Still Rockin the Nightgown

Jenna has always loved this Ariel nightgown.  We can't convince her to retire it.

Long live the Ariel nightgown.  It might turn out to be a nice shirt someday.

Jump for Joy!

Tonight Jenna taught the lesson at family home evening.  She taught about joy and to finish up we took "jump for joy" pictures.  They turned out pretty cute and wanted to share.  (Jenna has the stomach flu and threw up multiple times tonight, but at this moment she was feeling pretty good.)

Crazy Hair Day!

Jenna was a little nervous walking out the door with this "do" for crazy hair day.  "What if I'm the only one?" she said to me nervously right before walking out the door?  Haven't we all felt that pang of nerves before arriving at a costume party?   I think she looks who-tastic in honor of Dr. Suess week.

Happy Halloween

Our kids were Raven Queen (from Ever After High), Aurora, A Ninja and Pirate Princess. 
A few friends asked, "how do you get Annette to keep her hat on?" Anytime she would grab for her hat, I'd say, "ahh!" which is baby lingo for "no" in our house.  This is the sequence of pictures I took right after I gave her the "ahh!" for trying to take it off at the kids Halloween parade.   You can see she is pretty sensitive to reprimands.  She was a happy pirate the rest of the day, promise!

April Fool's Fun

The world of pinterest, facebook, blogger, and the like has given us a mixed bag when it comes to parties and holidays.  On one hand it's awesome to skip the step where I have to think, and let someone else come up with all sorts of cute ideas for games, decorations, and food.  But on the other hand, I think we all feel the pressure to make every holiday amazing, memorable, and pin worthy.  I of course did not think of the sneaky meatloaf/mashed potato cupcake for April Fools Day, nor did I execute it with skill, but I did take a picture! So now everyone else can see what I cool mom I am and feel that they too must make these next April Fools Day.  Good thing I am behind on my blogging so that you have many months to prepare.
