Halloween was last night! Aurelia loves her candy. At one point, she stormed a retaining wall (instead of taking the more convenient stairs) to get to her treats. At another point, she took to shaking door handles and screaming "treat! i want my candy." So, yes, we''re very proud of the manners we''ve obviously neglected to instill . . .
We''re getting ready for AV''s birthday! The big 4!
I''ve been getting questions about gifts. For holiday & Bday gifts, please keep in mind that we live in 1800 sq ft. :) Aurelia is very "into" dogs, the Princess & the Frog and I Can Read books on CD.
Also, were getting ready for (hopefully) adding No. 2 to our family this year. We''re going through all our toys to make sure that our toys reflect how our family will look (that is, half the girls in the house are white & half are black). We''re currently donating toys that don''t reflect our family. A good rule of thumb: if there is a scene/toy with multiple figures and none of them are black, there''s virtually no chance that we''ll keep the toy/puzzle, etc. :)
