I'm Starving!!

Don't you hate when you're starving, and your hands are full...with chicken nuggets?

Ellie Smorgasbord

Who needs to blog when you have facebook? Oh yes, I forget there are stories behind pictures and movies. Stories that one day the kids will want to read about...

Let's start with Ellie's school play.

Ellie the Elephant was darling. She was dressed in all gray (found some $6 gray dance pants at Walmart the night before). Too bad the pants seemed to be four sizes too big...Dan kept filming in hopes that we might have an entry for America's Funniest Videos, but alas...her pants stayed on (could you imagine the melt down that would have caused?).

Ellie's dance competition:

Pre-competition prep.

Ellie's group took 4th out of four (ouch) in their division, and Lucy's group took 1st in their division.

Kindergarten Graduation (*sniff*):

Busy day that day, she had graduation that morning with her dance recital that night. Dan recorded her graduation in its entirety (good daddy).

Dance Recital:

She was cute, and had a lot of fans. :)

Don't's just Salvia

I LOVE kissing...

Ellie's teacher informed me that Ellie's response to the part in Alexander's No Good, Very Bad Day when Alexander is forced to watch kissing on TV, and he HATES kissing. Ellie very proudly replied in front of her class, "Not me, I LOVE kissing." Help!?

So Sweet

Rhys is definitely following in his sister's foot steps. He loves balls (also his first word after dad and mom), and babies (possibly his second word). The last couple of nights he points to a "baybay", I'll give it to him, and he'll hug and cuddle the baby doll. He'll even put the baby in his crib before he goes to sleep.

The other night when I put him down, he put his cute, little arm around the doll before falling asleep. It was so tender, and cute.

This is what he looked like today as he was watching his sister play outside with her friends.


Rhys has been so cautious when it comes to walking. He has been standing up in the middle of the floor for the longest time, and anxiously awaits applause. Only recently has he been interested in walking. Still his main mode of transportation is crawling (he's been doing some form of crawling since he was 6 months).

Walking, just another fun stage. :)


Ellie gave tattoos out for Valentine's Day gifts to her class. We had a lot left over. Doesn't she look like she should have a mug shot?

Dan did mention the one on her eye did "kind of look cool".

Ellie loves to share, she wanted to make sure Rhys had some too. She held him down to make sure she applied them on properly.

I should mention, during the month of February, Ellie's class had a letter writing station during centers. One morning I caught Ellie applying makeup...lots of it before school. Usually, I don't let her go to school all dolled up, but I didn't feel like arguing with her that day. At the end of school, Ellie came to my room...pulled out four letters and said, "It worked."

So, there you have it...she's already using her looks to get what she wants. :P
