Funny things from Evelyn

  • Evelyn refers to Max as Maxton at all times.  She sounds just like I imagine my grandmother Nana would have when fussing at him about things.
  • The kids have worked out that Max was born first because 'I was in the top of your tummy and Max was in the bottom, so he was closer to your pagina.'  I almost wrecked the car when that came out of Evelyn's mouth.
  • Wherever Evelyn hears music, she dances.  In the car and at church, she'll say 'Mommy, my feets are dancing' in this very quiet, serious voice, and her whole body is still but her feet are going as if they have a mind of their own.
  • She names everything - dolls, puppies we see on the street, stuffed animals, imaginary friends, and everything else - Princess.  
  • When Evelyn is mad, she works hard to insult the target of her anger.  She purses her lips, furrows her brow, and you can just see her digging deep to find just the right word.  She pronounces 'you're a BABY' with such disgust and disdain that it is hard not to giggle.  She's also pretty good at revoking your invitation to her birthday party for serious offenses.
  • She loves to get one last hug-y and kiss-y before bed.  She's very good at keeping her word if you make her promise she will sleep after one last hug/kiss/water.

Flight plan

We had lunch at daddy's office to celebrate the end of summer. Folks were amazed by the detailed accuracy of Max's flight suit!

Princess party

We watched princess movies, popped popcorn and made tiaras to celebrate our girls night. Such fun!

Great brother

This guy did a great job letting sister have the spotlight with zero complaints all weekend. He's a thoughtful guy and we are so proud of him!

Pink cake with pink icing and cherries

Evelyn knew exactly what kind of cake she wanted and was thrilled with how it turned out!

Oh happy day

Evelyn was a delightful birthday girl. She wore her watch so she'd know what time it is (my favorite was September o'clock) and was filled with joy at every aspect of her special day. We love this girl so much!

Party Time!

Evelyn had the perfect 'pink princess bounce house' birthday party.  She loved having Kate, Kellan, Gabe, Pierce, Baby Max, Ruby and June to play.  It was a wonderful celebration of our spunky, sweet, silly and smart little girl!
