random, random, and more random

My phone is filled with pictures of stuffed animals in poses like this. Thanks to Olivia-the-photographer. Pretty sure the idea came from THE cutest library event ever. There was a stuffed animal sleep over that the girls took their stuffed animals too. We went to the library at 6:30PM and the kids read books, and sang songs to their stuffed animals. They did a little craft, and then tucked in their "friends". Then we went home and went back to the next day to see what kind of adventures the stuffed animals had overnight in the library. The librarians had a slide show running of literally hundreds of pictures of all the stuffed animals doing things like watching a movie, reading books, making smores, doing a craft, causing mischief.  Seriously so cute.  They had a goody bag to bring home as well. It had a craft that their stuffed animals made, printed pictures of the night, a picture frame, and a bouncy ball. The girls loved every second of it. So did I! Olivia asked where the magician was. Confused, I asked what she meant. Then she said, "The magician who made all the animals come alive! Where is he?" She was so sure a magician was the only logical explanation as to how her stuffed animal came to life. Seriously! Cutest library ever.
Super concentration face. If your tongue is in your mouth you are not thinking hard enough.

This is something I came up with all on my own. I'm sure someone else has done it before but I didn't get the idea from pinterest or anywhere else on the internets. I wrote the number then we glued beans on the touch math points. Then we practiced addition, and counting, and it was just good to help her learn to write her  numbers as well. She loved doing this.
I couldn't get a good picture but this was on the way home from Niagara Falls. We stopped in Buffalo, NY for the ORIGINAL buffalo wings. They were seriously so delish. I should have taken a picture of the could-be-celebrity smoking his pipe. Oh well.

These are all pictures Olivia took at Niagara Falls. Love her eye for photographic material. These pictures crack me up!
Presque Isle. This is Lake Erie at about 9:00PM. I am going to miss this place so much!
Oh and this little man is 6 months. SIX MONTHS! He can sit up and he eats a lot. He has no teeth. He wakes up to nurse in the middle of the night - after about a month of sleeping a solid 12-13 hours... this past week all of a sudden he started waking up again. Darnit. Why do they have to sleep in spurts like that?  He is beyond adored by his sisters. He likes to be rocked to sleep, but sometimes has to settle for a quick kiss and his blanket because there are 2 other children in need on my arms. He is trying to learn to move - and Olivia is determined to teach him to crawl. I'm afraid he'll figure it out sooner than later.
