A little of this, a little of that

Eleanor made my morning when she said "I love you" as I was cuddling with her.
I put new batteries in a few toys this morning, so it was like Christmas all over again with new toys to play with!
Zach had his first adventure outside for a few minutes this afternoon. He is walking in his sandals now.

Zoe, Emily, and I went to see "Ice Age 2" at our local theater this afternoon.

Emily ended up on my lap soon after it started and said she wished she had stayed with Eleanor and Zach at our friend's house. She was scared of the water creatures. She said something about going to sleep, but she watched the movie and even laughed at the funny parts. I didn't think I would like the movie at first, but it got better toward the middle and I liked the ending. Zoe enjoyed the movie.
Zach had his first walk around the park today when we stopped to play before going home after the movie. He climbed up some steps and went in a tunnel. He just loves to be outside, and I love the fact that I don't have to carry him or push him in a stroller at the park anymore!

Good job on taking the kids to the movie! I break out in a cold sweat if I have to take mine by myself, someone invariably has to go to the bathroom, and the other doesn't want to leave the theater, and the baby? FOrget about it. She can't be trusted, I tell you. ;O) I'll blog up your tagging meme thingys tomorrow, thanks for the tag and the read. It's mega cool you worked for a Chiro...Hubster is a Chiro! So when I complain about Insurance companies, at least I know I'll have a sympathetic ear!

I love Scripture Power! I've done jobs #1 and #2, too. I like job #4 much better. Good job taking your kids to the movies alone! You're very brave. I never have even considered doing that with my 4.

Crap! I read which means I am tagged. ;) Can I tell you again how much I love pics of your kids? And I loved reading that meme! Why oh Why did I not realize you were LDS until today? I'm kind of slow on the pickup!

For the record if anyone checks back to read this, I only took my older 2 girls to the movies. I did consider taking all 4, but then I realized how insane that would be!
