Sunday Morning Breakfast

These days we normally have oatmeal for breakfast. And by we I mean the kiddos. I can't seem to get myself to eat it. I get sick to my stomach and I have childhood nightmares of the stuff. I normally eat fruit, eggs (ok so much not lately) or a salad.When Talmage is here we normally easy something different on Saturday but I can't seem to wrap my mind around what to make to break it up. So oatmeal it is. Always and forever. Or at least for now.


Looks like an ordinary moment around her. Or is it? If you look closely you'll see Hannah frosting my birthday brownies in cupcake form.
I flew to Alabama and spent my birthday with Talmage. It was great!

Spotlight Hannah

Hannah is often tries to pin her stuff on  Olive-- "Well Olive..." is a common response I get even if Olive clearly didn't do it because she's asleep or something. She likes to sneak frozen strawberries from the freezer and tries to pin it on Olive.
Hannah adores Dewey. She'll just sit with him, hold his hand and get a good doting session on saying things like "your just such a cutie pie, cute, cute, cute, oh I just love you, cute, cute, cutie, cutie pie." Dewey is so willing to give her a big gummy smile accompanied by a little dance and a "huu".
When she doesn't get her way and she is having a hard day, she'll very teenagerly spot out "I hate you. You never let us do ___." Her turrets doesn't stop there, she often turns on Heber or Olive if they do something wrong. Then the next moment she is back to her sweet happy self. Don't worry though, my next post won't be "How to be a Doormat Parents and Let Your Kids Walk All Over You."
Olive and her are starting a ballet class next week through the city of Plano's recs. There classes are both on Saturday mornings. Hannah has been wanting to do this for over a year. They both filled up to chore charts to "pay" for there ballet slippers and class.
She likes praticing ballet, drawing and playing with Heber. They have a bitter/sweet relationship, normally more sweet than bitter. And they can play princess marries cowboys and indians for a long time.
Hannah is all girl. She loves princesses and dark pink. Her favorite princesses are Sleeping Beauty and the Twelve Dancing Pricesses. Her girlness rubs of onto Olive as well.
She is super quirky and this come out in different ways, like driving her tricycle like a drunkard. Or just her weird of the the wall questions and remarks.

Scoot the Boot

Dewey's scooting backwards these day. He keeps getting stuck in the corners and under furniture.
