Laura Ingalls

Today is dress as your favorite book character at school. Em wasn't sure what she wanted and I wasn't sure we had much for her to do. Then the thought crossed my mind that some of our friends girls had a Little House on the Prairie party awhile back. So I sent an email out and was told that they had a dress and bonnet. I didn't tell her till I knew for sure we had the goods. When she found out that she could dress like Laura she was so excited and gitty. She told me last night that she couldn't wait to dress up and wear her bonnet. Little House on the Prairie is one of her favorite shows, we also have the books, but have watched the whole 10 series of them. Here are some pictures I took this morning.

The pale has an apple in it for her teacher!

Oh Baby B Where Art Thou?

This morning D-daddy and I were double teaming to get the girls ready for school. I was working on braiding hair and D-daddy was working on tying shoes. I hollered at Baby B to see where he was at. He hollered back and said some "words" like he was telling me something. I figured he was just playing in the pass through of the Laundry room and our bathroom. But he kept hollering at us. I told him to come and he would just yell back. So when I was done I went to the Laundry room to find him here!

I got this today in an email and thought I would post it.

By Maya Angelou '
A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.
When I say.... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!
Pretty is as Pretty does... But beautiful is just plain beautiful!

Little Miss Sunshines first day of Preschool

Today is El's first day of preschool. She wasn't too thrilled about it this morning, which is not uncommon for her with new things. She is not one for change, but I know that once she is there she will be fine. She actually rode with her Aunt L and Nate to school and was excited about that. We will also have our first day of dance class this afternoon. I will post picture of that later. Here are some pictures from this morning.

I call this their beaver smiles!

Little Miss Dress Up

Friday night we had some friends over with their 2 girls and my girls just love to play with them. We had homemade pizza and the girls had a bunch of fun playing. Here is a picture of El dressed up in her gear.

Oh So Serious!!! NOT!

The Cutest Boy Ever!

My baby boy is no longer a little baby. He is walking now more than he is crawling. He is such a sweet boy and I am just enjoying every minute with him. Here are some pictures of some of the things that the little man has been up to lately.

He loves to sit on the bottom of the bookshelves and try to fit in tight spots. Here he is in the kitchen reading Clifford.

El put the chef's hat on him. So here he is cooking in the kitchen. Isn't he the cutest thing you have ever seen?!

Dress Fairy Came to town!

My girls had new dresses Sunday for church. That is because the "Dress Fairy" came to town. My parents came in for a visit and my mom brought dresses she just finished making. She is getting so good at making dresses for my girls and my girls just love them. This one was smocked and she used little buttons to make the flowers, bees, lady bugs, and worm. I think they just came out adorable! Thanks MOM!! You save us tons of money and my kids look so stinking CUTE!!!!

Here are some pictures:
