Sunday, November 21

hmm - I'm a little behind on my blogging (starting to be a once-a-week blog instead of a daily blog...). Above, Brenna and my mom having fun at the park together :-) Don't you love her sense of style??

Brenna was supposed to be showing my mom how to model below - can you tell she wasn't interested in being included in the picture, lol!

my little model finally came out today - I got to play photographer and she played superstar :-) (hmm, I think maybe it is the dress - I may have sequins all over my house, but I do believe I have a performer). In case you can't tell, Dustin and Brenna decided it was time for the Christmas tree to be up, so yesterday morning they got busy putting up the tree :-)
she loves the little red sweater that came with the Christmas dress from Rusty last year (in fact, she loves the dress and even wore it to preschool this week - she loves anything girly and sleeveless right now :-)

hugging the Grinch. Brenna and daddy watched the movie this morning together - she said this year that it didn't scare her :-)

lots of sun in my living room today :-)

Brenna's favorite shoes...
Hello All!!!

Hope all is well out there. Brenna came down with a cold the middle of last week, so not much to report here. I guess I should have known something was coming since we have had some afternoon naps here...
Brenna did help with the cleaning on Monday (our cleaning day - maybe one day Brenna will take these over for me - maybe I am dreaming a little too much, lol). Brenna went to preschool on Tuesday and Wednesday, but she didn't sleep well on Wednesday night and woke up with a sore throat and a stuffy nose, so we stayed home together. We did go out for some cold medicine and to pick up our mini-posters I ordered (Brenna's room is finally almost all together - now just to finish the curtains - I took some new pics of her room - I will try to share them soon!), but that was it. (We were very bummed to miss our afternoon at McDonald play area - especially as I told Brenna on Wednesday evening that we would go play with friends :-( Hopefully, we will be able to get together another time soon.)
With Brenna's cold medicine, she has slept well the past few nights and she is eating well, so I'm sure she won't be down long with the head cold. (although I question if she is ever really down - she always seems to have an abundance of energy, unlike me lately...). Brenna is also getting really good at her new board games - her two favorites are Chutes and Ladders and Candyland right now (and she has definetly figured out the object is to win and doesn't like to lose. Comically, when my sister called the other day, we were playing one of the games and I won - Brenna looked at me and said "Good Job" and then ran away to cry because she lost - hmmmm...It didn't take her long to recover and we played some other games. But, she did better with the loss yesterday and we just quickly moved onto another game, no problem...).
Yesterday, Brenna and Dustin put up the Christmas tree in the morning and then went out shopping in the afternoon. I should have started on some of my crafting, but instead took a nice relaxing bath and walked the dog (and vegged in front of the TV - I will watch just about anything on TV, not good for my ambitious craft fair projects!). Luckily my sister called and broke me out of my TV spell or the dog probably wouldn't have been walked.
Brenna played model for me today - I just loved the outfit that Dustin and her decided on today - it just made me smile :-)
Well, I think that is about it!
Take Care!
