Ain't nothin' like the school carnival to make you feel better!
Yesterday started out as a fairly bad day for me. What with waking up late to begin with and the too many to count mini-disasters that happened throughout the day, I was ready to throw in the towel. My house still isn't quite recovered from the day, and isn't likely to be until the end of this somewhat crazy week.
However, the girls' room is clean. Mind you, it was looking like Hurricane Ike had torn through there earlier in the day, but I told them that they couldn't go to the school carnival until their homework was done and that room was spotless. Too bad there isn't a carnival every day to give them more incentive to keep the place looking presentable on a more regular basis.
They cleaned it, so we went to the carnival, albeit nearly an hour late. We had a lot of fun eating sno-cones, getting balloon animals, playing in the bounce tents (that's the castle there), doing silly carnival games (the price of tickets was only 50 cents this year, and the silly games only cost one ticket!), and spending time together. Definitely a spirit-raiser.
Here are some pictures:
(Chloe lost her top front tooth on Sunday night! Bria actually hit her in the mouth (accidentally, I understand) and knocked it out! It was loose before though, don't worry. Doesn't she look cute?)
