This is Paiton staying up WAAAAYYY past her bed time singing country songs with her dad. Thus the pulled apart cowboy hat. (she had hidden a bag of chips and was caught red "faced")
She has decided that she can dress herself now...it could be worse. I LOVE the high heels with shorts look. She spent most of the morning "walking" (falling flat on her face). It was pretty cute/funny.
Our AWESOME friends the Finlay's moved this morning bright and early, so we had them over for dinner last night. This is their daughter (Paiter's bestest friend) and Paiter playing on the i-pod with Chris.
This is the girls playing some more, while the rest of us finished up our dessert-I made homemade cinnamon rolls--They ROCKED-if I do say so myself.

Well, maybe she still needs a little practice...and some formal lessons. She is well on her way though. The kid has been watching Saturday's warrior a lot lately and her favorite parts are when the "troubled" kids dance and sing (I hope its not a sign of things to come). Anyway, on one of their dances, they dance on the fence and lean back; I think she thinks that is what she is doing when she leans on the couch. Hiiiiiilarious!!!!!
This one is my favorite video. She is all tuckered out and she shows it; she had been dancing for about 10 minutes, that intensely (I was tired just watching her :-)

ME: Yeah Paiter
P: Look, I'm a ARRR Matey (holding an empty TP roll up to her eye)
ME: You mean a Pirate
P: Yeah mommy a ARRR Matey Piewit
P: Hey mommy
Me: yeah Paiter
P: Where is the pirate? (I taught her how to say pirate correctly)
Me: On his pirate ship in the ocean
P: We don't live on ships, pirates are so silly.
She asks this same question with regards to "the prince", or "princess" all the time, and when I tell her they are with their families at the castle she says
she says it like it is the most fascinating thing she has ever heard.
P: Daddy stop talking, you're makin' me nervous
Chris: (Laughing hysterically) how am I making you nervous?
P: because you won't stop talking and making me nervous
P: UGHHHH, daddy/mommy you're making me soooo angry
P: Night, don't let the bugs bight
P: I love you mostest postest
At least she is learning all about her feelings. Maybe one day we won't cause her such bad/traumatic feelings:)
This last one was one of my personal facorites, but she hasn't said it in a long time.
P: I are the boss!!
ME: No I are the boss
P: NOOO, I are the boss...etc, etc.

This was a really cool play structure that was probably as big or bigger than our house. I only posted this pic because I really liked the picture of the kid.This is a water sculpture that had a little puddle thing the kids could play in. I think she like this one a lot, but mainly because it was so small that there were not a lot of other kids around. She doesn't like being bossed around by the older kids, so this was a good place for her to play.
Ever since our last Utah trip (Christmas vacation) Paiter has been picking her nose nonstop. I think it started out really dry, but now it is just a VERY BAAADD habit!! I had to get a picture of her trying to pick the giant nose. Bad I know, but she thought it was funny that I was actually encouraging her to pick it.

Here is the picture run down...
1- waiting for the bus (The 1st time Paiton and I road public transportation, pathetic I know)
5- Paiter was tuckered out by the time we finished with the aquarium, Like OUT COLD!!!
6- 7 The bean-I don't know the real name, but we called it "the jelly bean"
9-10 A really cool fountain right by "the bean". Different faces would appear, then after a while, they would pucker up, then spit out water. The kids LOOOOVED it!!!
11-13 The sears tower-the kids loved climbing on the rails and playing with the gift shop toys:)
14-15 The Hershey's chocolate factory. They loved wearing their hats and acting like workers. Paiter started looking for Charlie and Willy Wonka.

He put it in the shower. What a crazy bunny!!!!
Earlier in day, the bunny dropped off a goody basket at our neighbors house while we were downstairs eating dinner. What a nice bunny!!
Paiton made a nest out of spaghetti and craft paint. It was really fun for her to squish the spaghetti noodles in the paint. After a while she didn't want to make a nest, she just wanted to play with the noodles. It was really difficult to keep her from eating it since "noodles" are her favorite food.
