I finally found the perfect leggings for us!


Sassy school outfit for day two. 


This is how she dressed to go out for dinner. 

I missed taking a photo of her clothes—she put a ballerina tutu and leg warmers on over her clothes. And she’s into mismatched socks now. 


The cuteness. The pose. 


Surprise playground and dirty knees!

When there’s a playground around the corner from a Facebook yard sale pickup that you didn’t know about, you have to stop.

Of course, Katie is dressed in brand new light-colored clothes for school later. It took under two minutes for her to fall and get both knees dirty (like seriously 30 seconds after this photo).


Look at this outfit she picked out!

And her sassy new boots!

Owen’s second Good Character Award this year!

From his teacher’s email:

I wanted to let you know that Owen is going to receive the good character award again this week at morning program. The character trait of the month is honesty and trustworthiness and Owen is one of the most honest and trustworthy kids I know!

Little sister looking all sassy in her outfit while we wait for the program to start:

She wrote the J on her own and then I suggested she do an E—which she also did on her own but needs a tiny bit of practice—and then I helped with the N. And then she did the K all by herself—which I was very proud of because she normally messes up the top diagonal line. :)

Can you find Owen? He is literally a half a head taller than all the kids in his grade.

He had no idea that he was going to get the award.

The noise the kids made when Owen’s name was called was the most enthusiastic. It’s customary to repeat the recipient’s name after it’s announced, but Owen’s was the loudest of the bunch. When we told him that later he was embarrassed and said no it wasn’t. We have the video to prove it was pretty loud (below). :)

Warm weather = summer dress

This was her third outfit of the day but the most appropriate for school (I stepped in to facilitate). :)


I just can’t.



Miss Sassy Pants…or Skirt 

We are SO in trouble…


Back on schedule…off to ballet!

In a new outfit from Gramma Jean!

She may or may not be wearing her hand-me-down dance costume to school as well as ballet.


Hand-me-down Christmas outfit


Purple dress and purple boots!


Katie wore this today so I decided we should match.

Well, technically she just had on the shirt and leggings. I added the boots and cardigan which I knew she also had. :)


I almost forgot we had this shirt!


Costumed Katie

We went to visit friends down the street and Katie had to wear one of her generic princess costumes.


And then her friend had new costumes, so of course she had to try them on!



The boots again. 

This time to go to gymnastics. :)


Hedgehogs & Ladybugs

OMG I cannot stand the cuteness. I bought this dress from a friend and I just love it—and I didn’t realize until JUST now that it also has LADYBUGS on it!! And the ladybug is riding the hedgehog. It kills me.
