Pink Magic

I took the girls to Meijer today and we spent over an hour in the toy aisle getting ideas for Christmas.  Mariah was so good and she understood that we were "just looking" and we weren't going to buy anything.  Ambria's eyes were as big as saucers as we went up and down the aisles and when we got to the dolls, all she kept saying over and over was "baby, baby."  (I think I know what she will get this Christmas).  When we got to the "girly" aisle and there was PINK everywhere, Mariah's eyes lit up and she said "whoa, mom, this is sooo magical!"  Yup, that is my little girly girl.

(On a sad note, for those of you that don't know, Meijer took out ALL of the mechanical ponies from their stores.  What that means to parents with little kids---no more bribes for good little shoppers.  Huge bummer).

Sleeping has been a pretty fun hobby of mine lately.

It is pretty exciting, you should try it.

900 Stickers

We got a gift bag and among the goodies inside were 900 Halloween stickers.  Somehow, I keep finding these stickers plastered all over the house and I'm sure I will keep finding them well after Halloween is over.

I looked on Ambria's back and she had a sticker that said "Bad to the Bone."  Too funny.

The girls are loving the fun "let's put stickers all over everything" activity.  Whatever it takes to keep them occupied...  (It they are happy, I am happy).

Scary Movies = Crazy Dreams

So, what happens when a bunch of guys watch "The Ring" before going to bed?...  (I politely excused myself from this activity)

I was awaken in the middle of the night by Jerry kicking and huffing and puffing and snorting like crazy.  I asked him in the morning what the heck was he dreaming about, and he started laughing and said that he was chasing someone.  I couldn't stop laughing.

I don't watch scary movies.  Jerry is solo on this one.

Little Bumps

Ambria loves giving "fist bumps" these days.  She will walk around the whole room giving everyone in the room a "fist bump" and then she will walk around the room and do it all over again.  It is pretty cute.  She will just walk up to anyone and hold out her fist and if they don't know what she is doing and they "deny" her, she just sadly walks away and finds a new person.

Just imagine this little tiny fist giving you a "fist bump."  It makes everyone smile.  Kids have a way of doing that.

Mom Shouldn't Laugh

The other night, Mariah was getting ready for bed and we were in the bathroom, brushing teeth, washing up, etc. The last thing Mariah does before bed is go potty. So, this night was not unlike any other...

Mariah was done on the potty, but somehow she FELL OVER off the seat and hit her head straight on the tile floor!!

I couldn't help but laugh hysterically. How the heck could THAT happen?

Mariah didn't think it was too funny as she screamed her head off.

So, she got a minor black eye, bumps, and bruises. I guess sometimes that porcelain seat can get the best of us.

I'm still laughing about it.
