Big Changes for this 5 Year Old

This little sassy pants melts my heart, and drives me to insanity everyday. I wonder everyday if she is 5 or 15. She has attitude, she loves music (Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Selena Gomez to name a few...), Good Luck Charlie on the Disney Channel and singing and dancing. I came into my room today to her blasting Selena Gomez on the Ipod and dancing and singing in front of the mirror herself.

On Mother's Day they made books in school for us.

Sienna's reasons she loves me:

Because I let her wear her bikini (heaven help me, she has one and LOVES it)

Because I taught her to make her bed

and Because I let her wear different earrings everyday to match her outfit.

I just had to laugh!

Oh but I love her. She really is just me reincarnated. We have the same exact personality but she is much smarter than I ever was. That's for sure. Always asking the deepest questions and I don't even know the answers.

She is finishing up her second year of school before she heads off the kindergarten. (*tear*) 1/2 tears of happiness, 1/2 of sadness.) Her dance recital is coming up that she is VERY excited for with 2 of her favorite friends. I can't wait for her to start this next stage in her life, but it still breaks my heart that she is growing up!

Easter 2011

It's official. I suck at blogging! Oh well. Things have been crazy around here! I can only imagine when I have a few kids toting around to their activities. Oh well- the joys of life! Easter was fun this year! We didn't have any family in town so we made our own activities with friends! (Well and my cousin's kids so that's as close as we get to family around here!) We had an easter egg hunt with a bunch of families in our ward. We went to lunch at Firehouse Subs with some friends and then came home and dyed easter eggs! I personally think that is such a dumb tradition but my kids love it! Actually Austin fell asleep on the way home from lunch and woke up as all his friends were leaving from coloring the eggs. He was SO mad, so we had to get out more dye and I let him dye some we had already done in other colors. He didn't know any different though so who cares! haha! Sunday we went to church and then just hung out as a family and enjoyed each others company. The kids were NOT cooperating for my Sunday pics but oh well! It's there true personalities! It was a fun weekend!

Austin and Carson being SUPERMAN!!

After posting this, I remember why I hardly blog! It takes too long!! Maybe if I did smaller posts!
