Happy Pi day!!

So as many of you know Saturday was also Pi day!  (March 14th…or 3/14…or 3.14….get it?)  Unfortunately with all the crazy fort building going on here we forgot to make our pie!! So we celebrated Sunday with a yummy chocolate chip pie! Plus Grandpa Layman comes over for Sunday dinner so he got to enjoy some pie too. I had never made it before but it was in the Official Nestle Cookbook…so you know it’s gotta be good!

It’s basically like a really gooey chocolate chip cookie in a pie crust.  You serve it warm with ice cream.

Emmy liked it so much she ate it with her hands!  Usually I would step in…but after all it was Pi day!

Saturday Morning Fun!!

So on Saturday’s Alex and I take turns sleeping in.  This Saturday Alex let me sleep in and then I got up with the girls and he took a nap.   Emmy wanted to watch a movie in our bed so Alex went and took his nap in Emmy’s room.  While we were watching the movie Emmy kept making a tent for her dolls with the comforter.  So using my leg as a tent pole I made a tent for her and I with the comforter!  Then we decided to make an all out fort using mom and dad’s bedding!  So here are the before and afters!

We started with just a boring old bedroom…

and transformed it into a totally AWESOME fort! 🙂

Then we went and woke dad up to come see!  He wasn’t super thrilled about getting up but he had a lot of fun in the tent with Emmy!

Two expert fort builders! (Please keep in mind this was a Saturday so I hadn’t showered yet or anything! haha)

Emmy wanted to take a picture!  She’s getting a lot better!  This one actually had both of us in it!  We usually get just an arm or an extreme closeup of an eye or something!  Good work Emmy!

Just making a few minor repairs to the roof!

As you can see we used  Kaylee’s crib to hold up part of the fort.   She was completely out the entire time!  What a sweetie!
