I have plenty of work to do for the rest of the day but I got to play this morning so no complaints are coming from me. I also am tempted to go to a friends get together later this afternoon but that may involve cocktails and then I most likely won't want to work later. hmmm... what to do...

Lemme see ...lots going on over the last few days -Emma's birthday was Friday, Ellie's birthday party was Sunday, Steve left for Tennessee for work today, I had to leave the comfort of my bubble several times today and run errands (so hate that!), I am super super busy with work stuff, it's bizarre to see my website in another language (Tickle Bellies is going international), the candy corn is taunting me each time I pass by the bowl, I think my camera is on its last legs, the tree frog is back on the front porch and he brought a friend, Monday night TV was great last night, my thumb is still really sore, Ellie has another loose tooth, Ellie and I are getting used to our nightly growth hormone shots, Emma found her earring today that she lost at school on Friday (she cried for 45 minutes over it on Friday - they were new birthday earrings), I had a fabulous carmel hot coccoa today at Starbucks and I made $250.00 today by really doing nothing except placing a large order for blank labels for another company using my distributor...I think that was the highlight of my day...that and the caramel hot chocolate.
Here are photos from over the weekend...

Ellie felt terrible about my injury. She is just so sweet. It really looks worse than it feels and having a black nail for Halloween will be pretty cool. I am going to load up on some Tylenol (20 of them sound pretty good) and go to bed.
Here's a photo of my thumb. Hope it doesn't gross anyone out.

Isn't this little tree frog just redonkulously cute? He was hanging out on our front door for a few days last week when we had some rain. He would sleep on the glass door behind the flower container during the day and at night he would feast on on the buglets that the front porch light would lure in. I haven't seen him in a few days but I am glad he stayed with us for a little while. Fingers crossed he comes back again.
Here is where he hung out during the day. We could watch him from inside the house and Ellie thought it was the coolest thing ever! If only the cats could see up that far on the door, I am sure they would be in agreement with Ellie.

Instead we spent our time enjoying all the livestock and fair food. The animals were great, especially the piggies. There was a momma and about 12 little piggies that were the absoute cutest little balls of pink blobs ever. Sadly, I could not get a decent photo because someone had slipped those piggies some redbulls. They were in hyperactive mode running all over. Sliding, skidding, pig piling on top of one another. We had lots of laughs thanks to those little guys. We also saw a 4 hour old calf. The mother still had some signs of birthing around her and the girls were grossed out, yet mildly intrigued. Oh to live on a farm....

Steve and I have already talked about going back to Chicago for another long weekend sometime in the Spring. We learned that 80 inches of snow is normal for the Windy City in the winter months so I don't think we will go in the immediate future. It was also quite the romantic city with many cool hotels, clubs and restaurants. A nice getaway without the girls would be fabulous. I think Emma may kill us though because she was really loving all the shopping in Chicago. That girl has fashion in her blood and loves to window shop. We did treat her to her first leather coat on this trip. (I think we were just feeding the monster though.) Ellie loved the American Girl Doll Store and brought one of her dolls with her for a makeover. We have now been to the American Girl Doll stores in Chicago, NYC and LA. Mall of America in MN is next on the list. My girls are just like me with their love for being in a big city. It was really a wonderful time! Here are my favorite photos.
