I would be such a good only child :0 hahah Dan!

You Are Likely an Only Child

At your darkest moments, you feel frustrated.

At work and school, you do best when you're organizing.

When you love someone, you tend to worry about them.

In friendship, you are emotional and sympathetic.

Your ideal careers are: radio announcer, finance, teaching, ministry, and management.

You will leave your mark on the world with organizational leadership, maybe as the author of self-help books.

Alexa wants a mini-van something fierce. Today on the way home from school she tells me "Mommy, when I have kids and they want a mini-van, I'm going to get them one."

I'm a bad mommy!

One More Day Until Twilight!

I'm a Esme! I found out through Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!

You are thoughtful and care very deeply for your family. A loving home is of great
importance to you and you always try to make people feel welcome. Although you have a great capacity to love, you also have a great capacity to hurt, so at times you can be
sensitive. You're firm when you need to be, but people trust your judgment and
appreciate the kind way you always handle things.

super diva

I love this kid so much. She seriously has confidence oozing out of her pores.

Uncle Dan

Uncle Dan has recently taken up Yoga....Check out his blog and be prepared to make fun of him when he arrives for Christmas break. :) HAHAHHAHAHAHA

Actually, next week for turkey day, we'll be heading to Blacksburg to take over Uncle Dan's house. :)
My brother and I are going to take power yoga at his gym on Friday evening. I know we're going to die laughing!

Graffiti Artist

Last weekend, I hung up the first set of Dolche sight words across the chair rail in lex's room. Well, Lex wanted to remind me multiple times that "Alexa is 5" repeatedly across her sight words. Note to self: lex recognizes the word "is".

History in the making!

Today, Lex came with me as I voted for our next president of the United States...a day of history in the making. She was so excited to come and when we were standing on online today she asked me, "we want Obama, right?" I giggled and told her yes, while the people around me laughed and joked that she was a little campaigner. When we finally got to the cafeteria where we would vote, Lex looked around and asked me with big eyes, "is he here?" I asked her: who? and she says "george washington". (yesterday, she had a class trip to Mt. Vernon!) when I explained that george was our president a long time ago, she back tracked and said, No mommy, I meant Obama! What an exciting night tonight has been!

3rd Annual Satterpellaton Trip to Cox Farms

Cox Farms holds a special place in mine and Bran's heart because it was our "first" real family outing three years ago. After that visit, I think Bran and I realized that we were in our relationship for the long haul.

This year, Miss Beth and Poppa Bear were here for the weekend and were able to experience the wonder that is "cox farms" this year. It was a HOT day this year!!!! I remember freezing three years ago and last year I had on hoodie!

Everyone had a great time on the slides, especially Poppa Bear :) The highlight of lex's visit was seeing andrew right before we were getting ready to leave!

Another Tooth!

Lex's second tooth came out last week! It was hanging like a snaggle tooth and Bran tried to convince her to tie a string to it and tie it to a door. Lex had a light bulb moment and decided to do things her way and use floss to get it out. She was scared that it would get lost so I had to hold out my hands to catch it :)

Dance Party

Lex has loved music and has loved dancing from the time she was in utero! At least once a week, we have a "dance party" where she gets to pick her songs and we dance for at least 30 minutes. This week's dance party mix included:
Burnin' Up by the Jonas Brothers
My Humps-Black Eyed Peas
Candy Man-Christina Aguilera
Barbara Ann-Beach Boys
Lex knows words to SO many songs. She's also so musical in that she will make up songs on a whim based on what we're doing complete with a beat.
