Pledge and Peer Pressure

I totally tried to do something fun Monday through Wednesday last week... So here it is... this is the most exciting thing. And really it is pretty exciting. At least we were excited!! Emma said the Pledge of Allegiance on 101.1 KLRC on Tuesday morning at 6:15, 7:15, and 8:15. And by the flurry of calls that I got at 6:18, 7:18 and 8:18, I know that there were at least three sets of grandparents and some aunts and cousins that were pretty excited too. :)
Emma was not so impressed. She was just mad that I muted Blues Clues so I could listen to it. Also, I am pretty sure that it is illegal to video the radio and drive at the same time so pretend I didn't do that. Dad, it was totally a back road so don't freak!! ;)

And then on Wednesday, I found out that Aiden is a little obsessive compulsive with his hair. I had been noticing that he was carrying brushes and combs around, but I really had no idea the magnitude of the issue until I witnessed this...

And this...

Friday night we were supposed to go to a birthday party, but Emma had a low grade fever so we just hung out at home and watched Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses. I learned then, that Aiden really needs preschool assertiveness training, because Emma can completely manipulate talk Aiden into doing just about anything. Over the course of the weekend they watched the 12 Dancing Princesses at least 12 times and Barbie and the Three Musketeers at least 3 times,  they had a Barbie Beauty Shop for about 4 hours on Saturday, on Sunday she talked him into (Dad, cover your ears) eating a booger and licking her shoe! And this morning, she had him dressed in a purple Ariel night gown, matching Ariel panties and an also matching purple bow. (I do applaud her for her matching abilities!) Crazy girl! I don't know what to think of her sometimes! :) But I am mostly just thankful that she is a healthy, spirited, little girl with lots of spunk that she loves to share, I guess!
Saturday we went to the Razorback game. Dude, just because you have ESPN on your phone doesn't mean you have to check it all during the game. Yeah, yeah, we all know you have an iphone, rub it in a little whydontcha? Jealousy, we've got an app for that! :) Just kidding, honey! You know I love my antique phone. 
Chas went to the game too. We love our Chas and Emma and Aiden especially loved having her there too!
And here is a little sneak peak of part of our Christmas card this year...
Christmas is approaching fast and we are excited!!! :)
