Around Here

Here's Talia eating solids for the first time. She loves it!

Derrick's family has this thing where they try to keep one eye closed, one eye open. When I looked at a picture I took of Talia, it was so funny to me that she had that face.
 And, the normal picture:
 We took a new picture of Caleb shooting with his bow because he was Star of the Week in his kindergarten class and they had to bring in a few pictures. The last one we took he looked so little. It's amazing how good he's gotten at aiming.
Talia and Daddy:
The kids came running in the house telling me to come look. We saw a full, vivid rainbow. The picture doesn't do it justice.

Stories:
  • Brynn came up to me and asked me to take out her pony tail. I said, "Sure, why?" She said, "Because I want to sing Let It Go." In case you don't know, Elsa takes out her hair in that song.
  • I made Brynn a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, she took one bite then said, "You're an excellent cook Mom." She also told me at dinner that I made her excellent rice with butter and salt. Why thank you, maybe I'll start a restaurant.
  • Brynn is always having her Cinderella, Belle and Rapunzel dolls fight for her Flynn Ryder. Today she took her Belle and told the Cinderella I was playing with, "I'm mad that you married Flynn Rider." I told 'Belle', "You should marry Christoph, he's a nice guy." Brynn says, "No! He's not handsome." For the first time today I tried to explain that we don't just like people for what they look like but also how they act. I said that Christoph was funny and kind. Brynn was nodding her head like she understood. So when I mentioned again about Christoph, she gave me the same "not handsome" response.
