Maggie's busted lip

M fell at school during play time and busted her upper lip and her nose. Her lip looked 10 times worse than this the next morning.
You can see how it is swollen and red.
You can really see her puffy nose and lip now! Poor baby!
She asked me to put these pictures on here so everyone could see her "boo-boo!"

Being silly & wavy hair

C just being silly and wanting his picture taken b/c the girls had theirs taken.
The girls with wavy hair for school one morning. I french braided their hair and told them that if they slept in the braids, they would wake up with beautiful wavy hair. They LOVED it!!

We had made the offer to the girls several times to get their ears pierced. They always declined, but one Saturday morning, M woke up and asked if she could get her ears pierced that day. We happily agreed and Z decided that she too wanted hers pierced.
After a few tears, here she is with her new gold stud earrings. She did amazing and LOVES how pretty she looks with them. She can't wait for the 6 weeks to be up so she can take those studs out and try on Mommies earrings!!! Oh no!! We have created a monster!

Close up of her new earrings. I would like to say that I have pictures of Z's new earrings but she TOTALLY FREAKED OUT when the lady came near her with the ear piercing gun. No amount of bribing from myself, daddy, MiMi, or PaPa could change her mind. Later she told us that she will try again when she is 10 years old!!!

1st Day of Kindergarten

August 18th was the kids 1st day of kindergarten. They awoke to some fun surprises in the kitchen to get their day started off right.
They are sleepy but excited!
All dressed and ready. I let them pick out their own clothes for the day and was a little shocked by what they each chose but the clothes definitely showed up off their personalities.
New backpacks!
One more surprise! I was their kindergarten teacher for the 1st week and 1/2 of school. Unfortunately, their kindergarten teacher had a personal emergency and was in the hospital for a week. So, it was back to school for all 4 of us.

All 3 at the end of the day. M was upset b/c I wouldn't let her read a book to the class on the 1st day. She said I was a very mean teacher. C and Z had a great day and thought it was cool that I was their teacher.
