Favorites of my 6 year old

A sweet friend gave me this great idea (thanks S!!) to do with the kids around their birthdays.
I think it is a fabulous way to see how they change from year to year.
I'm a little belated since H's birthday was in August, but that seems to be the story of my life right now.  So consider this your notice that our Halloween pictures will likely be posted in December and Christmas fun in March :)

So here it goes....
Imagine H and I sitting at my kitchen table, serious reporter style, with my Q&A!

What is your favorite color:  blue

Favorite animal:  zebra

Favorite food: cookies (all kinds, but Eileen's are yummy!)

Favorite thing to do at school:  color

Favorite activity:  Coloring with mom

BFF:  Shelby (this was the first time I've ever heard this name!  Guess she is in her class.....just never happens to mention her :)

What do you think of your sister E right now:  She's kind of mean  (this made me laugh!  These girls fight like cats right now!)

Who cooks the best: mean I meant mom...actually mom and dad both cook the best  (sweet...she didn't want to hurt my feelings!)

Favorite TV show:  iCarly

Favorite breakfast food:  cereal

Funnest thing we've done so far this year:  Trip to San Francisco on the airplane

Favorite pet:  a hamster and a puppy (sorry Charlie and Jeter :( )

Favorite day:  I have two mom....Saturday and Sunday because we don't have school

Favorite people in the world:  mom, dad, doctor (Random!), emma, jeter, charlie, edward, chloe, riley and kendall

Favorite place to visit: swimming pool and papa's lake

I can't wait to look back at these from year to year. 
Her personality just shines through these answers.

H ~ as we always tell you....regardless of what your favorites are, YOU are our FAVORITE youngest daughter.  We love you!!

My Heart Runneth Over Wednesdays...

My heart runneth over with....sadness and pride.

Last month, our girls started another school year.
We now officially have a 1st and 2nd grader.


It certainly doesn't even seem possible.
Where did another year go? 
How is it possible for a summer to go so fast?
How can our little girls be so grown up already?
We have come a long, long way since 2:10pm on 10/18/04 and 7:48am on 8/11/06.
How can it all be such a blur?
Look at how beautiful they are:
We are so proud of you both!
E, you are bursting with personality, confident, brilliant, nurturing and beautiful.
H, you are so innocent, carefree, gentle, intelligent, thoughtful and stunning.
We love you more than the world!
Have a stellar year!  We are bursting with excitement and anticipation of what the year will hold!
You both ROCK!

Eeewwww! Memories........

Last week I went out to start the grill and almost touched this!!!!

Melissa and Katie.....I needed you. 
I needed you and your styrofoam box and beet salad! 
(I still don't know WHO actually orders a beet salad! ha ha!)

I, on the other hand, don't give a crap about the educational value of this dear mantis and swept it OFF my grill as fast as I could!
OK...actually, I'm lying.....I made Ed sweep it off the grill :)

It's amazing what memories a preying mantis brings!
Love you ladies!
