Happy Birthday Grandpa John!
P.S. We're emailing this one.
Your Little Pink Princess Abigail
|Crabs at Walmart|
|Abigail loving the nail buffer|
|I made Alexander another birthday cake,|
because I didn't think some of our guests
would like boston cream pie.
|Andrew discussing pizza rows and columns and applying|
them to computer programming.
|Just when you think the fridge can't get any crazier...|
I call this fridge tetris: how many bananas (that I'm trying to save for smoothies), can you spot?
|I love jobs that keep the littlest ones buys, but that they can also provide real help with the housework.|
|Abigail folding our handkerchiefs|
|The last day we all went to the south park and let the kids do fun things.|
|On the last day we also packed up some things to send back to the states with the grandparents.|
Andrew made the stuffed animals plane tickets.
|Morning after the grandparents left very early.|
Look what the grandparents left you guys, Abigail!
"The grandparents left me the stickiness!"
|We took the rest of the week off to rest and recover from all of our fun.|
Here are the two older boys on their break,
researching to make the best LOTR game ever.
|Abigail was the most eager to get back to school and wanted more school jobs.|
She started handwriting, turning all the words pink of course.
|Then when she did a good job, she added pink snowmen stickers|
|Abigail helping me clean house after the birthday and guests|
|She also really loves this new dress|
|Wearing my new silver shoes around the house.|
Abigail gets hers to match and then says,
"We're so beautiful! These are dancing shoes!"
And starts twirling
|New hairstyle for Abigail.|
She likes to watch hairstyle how to videos
|"On my birthday I am going to be four!"|
But don't skip age 3; it's a good age!
"I think when Aaron was little, he skipped an age."
|I realized after ordering more super dish wash cloths that reduce or|
eliminate the need for dish soap, just how many things we have are made from bamboo.
Living here has really made me learn to love bamboo.
|Later in the day after we talked to friends who were eating candy corn on the video,|
Abigail sees the flaxseed and says,
"That's like candy corn! I love it!"
My kids aren't hurting for junk food. (See above stickiness!)
But this might tie for funniness with the time when
little Aaron thought seaweed sheets were called Tootsie rolls.
|Alexander got clay and need play dough tools for his birthday and now|
everyone wanted to play play dough again.
|Alexander's dino world he made with his present|
|Some friends gave up round(!) pumpkins and others gave us a lot of apples|
|Kids are enjoying the fall food|
|Abigail drew a picture of her future wedding.|
She is in the pink and white.
Roast beef, red carrots, and purple swirled potatoes
|And canned corn!|
Thank you for everything.
Especially, everything pink.
