(maybe I'll do more than one post a month, but don't hold your breath!)
We got Savannah a phone! The only reason we caved is because I'm still at work when she gets home. She is THRILLED! She pays for it through her allowance and I have all the parental filters set up. I must admit it's fun texting with her.
Our second child turned ELEVEN! Sydney is such a fun, spunky girl! She's super sensitive, very creative, and so good with Zoey. Happy Birthday Syd Syd!
Me and my little girl
we had KFC for dinner
I love Zoey's surprised look when the camera flash goes off in her face!
Sydney loves her cat poster
we found this at Costco, it's 50 puzzle erasers, she loves them
all she wanted for her birthday was Calico Critters, they're animal families and house set
we didn't have candles so... yep sparklers!
Syd was afraid her cake would burn
Zack loved it (and there's Zoey's surprised look again)
Calico Critters and house
Aren't they cute? It's SO Sydney

Summer taking a break from soccer
One night I was doing Summer's hair and noticed she had bangs! She doesn't have bangs! And they were about an inch long! Then I noticed there were other chunks cut out of her pretty LONG hair! :( Every girl has to do it but I really didn't expect Summer to. She wanted to look like her best friend (who has bangs). So I took her to my friend Gina to see if she could do anything to fix it. We had to cut off a ton, enough to donate to Locks of Love. Her bangs were harder to fix, so we just cut some more to try and cover the really short ones. I was pretty sad. But she does look cute with short hair! I think it makes her look older.
The long ponytail! Sniff!
I'm starting to get used to her short hair.
Celebrating Sydney's birthday at Nana & Pops house
Before school pictures I let Savannah and Sydney get highlights in their hair. They traded for babysitting. They look so cute!

Another milestone...we said we would never do sleepovers. Savannah has had the opportunity to sleep at a friends' house with several girls (they stay up all night watching movies and doing blind make-overs) so we thought that would be ok. We also decided kids can sleep at our house. Sydney had 2 friends over and they had so much fun! Sydney was such a good little hostess, making sure everyone was having fun and comfortable. She cleaned up everything the next day (partly because we said we wouldn't do it again if there was a big mess) She was very responsible. I'm still undecided about sleepovers, if I want to veto any form of it, what do you think about it?

*** ZOEY IS SIX MONTHS ***
I love this cute little nugget SO much! She melts my heart! She is such a blessing and brings such a sweet spirit to our home. We love you Zoe-Zoe!!!!!
(da da daaaaa...) The Oubliette "The forgotten place"
Tom had this great idea to make an "oubliette". A place where he collects things that the kids have left out. They have to earn back their stuff, either by buying it back or doing chores. And they can't just leave it in there because it will end up at DI. They each have a box in our closet. I love the ideas he comes up with. The other brilliant idea he had was to have the kids wash baseboards and floors when they fight. LOVE IT!!!!!
