Friday MK and I decided to give the girls a splash day. Coco & Eli were in hog heaven!!! They may as well have been in hot tubs. They were so happy and probably more happy that they each had their own personal pool. Cora was in the big girl deep end pool because we filled it too high!
While Eli practiced her entering and exiting the pool skills,
Cora worked very hard on her bubble-making skills!
Whoa! Swimming is so exciting!
Friday night we celebrated Tia Kena’s or as Eli says, “Ten-Ah” birthday with dinner and dessert. Here is JD, Kena & Eli showing off her Abuela-made new bracelet. I dolled up Eliana for Tia’s visit with chongitos, her pearl necklace and her new gold slippers but because Eli can never have enough adornment, she decided to color her face with markers during dinner:
Today I endured the agony and despair of getting threaded for the first and last time in my life. I suspect JW tipped the threading lady because he enjoyed watching me writhe in pain! When he asked her if she was pulling the brow hair by the root, I was quick to say, “YES, it is definitely coming up by the ROOT!” Eli was captivated by the whole thing but I felt sad knowing that one day she may have to endure the same hardship, especially since it’s looking like she is getting JW’s great eyebrows. Afterwards we treated her to a little joyride:
Here is Eli watching me try on sunglasses. Let’s see how long I can keep my sunglasses before breaking them, losing them or leaving them at someone’s house! I think this is my 3rd or 4th pair this year!!! I hear this trait is genetic…although Eli still has all her sunglasses!
We also stopped by Lammes’ and got treats! They had samples of brownie fudge- yum! We were very happy to find they had sugar-free lollipops! Those really saved us at Costco since we were pushing Eli way past her nap!! I had never seen a happier kid strapped into a grocery cart!
I hope you enjoyed seeing our weekend! And tomorrow is church day! Or as Eli says, “Chuh”. I hope she doesn’t get mad again that we only go to one service now. That girl likes her church friends!
