Guess what we're working on?

We're working on potty training!! This past month we've been at it full force and she's doing well. We still have accidents, but they're getting to be fewer.

We had Minnie Mouse panties but we went to TJ Maxx this week (love that store) and found some Hello Kitty ones plus a book about the Princess who's learning to go potty too. Very cute book!!

I hope very soon I can report that she's "graduated" to big girl panties all the time.

Me Pretty

While I was getting ready, Lily decided to get ready too and put on some of my lipstick. After she did this she went to go show daddy and her brothers and was telling them "me pretty".

Project Life

I am currently doing Project Life. I really like this concept where you take a photo a day and jot down a few sentences about everyday life on that day.

I really like doing this as it will be fun to look back at the end of 2011 and see what our life was like this year.

Project Life is an idea originated by Becky Higgins. I really like her scrapbooking style and her overall style too. Here's her website.

Dancing In the Stars with Lily

This weekend I was clearing off my memory cards in my cameras and came upon this little gem from November.

I like to watch Dancing With the Stars. I think it's fun to see the routines and costumes. It's one show that I will always DVR.

Hayden and Lily enjoy watching it too but instead of calling it Dancing with the Stars they call it Dancing in the Stars. LOL!! They like to dance together and maybe in the future we got a little brother/sister team going on but for now they jump around the living room and kitchen. It's so funny as Hayden tries to dip her and tells her to do this and that, to which I hear "ok Hey-hun".

On this day Hayden was at Pre-K so Lily had to dance alone. What's a girl to do?

First...go get your brother's knit hat and put it on your head.

Second...put on as many silly band bracelets you can find on one wrist.

Third...put on your pink tu-tu while still wearing your froggie jammies. and dance!!

Happy Anniversay

Yesterday was our 11th. wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe that we've been married for 11 years. Time has gone SO quickly.

A lot has taken place over the past 11 years. When we first became a family it was just the three of us and Will was only 3 1/2 years old. We've had two more additions to our family with Hayden arriving in 2005 and Lily in 2008 and we've had two four legged family members arrive too. Fritz arrived in 2002 and Lucy has been with us 3 months. We've got to travel a lot too with trips to Denmark, Canada, Bahamas and several visits to Florida. Plus with the expansion of our family we moved into a larger house in 2009.

I can't wait to see what the years in the future will bring. With us together, we can deal with anything. I hope it's nothing but joy and happiness.

I'm so glad Anders that you "picked me" and for the record, I'd pick you all over again too. I love you so much!! Happy Anniversary honey :-)

Sick Mommy

So far 2011 has brough illness to our household. Doesn't the virus bug know that the mommy isn't allowed to be sick? I guess the virus didn't get the memo so it decided to come and visit for a good 36 hours. What a miserable 36 hours it has been!!

Now let's hope the rest of the year is better in the health category.
