ABC song

Today I watched my friend's kids Bella (4) and Jack (2). Molly and Bella were trying to figure out how the ABC song goes...
Molly: "a b c d e f g s o s o s o p."
Bella: "no, it's a b c d e f g l m n o p."
Molly: (annunciating very carefully) "i think it is a b c d e f g h i j k mento mento p!"
Bella: "wait, i figured it out, it is a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y and z!!"

I am glad one of them finally got it right, but I thought mento sounded like a pretty good letter!!

Abby turns 7

For Abby's birthday we invited friends over and played and opened presents and had pizza and cake and ice cream. It was alot of fun, but that many 7 year old girls in my house at one time was quite loud!! Here is a picture of Thomas giving Abby his gift.
Here is Molly giving her gift to Abby. She picked some Barbie princess clothes and shoes (since they get lost so easily!).

Here are the gifts we got Abby. She has been asking for a pillow pet for a while now. You should have heard all the girls in the room in unison when she opened it "*gasp* a pillow pet!!!". I guess it was the most popular gift she got that day!!

Here is Abby with her friend Jessilynn.

Here is Abby with her friend Grace.

And Megan

And Emmaline.

And Isabelle.

And Sam. Her gift was a cute bank made out of a glass block and they put her name on the front in vinyl letters and a pretty princess crown on the back. Very pretty!!

Here is Abby's cake. I had so much to do that morning that I ended up buying her a cake from the pre-made Wal-Mart bakery case. It was pretty good and she loved that she got a store-bought cake!!

Happy 7th Birthday to my big girl!! We love you so much!!

"Winter" Parties at school

At our school they have "winter" parties because "Christmas" does not include everyone. So I volunteered to help out with their winter parties and caught a few pictures. Here is Abby with her teacher Mrs. Keith. Abby says she wants to be just like Mrs. Keith when she grows up! Abby with some of her friends in her class this year. From left to right we have Paris, Emmaline, Jessilynn, Grace, Haven, Abby, and Camvy. In the front row is Andrew, Grace's little brother.

Here is Thomas with his teacher, Mrs. Bawden. She is very nice and we like her alot!

And here is Thomas with some of his friends from his class. From left to right we have Michael, Jalen, Roman, Anthony, Thomas, Kevin, and Dylan.
They get to come to school in their jammies and play games and eat junk. It is a really fun day!

Thomas turns 9

Back in December we celebrated Thomas' ninth birthday by inviting a few of his friends to go bowling with us. They all had a great time and then we came back to our house for cake and presents. Here is a picture of Thomas with his friends Kevin, Roman, and Isaac.
Thomas looking pretty happy with his bowl.
The girls hugging in anticipation of their score!

Thomas' cake. I tried to make a 9 out of 9 candles. It kind of worked. At least it tasted yummy!

Happy Birthday to my big 9 year old boy!! We love you very much!!
