Happy Pecan Day

Toddlers make messes so fast! I get everything put back together and within hours toys seem to be are everywhere…

My mom has been sick and we hadn’t seen her for the past two weeks. Last night she came over to hang out with the boys and I – yay!

Jeffrey brought MeMa into his “once again messy room” and the first thing he asked was, “Will you clean my room MeMa? Will you clean my room?”

Mommy fail and one more lesson to be taught – how to clean! Definitely necessary I suppose!

So in honor of Pecan Day we (mainly me) cleaned Jeff’s room and put it back to order. We read The Berenstain Bears and the Messy Room and I even got some organization ideas. Ha!

So overall not a very exciting day but I did make Pecan Butterscotch Toffee Bars for dessert. Yum!
