  • This morning everyone was stirring-actually, Campbell was at my bedside before my alarm went off showing me her curly hair. We had worked pretty hard last night wrapping her hair around paper towels to get wavy curls. Despite my doubt, it did work and worked really well. They probably would have stayed better if I had some type of product to put in her hair. It was cute though-even before my alarm rang.
  • Since everyone was awake this morning, I didn't even have to walk up the stairs to wake anyone up. I did just have to yell up the stairs to make sure that Reagan was awake. Soon we were loaded up and headed to the church house.
  • After church we rushed to Grannymom's house to eat lunch. She had chili which was perfect because it was pretty chilly outside. Once we had our lunch and Oreo delight for dessert, we headed to the capitol building for the March for Life.
  • We found lots of our buddies so the kids enjoyed standing around and eventually playing with their buddies. Whitman found some boys with sticks to play with. I spent a good deal of time making sure that Whitman wasn't actually using his stick to hit people (he never did) and making sure that the others didn't hit him (they just hit each other-probably were brothers).
  • Once we made it home, Robby wanted to make cookies and I wanted to take a nap. I won so we snoozed for a little bit. Then we woke up and made the cookies. We ran out of Hershey kisses so Robby went me to look for the Hershey bars that I packed for the trip. It took me about 30 minutes to find them, but eventually I did and the cookies were properly topped with some chocolate.
  • Robby picked up Brett from his church along with supper from Burger King. We all ate and then the kids played basketball along with a card game. There was also some oobleck making. That is currently happening right now and I am doing my best to not go in the kitchen to see the big mess that I know is happening. I am also not going into my bedroom because that is where a pile of laundry is waiting to be folded. So I am pretty much trapped in my chair under my blanket-which is pretty perfect!
