she's back!

"I'm so CUTE!"

Little Miss Jillian surprised us all by wanting to cut off her long locks into this cute, sassy bob! It's my absolute favorite hairstyle for her - matches her spunky little personality and bubbly voice. I also love how it makes her look like a little girl again -- they grow up way too quickly and this brings her back to the sweet 5 year old she is! Bonus - it's much easier to care for and so much cooler during this hot, humid MN summer!

Mommy: How did you get so cute?

Elliott: I don't know.

Mommy: Who made you so cute?

Elliott: Daddy

Mommy: Who made you so smart?

Elliott: Daddy

Mommy: What did mommy make you?

Elliott: CRAZY! (giggle, giggle, giggle)

favorite things

Okay, you know how OPRAH has an entire show dedicated to her 'favorite things'? I'm pretty sure she has never used atleast half the stuff she gives away on that show -- but I spent the weekend using this goodie and wouldn't have known what to do with out it! I have used it so much over the last several years, I think it should be given to you as you leave the hospital with your tiny bundle of joy! After the girls tossed their cookies a combined dozen times this weekend, this little wonder rescued my carpet more than once! We really need to work on Miss Jillian getting her fanny into the bathroom in time. *sigh* Sorry for the not so pretty picture I've painted for you, but such is my life today!

Last Day of School



Wow! Look at what a difference a year of school makes - much older and perhaps a little wiser, too! Elliott and I are both so excited to get our girls home for the summer. We are looking forward to sleeping in a little, and heading out for lots of fun - catch us if you can! We'll be at the parks, the zoos, the beaches, and more!
