The week before Halloween we went to Chick-fil-a to see one of Jack's favorite friends, Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  Jack loved watching his show.   So naturally I thought it would be fun to take Jack to see him.  Wrong!  Jack was so freaked out that he wouldn't get anywhere near Jake.  Being the good mom I am, I told Jack he was going to take a picture with him because darn it, I didn't waste my time for nothing.  Here you see Jack clawing at me like a wet cat trying to get away from him.  I don't blame Jack, though, because this costume was pretty creepy.  Since then, Jack doesn't like Jake and the Neverland Pirates anymore.  But he has decided that he likes Captain Jake, which is basically
 a modified version of the character.  Go figure.  Three year olds.

Arden was all about taking pictures, though, and here she is giving Jake a big bear hug.  
It was bonus that Rapunzel was there, too!
And of course the Chick-fil-a cow was there.  He made me dance with him in the restaurant!  The kids thought this was hilarious.  The cow even dipped me at the end.  Cow-tipping?

Girls are cool

Arden, "When I grow up I'm going to listen to my girls.  If they ask me if they can go to the park I'll say yes because playing at the park is good for you."
Me, "What if you have boys?"
She looks at me like I have two heads and like that never crossed her mind. "I'm not having booooyyyyys!," she says with disgust."
Me, "How do you know that?  You could have nothing but boys."
"No way, children boys are craaaazy. They are nuts.  Girls are cool."
Me, "well you're a girl and you're crazy."
Arden, "Well that's because I'm special."

No confidence issues here, folks.

This is what October looks like in Houston

She is ready for school.  Decked out in a furry jacket and shorts.  I would say she's dressed appropriately. 

First Days

I haven't blogged much lately, mainly because my computer is broken.  I am attempting to start blogging from the app.  The app used to stink but they've made some updates that I hope make it easier.  Anyway....  These pictures of my girls on their first day of school are long overdue.  

This is why the 3 1/2 year old stays in trouble most days

"Jack, it's time for your nap."
"But I don't want to.  Watching TV is my FAVORITE!"
"Too bad, you still need to take a nap."
"Taking naps is too hard.  And taking naps make me sick."
"You don't seem sick to me."
He then proceeds to cough.  "See!"
"Are you lying? You know you'll be in trouble for lying."
"No ma'am.  Arden is.  Arden is lying" (he blames everything on Arden)
"Arden's not even here, she's at school."
I then give him my stern mean mom look, now he knows he's really in trouble.
He nervously laughs and tries to soften me with, "Mommy, you're funny.  You're hilarious."
