Alex playing on Molly's. When we got home Alex wanted me to download all the games that Molly had on hers. (Thanks Molly for having lots of NOT free games, lol!)

While I was at my sister's, Nick painted the playroom. It was a maroonish color & really just too dark. And now it's a milk chocolatey color & looks great!

Hannah sent us home with some of her old toys & clothes. Thanks for the Barbie life jacket! You know my boy loves it! (And he said the viking hat is his sailor hat, lol.)

Addy was obsessed with animals of the savanna this week. So I drew a background for her & she drew a mommy & baby elephant, lion & giraffe. We cut them out & taped them onto her savanna.

Then she put on her 'safari' hat & sunglasses & she was all set to go to the savanna!

And Addy made me & Alex wear the hat & sunglasses too!

Day 10: Big... Alex loves to take pictures on my phone. Here's a close up that he took showing off his big lips. (He gets those from his daddy!!)

It basically rained all week long, which I loved!

 Day 11: My favorite color... Pink...Alex put on Addy's raincoat (he doesn't have one of his own, I guess I need to buy him one) & played in the rain.

Addy & Alex took turns pushing each other around in this little play pram. This time Addy's stuffed puppy Joey went for a ride too! (Look at the excitement on Addy's face!)

Alex loves to draw & write letters.

Even on his feet! (And also on my couch! I forgot to take a picture of that one.)

Since we were going to have to replace the living room floor, we decided to replace the playroom & dining room at the same time so they would all match. Here's day 1 of the process. Nick laid most of the tile in the playroom after work on Wednesday.

Thursday, Addy had an appointment for the dentist to look at her bottom teeth. One of her permanent teeth is about halfway in but her baby teeth haven't fallen out yet. The dentist said they may have to pull 2 of them, so I got Addy to give me a big toothy smile before we left the house. After the dentist examined them, she said that we still have a little more time. If they haven't fallen out by the time the permanent tooth is almost completely grown in, then I'll have to bring her back to have them pulled. That should be interesting!

Nick's parents came over on Thursday so that Nick's dad could help him with the tile. They brought Addy a toy wildlife set, which was perfect because of her obsession with savannas this week. Alex just liked the box.

And they brought Alex a spiderman glove that shoots silly string!
He got me good!!

But don't worry, I actually had a can of silly string (stashed away in a cabinet in case of a silly string emergency, which this definitely was) & so I got him too! And then a silly string war ensued!

Last night Bailey didn't come inside at night like he usually does. And then this morning, he still didn't show up. And now it's Friday night & he's still missing :( Luckily, Addy's had Mawmaw to play with all day so she hasn't been asking for him. I'm going to make signs & walk around the neighborhood looking for him tomorrow. Last year when he went missing, he was stuck in a neighbor's backyard for 12 days. Hopefully we'll be able to find him tomorrow. I don't know that Addy & I can take it if he's missing for a long time again.

Day 13: Open: This morning, I opened Addy's door & this is what I saw. Alex was the music conductor (he has a drum stick in his hand that he's leading the music with but it's hard to see it in this picture) and Addy & Mawmaw were singing. It was really cute! And then Addy got up, walked over to me, pushed me out of her room, said "Bye Mom" and closed the door in my face! She ovbiously doesn't need me this weekend with Mawmaw here!

Pat & I took the kids to run a few errands. We had to go to Lowe's to get a few more things for the tile install. And of course, the kids had to ride the tractors while we were there.

Then we ran to Walmart & on the way out the kids rode on Dumbo.

And then we went to Petsmart. We just went there to look at animals.

Addy loved the birds.

I thought this little guy was cute.

Until I saw his price tag!!! $350 for a BIRD. You have got to be kidding me!

On the way home, we stopped at Starbucks for an afternoon coffee. While we were in the drive thru, Alex told me to move the rearview mirror so that he could see himself & then he started making silly faces at himself! I love that silly boy!

And that's what's been happening in our home this week!
