Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

This past weekend was packed!  Avery and Mack went to their Grandparents house for the day on Saturday-this was the BEST thing ever!  Mark and his brother Jack were able to get the babies room painted and I was able to clean the whole lower level-normally it has to be done in chunks.  We thank Uncle Jack, Nanny and Papa H. for this help.

Sunday the kiddos woke up WAY TOO EARLY, so we decided to embrace the day.  We were hosting family dinner for Jane's birthday (Mark's mom aka Nanny) and needed to get her gift ready.  First they painted craft sticks so later we could hot glue them into the word NANNY-forgot the picture on this.  Avery had a blast and Mack was having fun until he lost it.  So crafts this day weren't the best...

Then they made cards-these went a little better because it only required their hand prints.  They turned out really cute.  This is a Pinterest idea!

Then the whole Watson family came over to celebrate.  Luckily, Aunt Heidi and Aunt Meagan made parts of the dinner so my stress level was 0!  

The cousins have really started to play together.  Avery and Cohan held hands and ran around the house.  Soon, Mack will be right there.  There is something different when your friends are your family:)  Cousins are fun!  Hopefully there will be lots of playdates and we can give each other breaks!

I love this picture of all them!  Corn on the cob is the best!
Cohan and Avery get to go to Sesame Street Live next week-should be fun if they don't get scared. 

Another weekend full of family.  We are very blessed!
