Time for another school year.
Big Sis Addy patiently waited her turn.. until yesterday.
We made it with minimal crying on my part.. I was a brave girl! Addy did fantastic informing me that “It was better than Alabama Football.”
When I asked about her day she said, “I was very good. I kicked Emily in the chin and I said I was sorry.” Umm… alright then.
Claire wants new friends because hers, “Talk too much.” Distracting, that socializing.
Every once in a while, I will get a crafty surge and I have to succumb to it. Yesterday’s was Christmas pillows. SaSa came over and I was setting up Christmas decorations and telling her how I thought I might make some Christmas pillows to match the tree skirt and she spotted my table runner and matching cloth napkins I had yet to put in their home. She told me to make that into a pillow.. I had two- I could make a pillow! I told her that if I used a different fabric for the back that I could make two! I also had the perfect cream to match the stripe. When I went to my fabric tote, I found a bunch of fabric that I could use in my pillow making. I decided to try to do and put together what I could so I could wait on going to Hobby Lobby just in case there was something else I ran across needing.
So, hopefully, that will help you out in your shopping delemmas. I am not that hard to shop for.. just ask what I want!
Lately, I am starting to get a glimpse of what the next 15 years are going to be like with Addison. She is all attitude! She is really into knowing what the names of songs are and who sings them. She has been cracking me up with some of her quotes lately and I feel I should share with you.
I was vacuuming the other day and she said, “Mama, you’re being too loud, I can’t check my e-mail.”
She told John the other day, “That’s not the truth!”
Yesterday morning, we were having another drama filled morning and I told her that she needed to stop arguing and talking back to me and she replied, “…but… it’s sooo hard to not to.”
Tonight she exclaimed, “We did it, dawg!”
I will leave with a somewhat long video of her singing some of her favorite songs, which include, “Hey, Soul Sister”, “Party in the USA”, “Sweet Escape”, and “Fifteen”.
If you don’t like cute kids singing and talking, then you won’t like this.
First, I cut all of my ribbon in 4-4.5 inch strips. ( Side note: It took about 4 15 ft spools of ribbon for one topiary.)
Not really sure how you can go from saying the “Pledge of Allegiance” to talking about scary dragons, but Addison seems to know how. I tried to translate as much as I could, but the cutest thing is the fact she says, “I pledge allegiance to THAT flag”. And the scare-scare dragon part is because of Sleeping Beauty, where Prince Phillip kills Maleficent with the sword. She is obsessed with dragons now. I found her “Little People” dragon in my linen closet the other day. It’s so cute. I swear, I just could eat her up with a spoon.
Other Random Thoughts by Addison Marie:
- She wants a Strawberry Cupcake party. I’m not sure if she is related to Strawberry Shortcake, but that is what she is getting.
-She has started telling me she loves me to the moon.
-She informed me tonight that I am her favorite person to play with at school.
-She loves for me to sing “twinkle twinkle little lump, go to sleep don’t be a grump.”
-She calls Claire “Sweet Pea”.
I swear, if Claire is half as cute as Addison is, then we have it made.
I tried to do multiple videos on here, but my blog didn’t want to cooperate. The girls just started taking a bath together this week and they both seem to enjoy it. There is lots of screaming and crying on both of their parts when they have to get out. Claire pretty much only laughs if she is in the water for some reason. Addison is doing great with the sharing. I cannot believe she offered Ariel to Claire to play with. She also tells her to crawl to me. She is so good with her!
