....and while I do get sick of stepping on millions of tiny Barbie shoes in my carpet I got to thinking this morning that I really do enjoy helping to be Barbie's stylist haha. I mean, just how many fashion looks can you give Batman or Thomas the Train? Clearly I'd be in a sad state of affairs if I had boys haha. So bring on Barbie! It's a Barbie world at this house and I love it :-)
|Nice face Brielle lol :-P|
|I love listening to Brielle play Barbies. Her dialogue always involves finding a baby and making it say "where's my mama?!" in a little whiny voice....and then she'll find a Mama and say "here I am!" haha|
And here are my own little Barbie dolls showing off the outfits they chose this morning!
|This dress was from Gymboree's recent $12.99 sale (I had an additional 20% off too!) I love this on Raya.|
|Seriously, she's two and already bustin' out these poses lol.Love that hand on hip :-P|
(This dress is from a trip to the consignment store when I scored big--I got like 5 gymboree dresses for $1.50 each haha)
Later this morning we put on some paint shirt to do some do-a-dot painting...
|I have never tried having Brielle use these on actual do-a-dot papers...so today I taught her how to stay in the circles. Her first attempt (blue) wasn't so great|
|This yellow was her second attempt and look how awesome she was doing already! :-)|
I simply cannot figure out how to take pictures well in bright sunlight. Is there a secret? A different lens? I make all the ISO/SS/f adjustments I'm supposed to but they still end up so bright :-/
Here are a couple swing pictures that weren't too bad...
Then the bugs drove us to the front yard (seriously, all the recent rain has our yard SWARMING with insects---ewwwww!)
Our bubble fun was cut short in the front yard from the yucky bugs too! But I still got a couple quick pics. The girls LOVE bubbles. (And in case you didn't know, it's *really* hard to blow a bubble, quick grab your camera, and then take a picture before the bubble pops! haha)
And now we wait for Daddy to get home! A pretty typical, yet wonderful Monday. Hope you had the same!
