our kitties

We got cats for Christmas and we are so so happy. We were asking and asking and asking and asking for a pet and we were so surprised when Mom and Daddy said we could get one!

This is Shadow. She is tiny and black. She likes to get in trouble by climbing on the curtains and likes to pounce on things, like a puma. Her favorite things are playing with balls and snuggling with us.

This is Sadie. She is brown and black and white. She is a snuggle bug and has the loudest purr ever! (She is sitting in Ellie's lap.)

They really like the Christmas tree and keep patting the ornaments with their paws. They didn't knock it down, though. Colin did that with a baseball bat. Mom was not very happy and he got in trouble.

We LOOOOOOOVE having our kitties!!

charlotte's web play

On Saturday we went to another play. We love plays. You should go to plays because they are so fun to watch and so much better than a movie.

We saw Charlotte's Web. It is such a good book - we read it with Mommy and Daddy over the summer. We love animals and Charlotte and Wilber are our favorites. Templeton is a little mean in the book, but in the play he was really silly. Once he came running in from behind our seats and we JUMPED we were so surprised!!

We won a blue ribbon before the play started by playing games.

We got our hands painted and got tattoos and ate popcorn and made crafts.

The play was so so so good. Wilber was really funny when he ate and made a mess. Our favorite part was when he won the metal at the fair and when Avery broke the stinky egg. It even smelled like a barn in the theater! (Not like stinky animals, but like wood and hay.)

We got to meet Charlotte too!

We really love this play and think that everyone should go see it too, because it is really good and funny.

disclosure: ellie and grace attended this play with their mom, who received tickets to this show from the arden theatre. we were not compensated for this post. as always, all opinions are our own.

i love little miss muffin

Mommy gave me a Little Miss Muffin and she is so super cute. She is huggy and fun and I like making her into a muffin and back into a doll.
This is me and Little Miss Vanilla. She smells like cookies and she helps me bake with Mommy. Her hair is so cute and curly and I love her!!

disclosure: mommy received this toy for a review on her blog, girlymama, but all opinions are mine.

NYC with Mommy

On Friday, I got to miss school and go to New York City to meet MO WILLEMS! I LOVE MO WILLEMS! He writes the best, funniest books. My favorite is Knuffle Bunny, but Elephant and Piggie and the Pigeon are my favorites too. I even have a Knuffle Bunny toy that I bought with my allowance.
First when we got off the train, we took a taxi to the American Girl Store so I could spend the gift cards I got for my birthday. That was SO FUN. I got the ballet outfit and the movie dress for my Ruthie. I was really excited! I changed Ruthie into her new dress while we took another taxi to meet Mo so she would look extra pretty.

Then we went to a restaurant and had cupcakes while we waited for Mo to arrive. I played with the Pigeon App on the iPad - it was really neat. I learned how to draw a pigeon and it is so easy. I'm such a great pigeon drawer now, see?

I got to meet Mo, who was so funny and nice. We took a picture and we were monsters.
Mo even signed a book for me! And he signed a book for my kindergarten teacher because she loves Mo Willems even more than me. She has an Elephant and Piggie tshirt!!
After that, we went to Times Square, which is my favorite place in New York, except for the American Girl Store.
Its really busy and you have to hold someone's hand so you don't get lost. We got a Starbucks (yummmmmm) and then we went to the big Toys R Us and they had a whole Barbie room! SO cool!!!

It was such a super fun day. I can't wait to go back to New York again. I want to move there and ride in taxis every day!!

disclosure: we attended this event as guests of Disney Digital Books and were provided with transportation and a gift bag. As always, all opinions are grace's, as told to mommy.

pumpkin patch

We went to the pumpkin patch with church. It was fun. We liked the gourds - they look like swans!

We ate apple cider donuts and had apple cider slushies (which are AWESOME) and had so much fun.
We didn't get to go on the hayride, because we were late, but we still got lots of hay everywhere!

These are my friends. We had so much fun bouncing - I'm really good at twirling.

Uncle Billy made balloon animals. All the boys got swords.

Mommy and I made a RAINBOW CAKE! And we had sundaes too.

It was awesome! I loved my blue and white birthday party!!

We liked the dinosaurs best.
("AHHH!!! HE'S GOT US!!!")

And the butterflies. We saw one butterfly with a broken wing.

It was really really fun.

face painting

Today we got our faces painted at a Disney party! Don't we look super cool????

Gracie: I was a butterfly princess! I had a crown with a jewel (The jewel fell off. It was green.) and a rainbow on my arm!

Ellie: I was a rainbow tiger - and I had a tiger CLAW on my arm! RAWRRRRR!!!!

we went to williamsburg

This weekend we went to Williamsburg. It is in Virginia - it was a long car ride away but it was really fun.
Gracie really liked Colonial Williamsburg. "I bought two bonnets and loved playing the stick and hoop game."
Gracie also really loved getting to hold the new baby chick at Yorktown's farm. "He was really really soft and made teeny tiny chirping noises, which was so so cute."
Ellie's favorite part was the Powhaton Indian Village at Jamestown. "We studied the Eastern Woodlands Indians in school this year, so seeing a real village was so cool. I even got to play the game where you throw corn arrows through a hoop that we read about in school."

We also went to Water Country USA and Busch Gardens. We really liked Busch Gardens - it was really really fun. The rides were so cool and we really loved seeing the animals. Ellie really likes wolves, so seeing the wolf show was neat.  The roller coaster was great - see how much we liked it? We're SCREAMMMMING!

Roller coasters are so fun because you get to scream AS LOUD AS YOU CAN. We're good at screaming!!!

We had such a fun time in Williamsburg and we can't wait to go back!!

On Sunday we got to go to see the Smurf Movie. And Katy Perry was there! She sings our favorite song. Its called Firework.

We saw her walk in the theater, and we waved at her. She was really pretty.

After the movie, we went to the bathroom and when we came out, Katy Perry was there! Mommy took our picture:
Katy was really really nice to us! I told her I really liked her Smurfette dress and she said she liked our dresses too!! She was Smurfette in the movie and she was so funny. Smurfette is our favorite Smurf because she is a girl and has long hair and is funny. We really liked the movie and had so much fun going to New York City!
Our favorite part was when the reporter asked us questions and we got to be on tv!


disclosure from our mom: we got tickets to the movie from suave kids. we were sent suave kids products and they sent us to the movie.

trip to the farm

We went to a farm with our mom that makes Horizon Milk. Our grandma came too. It was really hot and there were lots of flies. So we drank lots of milk and water. But we really likes seeing the cows and animals. We saw cows, ducks, chickens, a cat, and a dog. There was a little baby cow who was so little that he had to eat out of a baby bottle!
Farmer Barry said that the cow was so new that he didn't like people very much and was afraid of them. But he let us pet him. We think that he liked us.
The girl in the pink is our friend Becca. She is super nice and fun to play with. We like to go to her house and ride bikes together.

We had lots of fun and we want to go back to the farm someday!

disclosure: our mom was provided with a gift card to cover gas and tolls, as well as lunch on the farm for our. as always, all opinions are my ours.

fashion friday with grace

I really like the Sharpay Collection at Target. I want Mom to buy me this sparkely shirt. I like it because it is from the new movie Sharpay and I really like High School Musical.
I also really like the new GapKids. Mom showed it to me and it is so cute. I love the skirt with ruffles. It looks like frosting on a cupcake. I love the ruffles because I really love ruffles. I like the ruffles going up and down. I don't have a ruffles skirt that does that.

I picked out this skirt at Old Navy when I went there to get flip-flops. I really like it and I wear it all the time. I think I will wear it tomorrow. I wear a white shirt and my silver flip-flops with it. It looks like its from India. And its twirly.

ocean city

Last week we went to Ocean City for family vacation.

We got hermit crabs! Mine is named July because it has an American flag shell. Gracie's is named Pearl. Colin's is named Crabby.

We found little crabs on the beach. We held one.
(This is Grace holding the crab.)
It was so cool.
This crab did not pinch and it tickled. The other crab we found kept pinching Daddy's thumb. He did not like that.
The pinchy crab kept trying to bury itself in the sand to hide.

we love roller coasters

We went to Dorney Park with our family. We love to ride the roller coaster. It isn't very scary because its for kids. But its is still really fun.

This is the movie our dad took. Be careful. You might get sick!
(Gracie: Ellie is just kidding. You won't get sick.)
(Ellie: You might!!!)
