May Miscellaneous

This is the last May post! Which means that I'm all caught up until June...just in time for it to be July in less than one hour. 😂 But, that does mean that in a couple days (because I'm on a roll, I'm going to get these all done) I will finally be all caught up.

Okay, so with that said, here are the miscellaneous May pictures! These are the ones that didn't fit into the other posts.

Some fun photos of a girls' morning out with Daddy a few Saturdays ago (Jason bicycled all over with them while I got to stay home with Sue):

A discovery I made one morning after Ellie'd been playing with the scissors:

Luckily, it's nearly impossible to see the spot where she cut. Yay! But then, a couple days ago, I had an almost identical discovery next to Zelda's blanket. Again, very fortunately, you can't tell where she cut at all. We've had several talks about scissors this month.

Also, do you see it? I see it.

Two pages from the Book of Mormon I'm posting because Ellie read these all by herself, out loud, to me and Jason:

Sue, in a car, being adorable:

Mikayla and Zelda:

Susie, at Chik-fil-A, being adorable:

Susie, at a park, being adorable:

Susie helping Daddy unload the dishwasher:

She loves "helping" with this and has broken dishes in the past by pulling them out a bit too forcefully from the dishwasher so that they fling on to the floor. When I took this picture, Jason was very quickly moving from Susie to the cupboards and back, taking the dishes from her before any accidents could occur.

Susie, in a shopping cart, being adorable:

This lovely bread-and-spaghetti flower, made by Ellie, that I found while cleaning up after dinner one night:

Susie watching the storm out the window with her sisters:

Susie intently watching Daddy open the vitamin jar because she really wanted one too:

This "extra large" lemon (they were all this size!) at the grocery store:

Ellie's grocery list:


One minute later:

Ellie and the moon cacti:

One of the many lizards we caught this month:

Zelda's Tea Party

Zelda is such a funny, wonderful girl. She loves stuffed animals (especially her dogs, Rover, Big Rover, Little Rover, and Other Rover)(she named them herself, can you tell?), real animals, baby dolls, dress up, and Moana. Her latest obsession is Blaze and the Monster Machines and was absolutely thrilled today when she was able to earn some little die-cast Blaze trucks to play with. She has a strong spirit in a tiny body and we absolutely and utterly adore her.

A few weeks ago I walked into the playroom to find Zelda had set this tea party up with her animals, and it melted my heart:

I love this girl.
