Happy Memorial Day!

After Kate and I went grocery shopping this morning (which was quite an adventure as she was hitting me and screaming the whole time), we got together with some other moms and their kids in our complex to paint little wooden cut-outs. Kate and I decided on a pink pig :) And definitely going for the WT look. Just in case she got paint on her clothes. And yes, she sure is scowling in the picture. She's got spunk. That's all I'll say...

Here she is on our patio. She found a rolly polly bug and she's holding him in this picture. Awww...she's being so nice. Oh wait, nevermind, she just threw him down the steps. Hope he's ok.
I decided to make a cake today and decorate it in honor of memorial day. Yep, looks pretty bad. Probably would have looked better if Kate had been napping at that time. Seriously, I used strawberries from a container instead of cutting them up myself. I'll do it better next time. But hey, it's the thought that counts right??

Wow, you made a cake?
That's awesome.
And yes, it sure does look yummy.
I bet everyone was super happy to dive right in for that.
Good times.
Oh, and I totally take off Katya's top when she's painting. It's no fun getting paint out of clothes.

Kate must have some of your sass, judging by the scowl and the throwing of the bug. :) I like how pleased you look in the picture with the cake.

You know, I understand why you took off Kate's clothes to paint, but if I remember painting Dave's ceiling in high school, didn't the paint brush fall on your head? Maybe you should have taken your clothes off, too. Just a thought. But I do love the cake... you'll have to start making flag cakes for the state birthdays now!

Yep...Kate definitely reminds me of you. And way to be with the cake, only next time make it a Texas flag.
