Walking with my Ellie

Britlyn and Makenna were at a friends house having their first sleep over... a miracle in it's self... anyway, so it was just Ellie and I at home hanging out. She had been so sad that the Britlyn and Makenna weren't home with her, so I asked if she wanted to go for a walk. She got really excited and wanted to go see the horsies (unfortunely we didn't make it on the walk that far). We still had lots of fun walking, making faces, blowing kisses, and singing together. She is definitely one in a million. :)

Spring is in the air

I guess Spring comes early when you live in Southern California. We've had these blossoms on our tree for a week or two now. It is beautiful, but I just wish we'd get a little more winter...

It's raining, it's pouring

Yes, it's true. I am actually updating my blog. :) I've been so bad lately. It's been really really busy. So, living in Southern California doesn't give much hope for a white Christmas. This rain we've been having is as close as we're going to get. We are actually going to stay in a cabin in the mountains the week after Christmas, so we won't be completely without snow. The girls haven't been in snow much in their lives. They are so excited to go, but we'll see how much they love it after 10 minutes of being in it. :) I'm sure we'll hear plenty of, "I'm cold Mommy!" It will still be fun though! They have never been able to make a snowman or go sledding. Aren't those like rites of passage for children?? Anyway, here's our rainy day pictures.

They are waiting for the wind to blow the umbrellas so they can chase them

She says it looks like she's flying

Of course Makenna decided to go barefoot

This is what it looks like to have rain splash in your face

Random Child Thoughts

I've got a few things that Britlyn and Makenna have said recently running around in my head and I want to get them down before I forget them.

Britlyn: "Mommy, what kind of an animal would a unicorn look like if it didn't have it's horn?"

Me: "A horse."

Britlyn: "No. A bloody horse."

I busted up laughing so hard!

To preface this next one, Makenna had been coloring on her legs with a pen and had ink on them. She was now trying to wash it off.

Makenna: "Mommy, I got all the ink off."

Me: "Oh yeah? Great baby."

Makenna: "Yeah, there's just a tiny bit left. People will probably just think it's guts."

Now, may I ask, how on earth is it better to have guts rather than ink on your legs??? Once again, I just busted up laughing.

Last one

Jeremy: "Makenna, how come you never obey Mommy, and you never obey Alyson (our babysitter), but you almost always obey Daddy?"

Makenna: "Because they don't know how to spank hard and you do."

So that's all it takes, huh? Of course how could I not laugh at that? So I did. I just looked at Jeremy and we both just burst out laughing.
