To-Do List

Tonight as I was putting Caroline to sleep she told me that her throat hurt and asked for a drink. This is usually a tactic she uses to stay up a little later, her throat hurts, she needs to use the bathroom, she needs to tell us something important, or she needs just ONE more hug & kiss.
Here is our conversation...
Caroline - "Mommy, my throat hurts. Can you make me some warm milk and honey?"
Me - "I think your throat is okay. I haven't heard you coughing today."
Caroline -"Well, will you put it on your To-Do List for tomorrow to make me some warm milk and honey?"
Me -"Sure Caroline, I will do that. I don't want to forget."
I couldn't help but laugh at her. She knows me so well. I can't accomplish much w/o my trusty To-D0 List.

Face Painting

Caroline has been begging me for weeks to do some face painting. And the wonderful mom that I am, I have been putting her off. (not my cup of tea - face painting) Well, today was the day. She had seen a commercial on Noggin about a project for face painting the characters Rintoo and Tolee from the TV show Ni Hao Kai- Lan. She so badly wanted to have her face painted like Tolee.
I have never done face painting before and realized today that I could never make a career out of it or join a traveling fair as a Carney. :) Caroline thought she looked awesome though. Thank goodness.


Finished product - not my best work.

Kenzie had to get in on the action as well.
I just improvised this.

She loved it!

Good Morning

I was lucky enough to wake up to this yesterday morning...

Caroline - "Good morning Mommy."

Me - "Good morning Caroline, did you have good sleep?"

Caroline - "Yes."

Me - "Good, I'm glad."

Caroline - "I'm glad you're my mommy."

That just made my day... all day.

I woke up this morning to find a card on the kitchen counter from my husband. This doesn't happen very often and when it does it always puts a smile on my face.
It read...
Being a stay-at-home MOM means you're the CEO, Director of Operations,
and Head of Finance of your own company.
A company that has pooped on you, literally, but still, IT'S A COMPANY.

Best Friends

Tonight the girls were playing dress up and putting on a recital for us in Caroline's room. They were so sweet dancing arounda nd 'round in circles in their pretty dresses. Roy and I loved watching them and can't believe how fast the two of them are growing up.

Every morning after the girls wake up, I ask each one if they had good sleep and if they had sweet dreams. This morning I asked Makenzie what she had sweet dreams about and she said..."Friends mommy". And I said, "Which friends'? And Makenzie said "Elizabeth". This just broke my heart because her friend Elizabeth just moved to Tennessee. They where in preschool and Moppets together. I hope that we can keep them in touch. Makenzie is only two years old but understands she has friends. It's so sweet.

So tonight Roy and I asked the girls who their friends were and Makenzie said that Caroline was her friend. So sweet!! We asked Caroline the same question and she said that Emma, Claire, Maggie and Rylie were her friends. We said, "What about Makenzie"? Caroline responded, "Makenzie can't be my friend, she lives with me".
Alrighty then.

Cutie Pie

I just can't resist this cute face.

Fall Fun

I took the girls last week to pick out their pumpkins at a local farmer's market. They had a blast deciding which pumpkin to choose, whose would be the biggest, etc... You get the point. Caroline was very excited to get home and decorate hers with the Mr. Potato Head decorations. She loves this little pumpkin so much she actually put it on a pillow, with a blanket to rest and gave it a "guy" to hold while it slept. How cute!! If you notice, the Mr. Potato Head is holding his "guy" awfully tight. :)

Bedtime Story

How sweet is that sleeping baby? She isn't a baby anymore, so big at two years old. I love watching the girls sleep. They are so peaceful, innocent and without a care in the world. I could just kiss that face all day long. Oh ya, I do. :)
I laughed so hard when I went in to wake Kenzie up from her nap. I found her sound asleep with her book still on her lap. I guess she just couldn't keep her eyes open anymore.

Sweet dreams baby girl, I Love You!!

While I was gone...

Here are just a few of the things I accomplished while I was away from my blog....

Pictures of Caroline and Taylor Swift

Caroline and I just before leaving to see Taylor Swift in concert.

Taylor Swift - outfit # 3 or 4 I think.

Taylor Swift singing Love Story.

Caroline & Taylor Swift

Caroline loves to listen to music and just happens to like country music like her daddy and I. When I heard that Taylor Swift was coming to town, the tickets couldn't go on sale fast enough. Caroline loves Taylor and especially loves to sing her song "Our Song". Only Caroline has always called it the "Mama Don't Know" song. So cute!!
I know that at 4-years old, that may be a little too young for a concert. I asked if she wanted to go and she said yes. Of course she did!! I'm sure she didn't understand the concept of a concert or that she actually wouldn't see Taylor in person, but I just couldn't resist. What a fun experience for us to share together.

I loved seeing her face when we walked to our seats (almost 20 rows from the top) and seeing her assess her surroundings. I loved that she wanted to look around with the binoculars, eat her giant pretzel with cheese and get to drink Sprite in her own huge cup. When the music began, she stood up and danced her little heart out. Too bad she wasted all that energy on the opening act. By the time Taylor made it to the stage, Caroline was still excited, still doing some dancing and still using the binoculars. At the fourth song, she told me she was ready to go home and see daddy. I knew it. I didn't expect anything less from my 4-year old. She had a new experience, had fun and was ready to get back home. She finally curled up on my jacket in her seat and fell asleep. (I wasn't ready to leave - Mommy likes Taylor too.)
Thank you for a wonderful evening Caroline, you too Taylor. You Rock!!!
