Good v. Bad

The other night Reese and I were talking about being an example, especially in Church. (Now's a good time for her and Ash to see this in action because Josie is such a little copycat lately.) So I said to Reese, "you're always an example. It's up to you to choose if you're a good example or a bad example."
She said, "ya. Like a good example would sit quietly in church and a bad example would talk loudly, run up to the microphone and start doing hip-hop."

A Fave and a Babe

Here are two miscellaneous pics I wanted to share.
My Favorite store right now has to be Tai Pan Trading Company. Although their website isn't real functional...the store is amazing. Everytime I go to Utah I make a special trip so I can get the cutest ever things for my house. There have been a few times I've entered the store and panicked because I was afraid I would never get to see everything. It's a good thing there's not a Tai Pan nearby or my house would be bursting at the seams with their totally cute decor. I ADORED this snowman sign and so I bought it to add to the cute seasonal change-out hanging arm I also bought from there.

And this is my babe Josie enjoying the American Girl Doll stuff Reese recieved for Christmas. Reese's bedroom is Josie's favorite room in the house. If the door is left open she makes a beeline straight to it. (Much to Reese's dislike.) Reese was at school so I let Josie take her tea in there.

Finally some pictures

Here are some Christmas Morning pictures. Santa was brilliant and brought Ashlynn and Reese American Girl dolls. Ash and Reese are just different enough in personalities and far enough in age to think they have nothing in common. But these dolls have inspired so much playtime together. It's been great.'s so fun to do the dolls' hair...there's no wiggling and crying when I try to get out tangles.

And not to be left out - Josie got a doll of her own that's the same size/style as the AG dolls. But I think Josie has used Reese's doll sized tea table & chairs as well as climbed on Ashlynn's doll bed more than she's played with the doll itself.

And here are some pics from New Years Eve. After an evening of playing games like Lips, Call of Duty, Killer Rabbits, and Would You Rather we rang in the new year with sparklers and confetti. These pictures are of Reese and her cousin Tyler.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is looking forward to a better/happier and more loving New Year :)
