I was kind enough to let her practice with her new camera on my kids and the only thing that could have made them better is if they actually would have smiled! They turned out way cute, so take a look!

I started my year off by going to lunch with my friend Celeste. She left me for the sunnier skies of Phoenix in July which has really taken a toll on my sanity. So it was refreshing to spend an afternoon with the only one (correct me if I'm wrong) who doesn't judge me for my anal retentive tendencies and completely understands my motives. I heart her.
Calvin turned 3. He almost vomited at his own party after taking a bite out of his candle
but that was the highlight of my night! Gifts of mention: the Indiana Jones Potato Head-love it! And the SmartCycle- minus the fact that he pedals backwards. But for now it serves as a good jumping off point to play Buzz Lightyear!
I went to the spa for the first time and got a wonderful facial and my eyebrow waxed. To spare any confusion that wasn't a typo, however I do have 2 separate brows now which I think is a good look for everyone! I've made the decision to be a monthly spa go-er of facials and massages. After all, taking care of 3 kids is hard work!
A couple of Saturdays ago my parents took us down to the Energy Solutions Arena for Playhouse Disney LIVE! I'm having issues getting my pictures to upload but I'm pretty sure Calvin didn't blink once, it was so funny! For being right at his nap time he did pretty well and seemed to have fun. I won't mention the small tantrum he threw that caused him to lose his shoe. Or the part at Intermission when he wanted to go home and we had to bribe him with ice cream to stay.
We can't forget the Ali Update. As of Christmas she pulls herself up and zooms all along the furniture, occassionally gets good enough balance to stand by herself for up to 10 seconds, got a haircut to even out the extreme Victoria Beckham A-line she was sporting, has a tooth, and also got her eyebrow waxed for the first time. Okay, the last one is a lie, but I'm seriously considering it as long as the general public doesn't find this to be borderline child abuse.
Hopefully the new year will allow more blogging time so I don't have to play catch-up!

A couple of weeks ago the home teachers stopped by. Calvin opened the door, told them to “Come in!”, shook their hands, and then asked them if they wanted to watch Indiana Jones with us! After they left he shook their hands again, shut the door, then said to me “They were nice guys!”
We were at ShopKo and this old man wearing a hat came up to Calvin and waved and said hi to him. Calvin just stared at him and never said anything but he had a look on his face that I’ve never seen him make before. When the guy walked away Calvin turned to me with his eyes lit up and said “Indiana Jones!”
Calvin now sings the Alphabet Song: A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-J-Hardy-L-M-N-O-P….Now I know my A-B-C-D-E-F-Gs, Next time won’t you sing with me!
I bought a little votive candle centerpiece thing, and when I put the red candles in it Calvin said, “It’s so pretty! Like Jell-o!”
Other than that, Calvin continues the daily routine of curiosity and cruelty.
