People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

More Reganisms

Regan calls older women grandmas and yesterday was no exception. We were at the park and an older lady was there with her grankids. Regan goes up to her and shows her the sticks she had been collecting and calling her grandma. She got stuck on the ladder and was calling out "Help grandma-friend". I went over to her and said that I could help her, but she adamantly stated that she wanted grandma-friend to help her, which is what she does when her real grandmas are around anyway. Bless that old ladies heart, she was as nice as could be to her. Today I was talking to Regan about praying when we need help and she reminded me that she was stuck on the bars and was calling to grandma-friend to help her.
For the last month or so, when Regan has been sad and can't find me she'll say, "I want mama de Kristo (mama the Kristal)." "I was looking for you mama de Kristo". What the!?!?! Cracks me up everytime!!

Fun with Cousins

The girls and I got to spend some time with family last week and they had so much fun playing with their cousins. Sophie would spend all day in the swing if I let her.

Regan likes to swing but she LOVES going down slides. Yesterday I asked her a question and she said, "Cause I'm a lady, that's why." What the.... where did she get that from? I got a good chuckle out of it.

Brinley kept asking me to push her higher, "up to the sky!!"

Carson is a good lookin' kid and loved playing with Regan and Sophie.

Sophie didn't want to come inside with everyone else, so I left her and went to the bathroom. This was how I found her when I went back outside. Kelly N.....these pictures are for you. This happened the same day we were talking about random places kids fall asleep!

Sweet little Dopher. At 18 months she is just barely starting to grow out of 6-9mo pants into 12mo pants. I call her my little short stack. She may be tiny but she is LOADED with personality. Great things come in small packages!

Anderson Family Pumpkin Party

My cute little bumble bee. I love the little stinger on the back. Thanks Bailey's for the costume.
Janie as a cute lady bug.
Regan was a witch with a skirt that I made her. She didn't want to wear the wig or hat though, so she is just a cute apprentice witch.
Sophie decided she wanted to wear the witch hat.
Then she got tired of hats altogether.

I got an A!!!

Well, technically Jason got an A on this project he did, but I did most of it. Jason needed help getting his work done on time so I made a little flip album and he finished it with a wood cover. When they turned in the projects his teacher picked Jason's out and said he had never seen anything like it and it was impressively cool. He got the highest grade in the hooray for me...if I was in the program I'd be doin' pretty good!! The funny thing is, his classmates knew that I had made it and were probably sitting there silently cursing Jason and his amazing wife while his teacher raved about it.....hahahahahahahah!!!
