Just Playing :)




Emma and Noodle

Our dogs Jack ("Noodle") and Mikey were enjoying a little bit of left over homemade pizza that we ate for dinner last night. :) We were surprised when Emma sat down next to Noodle and "helped" him eat. She was moving his plate closer to him, petting him and telling him "Good boy, you eat Jack". Her actions were soft and controlled. Jack trusted her enough to not snap or growl. For those few minutes Emma had control of herself. It was awesome. :) And, as you can see Sophie preferred to just sit and take her time eating!!!



Spongebob Squarepants?

I am so NOT a fan of the cartoon; Spongebob Squarepants. I don't understand the point of the show...in fact I don't think that there IS a point to the show. Luckily my girls do not watch a ton of TV. And, when they do it is often a cartoon with a cute little lesson at the end-so at least they are getting something out of it. Awhile back they discovered Spongebob....*sigh*. It does not help that he is commercialized on yogurt cups and underwear...etc. I know that the phase will pass and fortunately they don't watch it too much. But still.
That said, I created some fun for them last Sunday morning. I made two Spongebob costumes in 30 seconds and it kept them happy for a good 30 minutes. :) I would just like to say that the ladies chose their OWN pajamas, the mismatched outfit and long sleeves have nothing to do with me. ;D

-Sophie's 1st Day of "School"-

Monday September 13th was Sophie's 1st Day of "School"! We have enrolled Sophie in a class that is called "Starlets" through our Early Childhood Educational Department. The class meets once a week for 90 minutes & each student attends with a parent or favorite grown up. :) It is structured a lot like preschool. Sophie REALLY enjoyed her first day and was very compliant about posing for the obligatory pictures below! She insisted on carrying her bag of supplies all by herself. ;)
