It's what'cha get for having 2 older sisters, sleepy sickness and Green Team

 So Anderson had to put up with this too.  Although, I won't publish those pictures because they make him very mad.... If Whit protests 4 years from now, I will delete this post.  Okay, Whit Huggle Bear??!!He does look kinda cute though.  The girls love him so much, they say the sweetest things to him and shower him with love love love.  I need to record them loving on him....

Something is very wrong about having to wake up a 5 year old boy at 6:30am every morning.  It's sad.  I do get the kids to bed earlyish, but sometimes it really catches up with Anderson.  He got half dressed the other morning while crying the whole time.  He finally walked over to me saying, "Moooommeeee, I am SIIIIIICK...."  He did have some gunk so I said, "Okay Buddy, you can stay home with Mommy today..." He went immediatly to our room, climbed up in our bed and waited on me. He fell asleep about 90 seconds after his sisters left for school and slept for 3 hours.  When he woke up, he opened his eyes, looked at me and said, "Mommy, I feel GOOD!"  He was excited to go to school late, just in time for reccess.

I am the reluctant Green Team Chair for our school.  It hasn't been all that bad.  I had fun with the Green Team Upcycle contest and I love working with the kids but of course my favorite part is doing the bulletin board. ;) 

Father Daughter Dance

 Since the girls are new to Girl Scouts, they never had the opportunity to attend a Father Daugther Dance.   They went out for dinner with friends and then went and danced.  Apparently, Ainsley Grace was busting a move with her friends.  And Daddy danced in a circle with the girls and stepped on their feet!  Haha, well, that HAD to happen with all those little feet in the way...  They had a ball!

I never realized how much I loved corsages and boutonnieres until they were all wearing them.  Soo sweet!

Climbing, crawling machine

 Whit is 11 months old today.  He is loved so much, we all just eat him up everyday, every moment.  The picture on the diswasher does NOT show him with his feet on top of the silverware holder.  I couldn't get my phone ready in time...  He is all over the place.  He loves to play outside the most.  Digging in the dirt then eating it then smiling a big dirty smile.  Ugh.  He is also crawling up the stairs with lightening speed.  It's hard to believe he is almost 1.
