Birthday Girl

Wow, my baby is 4! She just started Primary, sunbeams, finally. The other day she fell and hit her head and immediately said, "It's ok, I'm ok, I'm in Primary now." That comes up a lot lately, "I'm in Primary." She is a big girl now. She loves to help me, especially in the kitchen. She loves Pink and Purple, Barbies and baby dolls. She REALLY doesn't like her hair done. She loves to have jammie days, most every day lately. She has her bath and everything and then goes right into another pair of jammies. She loves to watch Scooby Doo, have stories read to her at night, mommy to sing to her and then mommy to lay with her.

Here she is helping to knead our favorite, homemade naan (Indian Flatbread)
Here she is in her new dress from Nana Paula on her very first day of Primary.

Reggie, our elf on the shelf.

We finally got an elf on the shelf this year! Micah named him Reginald and we call him Reggie for short. He doesn't leave us any treats or surprises like I've heard some elves do, but he does hide or go to a different place every night. The kids had a fun time looking for Reggie every morning. Here are just a few of the places we found him.
On a date with Taylor.
Practicing the piano
Hidden in a drawer in the bathroom.
Playing football with one of the boys build a bears.
Atop our Christmas presents from Santa! He's back in storage now and we are looking forward to seeing him again next season.
