Katie & I finished her princess book today! No, we didn't just start it last week when we finished the other one - we had already read most of it. We just took a break to read the Nursery Rhymes & Fairytales. Today, we read the last Cinderella Story in the book and finished it!
Our next book is "Because of Winn-Dixie." We'll see how it goes because this will be our first chapter book that doesn't have any pictures. After this we will definitely be checking chapter books out of the library - at least until we can start building our Juevenile Library fast enough to keep up with Katie! When McKenna & I were at the library today the librarian gave me some really good recommendations. I'm excited to check them out and see how Katie likes them.
I think our next library addition (perhaps for Katie's birthday) will be the original Winnie the Pooh. I've never read them and have always wanted to. Perfect!
Do any of you have any suggestions? I think we're looking for 2nd/3rd grade chapter books (pictures would be nice, but not needed).

The picture might be hard to see, but this is Katie's first drawing of her pregnant mommy. Katie is on the left, mom & baby in the middle, and "monster Daddy" on the right. She laughed when she said that and said it was dad dressed up like a monster (?) . She also told me that the bindi's on Katie & me are ponytails. It is SO FUN to watch her creative skills develop and to see what goes on inside her mind.
I LOVE this picture!
*btw my belly doesn't actually hang below my feet, thankfully! :)

Katie wanted to stay in the theater until the "very end!" so we sat there through the credits, finished our snacks, and snapped some of these fun shots. She is such a blast and I love being able to have some alone time with her. I am a very lucky mama!

AJ & Katie rockin' in the New Year
We had our second annual Rockband New Years Eve party with the Giffords and the Wilkins. We had fun chatting, rocking, laughing, EATING, and just being together. We didn't go as strong as last year - rockband was over by about 9:30 and kids were in bed by about 10 (they actually asked to go to bed!) - but we still had a great time. We love our friends and were so glad we were able to spend the night with them before taking off New Years Day.
