10 days of Avery (Monday)

My little Cinderella's woke up about 7:30am this morning & worked their little booties off until about 1pm. I had them washing walls throughout my house, scrubbing floors, vacuuming, cleaning the tub, sink, dusting, and cleaning "the dog room" (aka laundry room) which they both just barely survived. But it paid off my house looks fantastic and there is no way I could have mustered enough pregnant energy to do it myself.
This was their reward. We went to the mall and bought them all a pair of new shoes & they each got a packet filled with Disney dollars featuring various characters. This is a tradition we've established whenever we go to "the Land" . They can spend all their dollars on whatever they want. But when they are gone. They are gone & they aren't allowed to spend any money until the last day. So they can have 3 days or so deciding what it is they want most. Then the last day is usually a shopping spree. It works for us.

So I did take them to the Splash Park in Tempe & bought them Sonic for anyone thinking I'm too wicked stepmothery... Anyway, tomorrow we are off to... the Happiest Place on Earth. I'd like to say that we will be thinking of you while we are gone - but frankly, that's just a big fat lie.

Have such a good time! I've missed you lately...between me being out of town and you being gone, it feels like months since we've played. Let's connect when you come back from heaven.

You are too cute for words...can I adopt you into my family?
