Open House

We have spent most of the weekend doing "Spring Cleaning" in anticipation of an Open House to be held today, Sunday. We are hoping that there will be some new interest in the home. Pete had to leave Saturday to spend time with his father in the hospital and to stay with his mother at her home so she wouldn't be left alone. That left me with the two girls to get everything in order.

We gave away over 2/3rds of the girls' clothes and half their toys. They have been wearing the same things for two years and some of the items could have made it another year, but I was so anxious to see them move on past size three. Somewhere in the cleaning process, I found time to take a break and coax the girls outside into the hot yard for a few pictures.

Good luck with the open house! I have nightmares about doing that. Ugh.

Pearl's eyes are gorgeous in that last photo but the kiddos are beautiful in all of them. You're such an impressive photographer and I'm so inspired by what you post!

I LOVE the photos! Last pic is beautiful! But they are all lovely honestly.
I did not know that about CA's air quality! I am glad you had a day of blue skies. I know how much I appreciate them too. Where we live its hazy lots of days too.
