Fab 5 Friday...and ME!

By all accounts it’s been a pretty fabulous week at A&B Enterprises…

1) We had a great family dinner out on Saturday night. It’s just so pleasant to be able to share a meal together where everyone enjoys their food and is content in their surroundings. {happy sigh}

2) While we were eating on Saturday night, a man sneezed in another part of the restaurant. Baby B said, “Bless you, somebody!”

3) The girls starting sitting on the potty (“like big girls”) this week…per their request! They haven’t produced any output yet, but they are so proud of themselves nonetheless!

4) First at Hubby’s urging, and then of their own accord throughout the day, the girls wished me “Happy Burfday” over and over on Wednesday. At one point I knelt next to Baby A and told her, “You are Mommy’s sweetest birthday present ever.” Baby B, without missing a beat, piped up, “[Baby B] sweetest birthday present, too!”

5) Just this week the girls have started to use the words “maybe” and “probably”. On Thursday morning I asked Baby A if she was going to make stinkies on the potty like a big girl. She said, matter-of-factly, “Yeah, probably.

And what did I do for ME this week?

My birthday fell on Wednesday this year, so I have a couple of “birthday happies” planned for this weekend.

This past week, I’d have to point to the time I devoted to scrapbooking as my “me” time. I am finally caught up (relatively speaking) on a few other things on my list…AND I’m so proud to say I have organized my scrapbooking materials once and for all…so it’s been such a pleasure to spread out and construct a few pages. The only challenge is that I have to watch the clock…I could get lost in it for hours if I weren’t careful!

scrapbooking...god, i suck at that this year. i'm giving up and giving each of the crazies a photo book from shu.tterfly this year and for all the years to follow. it's just easier.

i love when they start saying this like 'probably.' i remember when matt started saying 'one minute' or 'hold on.' it cracked me up. now hailey says 'be right back' like i'm really worried about it or something...hysterical!

Oh I hope to *start* the girls' scrap books this year. Did I mention they are turning two? Maybe it's time to give up! I have everything, it's just not in the actual book!

I can't wait to start potty training!! I think my Mir.alax baby is going to give me a run for my money when it comes time!

Happy Birthday! I'm sorry I missed it!

I never really got into scrapbooking, I just make the photobooks on Snapfish and Shutterfly. It looks like fun, but I'm not that creative.

It sounds like you had a great week! Can't wait to hear about your weekend!

I always feel such a sigh of relief when any meal time is peaceful and enjoyed by all! Looks like you had a nice week and I hope it carries over into the next one!

YEAH for a nice family meal out and how sweet of her to say Bless You!

I gave up on 'real' scrapbooking and have been trying to get into digital scrapbooking - but still haven't taken the time to do much. :-(

Enjoy your birthday festivities this weekend! I'm actually going to get out for a few hours tomorrow night to celebrate a friends' birthday. Can't wait!!!
