Cow Thomas

My brother Matt and his family had a new baby calf born this week. Magnolia is one lucky girl because she got to name the calf. Matt left a message on my phone for Magnolia to think up a name and she could name it. So, Magnolia hopped up on my bed and started thinking. I must tell you how seriously she took the whole thing. I should have taken a picture of her sitting there thinking. After a little bit I asked her if she knew what she wanted to name it. She looked up and said "COW THOMAS!" So we made it official by calling Matt back and telling him that he was a proud owner of Cow Thomas. We are hoping to go meet Cow Thomas this summer but for now we just sing some songs about him and look at his pictures.

Lets Go Fly A Kite

Magnolia LOVES LOVES LOVES the movie Mary Poppins. We watched it as a family the other night and we were singing along with the song "Lets Go Fly A Kite." Magnolia decided at that moment that she needed a kite. So, yesterday we went to a kite store in Boulder and let Magnolia pick out the kite that she wanted. She picked out a very beautiful rainbow one. Unfortunately when we got home there was no wind. So, today was the day. We were able to go fly the new kite! Magnolia was all smiles the entire time! I must admit, she had a longer attention span for kite flying than I did!

Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!

Ring Around The Rosie with pug

Magnolia and Ziggy can now do ring around the rosie without us! Pug even lays down at the end! What good friends they are!

Chuck E Cheese

Well... we did it... we took Magnolia to Chuck E Cheese. If you are reading this and have not been to Chuck E Cheese you should definitely put it on your bucket list. It is a place that I can not put into words, and you must experience for yourself! ;)
Magnolia had SO much fun and truly loved every minute that she was there. And really, whats not to love? Games, music, lights, food, people, lots of people... Ah so fun! When we got home from our fun adventure I was laying on the floor just taking a little breather. Magnolia comes and sits next to me and asks me to sing and do ring around the rosie. I told her that I needed to take a little break and didnt want any stimulus for one minute. She then looks at me and says "You old mommy?" Umm... yes. I guess I am officially old! :)
