Recent Scrap Pages

Here are a few recent additions to Harrison's scrapbook. I say recent, but the first two I finished in October (not sure if I posted them or not...) and the last one I started then, but finished over the weekend. Just never enough hours in the day.

This one covers all the US pictures that I had of Harrison.

Playing Outside Today

This afternoon the kids and I went outside to enjoy the nice temps and even though it was windy we had a great time. It was excellent for blowing bubbles because all we had to do was hold our wands up and the bubbles blew by themselves. Harrison loved chasing the bubbles and Ava used up all the bubbles she had (which is not hard given that she spills a lot...). But it was a nice day, wild kids, but nice to have a day to spend with them.
Trying to get a picture, but this is typical of how busy he is.

He can't seem to figure out the slide yet.

Look at the excitement on his face.

Anatomy of a Princess

In Ava's world, she has certain ideas of outfits that embody being a princess. Bradley and I laugh at the outrageous outfits she puts together because they are usually a riot. When she has gone upstairs to get dressed and is taking forever, Bradley always says, "There is no telling what craziness she will be wearing." I find it very humorous, but sometimes he doesn't.

The other week Ava was getting "dressed" and came down in what she said was the "Fanciest Princess Outfit." So here is the anatomy of a princess outfit, broken down piece by piece for your enjoyment.
You start by throwing a crown up on top of some crazy bedhead hair.
Then the ensemble includes a Cinderella nightgown (compliments of Aunt Bethany), a nice puffy vest, a crazy scarecrow sidekick (who we call Michael), and a beautiful butterfly wand (compliments of Grammy and Gramps).
Then you must have gloves. However, when you can't find your real gloves, socks will apparently do. But make sure you wear a rubber band bracelet to help hold them on and add some real pizazz.

Finally, what fancy princess would be complete without her glass slippers (compliments of Aunt Bethany). And I will tell you a secret....Harrison wears these more than Ava does!
