Dress Up Like a Book Character Day

Monday at school everyone was supposed to dress up like a book character and Audrey chose to be Lisa from Corduroy. I made her a super-short 60s style dress (though I think it turned out a little more 70s) and made Corduroy some green corduroy overalls with one button. A dinner napkin finished her off.

More quotes

Last night I got back from a run and came in to get some water and invited Audrey with me on a cool-down walk. I told her to go ask Dad if she could go because I heard bath water running and didn't know if he wanted her to get a bath.

So she asked him, "Dad I'm going for a walk, is that okay?" He (not knowing I was going too) said, "No way." When I walked in to say hi and Josh said, "Oh I didn't know you were here. I thought Audrey was asking to go on a walk by herself."

Audrey said, "WHAT?! Is Dad cray-cray (crazy)? Kids don't go on walks by themselves! That's how kids get lost forever!"

Stuff they say...

Wanted to jot down a few of the things they have said lately.

Clark has really been talking a lot, adding sentences and is a little parrot. "Have a great day!" or "More bilk (milk) please, Mommy." or "bye bye Cheese shoot ball with daddy" which means (Can we please go to ChuckECheese and shoot baskets with dad?).

When I picked up Audrey from school on Friday she saw me walking up to the playground and I heard her tell her teacher, "Mrs. H! It's my mom! And she's wearing a skirt!!"

Just now she told me, "Mom, you and I are obsessed with Princess Genovia, aren't we?" (She means Princess Mia from Princess Diaries which she saw part of in a hotel last year.)

Easy Living

Pretty sure that there's not many things better in life than being in our backyard on a beautiful (humidity and mosquito free) evening with the kids. I am getting worried about Audrey. Just the fact that she already has a look like that at age 4. Plus, Shannon told me that they ran into a boy classmate of Audrey's at Sam's and Audrey got weak in the knees. Here's Clark doing his favorite thing: throwing. Anyway you look at it though spending time with them is priceless.

Lake wedding

Brigid and Joey's wedding was a lot of fun and God even stopped the rain for the ceremony. We don't want to steal any of Brigid's thunder and will let her show all of her pictures. These are just a little taste of some of our family. Check out Audrey's Matrix like dance move.

Dancy-Dance Friends

Audrey was in heaven as she directed all of Fer-Fer's dancy-dance friends. She taught them such moves as the "Chips and Queso" dance and the "Read the Book" dance. Then of course after the structured dances, she told everyone to just "go crazy." As you can tell, Clark wasn't too interested.

To Each Their Own

Here's an example of how different our children are and how the each fill their gender specific roles. Audrey would like rollers in her hair with her princess nightgown and little man would like a baseball to go to sleep with.
