ABC's, Tights, & Huddies

Bri is so fun. She is really into singing her ABC's right now, but it's more like singing the Alphabet Soup song when she sings it. ACPTEBT and so on. She's got the tune down, just not the order of the letters. Very cute. One of these days maybe I'll acutally get the video camera out and tape her!

Don and I actually went on a real date this weekend! It doesn't happen enough. It was so fun and, as we always do whe we go out, we vowed to do it more often. We decided to go out on the 9th (the aniversary of our first date) instead of fighting the crowds on Valentines Day. We went to the Melting Pot and had the most indulgent, yummy meal. It's so nice not to have to rush through a meal at a resturant picking up thrown french fries etc... Anyway, it was a great date with my hubby. xoxo

A few pics from the week...

All dressed up and ready to go. Brighton loves getting in pretty dresses and is especially excited about putting on the tights that go with the pretty dresses right now. She always asks for tights and actually applauds when she gets to wear them. So funny. She definitely doesn't get her thing for tights from me. I hate wearing them!

Oh the baby stroller. Perhaps the best $7.99 we ever spent. She does laps with baby around our downstairs several times a day. Man she loves that thing. And more than her love for the stroller, is her love for her baby! It is an ugly baby with the weirdest patch of hair on its head so we got her a cute Cabbage Patch for Christmas. Of course, she only wants to play with ugly baby. She hugs and kisses it, plays nap with it, takes it on rides in the stroller and in the shopping cart, feeds it Cheerios, etc.. Ugly baby is very loved. :)

Brighton is very much into picking out her own clothes. As mentioned above, tights are a favorite right now. She is also into hats and huddies (known to most of us as hoodies). Most of the time I can let her pick out one thing and hurry and put a matching article of clothing on her, but there are those days where she insists on picking out the whole outfit and...surprise!'s usually a total mismatch. :)

Looking cute and innocent as she turns around after pounding on Daddy's laptop.

Brighton saying cheese in her favorite dress. If this dress is clean, it is her number one draft pick hands down!

Very cute! She is getting so big!

Natalie has always been in to picking her own clothes, too. I tried not to fight it unless it was raining and she was picking shorts. Now that she's in kindergarten though I try to at least encourage her to match. :)

Hope you guys are doing well! 3 cheers for going out without kids!

Hi, I know you don't know me, but I found your blog through Amy Fear's. Your husband and I used to hang out when we were in highschool...forever ago, I know, but please tell him Jen "Kusch" said hi. Your family is really cute.

So Cute!! We went to the melting pot for my bday! Great minds think alike. We should go together some time when you come to utah!! Hope things are going well since I can never get a hold of you!

That's hilarious! It's a catch 22 because you're all excited that your child is getting older and more independent and all that, and then they have to go and do independent things like pick out their own outfits or fix their own hair. (That's what Lexi into right now. Blast!!)
I love the "ugly baby" story.

I think that's great that the doll's name is "Ugly Baby". Poor thing. Poor patch of hair. It's a good thing it has Bri to love it. BTW, every time I see the pickles and salsa next to each other in the fridge, I cringe at what they must taste like combined. Too funny.

Hey Ash, Bri looks exactly like you it is crazy. For being "sisters" we don't keep in contact very well. Let me know if you are ever passing through Vegas or going to Utah, I would really like to see you. Love ya
