Life Gets in the Way

Things have been very busy recently, which has caused some radio silence on Mousekatots. Both of our jobs have been requiring some extra work so I have been too tired at the end of the day to do much of anything except to try to prop my eyes open to watch some TV.

But, last weekend we had a lot of fun going shopping and Lily was able to use her chore money to buy an Ariel doll that she had been eyeing up at the Disney Store. She was so proud!

Then, yesterday evening it was my mom’s birthday so we had a wonderful celebration full of dinner, cake and presents.

Here are some photos from our fun weekend and birthday:


Since I have Fridays off it is usually spent at either the Library or doing things around the house. Since this past Friday was pretty rainy and gloomy we stayed home and put our hair in curlers, made “dino chips” and counted our coins to see if we had enough money to buy our Ariel doll.



On Saturday we went to our favorite restaurant for breakfast, did shopping at the mall, including get Lily her Ariel doll and having fun in the Disney Store, tried a new Mediterranean restaurant and watched “Sing.”



Like I said earlier, Wednesday was my Mom’s birthday and we celebrated by going out for dinner, having cake and opening presents. Everyone had fun, but I think Lily enjoyed herself the most.

Did you have a fun weekend or exciting week so far? Leave your comments below.



We Have a Three Year Old



It is so hard to believe that our little Mousekatot is already three years old. Time has flown by too quick.

We had a birthday party for her earlier in the month, which I will do a blog post about later, but on her actual birthday we wanted to do something special to commemorate the day.

We started off the day having breakfast at her favorite local restaurant.

The servers were very nice and even came out and sang to her and gave her a special dessert.

We then went to the Pittsburgh Children’s Museum because Lily wanted to go back to the Daniel Tiger exhibit.

In addition to visiting with Daniel Tiger, Lily also played with various types of balls in the garage area of the museum and tested out different cars that she created and even made a track where she raced Matchbox cars.

We also took Lily to Build-A-Bear so she could make a new stuffed friend. She choose to make Ruble from Paw Patrol. (Also, the clothes for the bears also fit Duffy the Disney bear.)

We ended the day by having dinner at one of her favorite restaurants that is a local Tex-Mex chain.

I am so glad and thankful that we were able to celebrate the day with Lily.
