Day to Day Life

I have a lot of pictures that I take and then never post. I thought I would share a few to give you a glimpse of our day to day life. It is very fun and entertaining....most days!
Andie and I bought a kite yesterday at Walmart - best $1 purchase of the year! It is blurry, but has Mickey, Minnie and Goofy flying in a hot air balloon.
Shawn took a break from homework and came out to play with us. Andie was cute, she kept saying, "Oh no Mickey, be safe!"
As some of you know, our Stake is REALLY big on emergency preparedness. Last Sunday we had combined Priesthood and Relief Society on such. So, I have decided that each month I will contribute a small item to our list of things needed. This month was personal hygiene kits.
Andie enjoys taking off her clothes - I think because she can. So, I pulled out this fun dress-up costume that was given to us to try to keep her somewhat covered. She enjoyed it for about 30 minutes and since has had nothing to do with it.

Here is Ali eating, more or less.

Andie has gone on the "poo-potty" (don't ask me where she got that from) once a day for the last week. She watches herself, totally in control and I always tell her to go more!! She does and then I say, "Go Lots!" Then she does, says "Good Job Andie", wipes herself, washes her hands and is done. We will slowly get her to going all the time, but for now she is doing great and totally initiated her potty training. We did by her underwear, but she only likes to play with them.
I got some good grocery deals when the Food Lion went out of buisness. I think I got nearly 150 items, average was .75 per item. Not too bad!
Andie LOVES to play with Mary, when there are not older kids around. They have so much fun together....Mary, you should come and play again sometime soon!
Ali just sitting and playing - usually what she does all day long! She loves to play!
Ever since our trip to Orlando, Andie only wants "Snacks!" I called my mom and thanked her for this one day and she suggested that we get creative with our lunch and cut different shapes for our "snacks". Andie loves to have circles, triangles, squares and rectangles. Rectangles are her favorite - it's easy to cut a sandwich down the middle and Whala - rectangles! haha

Finally our little Ali girl is starting to walk. If you hold her hand or she has something heavy in the stroller to push. She is such a funny character!

You have such cute girls!! I wish you lived closer so Brynlee could play with them. Good luck with the potty training!

Thanks for the catch up! It is fun to see what you and the girls are doing on a day to day basis. We miss you all a ton! Andie and Ali are getting so big. Congrats and good luck with the potty training, it is an exciting time... we are finally to a point where we aren't having any accidents - for the last 2 months or so... but it took us a while to get there. I love not having to deal with her potty time, she says "I have to go potty" then adds in "by myself - I'm a big girl", she goes in, goes, washes up and is done... I LOVE IT! Sounds like things are going smooth for you, keep up the good work Andie!
