More Dress Up!

Nothing beats dressing up with the girls... Bella, Alexis Caudell, and Abby Hawk all got together and dressed up today and played with their babies. (Alyssa Spangler was there too for a while.) They have been having fun being girls and doing all sorts of girly things.

Dress Up

Brad was getting ready to go bear hunting and Bella wanted to go too. So she dressed up in dad's hunting gear, so she could go.

Bella's friend, Sierra, brought over little aprons, hats, and oven mits so they could play restaurant. It was so cute!

The Ant Bully...

So... Bella is deathly terrified of many things. One of the things she's been scared of lately is ants. No idea why, but they really scared her one day. We were at the church practicing a song and she went to the church bathroom to go potty. She didn't come out for quite some time, so I went to go check on her. I heard terrible, bloody murder screaming, so I thought maybe she got stuck or something. Nope- she saw an ant on the floor by the toilet, so she wouldn't get down off the toilet. My girl needed to toughen up.
Brad and I worked with her a bit on the ant thing, showing her that she could step on them, ect. Ant are harmless. She got much better through the next few weeks and yesterday I heard her in the kitchen...
In the sweetest little voice: " Hello little ant. What cha doing? Are you crawling on the floor?" In a little meaner voice: "Not anymore..." Stomp stomp stomp.
Yep, she was buttering it up before she stomped it. She is definately one of a kind.

Easter Dresses!

Thanks to Grandma Sue, the girls got beautiful easter dresses with little white purses. They thought they were so cool because they matched and everyone said how beautiful they looked. Mom got a little carried away, though, and got a matching shirt for her and a matching tie for dad. We were a cute little fam for Easter!


Bella got a new scooter and helmet from the Easter Bunny!

Ivy wasn't feeling so good. This is how excited she got about her
easter basket and toys.

We have had alot of fun looking for easter eggs all around the house...several times!

Playdough... the 8th wonder of the world!!!

So Bella got a pretty cool thing from Grandma Haslam... Playdough. She loves it! She has quite the imagination with it. Up above... you can see she made a penguin. How neat!!

Then... Bella made her whole family... All by herself! She even figured out by herself to use the lid of the playdough jar to cut the faces of her family. My that girl is growing up.

Swim Time!

Its a tradition to go swimming with the Sorensens when they are here :)

Time with Cousins!

Bella liked sitting in Grandma's little chairs with Kate and watching HORTON. She also got to have a sleep over with Emma, her older cousin. Ivy really liked hangng out with all of her cousins, too...especially Jon and Kate because they were fun to tease.
