It’s been awhile since we went Pokemoning!

      

Our last bingo night—and we won two baskets!

Headed off to our last PTO Bingo Night! :(

We actually donated a big snack basket this year (I’ve been wanting to donate one for awhile now) and I debated buying raffle tickets because we don’t need anything… But it was to benefit the school so why not?! I bought 20 and gave each of the kids five tickets to put in whatever they wanted. Katie put all hers in the Emoji Basket and Owen put his in an Art Basket. I spread the rest out between some Chocolate Baskets and the Art Basket.

Owen wanted to sit with his friends…

So the first bingo game starts and Katie literally had every single number called and we were sure she was going to win…but she didn’t. But imagine our surprise when they brought up the first basket—one of the chocolate baskets—and we won!! Woohoo!!

Soon the Emoji Basket came up and I happened to record it just in case…

All night Katie kept saying “I can’t believe we won TWO baskets!” :) This makes up for three years of winning nothing!

This was the kindergarten chocolate basket. We really really lucked out—everything from M&Ms to s’more fixins to brownie mix to sandwich cookies to truffles to camel milk chocolates!!!

And enough emoji stuff to choke a horse!!

3200sf and where do they play?!

They have 3200sf to play in on three floors so where do they both play while Tom is fixing the freezer and pieces are laying all around the kitchen?

  

What I came downstairs to this morning.

She wasn’t thrilled but she wasn’t complaining too loudly.  

 

Weeknight baseball!

 

What little girl wouldn’t want unicorn lips?!

Let me just tell you how excited Katie was when I told her she could wear mommy’s lip stuff and that I had unicorn gloss for her! (It’s LipSense Opal gloss.)

  

Giving Maggie some love. 

Katie loves all her animals.  

 

Ice cream truck!

The kids have been bugging us and bugging us and bugging us about getting ice cream from the ice cream man ever since he started coming around this spring. We promised them we’d do it once before we moved—but the timing would have to be right since he usually comes to the playground after school and that is right before dinner. So today we were at Julie’s and she was going to get something for Kayleigh and offered to get something for Katie… Well I couldn’t very well have Katie telling Owen she got something so I texted Tom and had him send Owen out. They were thrilled. 

   
       

OMG I CAN’T EVEN. 

  

She finally went across after two months!

We have been trying to coach her over the top for two months now… She will get to the top and just stay there, then claim she’s too scared. Today she finally did it!! And then did it again and again like it was nothing!

She figured this out on her own. 

Our friends bring this little car to the playground and mostly it goes unused. But today Katie realized they could do this. :)

Katie’s groovy moves

Presents for us for our new huge back yard!!

Super soaker water guns!

 

This is what she does on the swings now. 

  

This kid. 

  

Katie’s new chair

We picked up this chair today from a yard sale and Katie immediately used it for her homework. 

  

With an assist from big brother…

  

As soon as I sat down…

This is what happened as soon as I sat down today after the craziness of my launch party.

  

Pre-party family

  

This is how she dressed to go out for dinner. 

I missed taking a photo of her clothes—she put a ballerina tutu and leg warmers on over her clothes. And she’s into mismatched socks now.
