Queen of the Flies

The flies won't leave Deanna alone. With no other choice, she teams up with a friendly spider and seeks out the infamous queen of the flies in order to address her wrongs.

Family pictures

On Friday, we spontaneously decided that we wanted an updated family portrait. So, we grabbed my brother Josh and went to the temple, right as the sun was setting. Thanks a ton, Josh!

The Unhappy Lioness

Back in September, I found a very cute lion costume at Kid to Kid. I was intending on making Miss Ariah a lion costume for Halloween, but I couldn't possibly make one for as cheap as this costume was. I was excited to try it on her, only to make the little lioness roar. She would have torn up the costume, had she had real claws.

So, for the month of October, I tried to put it on her, hoping that she would learn to love it. I even tried bribing her with chocolate. Silly Ariah. Don't you know that your name means lion in Hebrew (according the the reliable world wide web, anyways...)? Don't you know that this costume is a manifestation of the lioness tendencies that exist within you? Hmm... maybe she was unhappy because it had a mane...

THE tradition

PS-don't have a one-year-old finger paint. Sounds like a no duh statement, I know.

Where's daddy's nose?

Ariah is pretty good at pointing out facial features when we ask her where they are. It has amazed me how many words she understands when she hears them, such as baby, bear, binky, sleep, love (which she responds to by giving a snuggly hug), downstairs, outside, who's that, etc.
