This is Isabelle’s new phrase lately. Thank you very much Chicken Little. Isabelle uses this phrase as often as possible and even sometimes says it at the right time!! I hope that this phrase doesn’t last forever as I can see myself getting tired of hearing it. The hard part is that she knows we think it’s funny when she says it. And while I try to make sure I don’t laugh, or I pretend that I just didn’t hear her. There are times when I just can’t help myself. I guess it could be worse. She could be dropping the “f” bomb.
Have you all noticed my very nice new header for the blog? Well, I have a Jen to thank for my snazzy new blog header! I have zero talent when it comes to customizing this blog. I am very new to wordpress and managed to figure out how to upload photos for the header, but I just felt like I didn’t have a header that fit. I’ve always enjoyed Jen’s blog headers and asked her how she did them and presto she made me one! Thanks so much Jen, I think it’s fantastic!
Busy week ahead of me. I have a house to whip into shape for family coming this weekend. Add in various apointments for dogs, running out to get last minute items for the party on the weekend and entertaining the children. I really wish that the weather would improve. The kids and I are getting so sick of being indoors. And more importantly, I would like a little more adult interaction in my life. I manage to get a little here and there when I go to the office to work. This past week of work was crazy and so I’ve taken this week off in order to get ready for the party. Auntie M is going to be staying with us, while Grandma and Grandpa D kick will have other accomodations. It’s going to be great to have everyone here. Well almost every one. Uncle C, Auntie M’s hubby can’t make it that weekend. Also my bro, Uncle R can’t attend either. But hopefully we’ll be able to see both of them at other times in the next little while.
Today I put a temporary tattoo on Isabelle. I sat her down and explained to her that the picture on the paper was going to be on her hand after I used water to help it stick to her. She was all excited at the idea of getting to use water to put a picture on her hand. Grandma picked up these pirate tattoos from Disney. I think they are from a movie I’ve never seen before. Anyways, I put it on her hand, applied the damp cloth for 10 seconds and then removed the paper backing. I thought Isabelle would be impressed, wrong. She practically looked at it in horror! I think it really confused her that the picture when from paper on to her hand. She immediately wanted me to take it off her hand, but I convinced her that it was okay by letting her put one on my hand. Well, next thing I knew she was practically covered in them! She thought they were so fun she coudlnt’ stop putting them on! Maddy was even adventurous enough to put on one. Aidan however was not at all interested.
Well I hope that I’m able to get everything ready and the house cleaned in time for the weekend. I’m relaxing tonight watching The Princess and the Frog. I want to see if it’s something Isabelle would like to watch. So far I’m not convinced it will hold her attention. We started watching Bambi tonight. I am pretty sure I’ll be skipping the sad parts of that one. Time to settle in and watch the rest of my flick.
