As I mentioned in a previous post, the heating element in our oven exploded a few weeks ago. I was only without one for a few days, as Ben was quick to get me a new one. Here's a picture of our poor old oven. Kiersten was quite concerned to see it leaving the kitchen. But happily, it was replaced with this one. Not too huge of a difference looks-wise, but the best thing about it is that it works. Yay!
On St. Patrick's day, Kara spent all day looking for leprechauns, talking about leprechauns, and making green pictures to lure them to our house. When Ben got home from work, he spotted one outside, so we all went out to try and catch him. He was gone, but he left clues all throughout the house, which eventually led us to his delicious pot of gold. It was pretty exciting.
She cut out letters to spell "leprkon" some of the letters are backward.
on tuesday, the girls wanted to do a project, so Evie got to sit in the highchair and eat some num nums.
Jackie sent both girls little treasure boxes for their birthdays. They got to paint them and decorate them. They loved this activity! Thanks again, Jackie!

Of course, Kiersten had to paint her face as well.
The finished boxes. Ben was underwhelmed, but I think they did a great job. They might look nicer if I'd painted them myself, but how would that be fun for the girls? Kiersten's is the flower, and Kara's is the butterfly one.
the girls were in the playroom yesterday, and Evie wandered in. I don't like her playing in there because of all the things she could stick in her mouth. So after a minute, I went in to check on her, and they were all playing so nicely. So I watched her play in there for a few more minutes until lunch time.
She was so happy to be included by her sisters.
Kiersten loves holding Evie, and Evie HATES it. She doesn't want Kiersten to hold her for even one second. It's kinda sad, actually. I don't even know how many times a day I have to say, "let her go, Kiersten".
That's how she got this little boo boo on her head. Kiersten trying to hold her a few days ago, and Evie trying to get away. She got knocked down and hit the bottom of the coffee table.
and that's what we've been doing this week.

I noticed you have a bigger window in your new oven, that will be really nice. It's so nice that Kiersten loves to hold Evie. It's too bad the little squirt won't cooperate. Your girls are so beautiful!
