What Happens in the Brady House.....

...is usually a little crazy.  I know all houses with any aged kid is crazy.  But, I am too tired to care about them.  I am having trouble keeping up with this crew.

Your kids make dresses out of paper towels and tape, then put on a show in the hall, right?  (There is video, but there was a couple of wardrobe mishaps.)

One of first days at the pool.

Love a Tapefetti fashion show (Charley made this one, she loves to do a photo shoot).

OK, this next thing was FUN!  You need some sun, objects and some fancy paper.  

 Place paper with objects in the sun for a couple of minutes, rinse and voila!  Overhead sun would have been better. 


This is the paper we used.  I bought it from Discount School Supply.

Mike spent some time one Sunday cleaning the courtyard.  The kids made this mess after that in minutes. 

Your kids harass the pets too right?  OK, this was actually funny.   That was my fiber fill they pilfered from my art room.

Got to love when they wake up in the same pjs.


Yeah, your kids get swollen eyes too right?  Doctor never figured out why it happened.  It took almost three days to go down.

Making letters with your body?  This is a K.

Charley in her cowgirl outfit.  She had a field trip that day to a horse farm.

She loved it.  Like I need her riding. 

This was Sunday.  It was Giraffey's birthday .  We had a candle in Giraffey's pancakes, (forgot to take a picture of that) but we got the pictures of Giraffey's birthday ice cream after lunch and....

...her birthday cupcake after dinner (lovely GF cupcakes - they were not horrible.....).

That takes care of some of the cuter photos of the girls.  I have some other stuff to post, like the baby birds living in our gutter holder or Mike said eaves - right outside the kitchen window in our courtyard.  Oh wait, here are the pictures. Click on them to see the finches.  They were hungry little buggers.  And then one day, they were flying away.  Made me a little sad.

I was hoping a pair of cardinals built a nest in a courtyard bush.  I saw them going into the bush with stuff in their beaks, but I looked and didn't seen a nest.  All around the house are nests.  Robins, squirrels, spiders.  There is a positive side to not using a lot of chemicals and pesticides.  You know, besides the copious amount of maple trees/weeds growing.
