weekend fun

Poppy stayed home from school for the first time ever on Friday!  She started complaining the night before about her cheeks hurting her and she felt warm and was really emotional.  She woke up pretty much back to normal on Friday, but just to be on the safe side I kept her home.  By about 11am I was looking for some new things to do to keep both kids busy so I whipped up this activity I found on pinterest...

It was just a ziploc bag filled with a teaspoon each of baby oil and two colors of water soluble paint and then you double seal the bag with tape...
They thought it was super cool- for about 2 minutes!!!

Saturday morning, the boys stayed home and Poppy and I headed out for a day of fun together.  First we had music class and a concert at suzuki strings.  Then we went out for a quick lunch together and headed off to West Seneca to see a high school production of Beauty and the Beast.  Poppy was super excited to see this musical and couldn't believe we were able to get a ticket to the sold out show.  And then of course as soon as it started and she saw the beast on stage she said that she was ready to go home!  After a while she relaxed and was able to enjoy the show, right up until the last scene when she hid under my coat!  She is a hoot, this girl...
 After the show she said that she really loved it, and then fell asleep about 2 minutes later...

Meanwhile, daddy introduced Sammy to the art of fingerpainting....



Marc said he really liked painting and even the cleaning up part...

Then we came home just in time to help daddy make some chocolate pudding...

Sunday was nice and relaxing, just hanging out playing all day...
 Sam accidentally knocked this tower over as soon as I snapped the picture and then he just kept looking at the aftermath with this look on his face, like he was about to burst into tears...

And now we're getting ready for some Valentiney fun...

I must buy some super duper ziplocs for that paint project! looks like a blast. And what a Saturday - for the boys and girls. Very brave of Marc to introduce Sam to finger paint! I can't picture Matt doing that :)

I so need to get my butt on Pinterest. I love it but I seem to have no time anymore. I am barely reading news or blogs. Bah.
