My Little Belly Dancer

Strike A Pose

Mister Brown showin' off for the camera

"Hey Mom, take a pitcha of me!" I know you have seen my kiddos in this exact pose a million times. Just about as soon as I take out the camera, Anna runs and over and starts hugging her "brudder."

3 Years Old

3 years old is so much fun!

I am just loving this age.

They really do say the cutest things.

Whenever Brown is told that the answer is NO he replies, "But I'm a weal (real) boy!!!"

This morning while batting her eyelashes Anna announced, "Mommy, when I grow up I want to marry my Daddy!"

When we are out running errands Anna frequently asks the cashier, "Are you a boy or a girl?"

Trying to get an answer from Brown is still very difficult, for example:

Me: Brown, why did you bite your sister?

Brown: I bite Eenah (Anna) because I bite Eenah.

Me: Brown, why are you crying?

Brown: I cwying because I cwying.

Anna always tells the truth, for example:

Me: Anna, why did you color on the wall?

Anna: I wanted to make it pretty.

Me: Anna, why did you push your brother?

Anna: Because he was in duh way.

At bedtime Anna always tells us to, "Cover me bigger!"

Every morning Brown asks, "What we doin' today? We goin' to Tahgit (Target)?"...his favorite store. Mine too!! ;)

I ran into the edge of the coffee table the other day and Brown said, "Hold on Mom, let me go get somping." He then ran into the other room and came back with his doctor's kit.

Brown frequently says, "Hmmm, let me tink about it," while pressing his index finger on the tip of his chin.

Almost every morning Anna asks, "Can we go get in the car today and drive and drive and drive and drive to go see Gaga in Waco?"...that girl loves her grandmother!

Whenever Anna gets scolded she begs, "I sorry, will follow rections (directions) now! I will be a good girl."
At H-E-B today Anna told the checker boy with long hair, "You need a haircut."...she was right, he did.

And our dog is not named Woody, it is Woody Dog.

Today marks the end of the school year for us.

I was looking at pictures from the 1st day of school, and GOSH how they have grown!

Before I know it , they will be starting elementary school...

Life just goes by so quickly.

Hopscotch, one of my favorite memories on the school playground...

Wednesday, May 18, 2011


Adores pirates, dump trucks, Thomas the Train, and his American Girl baby doll.
Wants to wear his "rocks" (crocs) every where. Even to bed.

Is particular about what he wears now. When he doesn't like something that I've picked he says, "Mama, that NOT look wight!"

Is super attached to his "lankie" (blanket).

Is fighting nap time.

Wants to eat "doose" (juice) and "goldfith" (goldfish) every morning for breakfast.

Only wants "macawoni" for dinner...doesn't always get it though.

Sings himself to sleep at night.

Is really into fairy tales. His favorite one is Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Can recite the entire Pledge of Allegiance. And salutes the flag while he does it.

LOVES to be outside.

Is such a "Mama's boy" right now...Secretly, I LOVE IT!! ;)

Right Now...

She constantly demands, "Stop talking, and clap for me!" as she twirls around the room.

Sweetly turns to me and says, "Mom, I love you." several times a day.

While at the park playing last week, she came running over to me and exclaimed, "It's such a hard time playing!"...i know, what a hard life!

Refers to anything that has happened in the the past as, "Last morning."

Frequently says, "I am soooo fwus-ter-ated!"...oops, i wonder where she got that one?!?

Loves to dance
and twirl

and makes me watch "her show" at least 5 times a day.

Play dress up every.single. day.

Changes outfits, including socks, shoes, bows, and panties several times a day.

Has to wear lipstick (chapstick) to school.

Stays up til about 11:00 each night playing in her room before finally falling asleep.

Last week I found her locked inside her closet, naked, rearranging her shoes by color.
