Miss A in '08

I wanted to jot down a couple of Miss A memories before they are forgotten. Above is a self portrait she drew. I, of course, think it is beautiful. Way above average for a 4 year old!! But my favorite part, she remembered her bow!!! A mean really who cares if you have 19 fingers. Distract them with a bit of grosgrain perfection.
Miss A was lying down in the playroom one day contemplating the meaning of it all. Or watching Finding Nemo. I can't seem to recall which. Anyway, she asked for a blanket. I brought her one and she looked up at me sweetly and said, "No Mom, I need the purple one. It's monogrammed." My heart nearly swelled out of my chest!!!

A New Year

Well, it's a new year. I have no idea where 2008 went. I AM going to blog more. I spend time everyday looking at them, I WILL do my own. Does it sound like I mean it??!!

Christams was fun. I really wanted the girls to be able to stay home and not have to travel on Christmas day. So we hosted for the first time. I don't think much faith was put in me because more food was brought then you can imagine. Sooooo many leftovers. All in all it was a fun stress free day. Both Hubby's brothers where here and I know that meant a lot to him.

Miss A & Miss L recieved S'mores the pony. You know, the big robot one. I t was a gift from my mom and dad. I'm pretty sure Miss A knew it was coming though. We were in the grocery store on day before Christmas and she was acting pretty sassy. I reminded her that Santa was watching and it was possible he would not bring presents. She thought for a second, then mumbled, "I'm still getting a pony." I think even the bag boy was surprised by her, shall we say, spunk.

Another funny. While driving down the road Miss A says to Miss L, "Eww chicken nuggets. You know what those are made of?" I thought to myself here it comes she's finally put it together. Chicken = dead bird But to my relief the answer, "It's made of potatoes." Crisis averted, well delayed anyway.
