Day 9:: The Raiger Strikes AGAIN & more...

Clearly y'all have recognized I can't go without words. I'm trying to use fewer but OBVIOUSLY "none" is not even an option.

My day started by preparing our home for some fun out of town visitors, while I prepared our home Paige was getting ready too {clearly unbeknownst to me, until she walked out "caked-up"}. It was caked in her nostrils too.

Do you know how hard it is to discipline a child after you tell them to be still so you can take their picture to share their mischievousness?

The rest of the day went much better...

The marshmallows would make great Valentine's... either on a stick or paired with hot cocoa packets!

Happy Friday!

haha....I can't believe how much Paige gets into! I think my daughter is mischievous until I read your posts on Page - it's just so funny though, so how can you stay mad? love the valentines goodies - now I'm wanting to go get some cute sprinkles and do the same!

oh my!! That Paiger is such a mess!
I'm now craving smores after seeing those pictures, those are beautiful and probably tasty too!?

Thanks! I really needed that laugh. I think I could substitute "Swaisie" for "Raiger" in so many of your posts. We are quite into makeup at our house, too.

That cutie knows she can get into some stuff! The treats look yummy!

Cous said...

She wanted to be made up for her guests! She is such a stinker, but soooo precious! Love those lips!! She cracks me up! Love You!

Dianne said...

Stories like this are exactly why I put those toddler doorknob thingys on my bathroom door AND I have cabinet/drawer locks! LOL! I have my very own version of Paige in my house, too :)

Oh, I am sooooo happy you are "back." A Darby post with little to no words, and no pics of your crafts,etc is a much more boring, bland, and depressing world. I LOVE to see your pics, funny and insightful posts, recipes, and crafts! I am thankful for you, even though it is long distance! <><<

Katie said...

All I gotta say is that at least she ain't a boy :)

and that I am totally gonna have to steal that marshmellow idea - YUM!

Paige is a trip! I know what you mean about taking pictures, then disciplining. I do the same thing... ineffectively, though.
And, in an ironic twist, I saw a painting of Jeremiah's mom's at the foot doctor office in Huntsville the other day. Doo doo doo doo.
And I want to come to your house just for the sprinkles!! What a line up!!

hey, girl,
i use the same toothpaste! :)
i'm absolutely miserable these days, so keep praying! I feel so FAT and, although I'm not hurting as much in the tailbone area, there's still a lingering, slight pain. I'm so SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW moving around. I despise this last month of pregnancy, so you can pray for my attitude, too! :)
I miss you, too, friend, and I love you. Will post on the sciatic issue and a belly pic soon!
