Not-so-lazy Saturday

You would think, just by looking at us, that we had a lazy Saturday. The girls just took off their pajamas, are in the bathtub, and are going to put on fresh pajamas afterward. (It's 6 p.m.) Actually, Lorelei had already changed out of her pajamas. She was wearing this:

I unpacked a bunch of next-season, next-size clothes for her today, and she chose to wear this "workout" outfit that used to be Syd's and that she kept telling us was her bathing suit. (That shirt fits her better than it ever did Sydney, thanks to her more athletic build.) 

Chet also took the time to change out of his pajamas, but he didn't really have a choice since he went to the Commissary (for those of you who don't know, the Commissary is a grocery store on a military base).

Come to think of it, Ford is also out of his pajamas and on his third outfit of the day. But that's because he's so fastidious and likes to look snazzy.

But Sydney and I definitely did NOT put on real clothes, and I didn't even bother to put my contacts in today. Syd added a  tutu to her ensemble though:

There she is, glued to the movie "Frozen." I think she watched it four times today. We bought the girls "Frozen" and "Tangled" for their Easter baskets, but caved last night and went ahead and let them open and watch "Frozen." Syd was confused as to why her friend next door had the ability to watch "Frozen" in the comfort of her own home, and with rain in the forecast for today, Chet and I knew we needed something special to keep the kids distracted while we continued to put the house in order.

So, back to the lazy Saturday. The girls DID have a lazy Saturday, and breathed nary a breath of fresh outside air, but Chet and I worked hard to unpack/organize/decorate. It really did rain all day, so it was a perfect day for such chores, but we're still in that unpacking stage where you can work all day and still be surrounded by a big mess, making you feel like you accomplished nothing (even though you did). For example:

Yikes. But I'm trying to stay positive here, so I'll have you know that all of that cardboard is finally empty of pictures (we have a picture problem, meaning that we have too many pictures to hang and not enough walls to hang them on), and that's a clean load of laundry on the couch. 

Hope you had a great Saturday!
