One Reason...

I love being a mommy....

I get to hear things like this:

"I love you to that house, to our house, to every tree then to the moon and your pretty face and back! That's a lot of love!!!" - Anna

Sweetest moment of my day!!!

Here is a blast from the past of me and my sweet angel girl!!

Valentines Door Hanger!!

A little time consuming but totally easy!!!

Time will tell...

I'm crafting this morning. Can you guess what I'm making?? I'll be back soon :)

Four years = Four shots!

Poor thing got attacked at the doctor's office today!
Milkshakes, gymnastics, and soccer made it better tho....And not to mention: getting to have a night with the favorite baby sitter!

Here's Anna showing off her war wounds before soccer.

And our little house shadow! Caroline picks someone (normally Anna) to copy all day everyday....and she is a good little shadow!!!

Heart shaped soaps

These are so easy to make!! We will be giving these for class gifts on Valentines Day!

Trampoline Hair

Soccer take TWO

We got in the car after practice and Anna says, "okay mommy, that will be enough soccer!"
I said, "Anna! You are good! You didn't have fun?"
She said, "I did but its just so hard!"

She had a tough time not touching the ball with her hand but other than that she did pretty good! I think she will like it in the end!

Caroline on the other hand cannot wait to play!!!!

So, I walk in the bedroom to this picture and hear:

Caroline- "Anna I'm stressed out"
Anna- "why Caroline?"
Caroline- "because they all poo-poo in their pull ups"
Anna- "oh, that's no problem Caroline! We can change them!"

Dare I ask what they are doing... Playing daycare!!

First Soccer Practice

Anna had her first glimpse of soccer last night! She said she thinks she will like it.

"It was so crazy. Everyone was running and running. It was wild but my forehead didn't get wet so I think I will like it"

Who knows how it will go over once the weather gets warm and she does sweat!

Caroline's Mark...

She does this ALL the time!! She will have a total meltdown if you pick them up too. She knows what she likes!

Pretend Phone Call

Anna just came in pretending to be on the phone..

"Hold on one second and I will ask my mom.
Mom, pretend that I am seven okay?"

"Okay, Anna"

"Okay, I've been talking to this boy and he is really sweet. Can I go over to his house and play?"

"Haha, okay! Sure you can"

"Great!" Getting back on her phone she says
"Oh yes! I can definitely come!"

I guess we will start with the boyfriends at age SEVEN!!! Oh, help us!!

Best way to rest...

Anna quote: there are lots of ways to rest. Eyes closed and asleep, eyes closed and awake, and the best... My eyes open and NOT asleep! I'm gonna do that, okay?

Okay, Anna that will be fine! :)
