Interview With a Four Year Old

On Mother's Day Isabelle's Primary teacher asked the kids questions about their moms to go with a picture they made. It was my favorite Mother's Day gift ever! I just love the hilarious things Isabelle says each day. She's so clever and witty. I really loved the answers she gave for this.

My mom is 20 years old. (Thank you Isabelle! This got crossed off when I happened to walk by in
the hall and Isabelle asked me "how old are you again Mom?" I should've stuck with 20.)
My mom's favorite thing to do is snuggle.
My mom's favorite movie is Toy Story.
My mom has green eyes. (Yep.)
My mom weighs 1460 lbs. (Feels like it some days!)
My mom's birthday is on spring.
My mom's favorite food is chicken and rice. (Actually her favorite.)
My mom's favorite treat is peanuts. (Wonder if she was thinking about cashews.)
My mom likes to help me write.
My mom is happy when I don't break stuff.
My Mom is the best at cooking.

A couple of days earlier James and I asked Isabelle some fun questions while we were driving. I'm quoting exactly what her answers were.

These are her favorites.
Colors: purple, pink, and red
Day: warm, when we can go swimming at Margo's
Games to play: horses and at Margo's with friends
Food: rice and chicken and except of course I love hot dogs! Booya!
Vacation: Disneyland
Restaurant: Red Robin
Book: my horse book with the necklace
Thing to do with Daddy: snuggle
Thing to do with Mommy: have a date
Part of preschool: playtime; I get to have recess when I'm big!
When she grows up she wants to be a horse rider.
Her best friends are B-Relle and Ike and Sarah and Mom
She wants to get married "where Mommy and Daddy did and have 5 kids. No actually six and then seven kids!" 

Isabelle is such a funny little girl and such a blessing! She says the darndest things! She finished her first year of preschool last week. I can't believe she's that big already. It's so much fun to watch her learn and grow- she's changed so much since the first of the school year! I wish I could slow the time down and keep her my baby, but as she always tells me, "you have to turn different numbers Mom!"

My Lover Boy

My man and I celebrated our 8 year anniversary on the 22nd! We went out to our favorite restaurant (PF Chang's) and shopping at Trolley Square the day after.

I can't believe how quickly it's gone by! It seems like just yesterday we were just 19 and 21 year old kids in love. Now we're just 27 and 29 year old kids in love! I am SO in love with James. He is the greatest and makes the girls and me so happy. He is very patient with three hormonal girls (and that's only going to get worse as the girls get older of course!) He is such an awesome husband and daddy. His girls just love him to pieces and are always so happy to see him. I love chatting and laughing with him! James loves to spend time with us and always tries to make special time for each one of us. He always tries to make me happy. I love my man! He gets better and better every year! So glad we got hitched!

Isabelle took this picture of us at Temple Square! Love the little head poking up in the corner!
