Dad 'n' Anne

She really likes that Mr. Potato Head hand!

The French Braid

When Lynds and I were growing up, after we got our baths Mom would sit down and wet-French braid our hair. In the morning we'd have beautiful hair for school, and then the next morning we'd take the French braid out and be left with gorgeous curls. I haven't had anyone to practice on, so I really have no idea how to do it! Any volunteers? :)

Mom did this so fast (and made it look so easy!) that Anne wasn't fussy at all.

What a beautiful braid!

Thirsty Girl

Anne kept stealing Grandma's water bottles.

What are they so excited about?

Brad wonders, too.

Tickle time!

Grandma came to visit us last week, and the kids were so excited to see her.

By the end of the week, Anne did not want me to pick her up any more--she only wanted Grandma! We are going to have a blast at Disney--I can tell already!

Pretty Girl

This is one of my favorite dresses!

I love the blue and green combination, and the delicate blue ribbon that ties at her back.

By the way, Uncle Ben, Anne wears that dress about five times a week. Every time she sees it she wants to put it on--if I put something else on her she takes it off and brings me the dress!

This is what the boys were doing--bodysurfing down the couch with their "swords". I say "swords" because Brad's was actually Anne's wand!

A Good Mommy

Anne LOVES her dolls.

We had a playdate this week and she sat and rocked, hugged, kissed, and fed her baby doll while the boys were playing.

Such a good little mommy!

That's MR. Engineer to you!

That's the box o' stuff I'm selling on Craigslist/eBay.

I thought she'd rip the the hat off, but she loved it and insisted on wearing it to church!

This is what dinner looks like on nights Daddy works late.

New Skillet

Mom and Dad gave us Amazon gift cards for Christmas, and we finally used them. I got this cast iron skillet for $19.99 with free shipping. It got incredible reviews, and I tell ya, I would have paid more than that for this baby. It weighs a ton, and Miss Anne is trying to lift it off the floor!
