Haley's World


Haley brought in this picture and just began talking explaining it all to me. It went something like this:
"Here is the world. Here is Utah. Here is China. Here is Kloomee. Have you ever heard of Kloomee? It's where Kayla lives. And this is where Angelina lives. It's called Kloom. Everyone speaks with their hands there. And then this is Loomee Lu. It's where all the monsters live. They are scary and nobody likes them, so they have to stay there. Except there are some Meowey's there. That's what the cats are called--Meowey's. " And then she goes on and on and on. She's so fun to listen to when she gets going.

Look what they had in Walmart the other day! I think I would like a life-size statue of me built out of Legos. Maybe that's what I'll ask for for Christmas.

Creating

Haley and I did some painting today. She said her painting was of the sky. That's a pretty cool sky. (Even though she wears an apron, I still make her take off her shirt because she inherited the "messy gene" from me. )

Sunday Afternoons

I wanted to document how we usually spend Sunday afternoons.
Britton drawing. He was making a dragon book and it turned out so nicely. He even made me draw a couple of dragons and then laughed at my first attempt and called it the "Chick Drag" because it looked like a chicken. After a few tips from him, my second drawing was much improved.

Haley taking a nap while Jason watches football (very typical of Sundays).

Me, in the kitchen, cooking and cleaning.

Girl's Hairstyles

I saw a link to this blog on someone's site a while back. It shows lots of ways to do girl's hair. Anyway, it is fun to get ideas from. Since Haley won't even let me comb her hair, I don't know how useful it will be to me, but oh well. When I say I need to do her hair, she says, "I'm in charge of my hair and I like it this way." So, that's the reason she has crazy, snarly hair the majority of the time. Anyway, she does like to look at the pictures on the blog and she did want me to try one afterwards. I think we did a variation of something, but it was fun. She has two knotty twist things on top of her head, then just a braid in the back.

Halloween

Britton as Obi Wan Kenobi (I made this costume)

Haley sort of dressed up as a fairy. She was not feeling well so she wasn't too thrilled about getting into her costume again (the 3rd or 4th time) to go trick-or-treating.

Haley and Chloie

On Tuesday, we babysat Chloie while Mijoung went to get her driver's license (Congratulations, Mijoung!) The girls played so well together. Afterwards, they both dressed up as fairies to go to storytime at the library.
