Dress Up Fun!

Danee is at such a fun age right now!

Her Halloween costume this year is a fairy princess (with wings!) and she LOVES IT.

At least once a day she brings her wings to Mommy so she can help put them on. A week ago, Grandma Ginger gave her another little fairy princess getup, a one piece dress with flowery skirt petals and little wings on the back. At first, Danee wanted NOTHING to do with it... but a couple days ago, that changed, and she put it on - along with her other wings, for a one-two cuteness punch!

First off, she was so happy that she decided to try to eat Mommy's face!

Then a quick pose for Daddy...

And then she started dancing around the living room, swinging her skirt, waving her wings, and cementing her position as "World's Cutest BabyGirl"!

It's funny - all the fears and drama of her early arrival are SUCH distant memories now... Blessed beyond measure!!

Scratch That... New Ideas arent' always the Best Ones!

Puddle Jumpers will remain open and ready for buisness...
After all things considered now is not the right time to make huge life and finacial changes for our family.

Keepin' it Clean will go back on the shelf for another time.

"A Night at The Museum"

The Young Women at church held their annual "Young Women of Excellence" program last week. Each girl entered a piece of art or something that would represent what they had been working to improve all year. It was a great night, and didn't Kaylee look lovely!

Lot's of great pieces from Music to Photography, everything was really nice.

The Food Was Super Yummy Too!

Are Your Children Safe?

For last Friday's CHS Football game, the pep band again had a theme to dress up for. You may recall last time, when the theme was Superheroes, and Ellysa dressed up as the Defender of Childhood Innocence!

Well this time the theme was Decades. Two years ago, Ellysa used this theme as an excuse to go as an '80s hair band rocker chick.

This year, she again chose the '80s as her decade, but skipped the corporate hair band machine, and went right to the angst of the DIY punk!

A couple weeks ago, she was defending childhood innocence. This time around, she's tracking down that innocence, shoving a safety pin through its nostrils, and setting its hair on fire.

And all the while...

...with a smile on her face!

Another Milestone!

Danee is 22 months old now. While her ACTUAL second birthday is still two months away, and her ADJUSTED two-year-old phase won't start until late January, she is 100% in the terrible two's.

When they get to this age, the milestones don't come as fast and furious as they used to, but when she does accomplish exciting new things, I still try to remember to document them here so that we'll have that wonderful record to look back on when she's older...

Last night at dinner, when she decided that she was done, and announced it by way of turning her plate upside down and tossing whatever food was left onto the floor, she got to work accomplishing her new goal...

Oh boy.. the era of Danee's clothes staying on all by themselves is coming to an end, and the era of free range nakey baby is dawning...

I'll go alert the neighbors!
