Everyday she asks her daddy if he is going to shave today. Today the answer was yes! Boy was she excited. She loves when he puts the shaving cream on her face.


Samantha was scared to death of this cute little pig. It has a button on top and when you push it it snorts its nose and moves back and forth. It is the cutest thing but as soon as she accidentally pushed that button it was all over. She crawled far away from it. Almost burst into tears.


Green Eggs and Ham! Yes Alexys' class celebrated Dr Seuss day today! They had the chance to tastes the green eggs and ham. Some kids didn't want to eat them at all. Alexys tried them and to her surprise they tasted just like regular eggs. They had several table filled with special Dr. Seuss activites. I love that I get to volunteer and help at her school for all these special events.

Today Alexys' had a special day at school. The class filled up their marble jar for good behavior and got to dress up in their costumes and wear them to school. Today was also her share day. Every week they have a letter that they learn and get to bring something that starts with that special letter. This week the letter was "I". She shared her iguana. We didn't bring the actual iguana but I did take a picture of her holding it and printed it out for her to share. She was so excited.

After a couple days of rain the kids had a blast digging for worms. Their pets as they would say.

Today I watched two of my sister's kids while she was out doing some errands. Kaden had the best time playing with Samantha. He pushed her all around in Alexys' baby stroller. She didn't mind at all.

Alexys is such an awesome big sister. She adores Samantha. I hope it is always this way!

Today was a busy day. Jeff and I pulled a ton of weeds in our backyard. I didn't realize how sore your fingers can get from that.
Later this afternoon we went to our friends The Johnson's to watch the superbowl. So sad the Cardinals didn't win. It was a very good game though. I do wish that they had a better half time show.
