It's the little things: Sleepovers

A few months back Aubrey had her very first sleepover with her best friend Cianna. They had lots of fun and keep asking to do it again.

Well, the girls are also asking about having a sleepover with their favorite cousin, Katiya! After months and months, stretching it as far as we could, the time finally came. Aubrey and Allyson had their first sleepover at Katiya's. My girls were thrilled to be staying at Auntie's house. All three girls kept asking when we were going to leave so they could start the sleep over.

Auntie was going to have her hands full with this crew!

I thought Austin would be so sad to leave his sisters, NOPE!

He talked the WHOLE way home, he usually falls asleep in the car after Friday Night Pizza. He stayed up later than usual and enjoyed some ice cream with Daddy and some extra snuggles. He went right to sleep and slept in! Yay!

When I went to pick up the girls, I was so excited to hear about their night. I heard that they all did pretty well and I see more sleepovers in our future!

Aubrey is totally loving doing some of her school work on the computer. She told me that she feels like she's ready to be a grown up now, since she can use a computer now.

Allyson really looks up to Aubrey. She wants to be doing just about everything and anything Aubrey does. School work, yep little sister wants to do that. Color, play outside, rainbow loom... yep yep yep all of those things she wants to do.

Of all the places in the house to choose to play with the iPod, he runs over and lays on the kitchen rug.



Who is this kid? Picking out her own clothes, climbing trees and posing with peace signs, Aubrey is getting so old.

Allyson: It's hard to believe that she's going to be four soon. I mean, we just brought her teeny tiny self home from the hospital, right?  She's turned into this big ... KID...

Austin is finally enjoying riding around on his little trike. Allyson usually claims this as hers.

Yesterday, we made our first trip to the pumpkin patch!

Aubrey was so thrilled about our visit. She'd been asking me when we could go.

Allyson liked climbing all over the tractor tires.

Austin wasn't too thrilled about our quick trip. It was right after lunch, about 90* outside. Little guy just kept asking to be held and to go home.
