I am a sucker for this little girl.


I had one of these when I was a kid and LOVED it. I could not resist it when I saw it at the Dig, but it did not have records. I called my friend Stephanie to find out if she had ever seen any records and she said no. But she would look on e-bay for me while I waited. (she is such a good friend) She found some and bought them for me right there.


My intent was to save it for Christmas.... but I never got it out of the back of the van and she kept asking for it. (note to self stop being so lazy and take toy out of the back of van or at least where child can not see it) So today when she asked for the 100th time I gave in.


She is just so cute, it is hard to say no. (boy this is going to give me trouble later in her life;)

This is not rocket science Mom

Elijah is really enjoying school he is starting to spell, sound things out, seeing numbers everywhere, adding, and telling us stuff that we should know.

At b-fast today:

E: Do you know what color you get when you mix green and blue?
Z: What color?
E: A kinda greenish blue.
(boy they learn a lot at school these days heeheehee)

Ada is spending tons of time talking about what her piggy is going. Piggy has a mom, dad and a brother. And piggy has LOTS of pink stuff. The other day we had this conversation:

A: Piggy's mom is here.
Z: Good.... Do you know that my mom and dad are coming to visit?
A:(funny look) no.
Z: Do you know who my mom and dad are? You have meet them before.
A: No
Z: My mom and dad are your grandma and grandpa.
A: (more funny looks) Mom that is just not how it works! (smile giggle)
(OK maybe she is not ready for that yet.)

Glad she can do it but it freaks me out!

What you ask? Our dear Ada Liz is putting her own shoes on and she almost always puts them on like this:



I feel like her feet are on backwards.



I have been working on a fun craft project, but can not show it as it is a gift. Will show soon.

Craft and Fall and Stories (what more could you want;)


Here is on of the 4 place mates that I made for Kari at the quilting weekend. I love the way that they come out. (Oh and the pocket is for silverware not phones;)





Yesterday the kids and I had our flu shots (it only took 2 plus hours!) and after we went to the Big M (playland) and to get pumpkins.



So in the playland Elijah and Ada where playing with this little boy (smaller then E and older then A) they where playing very well and having lots of fun until.....

I saw E pushing A up the stairs (trying to help her up) and she fell on her face. As E was pulling her down by the leg the other boy steps over A to get up the stairs and E says "Hay don't step over my sister!" (again as he was pulling her by the leg. Gotta love it.



What could be better then hanging out with your little sister in a skull?



When we got home she had to tell our kitties that she saw these guys (I was afraid that she was going to slip one into that coat of hers:)



Ahhhhhh.



Still wearing that shirt that Santa made him last year.... wander what he will want from Santa this year?






I think we made a wrong turn somewhere.
