This morning the girls opened a new tube of toothpaste.  This particular had My Little Pony characters on it.  So the the girls are brushing their teeth when we have this conversation:

CJ: Mmm!  It's yummy!
V: Mmm!  Tastes like pony!

Hope you too get to enjoy some pony flavored toothpaste one day! :)

V & Papa Ben


I think this is how I will always remember Papa Ben.  He is never without a giant smile and a loud laugh.  So glad they popped in for a bit so we could see them last week.

Bye Bye Shoes

Do your kids have a favorite pair of shoes?  Ones that they wear  e v e r y  s i n g l e  d a y?  To church, to the park, to a friend's house ... our sparkly white shoes have been faithful all summer.  But now they are starting to look a little tired and worn.


So it was time to retire them.  I thought about just taking them out of the basket and not even saying anything to the girls about it.  But then I realized that as soon as CJ found out her favorite pair of shoes had been stolen away from her, she would be devastated.  Best course of action - having a goodbye ceremony.  Did I ever think I would have a goodbye ceremony for a pair of shoes?  Nope.  Funny where life takes you.

Charissa put her shoes on and did a last dance.  Verity decided she'd rather put the shoes on Buddy.  Sweet little girl in her Mr. T shirt. :)

After our goodbyes were said the girls put their shoes inside a box and that was the end.  
Have I told them that the shoes are going in the trash?  No.  But I didn't make up some line about sending them to someone else or saving them either.  Poor stinky shoes.  They had a good run.  :)

They make me smile

When they play princesses and ponies ...

... when they sit around with sunglasses on ....

... when they cuddle their dolls and tuck them in to bed ...

 ... in the oven. :)

So glad my job involves so much silliness!!
