Friday’s Fotos: The Perfect Gift and Updated Style

My sister gave me the perfect mug for my birthday. I hold it proudly! 🙂

And Maggie changed the fabric above her head on her bunk bed, so we now have room for more “style” on the wall.

More Maggie Style

 

Burke Style

Remember Maggie’s Style? And the start of Burke’s Style? The rest of Burke’s Cars accouterments (finally) came in the other day and I had a chance to put it all up!

Cars!

Burke was speechless when he first saw it. (Of course, it could have been that he just wanted to get back to playing with his Gameboy 😛 )

(26 seconds)

We all went back downstairs and Burke stayed up to admire it for a good 10 minutes. It was too cute. 🙂

Makes My Monday: Rays of Sunshine on Rainy Weekends

Despite being stuck inside with 3 cabin-fevered kids (and 2 cabin-fevered adults), and all the bickering that goes along with that…there were quite a few moments of sunshine in our house over the weekend.

We went to the local Japanese Steak House (the kind where they cook right in front of you), and had a GREAT time. The kids ate more than they do when we take them to other restaurants, and Maggie and Logan even mastered chopsticks! (Well, okay – so they’re the “kid” version of chopsticks where they band ’em together with rubber bands and a piece of paper, but I was still quite impressed!!)

Logan with His Chopsticks

Burke decided that he was too hungry and wanted to use a fork 😉 Can’t say that I blame him…those chopsticks are tricky!!

We also started to get Burke’s “Style” in place. (It’s only fair. Maggie’s is already there.)

Burke with His New McQueen Comforter

He has new McQueen sheets too, but – obviously – they’re under the comforter. And he just picked out a few things to hang on the walls … more about that later 🙂

But the ray of sunshine here was that he wanted to share this with his siblings 🙂

Maggie, Burke, and Logan

Please excuse the fuzziness of Burke…he couldn’t stop bouncing because he was so excited. LOL!

These rays of sunshine (well behaved kids and sharing) that cut through our otherwise-very-rainy weekend TOTALLY Make My Monday.

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Head on over to see what else makes people’s Mondays (there are always some really good ones!)
