Last weekend, J & I decided to tackle another task we've been meaning to do. Last year, we created a rose bed and used stones to frame it. We intended to do the same for the rest of the flower beds in front of our house but we never got a chance to until last Saturday.
So while JAE slept, we set up the baby monitor and had JOE help us around the yard.
As they say, "team work makes the dream work." I dug the well for the stones and J filled it in with pavers' sand and the stones while JOE acted as the "back seat driver" by telling us "you missed a spot!" or "can I help?" or "don't spray me with the water" or "momma, can I have a frog?" By the way, my response to the last statement was "ewwwww...momma pick up frogs!"
Anyways, here are pictures of the yard.
The after. We really like how it turned out.
I ordered this peephole from Amazon.com. J and I were both able to install it in our front door. The entire thing took less than 20-minutes to install. Score one for quick and easy DIY projects.
Now on to our weekly mommy/daughter selfie. I just love the different expressions on JAE's face. JOE is already a pro at selfies.
This is JAE's "here we go again...I'm not sure about this" look.
This is JAE's "enough is enough" look.
This is JAE's "fine. You win but I refuse to smile" look.
And her "you're still at it mom?" look.
But as they say, practice makes perfect. The next day, JAE was in a better mood. Here's her "OK. I won't fight it" look.
And her "oh, this is not so bad. I'll even attempt a half smile" look.
And her "OK OK. I indulged you. Now, let's move on" look. I already know that JAE will be the one making faces in pictures. I love it!
Be still my heart! I took this picture while pumping last Friday and J was getting the girls ready for the day. Love them, love them!
I hope you're having a great week so far! I was recently tagged by Call me Mummy to blog 7-random things about me. I am in the process of putting together that list and hope to post that blog next week.
