This coming weekend I get to participate in photography class taught by my friend, Ashley. In preperation for her crash course, I purchased a new lens for my camera and took some time practicing with it – here are a couple of pictures of Lillie that I liked. She is growing up; she spent nearly 30 minutes playing with Madison’s tea party set. She set it up just like she has seen Madison do and even pretended to drink out of the cups.
Goodbye tooth No. 3! March 30, 2009
Madison has had a tooth that we have been anxiously waiting to come out for a couple of days. Finally, tonight while she was eating her corn dog it came out. We are thankful she didn’t swallow it!!
Here is picture of Eli trying to catch some snow on his tongue. Hard to believe we had snow on Saturday and right now it is 71. Welcome to Oklahoma.
Cindy Lou Who March 17, 2009
For the last two weeks at school Madison’s class has been talking about Dr. Suess and all the amazing childrens books he wrote. For the last day of the unit they all got to dress as their favorite Dr. Suess character; Madison picked Cindy Lou Who from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. She was the only Cindy Lou in her whole class and the only one in the school with her hair done up so high. Someone even asked to take a picture of her posing with their son!! Good thing Aunt Hannah had been in Suessical the Musical and we knew the trick to getting her hair up just right.
Park Time…Finally! March 6, 2009
Yesterday we were finally able to put on shorts and take a trip to the park. There were tons of people there and it was obvious that everyone has been waiting for a nice day to break out the camera…we were no exception.
Spiderman Shoes March 3, 2009
Yesterday I ventured out with Lillie and Eli with the intention of taking advantage of Kohl’s buy one get one free on shoes. After an hour of trying on shoes we had finally settled on one pair for Eli and one for Lillie only to find out that the shoes we selected were not part of the sale. Eli was so disappointed (he was already wearing his new shoes), so i had to try to make it right. Earlier he had begged for some Spiderman shoes that I absolutely hated, but in an attempt to ease the distress of an hour wasted, I decided to grab the last pair of Spiderman shoes in his size off the clearance rack. As his eyes lit up I said, “You can’t wear them to school and you can’t wear them to church.” He responded, “Okay, no school, no church.” Needless to say, he wore them to preschool this morning to show his friend Jimmy. I still hate the shoes, but is fun to let him have a little self expression.
