Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

December 3, 2010

Fab 5 Friday

What a fabulous week we’ve had!

1) The girls have added a couple of new phrases to their repertoire. Hearing them say, “Uh oh, feddigo [spaghettio]!” and “See lader, aldigador!” make me smile every time.

2) After we got home from our Thanksgiving tour, the girls kept asking about Granddaddy. I told them that Granddaddy went bye-bye…and then I explained that he lives in Alabama, and we live in Kentucky. Ask the girls where Granddaddy lives, and they say, “Aldibama.” “Where do we live?” “Tucky,” they respond. They can even say the name of our city (in baby-speak, of course).

3) In addition to our craft project on Tuesday, twice this week I gave them yogurt after supper – a huge treat! – and let them practice using spoons. The mess was actually minimal (hallelujah!), and I think they felt like such big girls.

4) I caught Baby B trying to diaper her baby doll. She had the doll on the couch, legs up in the air, using a washcloth-type teether for a “diaper”. She said, “Clean diaper…good!” and I had to laugh.

5) The girls got to see their first snowfall of the season on Thursday. As we left the grocery store, it was snowing hard, in big, white, powdery flakes. They were in awe, giggling like a couple of [pre]school girls…and so was I.

These baby girls never cease to amaze me.

Mackenzie says "uh-oh, skeee-oo". I love it! I am wondering what my girls will think about snow this year...if we get any!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!!

Too cute! Love the diaper!

Today I said to Kendra, did you make a poo? She crinkles up her nose and says "poo" and gives me a big smile.

You have to get #1 on video!!! Love it!

I am amazed that you have snow down south before we had any up here!! All I have to look forward too is people going nuts over the slight possibilities of flurries this weekend. I keep trying to capture those little moments on video but the girls have fallen in love with every tech gadget in this house and insist on playing instead of performing.

I'd love another white Christmas! The only one I had was when I was 18 and living in Germany. Not too much of the white stuff around these parts at this time of year :) A great week!

My guys love to yell, "See ya later, Alligator!" and "In a while, Crocodile!" whenever we say good-bye to someone. I know it's coming, but it sill makes me smile whenever they do it.

I can't believe you got snow in Kentucky, and we've had none in Massachusetts. I'm not really looking forward to a long, snowy winter, but the kids are really wanting snow. They've already talked me into letting them wear their snow coats and boots when neither were actually necessary. I just hope we can have a white Christmas.

Glad to hear you had another great week!

I can't believe y'all have already had snow! So fun! I wonder what Lboy will think of it!

Lboy says, "Uh-oh" and "Oh gooosh!" all the time. It's hysterical!
