Friday Friday Friday!

Happy Friday All! Well this week flew by, but it was a pretty good one. The weather has been gorgeous, my week was less busy than normal, I got to meet up with a friend yesterday and Amelia seems to be feeling so much better than she was last week. All good things! We have a fun weekend ahead. Tomorrow we are going to an Irish Festival at Amelia's school with my family and Sunday I get to photograph newborn twins. Fun! Here is a recap of what our week looked like.

Amelia is such a great helper. She helps me shop, helps me clean the house and does chores without asking. Such a great kid! 

Lacrosse starts next month for Amelia! She took advantage of the nice weather and has been practicing her skills. I can't wait to see how she does with a team sport. 

Mark is gone a lot these days. He works more than full time and goes to school. His schedule is such that Amelia only gets to see him once every few days. She was definitely missing her daddy this week; leaving multiple voicemails for him and creating artwork to surprise him with. I'm glad she will have him to herself for a while on Sunday. 

Gorgeous weather calls for outdoor art and hopscotch. I got this monster box of chalk for $3. Best deal... and a very happy girl!

We had one cold and rainy day this week which definitely called for a pot of chili. This was the best chili I have ever made. I think it's funny that I used to turn my nose up at this until I had Amelia. Now I'm a fan.
