I exist!

 OH EM GEE. This whole time I thought I'd posted at the beginning of the month, only to look and see that I have been MIA since the end of January! I'm here. We're all good. Everyone's busy but in really fun ways. I'm going to update a bunch of posts (like Averson's birthday, SMH) but in the meantime, here's some pictures of the gallon of paint I spilled in the garage at 10:00 at night (but that miraculously did not hit a single vehicle). Then, because it was past my bedtime, I thought I'd use cat litter to clean it up. Chaos ensued. 

This is the after :/

I'm sneakily late posting Averson's birthday, but my awesome, odd little duck turned eleven and it was such a fun day! She recently got a Greenlight debit card so for her birthday, we let her do a "shopping spree" at the mall. She flipped a coin for her spending limit, and then she and a friend spent the morning running amok. I love this age because she was equally excited about t-shirts at Hot Topic and building a Taylor Swift Build-A-Bear. 

Apparently she's eaten the same donut every birthday? I love that an awful lot.

This girl is so fun and we're loving to get to know who she is. Her art is remarkable and she's a voracious reader. She recently did an Improv class and I think that acting might be her "thing." She's got such a fun, quirky vibe and it's been a blast to see her come into her own
