Karen the Cranberry

 One morning while wearing my blue bathrobe helping the girls get ready. Natalie says matter of factually, "Mom you look like a big blueberry!"  I decided it was about time to document the "blueberry" but as a cranberry (Don't really need the world seeing me in my awesome blue bathrobe. :)

Awesome Aunt Lisa

 My super talented Sis just sent us these. (We can't wait until Baby Sister gets here so she can wear hers too.)
We have a variety of awesome crocheted things from Aunt Lisa, hats, shoes, flip-flops,  hair clips, skirts.... If my girls are wearing something crocheted, good chance it came from Auntie Lisa.

You can see more of her talent on her Facebook page Blackhart Crochet. (And some cute pictures of some of my nieces and nephews.)

 Silly Faces

Natalie loving that it's purple AND pink. 

A week ago Millie burned her nose on the griddle. She still looks a little Rudolphish but it's getting better.

Miss Ems

 I asked her for a smile and got this....

Work it, girl. Work it!


Once a month at Camille's school there is a Best Assembly. They have all kinds of things they talk about one is recognizing kids that have demonstrated that month's character trait. In January Camille got a certificate for being Caring. (Which we missed because we were in Dubai.) This month Camille got a certificate for demonstrating Fairness. Natalie, Emily, and I got to attend the assembly.

Camille standing up getting recognized. 
 After the assembly I was talking to a Mom of one of the boys in Camille's class. His name is Dylan and he likes Camille. (He also got a Fairness certificate--so not a bad kid :) ) His Mom told me that he proposed to Camille and that she had accepted. I talked with her about it at home. She said, "Oh yeah Dylan asked me that but I didn't say anything."

"You didn't? His Mom told me you said yes."
"Well...yeah I did. But I didn't really mean it.  I just wanted him to feel happy. Plus he's 6 1/2 and I'm 5 1/2 and it's not like kids can really get married anyway."

Camille has lost tooth number 2 on April 22nd. She lost her first tooth at school during math while Brad and I were in Dubai. Tooth #2 was also lost at school during math but this time we were here to play tooth fairy for her.
At the assembly they had a chart for total teeth lost at school. For April it was 24 teeth (one being Camille's) and total for the year the school has lost 123 teeth. (2 of those are Camille's.) I really feel like she's doing her part to help the school out. They're hoping to pass the 150 mark for lost teeth this school year.
