The things she comes up with!!

Well, to start with, I still cannot upload any pictures and so much has gone on!! We had a blast for Halloween and then we had her birthday party - even though Allie will not be 4 until December 14th, we celebrate the 1st weekend in November. The way James is working, he is not home for her birthday and it is too hard to do it with Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. So, ever since she has been here, we have had her party the 1st weekend in November. She had a blast and we have awesome pics to post one day!!

Anyway, today I was off work and we ran a few errands and I started working on my Christmas village. She was in her room playing and watching a movie. I needed to cut a few boards to adjust the size of my village to a smaller area than I usually use. I was outside in the driveway and I had the boards set up on saw horses, the cordless saw and other tools. I started cutting and the door flew open -- here she came running out the house - she heard the saw, here is our conversation:

Her -- Wait - that is my daddy's!!!
Me - yes I can use them too
Allie -- Well, you better be careful, don't want you to hurt yourself on daddy's stuff!!
Me - thank you and I will be careful

Then she saw me when I was using the level

Allie -- That is my daddy's too
Me. -- yes but I can use it also
Allie -- I hope you asked my daddy cause he don't like his tools messed up
Me -- yes I can use it when I need it

I then finished and started picking up

Allie -- Are you finished?
Me -- yes
Allie -- did you clean up??
Me -- yes - I am cleaning up now
Allie -- did you put my daddy's tools up??
Me -- yes I did
Allie -- are you sure??
Me -- yes
Allie -- my daddy don't like when you don't put his tools up!!!

My question is: When did she learn this cause her daddy never puts the tools back where they belong?????????

Allie & Meeshu

Well, we bought Meeshu home!! Does little girl look happy or what??? Meeshu was 4 1/2 weeks old and was weened from her mother, well that is what we were told!!! I had to get up every 3 - 4 hours during the night to feed her. She is now 6 1/2 weeks old and is now sleeping though the night. YEAH!! She has already been though every thing under the sun. Allie has had her do flips, dressed her in doll clothes and put diapers on her!! Meeshu is very playful and loves to chase Allie. Abbie (our other dog) is still not sure about this puppy. Abbie was Queen for a long time and then she had to put up with Allie and now a puppy!!!

Bringing Meeshu home!!

Playing with her on her bed!

Allie, Puppet & Hannah

Allie was talking to Hannah on the phone, she gave the phone to daddy and she started playing with the socks on the couch (load of clean clothes) she made sock puppets and then wanted to talk to Hannah again. She went to sit on her swing and talked to Hannah with her puppet. She had the puppet talking into the phone and she was so funny, changing her voice!! She also had her daddy's sock on her leg which went all the way to her thigh!! Enjoy!


Hurricane Gustav

We stayed home for Hurricane Gustav, we had my in-laws and sister-in-law here for several days. We also had my parents dog Gigi. The storm was not so horrible here at our house but my parents 5 streets over lost their big tree in the back yard and their sunroom roof now needs to be replaced - water is pouring in!! My in-laws had no damage 100 miles away except for a ceiling fan blade on the outside patio. They just had no electricity for over a week. We went to check out their house and saw many trees down and power lines laying on the street. Allie had lots of fun being out of school for a week and then having Paw Paw to play with. They enjoyed playing with stickers and also playing puppies!!! We also went to a friends house and Allie picked out her new puppy - she will be bringing her home in a few weeks!!

Gigi enjoying swinging on Allie's swing (Yes, this swing is in our living room)!!

Trees uprooted near my in-laws house!

Power lines down and you had to drive over the wires.

Allie was talking to her grandmother on the phone and she told her that she was going to make cookies for her, she laid the phone down looked at me and said I need to make cookies for Maw Maw and you need to help ME!!!!!!!!!

So we went to visit this last weekend so she made cookies at Maw Maw's house. She really had a good time and enjoyed every minute of it!!!!!!!!!!! She has made cookies before but we made them from scratch this time.

Using the mixer for first time!!

Making big and little cookies!!

The best part - licking the beater!!

Beach Pictures from Vacation

We actually never went to the "real" beach. Everyone was sleeping in one morning so Allie and I walked across the street to walk on the beach!! Of course she got wet and at first wasn't to sure about the waves!! She loves sand as we had went to a private beach and she played for hours in the sand and in the water but there were no waves and the water actually had a cement bottom! It was more of a private lagoon with different areas. One area had water slides which she liked but loved playing in the sand!

Wasn't sure of the waves at first!!!!

Allie washing shells, she loved finding the little shells!!

Allie washing the sand off her leg!!

I love this pic, my camera actually had fogged up but the pics came out great!!

A Little of Everything

We have had a very busy summer. Hannah has been here most of the summer attending different camps. Allie has been busy being a 3 yr old. I taught several weeks of swimming lessons and now we are enjoying the summer. One day they washed the van and/or just played in the water. Also they played in the pool one day. I put Allie's play tent over the pool to keep them out of the direct sunlight they had a blast.
