Not Much to Say

I really don't have much to write about today, but since I hadn't posted anything since Friday, I thought I better get something down. I'll try to recap some of the cutest that has oozed forth from my daughters over the past few days...

  • On Saturday we headed over to Santa Cruz to attend a retreat that the non-profit I volunteer at (oh, and am on the board of) just for the day. Daddy was flying, so it was just me and the girls. The girls were the only blond people in attendance, which is unheard of in our normal circles. But, they loved dancing around to the music and entertaining everyone with their demonstrations of what frogs and baby jaguars say. (Don't ask about the baby jaguar...too much Dora and Diego). One little girl who was there with her parents is in love with Kate. At one point she told me, "She's so BEAUTIFUL! I can't stop looking at her!"
  • That same night they refused to fall asleep on the way home. It was almost 10pm when they finally got in bed. And what time were they up? 6:45am. You know we took some serious naps on Sunday.
  • Daddy made it home just after bathtime on Sunday night. The girls were SO excited to see him. Kate had been saying most of the weekend, "I wanna see Dadda." or "Hug kiss dadda." So, when she heard the garage door open, she went ballistic. I had to wrestle her into her diaper before I let her run downstairs. She didn't care that she was naked. She ran outside in the cold yelling, "Dadda! Dadda! Dadda!" There are worse ways to be welcomed home.
  • Last night in the tub I was telling Padyn that we are going to see Coley and Jalyn this coming weekend. I thought she'd be pretty excited. But her first response was, "Don't we have to go on an airplane? I don't want to go on an airplane." When I told her we could bring Daddy's computer, her face lit up and she yelled, "We can watch Dora and Diego!" Then Kate joined in, chatted, 'Dora Boots! Dora Boots!" (Although, when she says it, it sounds more like Door Boos.)
  • Padyn has been trying out new vocabulary lately. Tonight she told us that she didn't like something because it was "porn." WHAT?!?! Oh, wait. She meant boring. We didn't attempt to explain porn to her.
  • Tonight we went out to dinner with Papa and BonBon. We were sitting in a booth, with Kate across from me between Daddy and BonBon. She kept pointing to everyone and naming them, then like was working on memorizing everyone...Dadda, Momma, Payee, Papa, BaBa, Tate! Then it would start again. Sometimes she'd mess up and she'd say the wrong name. And I swear, she must have gotten this from Padyn...she'd say, "No no no." and give the correct name or point to the correct person. Very cute.

I'm sure there is much much more, but these are the ones that jump to the forefront of my brain. Hope your weekend was full of joy.

Ok, firstly, can't WAIT to see how your numbers go up now that you've got the word "p0rn" on your blog -- and look! There it is again! Ok, I'll put a zero in there, just to fool the webcrawlers.

We're so excited to see you guys, too! And I am glad that at least this time Padyn didn't say anything about Coley hitting her. We'll have to seriously talk about that with C when you all arrive!
