12 of 12 - May

So, I have some serious blog catching up to do, but for now, it's time to get back into my 12 of 12 routine.  January and February I was feeling too awful to want to take pictures and post them, and March and April the 12th just flew by without me noticing.  So here's May 12th, a Saturday, the day before Mother's Day.

1 - I'm not sleeping very well, so I was up early and decided to be constructive.  I'm doing some sewing for a friend's business and got a bunch done before the kids woke up.

2 - I really dislike photos of myself while I'm pregnant, much less pregnant and still in pajamas and pre-makeup and hair, but this is my in all my prego glory.  I needed to practice the song the Primary sang the next day for Mother's Day at church.

3 - We spent an hour or so cleaning the church today.  Yes, this is just the outside of the building, but I felt weird taking photos of us washing windows, taking out the trash, and cleaning bathrooms.

4 - I took the kids to the Issaquah Farmers' Market, and the kids were mesmerized by these little solar butterflies that flutter around and are powered by a tiny solar panel.

5 - Seth's turn with another cute little butterfly.

6 - Check it out...75 degrees.  I've been waiting for the sun and warm temperatures!

7 - Seth and Lydia's friend had a birthday party, and I love this one of Calvin giving Seth a party favor.  He looks so heartfelt and sincere as he hands over his packet of awesome dinosaurs and stickers.

8 - Too many peonies to count.  I can't wait until these pop open.  They're my favorite and remind my of my Granny.

9 - Our great friends invited us and another family over for a bbq dinner, and here are the kids taking a break from running around and digging in the dirt for Brooklyn to read them a story.

10 - An early Mother's Day surprise - red and purple tulips from my sweetheart.

11 - Here's a progress shot of our backyard project.  We tore out our old, rotted wooden deck and are waiting for concrete to be poured.  Can't wait for it to be done!

12 - After baths and before bed, the kids helped me make a frozen lemonade pie for dessert the next day, that is, if you consider "helping" licking the beaters.
