Crazy weekend, crazy kids

It just dawned on me that this is the last weekend we'll have all four kids for a long time.  Steve's schedule shifts this week so that he's off on Fridays and Saturdays.  So we've been trying to have lots of fun activities to do together.  

Yesterday, in the early afternoon, we had a little fire going in the yard and we made s'mores.  I took pictures. 

After dinner I made a batch of instant vanilla pudding, separated it into four cups and added food coloring.  VOILA!  Instant fingerpaints!  In the end, they were just shoving it in their mouths.  I took pictures. 

Today for lunch, we're making our own pizzas.  Wayne is gathering the ingredients together.  I will take pictures.

Hopefully, despite having the kids here this week, I'm hoping to steam clean the living room carpet because it sooo desperately needs it.

Also, much scrapping to do.  I think I've finished my sister's wedding album and I'm coming into the homestretch on Joey's First Year album and my Las Vegas trip book (which happened when Andy was an infant!)  Also, will be sending out cards this week that I promised to people and listing stuff on my new Etsy shop including handstamped and painted Christmas tags and note pads.

I saw this all the time, but you guys have SO much fun! How do you have such energy? We hiked some yesterday but I am a lousy, boring mom today, not one fun craft.

Pudding fingerpaint - wow you are fun!

Never mind mimicking you - can I just be your fifth kid?

If we don't keep them busy, they attempt to mutiny.

I got the pudding idea out of Parents magazine. I keep tons of vanilla pudding on hand for my famous Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies so I was able to whip the paint up in a matter of minutes.
