Elena really wanted to cut her hair short! I was so against it, and still am but figure I should let her make her own choices. So, she promised me she would do it everyday she could cut it. She loves it and told me that it now fits her personality better to have it short. (what does a mother know :)) She is growing up way too fast. She even started flat ironing on her own.
Max really improved his grades as well. He is finally starting to enjoy school and reading. His teacher said he should be getting straight A's because he is so smart, but he just has a hard time motivating himself. I wonder where he got that? It couldn't be from me..... ;) He is really enjoying reading thanks to all the great books my mom got him for Christmas. He has already read 2 of them and can't wait to read the rest.
Aidan has been quite the character this past week. He loves being one of the older kids in the nursery. He looks forward to playgroup and nursery every week. He did have some run in's with corners and bushes this past week. As noted on the picture he scratched his head up pretty good playing in the bushes after church and then another long bruise happened after playing hide and seek in the closet about 2 inches away from the first one (not in the picture since it happened after the picture was taken). I just had to take this picture. He was suppose to be in his bed. When I came into my room he had taken over my bed and was curled up with his hand under his chin. So cute! I couldn't resist.
This past weekend, a friend called me and asked me if I would help her finish decorating a cake for a wedding and help her decorate the table. I said sure as I have never done anything like that before. It was a lot of fun. I wish I would have brought my camera because it turned out great. I didn't do much, but learned quite a bit. It was a lot of fun!
