(Not So) Wordless Wednesday!

Well here is a very rough draft of our Gotcha Day! We will have better quality to come but here is just a rough copy to show you! I thought you all might enjoy! It messed up when uploading to Youtube* for example you hear the talking and you should just here music. But I still think you will enjoy it. Please leave comments and tell me what you think!

No School!

Today we have no school!! YAY! We have had a wonderful weekend. It started on Friday night with Adam's birthday party! We had it at a jumping place and everyone had tons of fun!! Princess Anna Grace wasn't too sure about the blow-ups but she LOVED running around like a crazy person with her 4-6yr. old friends! Gracie, Kamden and Katie were all at her side at the party! They were SO cute! Adam had a ball with all his friends and Hayne played around too! Max and I played minature golf for halfthe party and stayed at that one last hole and kept getting balls to try and get the bullseye! We got a little carried away! lol Then on saturday we just stayed home and RELAXED! Went to church on Sunday and now I have gotten you caught up to Monday :) We have no school thanks to Martin Luther King Jr!!! So today I am really not sure what we will be doing. Maybe Target, Chuck E. Cheese, the mall (MAYBE) I am really not sure! Then tomorrow the very awaited day comes..... WE GO BACK TO SCHOOL ;)! :( Next weekend we are going snow tubing with my sunday school class. That should be fun. I have never been before so wish me luck! lol
Here are some conversations I recently had with PAG!

PAG: Sissy sing Ariel
Me- "Look at this stuff isn't it neat....."
PAG- NO I wanna be I wanna be!!!
Me- "I wanna be where the people are........."
PAG- thank choo sissy!
Me- Your Welcome Anna
PAG- you needa give me a bath and dress me!
Me- OK but we are going to have to wash your hair!
PAG- Otayy well nevermind
Me- come on let's go wash your hair
PAG- I said nevermind i no want you to wash my hair
Me- Well we have to and then we can listen to Cinderella
PAG- If i must :)

That is the only recent one I have had with her but my mom has PLENTY with her :) I will get her to share some of those.

We have had Anna Grace for almost 19th months! Is that not AMAZING?!?!!!? We finally figured out how to get the Gotcha Day videos on my Mom's computer! (we are technically retarded at some things :] ) I will try to get some video together! Hints on the TRY!

FFF#4

WOW it has been awhile since I have done an FFF! So here one is! I know I have posted this pix before but I love it! Even Princess is smiling!
Sorry I haven't updated in almost a week! I have been running around like a crazy person! haha- Here is an update!
Well Princess is doing GREAT and is keeping us busy! She is getting bigger and is even starting potty training! She went pee-pee on the potty on Sunday and we were so proud! Thank you Bobbi for the stickers! She LOVED putting "Cinnarella" on the potty! For those of you who don't understand what I mean, Everytime Princess uses the potty she gets to put a sticker on the 'Big Girl' potty! She is in LOVE with doing this and it really does encourage her to use the potty! It was a great idea! Thanks Bobbi! We started back to school on Monday and are slowly getting back into schedule! Not so much looking forward to Monday b/c of getting up! haha We have over all had a very good week! Tomorrow we are going to a Swim Team Cookout! That should be fun! Princess also went back to school :/ She LOVES it! I am glad but sad :( Have a GREAT weekend!!!!

Princess kept her dress on the ENTIRE time and LOVVEED Cinderella! It was so much fun to watch Maddie, Lillie, and Anna Grace play! This is how the party went..... Cinderella and her special friend arrived at 9:45 and set up all the dresses and shoes and all the princess stuff! at 10:00 the fun began! We had a fashion show with all the little girls and took pictures. We then had a tea party/cake and storytime! It was so much fun! Then the Princess' played games like 'Where will you kiss the frog' and Boa Limbo! It was so much fun and it was a truly magical party!!! Here are the pictures!!! Sorry there aren't to many :) I just thought these were the cutest :)
