the fun week that ended in a cloud pajamas and rainbow colored body art sleepover

we have been having a fun week hanging out with taylor and karina while austin is out of town on business (i.e. not having as much fun as us!). monday, we went SHOPPING at petsmart, gamestop and then wal-mart...i don't think i've ever spent so much time at any of these places when i had such small lists. kids can have fun ANYWHERE apparently!!! i have to admit it was fun for me too because i played a wii game at gamestop that had me totally hooked (i'm not much into video games really but when i do find one i like, well the children go hungry and the house uncleaned). yesterday, we spent the afternoon at the mall, visiting with ren in the food court and at the mac counter (the girls had her do their make up). then the kids figured out some crazy way to play hide-and-seek...all over the mall...crazy i said!! last night sierra joined us for the night as well and they all put on their matching pajamas (the girls i mean...LOL). we also did some really fun sharpie marker tattoos which we've been debating whether or not is safe and doing some internet searches on it. apparently you shouldn't use it on your skin. hmmm. so we're looking for other markers to use. but in the meantime, i haven't exactly been convinced that it is any worse than some of the stuff we find in our food or air. and we can't forget all the fun playing on the wii..........weeee!! here are some fun pix:

Looks like you guys has an awesome time! And Laura, love your haircut! I want to cut mine! And I love the tattoos too. I better go read about the sharpies, I wonder if it's any worse than what people think about real tattoos? Maybe sharpies aren't contained like real tattoos?

Sharpies have 2 or 3 solvents in them that are carcinogenic and enter the bloodstream upon contact.:) Yep, did my research. lol There are a kind of pen called tattoo pens or something....seems like I saw them in Asheville once. Big surprise right?

I'm so thankful my daughter has such an amazing group of gurlz in her life.:) Not just the gurlz of course....

Hugs and love.....

Those are really awesome sharpie tattoos. Once when Anoif was at gs camp her friends wrote all over every inch of her arms and legs with sharpies. It washed off easily,but her entire head and neck got a mean rash for 3 or 4 days afterward. It was like all of the sharpie vapors had to exit her body somehow and chose her head.....

Did I just hear Barry? Friends and I saw him in Vegas for a friend's bridal shower several years ago! It was surprisingly great. You are such a fantastic artist. I love the arm art.
