Morning with my kiddos

Jess’s sister is pregnant. So a few weeks ago she was helping her sister register for baby things. Hence I was with the kids and figured why not document the adventures of my minions and I. We spent the morning playing at the house then went out for whatever the day has in store for us. First, to the bank. The teller knows me and threw in a third sucker. Yay! I got one too!

It’s in the middle of the food court so we grabbed some lunch while there and ran by Toys-R-Us to take some photos of a few things we might want for Christmas…yes we. Nerf is still fun as an adult.

Then we found face painting. Bee got a Frozen crown and Caulder got a Spiderman picture.
