Just when you think

Just when you think you've got your kids figured out,
they go and do something that surprises you.
There is something about Wednesdays that causes my children to behave badly.
(they turn EVIL!)
Yesterday was no exception.
By the time Lego Hair Man got home from work they were swinging from Chandeliers
(ceiling fans= White trash Chandeliers)
Lego and I had a viewing/visitation that we needed to go to. We hurried out of the house as quickly as we could, leaving several fighting-screaming-angry children in our wake.
(It is really sad when going to a mortuary is actually a nice night out, because you are actually out)
When we got home, the house was in a state of chaos.
(It is amazing how fast they can mess up the house!)
Our oldest DD was waiting at the door to lead us down to my (still in disarray) Studio.
Waiting for us was a candle light dinner that they had all readied for us.
They built a table out of 2 TV trays and a piece of plywood, covered by a lace table cloth.
We had angle hair pasta, carrots, salad, and Diet Pepsi in our fancy glasses.

We were so thankful for their thoughtfulness.
They knew that we didn't have time to go out.....so they made an "Out" for us.
They even tended the little ones upstairs while we ate.
(pay no attention to the stack of mending, scattered books, butt wipes, and general Mayhem behind me. The basement is really cute....when clean)
It was exactly what we needed......
and I have a renewed affection for my children too.
Here is a sneak peak of Izzy and Ivy's pattern I just finished.
She who has no name looks adorable in it! Go here and name her....and maybe win stuff

Does anyone know anyone that could do some pattern grading FAST?? Someone with CAD??

Just asking.....

You trained 'em well!

I passed on stopping by to introduce myself because I was in my red snowman pajamas (no bra) and slippers...which is really not fancy dinner attire!

What great kids you have!

What wonderful children you have,it's not all bad having children, can't wait for my little guys to be older enough to make me a cup of tea.
Love the sneak peak but would love to see the rest it looks gorgeous.
Your one very clever lady.
