Quick 5

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  #weneedthemoisture

1.  Joya got to go on the coveted Dunkin Donuts date with Daddy.  She had to wait a whole two weeks before it was her turn.  Now we can't drive past Dunkin Donuts without her shouting, "That's where I went with Daddy! Right there! That's where I got my donut! See it??"
2.   If you ignore the weather today and for the next two days, the weather is turning nice, which means we're dusting off the ol' grill.  It's time for our weekly burgers.  Last Friday we grilled some country style ribs that were off the chain.  Seriously.  Grilling is one of our favorite things to do together.  I come up with the brines and marinades, and Lee handles the heat.  We haven't had a terrible result yet.

3.  It's been a fairly quiet week, but the biggest news is probably that on Tuesday, April 14th, Joya turned four and a half.  And then we went to the library, where they have been giving books to four year olds.  Being four, Joya got one.  She's had a big week.

4.  Back when Joya was potty training, she liked the seat on the big potty the best.  So we got rid of the old tiny potty with a broken lid.  Now we're almost to the stage with Bria.  She asks to go potty all the time, which is so inconvenient because she's too little to get on herself, so I have to stop everything to help her.  And the worst part is she has never actually put anything in the potty.  I think she thinks the act of just sitting there IS going potty.  So I borrowed a tiny potty from a friend, and it has solved all our problems.  It is small enough for her to sit on, and we don't even have to take off her clothes, because she's happy just sitting on it with her pants on.  It soothes her craving anyway.  I have no idea how I'm going to know when she's REALLY ready to potty train, but for now this will suffice.

5. And here is the picture queen herself:

It's a four-day weekend in our house!  Are you so lucky?
