Let's Go To The Movies!!!

As we speak, Anna is at her FIRST EVER movie in a movie theater! She is seeing Lion King 3D with daddy. (What will the poor girl do when forced to see a regular movie?)

In a sweet Circle of Life type scenario, Curt first saw the movie in Kirksville, Missouri when he was at smart kids camp at age fourteen. Kirksville, as you know, is where he met his brilliant and beautiful wife 4 years later. Now Anna, who would not be here without that meeting, is nearly four and is watching it with him.

Isn't life grand?

Momma Maria's Tummy Hurts


I was having issues with youtube and a linked google account and my youtube account ("Why Maria, would that be THE ACCOUNT that held all of the videos attached to this blog?") was d.e.l.e.t.e.d.

So now ALL, each and every, every single video attached to this wonderful blog are now gone.

So..... I will begin working backwards to re-upload four years worth of videos from our computer. Thank you computer gods for honoring me with this character-building activity.
I love you.
So much.

Girlsplosion etc.

This is a follow up video of when the girls and I got back from Wisconsin and they saw their room for the first time.

Elizabeth had not yet been in her crib!

She was a fan!

I call it "GIRL-splosion"!

Here are pics of the girl's new room:

A big THANKS to Mimi for decorating it and to Daddy and Papa for shuffling it around!

The transition went beautifully! Miss Lilybeth decided to be accommodating (as always) and began waking up only once per night so my fears of trudging across the hall fast asleep all night were all for naught. I think the poor girl just needed more space. The co-sleeper was a little snug.


She's thinking, "I just KNOW I can get out of here, SOMEHOW!"

"Mom, SERIOUSLY, I can't even roll over in this thing!"

"Help mom, I'm stuck sideways!"

And yet at times.... the girl slept. And slept HARD:

I know you aren't EVER supposed to wake a sleeping baby but there is a big sister here in the mix!
