Little Piggies

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

3 years and we now have enough hair to barely do this. I love it so much I can't even tell you! I smile every time I see it and she is growing up like crazy before my eyes! Everyday I ask her if I can put piggies in her hair and she says YES! The first day she kept saying "I want to show my piggies to Grandma Linda!" I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! They're teeny piggies and I have to use the smallest elastics but they're still adorable.

I remember when I was excited to even see the little hairs. :)

Instagram Roundup

Sunday, January 29, 2012

I got an iPhone for Christmas. Mostly for the Instagram app. :) I'm obsessed. It's no secret to anyone who knows my husband that he hates Apple. And it took a little time to get him to come around to the idea and get him to stop slamming my new phone (not really slamming - I'll be so mad if it ever breaks!). But I love it and am Instagraming (new word) the heck outta my days!
So here goes the instagram & P-family life update. :)

Grandma got Darbi to "take a snooze" with her "Big Bear" and that lasted for a week. She would not let me move him.

Couldn't find my running pants so I went out in capris one night.. in 30 degree weather. I won't be doing that again. Pants have since been found.

This may someday require a long story/post of its own but that will all come in due time. A few weeks ago, I had to have an ultrasound on my Carotid Artery. My doctor thought he heard a bruit (pronounced bru-ey) in my artery and because of my high blood pressure, the presence of that little bugger could be the cause of my HBP. BUT, they found nothing. So I'm still on my meds.

Darbi helping me assemble Week 1 of my Project Life kit (3rd year in a row!). Love this project.

Pre-glittering hearts for kits at work! They looks so pretty and I'm so in the mood to glitter up my house with pretty things & hearts!

First Sunday of the new year we made it to church on time! Soft seats actually help Darbi behave better during Sacrament meeting!

I've been finding little scenes set up around the house lately and I. LOVE. IT.

Conversation between "Tinkerbell" and I
Me: Tinkerbell, fly over to me!
Tink: (in the saddest voice ever) I don't know how to fly. :(

I lost my last pair of contacts and was stuck in glasses for a whole week while I waited for Costco to get my 'scrip in. I loved it but felt so scatterbrained because I couldn't see as well. It's especially flustering when you have a 3 year old running away from you all the time! But contacts are in and I'm back to normal!

Lastly, I got a haircut! Just a little shorter than normal but I'm loving the length. Since I skipped my color this time, I'm in dire need of a little coverage. Folks... I have SO. MUCH. GRAY. Blame who you will. :) (cough cough MOM)

Happy Birthday baby girl

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Baby girl had a birthday this month! And I've decided that I officially do not have a baby anymore because she loves to eat cereal.. out of a bowl... with a spoon... and milk. Like a grown up. We were in Arizona for her birthday and though we'd keep it simple. It was a purple & gold party with Rapunzel gifts. We decorated during her afternoon nap since church was at 9. You can't expect me to get up early... even if it is my kid's birthday. :)

So I put together a little list of questions to ask her and hopefully will do this every year. The questions will probably change every year so we'll think of it as a little interview. :) She didn't answer every question I asked so I'll only include the once she did.

1. How old are you? Three (an obvious one :)
2. Favorite food? Cereal
3. Favorite color? Pink
4. Favorite song? Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
5. Favorite book? Fairy tales
6. Favorite outfit? My kitty jammies
7. Favorite treat? Goldfish
8. Favorite fruit? Strawberries
9. Favorite drink? Juice
10. Favorite breakfast? Pretzels - I love pretzels!
11. Favorite tv show? Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
12. Favorite activity? Angry Birds
13. Favorite game? To play with the ball
14. Favorite toy? My treehouse (her Littlest Pet Shop Treehouse)
15. Favorite animal? A pig
16. Where do you like to go? See Daddy
17. What do you dream about? Minnie Mouse
18. If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Go see the princesses
19. Who is your best friend? GiGi (my mom :)
20. What do you like to do with Mommy & Daddy? Snuggle (definitely my favorite answer!)
21. Favorite thing to do outside? I love play in the snow
22. What makes you sad? My bed (the bane right now... we are all so tired. Bedtime is ridiculous)
I did ask her what makes her happy.. but she was too busy playing Angry Birds. :) I think we know what makes her happy.
23. What do you take to bed with you? 2 blankies & Jake in my bed (Jake is her little pink bear)
24. What do you want for dinner on your birthday? Lunch & Spaghettios
25. What was the favorite part of your birthday? My crown

Boy we've come a long way in 3 years. :)

A Pink Headache.

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

We're just getting to the age where she says funny things that I can blog. I think I'm back. :)

Audrey: Oy! I have a headache!

Darbi: You have a headache? I wanna see it!

Audrey: No because it's in my head.

Darbi: ::gasp:: I see it! It's right there!

Audrey: What color is it?? (I don't know why I asked this.. When I talk to her, sometimes I think in terms of what a 3 year old thinks of; shapes, numbers, & colors)

Darbi: PINK! It's a pink headache!
