My youngest Colton had a play date with one of his buddies and he was concerned that I would be lonely while he was gone. He told me that his other buddies Mario and Luigi would keep me company while he was away. I was touched by his concern for Mommy so I thought it would be fun to show him the exciting adventures that Mario and Luigi had while he was gone and how much help they were to me, so without further ado I give you The Adventures of Mario and Luigi!!
After dropping Colton off at his friend's house, Mommy made a quick trip to the grocery store and picked up some groceries. When Mommy got home, Luigi decided to help me put the groceries away. Easy MacN'Chees is a staple at our house - its easy and quick to make and the boys like it, plus its a break from the usual turkey and cheese sandwich or peanut butter and jelly sandwich they they get for lunch. Even Luigi likes it!!
While Luigi was busy helping me put the groceries away, Mario decided to take a T.V break and watch All My Children. Seriously though, like Mario really needs more drama in his life - Princess Pea getting kidnapped by Bowser all the time is drama enough for this little guy.
Luigi proved to be a big helper for Mommy. He helped me sort and put away the laundry. But he did make a few mistakes while sorting and put my shirts in Daddy's drawers by mistake. Oops!!
After All My Children, Mario decided to help me with a couple of jewelry pieces that Mommy needed to finish up. Yes that is what Mommy's jewelry table looks like right now. Maybe Mario can help me organize it later?
While Mario helped Mommy with her jewelry, Luigi took a well deserved break and chatted on the phone with his friend Yoshi about all the mushrooms they were going to eat later on for dinner.
Soon it was time to get the mail, so Mario went out and got the mail for Mommy. It was a bunch of junk mail and he put it into the recycling tub because he knows how important it is to recycle!! (And Mario wanted me to tell you all that after looking at this picture he realized he needs a bit of a tan!)
Mommy got some painting done this afternoon and Luigi helped too!! He is a great painter - look at all the shabby white frames he helped paint for my sale this weekend!
Finally, Mario and Luigi made a Starbucks run and shared a Iced Chai Tea Latte because that is what good brother's do. They sat on the porch and enjoyed their tea and got a little sun. But Mommy was sure to make sure they put on sunscreen so they wouldn't get a sunburn.
