Yo Gabba Gabba, Hives, Cookies, Princess Camp & Miss Tessa's Hair

My kids are addicted to TV. Seriously. This has become a blessing and a curse. I love that I have a free babysitter, but I hate that the TV has to be on ALL THE TIME! They fight over which show to watch, who gets to choose, and where they get to sit on the couch. Some TV shows are great. They learn about colors, numbers, animals, sharing, cleaning up, and about a million little songs that they love. (I'm talking about Barney, Mickey Mouse Club House, Dora and Diego, Blue's Clues and Dragon Tales.) But, there is one show that I hate. REALLY! Yo Gabba Gabba. YUCK! Well, they love it. Look at them shaking their little booties.

Jordyn had another run of bad luck in the health department. I have no idea what happened, some internal virus the doctor said. My poor baby was covered in itchy hives from head to toe. This picture hardly shows what it was really like. She was miserable.Tessa is messy. Especially with food. What more can I say?Jordyn went to Princess Camp at Dance Showcase Company. She was so excited. She asked everyday for weeks how many more days. She was sick the day before...again. I was worried she wouldn't be able to go, but she did. She had so much fun. She is our Dancing Queen!

Oh, this kid. Look at that face. "Oh, Mom...put the camera away." You can't see it well, but Tessa has the best little twisty braid thing in her hair. Jordyn cries just looking at a brush. Tessa is tough. She'll sit in a chair and let me pull, yank, and tug her beautiful, thick hair until I think it's perfect. She can be a monster sometimes....WHO AM I KIDDING?!?! She is a little monster most of the time, but I sure love her and she is stinking cute.

Poor Jordyn!! Me and Jordyn should've hung out. I had a HORRID hives outbreak from an anti biotic a couple weeks ago. We could've been miserable together. Hope she's feeling better!

I can't believe all the hard things Jordyn's had to go through this year! Poor girl! Tessa's hair looks fantastic--I've tried twists like that on Ryann and I obviously need practice.
