Brionna put her new tutu on immediately!!!

I took Brionna one of her new tutu's over to her house and she put it on immediately, I think they are soooooooo cute and fun! She had just gotten out of the bathtub, she has her robe on under her tutu!

More tutu-------OK, I'm hooked on something else!

The finished product
Work in progress, it's easier to loop the elastic around a chair, then loop the tulle around the elastic.
The cut tulle, Brayden and I figured out a way to cut it much faster than one piece at a time---he's really good at teamwork.

Brionna's TuTu

Yes----she really is a Super Hero at night----saving the world!

Emily's sister Poppi taught us how to make tutus today, it was fun and Brionna LOVES hers. I went back to JoAnn and bought the tulle to make some more, I think I'll make matching tutus for Marygrace and Brionna--------------and have their picture taken! I love them, Brionna loved hers, everyone loved them!

We both think this one is better, she's practicing!

This post is for Elston, Vaughn and Linden, Brionna wants you to take her to a real ball game, She also wants Jake and Mikala to go. Here's another song for you boys.

Calling Santa

Brionna has the biggest imagination! She has invisible friends, invisible monsters (nice ones) and she now has an invisible Santa. Emily and Randy gave her this phone to play with and she decided she wanted to tell Santa what she wants for Christmas. I love her imagination! (ignore the boxes in the background, I'm reorganizing stuff)

This song is for the Miller boys! Brionna is learning to sing this song, she'll have it down by in the morning but she wanted to sing for her cousins!

Joe the Dog and Precious Brionna

My friend Mother Goose has a large dog -------like Joe, here. Joe belongs to our good friend, La, (yes that is our dogs name, we named him after our friend La) La (friend La, not dog La) was looking at my car because my oil light was coming on, right after getting my oil changed. Brionna and I waited in his waiting room and Joe kept us entertained. I'm a little frightened of dogs, especially large dogs, well, some small dogs frighten me also but Joe feel in love with Brionna and Brionna fell in love with Joe. Mother Goose told us the funniest story about her dog taking off after a "Victoria's Secret" pink tongued puppy dog----check out her website, it's the greatest!!!

Brayden in the Hospital

Brayden was sick and in a lot of pain the last part of this week, he had to be admitted to the hospital on Saturday morning. I took several pictures but most of them make me sad but the one picture I'm going to post is a picture I took while he was sleeping, when he woke up he thought he was dreaming about clowns!

Have you had your sunshine fix for the day???

Brionna and I had to walk a very long way today today in Lubbock at the soccer fields, the weather was just crummy---wet, wet and more wet and gray skies. (did I say wet?) We were soaked to the bone before they blew the "weather" horn and went around in little golf carts ordering everyone off the fields due to lightening. While we were walking around the soccer fields she started singing her famous Sunshine song.
