Sierra: "Mommy, Mommy, look, come see!"
Sierra: "Look! REINDEER!!!"

There were three deer out our front window across the street. It was pretty exciting that the girls spotted the deer all by themselves and were so excited to show me. So we went outside and sat on our front deck and watched until the deer walked out of sight.

My Day

I had a wonderful Mother's Day this year. We celebrated it on Friday (because I worked Sunday). I cleaned all day Thursday so the house would be super clean for me on Friday. I had the whole day planned out. Eyebrow appointment with Megan in the afternoon and date with Jake in the evening. That was it. Nothing else but relaxing. Gotta love those days. Well, my day started out good. Then on my way to my appointment I got a flat tire - were talkin' driving on the rim for two blocks. So, that was fun. I did make it to my appoiment but had to go to the tire store after. Luckily the place I took my tire to be fixed is right next to the mall. So we hung out at the mall for an hour waiting for the tire. By the time I got home it was already 5:00 (there went my peaceful, nothing to do afternoon). Jake got home shortly after me and brought me this BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers. He said there is suppose to be 100 blooms. I would say it's close. We went out to a nice restaurant that we had never been to before - The Willow Creek Cafe. It was a nice to spend an evening without kids (Thanks Megan!)
Today, the girls made bird houses. I found a cute pattern online and was anxious to try it out. I think they had fun.
I think the eye thing Sierra is doing in the picture is her new thing to do for pictures. She closes the one eye everytime I tell her to smile for the camera. Hopefully that won't last long....

At some point today Maddie managed to take off her overalls (her favorite pants) and turn them around and get them back on. She looked so funny wearing them backwards.
