We are having a little problem lately in our house. Abby's mouth. It's got the sass in it. I think it's a toddler thing but, wow...it's starting to hurt my feelings. I got kicked yesterday. Out of anger. In the shin. It hurt. Today I wasn't allowed to sing along with Ariel in the car. I swear at lunch today she said, "whatever" to me. This is a phase right?

I had dinner tonight out with some girlfriends to celebrate birthdays, what is it about girls night out that is just so awesomefantasticrejuvenating? Even though we were all tired by 10 and so full we could barely move I feel like I've reconnected with my non-mommy self again, and I needed that. Being a mom is awesome but sometimes I wonder what happened to that girl who went out and danced till 4 am every weekend, is she still in here somewhere? Gosh I miss dancing, the only dancing I seem to do lately is to the Beauty and Beast soundtrack (and I have to be the Beast). Here are some photos from Abby and her dinner of champions, mac n cheese, dinosaur nuggets, and corn.

I'm so excited for Christmas, I love it-it's got to be my favourite time of year. My problem is I always have way to high expectations of how it's going to go. I need to lower them a bit I think. We are having it at our house this year and I can't wait to see Abby open gifts this year, she is so much older than last year (a whole year imagine that lol). Today we started celebrating by decorating gingerbread men or muffin men as Abby calls them, she watches too much Shrek.

Abby went to the Nature Center today, but it was closed because the power is STILL out after the big storm. We "walked" around the nature (Abby whined and complained) and then walked down to the mansion. We found a bush with butterflies all over it, it was beautiful!

Abby is very into wearing "a pretty dress' right now. I have to admit I am loving it because she has so many pretty dresses (thank you Nana) and they just look so comfy to wear in this awful heat. Now if only I can get her to smile in photos once in a while...

Today we didn't melt. Abby and I were so happy to be outside, we had a wonderful trip to the playground where someone's grandma made her a balloon animal. Then we came home, had lunch and took a wonderul 2 hour nap. No meltdowns happened today. I think she must have run out from yesterday which was, even in Abby terms, a field trip through a mental asylum. After days like that I just end up feeling shell shocked, like I have post traumatic stress syndrome or something. We went to Target tonight which makes Abby and I very happy, I love that store so. I got Abby a Jessie doll from Toy Story (one of her favourite new movies) and she loves her so much, she fell asleep holding her tonight. I love that she is getting to that age of really loving toys and pretending with them, but I'm also sad because her baby-ness is definetly being replaced by little girl-ness. My gosh time flies by...

Today was full of cake and cake and more cake. We went to the birthday celebration for our friend's twins Isa and Mia. They are so adorable and teeny, Abby was quite happy to play with and pretend to be a baby among the others. I think Abby ate her weight in cake at the party, somehow she just kept on managing to snag some more. Luckily there were no re-appearances by the cake later on. Here are some photos of our fun day...
