Annie's Tantrums

This is a face I make about 80 times a day. Especially if you look at me and try to get me to smile.

And this is what I do when the world has come to an end, or if my mom walks away from me for 2.1 seconds.

One Year Ago Today

I was looking through some pictures trying to figure out what to blog. Then, I just wondered to myself, "I wonder what I was doing one year ago today?" I found this picture:

Natalie and a very pregnant Mommy were in Palm Springs with Grandma, Grandpa and Carrie and Andy. A fun, spontaneous trip. What were you doing one year ago today?

I'm Sick

I haven't felt like blogging much lately, I'm feeling a little under the weather. But, here are a few pictures of my cuties. Just for kicks.

Natalie: I'm going to the store.

Mommy: What are you going to get?

Natalie: Milk, and bread, and eggs...

Mommy: And suger?

Natalie: No, and pepsi!

The staples of life. Except at our house it's really Coke Zero.

First Day of School

Preschool started this week, Natalie was so excited. She was the first one in the classroom without even a look back...not too surprising. I'm so excited for her, I know she'll love it!

Went straight to the toys

When I asked her what she did in preschool she looked up at me with a big smile and said, "I went poo-poo on the potty!" Hooray Natalie!

Dora Birthday

Okay, well, I know it's been almost a month, but I decided to record Natalie's birthday party for posterity. Since I stressed about it for weeks in advance, I figure it deserves a spot on the blog.

Of course we did a Dora themed party, since Natalie has been pretending she's Dora and I'm Boots for her whole second year on this earth. Well, did I order the bounce house and pizza and call it a day? Of course not, that would have been too easy! I planned a Dora course complete with a ransom note from Swiper who swiped our Dora pinata, a map to tell us where to go (through the musical garden, to starcatcher pond, and across Bubble bridge), and little activities along the way. Well, I guess all the hard work payed off, because Natalie and her friends really did have a great time. But next year, it's a bounce house.

A shout out to my friend Jodie who created this amazing Dora cake, yes folks, she molded each tiny character with love, she is amazing. See her cake blog here.

Dora and Diego tatoos for everyone, I didn't think church was the next day, oh swell!

The course begins:

Starcatcher Pond (a fountain near our house)

Natalie opens her presents, she wanted to play with each one afterward, and I'm like, "No, onto the next one, sorry Nat, you must open them all first!"

Sidenote: Seriously the week after this party, Natalie's favorite show switched from Dora to the Backyardigans, so I guess Dora went out with a bang.
