One of the coolest things about watching your kids grow is watching them become little people. Kaitlin adores big sister Hailey and went and picked out an outfit to try and match her one morning. When she saw Hailey had her hair braided, she requested the same instead of her standard pig tails. Kaitlin is blossoming into her own little person and taking notes from big sis along the way. I can only hope they will always be so fond of each other.
Last night Kaitlin came in and delivered a nice little encore at 1 am and then Karlie came into our room puking all the way at 3 am. My carpets look like a tie die project gone bad. Three air fresheners are not doing the trick. Poor Karlie had to miss Pajama Day at school today. :( Hopefully she will perk up soon and then tomorrow she can have her final act with this nasty bug. Still praying the bug holds off its audition in me until Max can be home to help.
Three down and one to go. Right after I picked Karlie up from school Kaitlin unload. Thankfully we had the bucket in hand. If it goes like the prior two I have about 18 hours of fun ahead. I wonder when Karlie will blow?
This is Hank in the middle of his battle. He NEVER sits still much less fall asleep on the floor. Little man was wiped out from this bug.
Here he is at the end of the fight. Still not up for hanging on the chandelier but at least smiling. Today I am happy to report he is back to jumping off the couch and trying to cause as much two year old trouble as possible. Now I just need to nurse little Shuggie back to health, hopefully before Karlie is taken down.
With most things I would say the more the merrier with a bunch of kids. However, when it comes to GI bugs having an only child would be much better. The good old winter GI bug has landed at our house and he is just starting the not so merry go round in the kids.
So this is not a news flash, but I thought I would share my two cents about Avatar. It is truly a cinematic experience everyone should have. I am not a movie buff by any means. In fact Max and I were trying to remember the last time we went to a movie and to the best of our memory (which is very poor) it has been nearly four years. We have never felt it was worth the expense when we can wait and rent it for a buck and watch it after the kids go to bed, so no babysitter fee either.
I don't know if you happened to watch Miss America on Saturday but we did. The older girls and I had a good time talking about who was the prettiest, who had the best dress, walked the best, had the best talent, and most personality. We were rooting for Miss Colorado and Miss Hawaii. During the commercials Hailey and Karlie had an impromptu Pageant. Karlie was Miss Kid Colorado and Hailey was Miss Kid California. The coffee table served as a perfect stage!
Miss Kid Colorado strutting her stuff. Love the pink leopard heels.
Miss Kid California showing us her moves.
Check out the vintage Salvation Army gown on her. Stunning if I do say so.
The flower girl dress is always a classic for evening wear. I love the earthy feeling she brings with her bare feet. A bold move but she pulled it off.
