House of Loving

Casey has the best toys. This Despicable Me fart gun is going straight to the top of my birthday/Christmas wish list!

Things that make me happy

When you're five, the best thing about Valentine's Day is all the cookies and candy you gain access to.

21st-century communication

When Mommy was my age, she had to use the phone to talk to her aunts and uncles. Today there's Facetime, so I can hear AND see Aunt Laura and Uncle Heath when we talk.

A good read

The story of Jose and his brothers throwing pumpkin seeds off the side of a hill is one of my favorites.

All the world's a stage

This complex set design and extensive use of props made for a fun if not complicated narrative about how to open a retail store. In the driveway.

The Harlem Globetrotters

I'm not sure I'll ever be tall enough to play professional basketball like Lynette Woodard (she was at the game, too!), but one of the players told me spinning a basketball on my finger can be done no matter how tall I get.

At the car wash

My toy car was dirty, so I decided to wash it. In Mommy's bathroom sink. With the oh-so-pricey Aveda Shampure Hand & Body Wash. Boy, was it clean afterward!

The great gummy worm caper

My class took a field trip to Hurts Donuts today, where it was alleged that I licked a whole bunch of gummy worms and put them back in the bowl where they came from.

Dinner disaster

I like chicken, rice, broccoli and carrots. Serve them individually, and I'm fine. Mix them together with a tasty sauce, and I have a thermonuclear meltdown.

Half-day Helen

Monday is my favorite day of the week. I only have to go to school half a day and dad comes and saves me just before nap time.

No dentist required

Who can pull their own tooth out with their bare hands? This girl.

Totally bowled over

Brooklyn's birthday party was so much fun. I went bowling and just loved knocking down the pins.

Bedtime? What bedtime?

Do I look like a kid that's supposed to be winding down for bedtime?

Fashion forward

I'm taking eveningwear to a whole new level.

No pictures, please

Sometimes I like to see what happens when I try to cover Mommy's camera lens and dodge her picture-taking.

A Tale of Two Priests

Father Kerry and Father Frank had never met me before, so they made a special trip to Wichita and came over to our house for dinner.
