She's So Obviously My Kid...

because she does goofball things like this and then laughs hysterically at herself.  

Sorry for the lull in posts.  Things are good here.  Little stinker man is now sleeping through the nights.  (This is where you hear a choir of angels singing Hallelujah.)  However, Ava has decided she can't sleep through the night by herself anymore.  (Booooo!!)  One of these days I will get a full nights sleep!  The weather has been great here so we've busted out the water table and have been playing outside a lot with plenty of chalk, bubbles and soccer.  I keep thinking I'll tire the kid out and she'll sleep but no.  There haven't been many crafty things going on here lately but I'm hoping to hop back on that wagon again soon.  Happy Wednesday all!

Ava and God

I was getting Ava and Cole dressed this morning in an attempt to get to the store before the rain hit our area.

Me:  Oh, no!  It's raining.
Ava:  That's okay, Mommy.  God's just watering the flowers.  (Ava then looks out the window and I can tell her gears are turning.)
Ava: You know God can't hear me.
Me:  Sure he can, Ava.  Why would you say that?
Ava:  He's way up in heaven.
Me:  He can hear you even way up in heaven.  You just pray and he hears you.
Ava:  (Looking up and yelling)  God, please stop watering the flowers because Mommy wants to go to the store and not get wet.

I love that kid so much!

We were at Forest Park this past weekend with my niece, Lexi.  It was a beautiful day and I had the camera with me so I started snapping a few photos of the girls together.  Once Lexi picked up on what I was doing she decided to start directing and posing all the shots.  She came up with all these ideas on her own and I just took the pictures.  The expressions on their faces just crack me up.  They were trying to be so serious in some of the pictures.  Some of these are really quite good.  Who knows, maybe there a future for Lexi in photography.
