Life with E.

Tonight as we were driving home E. started singing a song...
"the itsy ditsy spider" I think she is the blond relative of the itsy bitsy spider :) and may be somehow connected with another of E's favorite characters - Dora the Displorer (distant relative of Dora the explorer) but I'm not for sure.

A Weekend at the Sand Dunes

A couple weeks ago E. and I made the drive to Alamosa to visit the Sand Dunes with our dear friends. We had a great time climbing the massive amount of sand in the middle of the is really kind of surreal.
It was so nice to be with another family with kiddos. E. loved playing with the girls!
Here is a  photo summary of the weekend.

At the end of the day....watching Ice Age on the ipad in the hotel...happy girls

A New "Do"

About six months ago E. took a turn at cutting her own hair....without permission, of course :) we had a long tearful discussion about who should be cutting E's hair and she promised me she would never do it again....HA! Famous last words.....a few weeks ago she came upstairs and had given herself a "mullet"! Oh my....I was mad. I know, it's just hair, but it's the second time she has done  this.....
Anyhow, the lovely and talented Julie fixed the mullet yesterday. Here's the new pixie cut :) on the pixie at the pool...

E. Funny....

Tonight we were having a tickle fight and I pretended to take E's ear off her head....she of course thought that was hysterical and joined right in the fun trying to get it back from me. Here is the conversation that ensued...
E. "give it back"
M: " you have to pay me with three hugs and kisses"
E. looks puzzled...."no, give it back"
M: "as soon as you pay me with three hugs and kisses"
more tickling and finally 3 hugs and one kiss...
a restored ear.
E. says she is taking my nose and my ear...she is not as gentle as I am in the removing of body parts :)
M: "give me my nose and my ear back....I need them"
E: "no"
more tickling
M: "what can I give you so that you will give me my nose and my ear"
E: completely straightfaced and hand out...."eight dollars"
No hugs and kisses will do...cold hard cash.....too funny!

Oh, those Summer Nights

Getting outside in the evening after work is such fun. E. loves to get wet in her turtle pool, with the sprinklers, in a puddle, you name it, if it's water she's ready to get wet.
