Yesterday Uncle John took Sawyer and Raya to the movies and I kept Harper and Brielle. Raya had a great time and came home full of popcorn, candy, and with lots of little trinkets and winnings from the arcade. Uncle John was joking that they had already spent $42 before they even made it to the arcade lol---movies are pricey nowadays!
The funniest part was when John was recounting how after the movie they went to the arcade and then they were leaving and Raya realized she had lost her bracelet (she's into wearing jewelry now---more on that later!). Apparently she told John "that's my special bracelet and you can only buy it at the mall and all the other girls will have theirs and I need mine! ..." So John said he went back to the theater and I guess the next showing had already begun and people were sitting in their seats...so he was using his phone as a flashlight and asking them to lift their legs and crawling around on the floor in the glow of his cellphone haha. Sadly they didn't find the special bracelet :-P At least Uncle John tried!
Raya got home around 2:30 and shortly after crashed on the couch---a fun Friday for her!
And speaking of jewelry, like I said Raya is getting more girly by the day haha. She's now really into jewelry! She wore one of my necklaces to the movies and a little bracelet...and before John arrived to pick her up she said to me "Uncle John will say 'who is that beautiful girl wearing the necklace?' because he won't know it's me....and then I'll say 'it's me, Rayana!" lol.
So today when Daddy was fishing the girls and I had lunch at the mall and then I let Raya pick out some necklaces of her very own. They had a bunch of $1 necklaces at Claires so she got quite a variety, including an icecream cone necklace, flip flop necklace, owl necklace, and hello kitty.

The other thing Raya has started recently is she changes into at least 2-3 outfits daily haha. She loves "twirly dresses" the best and she loves to accessorize with headbands. Here are a few of the looks she's put together in the past couple days! (Oh, and she pays no attention to the weather---she's been wearing tanks during our recent cold front with temps in the 40s lol)
|This is a maxi dress that I got a couple years ago on Zulily and it ran really really big...finally fits (She picked the headband and shoes all by herself)|
|This is a little $8 dress I picked up at JCPenny awhile back.|
|Naartjie outfit I got used online|
|This is from Children Place (sorry, pants are sometimes a pain with constant potty breaks ;-)|

|I'm now obsessed with these headbands on Brielle :-P|

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
