I Drew A Picture About Halloween

The picture reads: "We went trick-or-treating and got lots of candy before it started to rain. Daddy didn't dress up. Mommy as a ballerina. I'm a ballerina chewing gum. Ambria is a princess chewing gum."

Mom's note: Dad did dress up with a U of M football jersey and I was a flower, not a ballerina--couldn't Mariah tell with my flower headband, pink boa, and funny skirt? :)

Riding Our Barbie Jeep

The hills make the jeep go really fast but sometimes we get stuck going back up the hills and mom has to push us.

My First Lemonade Stand

We had a garage sale and my mom said I could have a lemonade stand. I was sooo excited. (Mom's note: It is 2009, we had a "Flavored Water" stand where people could pick out their own flavor and put it in their water bottle--it was a hit! It brought in over $20).

Here is a picture of me at my lemonade stand. I helped my mom make the sign.

I got to walk around to other garage sales and buy some stuff. This is one thing I bought with my money from the lemonade stand.
(Mom's note: We set up the stand at 10:00am and Mariah was off to play at a friend's house at 11:30am. I guess playing with friends is more fun than making money).

4th of July

This is a picture of me and my Aunt Jenny and Uncle Eric.

This is me with my Uncle Jon and my new cousin Adelyn. We were at the fireworks. I covered my ears during the fireworks because they were so loud. I liked eating cotton candy.

My Mom Doesn't Understand Me

Mariah: Mom, see if you can guess what I am saying (covering her mouth with both hands and mumbling words)

Mom: Ok

Mariah: thaougyhaotuobnarhgotg

Mom: Hmm, what's for dinner?

Mariah: No, guess again. thaoughyhautuobnarhgotg

Mom: Hmm, I like pizza?

Mariah: No, mom, GUESS what I am saying.

Mom: I give up

Mariah: There is an echo in the canyon!

A Day at Grandma and Papi's

Here is a picture of me and my cousins.

We rode in our car to Grandma and Papi's house. When we got there, Nina and Maya were waiting for me. We drove our Barbie Jeep all around the yard. I drove the Jeep and then Nina got to drive too. We were laughing and bumping up and down. It was so much fun. Then we ate lunch and then watched a Barbie movie and played outside some more. After the movie, we ate pizza. After dinner, we rode in the Jeep again and went on the swings. Then we went home.

The end.

Musical 5 (an original song by Mariah)

"I'm a musical rock star
It's a little musical
It's so pretty
Oh yeah
It's a little loud
It's a little too loud

I'm a little microphone

It's a little bitty oh
It's a little video
It's Mariah on tv

It's Hannah Montana
Yeah, its Hannah Montana

Rock star
Rock star
Rock star

Yeah, she loves it, she loves it, she loves it
Yeah, she loves is yeah, she loves it yeah.

She loves it."

(do a fancy twirl spin, then scream at the top of your lungs!)

Splashing in Florida

Me and Ambria playing in the pool and cooling off from the hot sun.

The Clothes Dilemma

On the eve of her 5th birthday...


(Mariah proceeds to collapse on the floor with a closet and dresser FULL of clothes, but she keeps insisting that she has NOTHING to wear!! I hope this isn't a glimpse into the future.)

Sit Still

Ambria won't sit still in an attempt at a conversation.

New Background

Mariah: Mom, I don't like the cupcake background.

Mom: You don't? I think it is really cute.

Mariah: Those cupcakes are NOT cute.

Mom: Ok (looking for new blog backgrounds)

Mariah: Mom, those hearts are sooo adorable. I want that.

Hence...the new background.

Mariah: Mom, I think I am going to have a baby when I get older.

Mom: You are, huh? Why do you say that?

Mariah: (looking down at her belly) Because my belly is starting to get bigger.

Wednesday Dinner Menu

(We haven't had very consistent homemade dinners lately, so tonight, Mariah got to choose what she wanted for dinner...)

Mom: Mariah, what do you want for dinner?

Mariah: Pickles, pineapple, and a cheese stick.

Mom: Ok, anything else?

Mariah: Orange juice

(You gotta love her. I guess it is pretty healthy. And she ate it ALL up.)

Mom: No, what?

Mariah: They said that they want me to eat them.

My Dad

Mariah said she wanted to blog about daddy, she was all excited and said we would have a "Blog Night"....

I like my dad. I like when I can talk to my dad on the phone.

My favorite thing was when I went sledding with daddy. I like going to Chuck E. Cheese with daddy. I like when we go out on SaturDates. I like when me and dad talk together. I like when daddy goes to the store with me.

When my daddy comes home I want to give him a gift bag. Inside the bag, is a doggy made out of a balloon. When he comes home, I want to show him the silly yellow squish ball.

A Night at the Pool

On Friday we went to the pool. Janelle, Brianna, Emma, Liam, Owen, Kelly, and Nate were there. Grandma and Papa were there too. I went in the hot tub and then I went in the big, freezing cold pool. Then I went in the really freezing cold pool. Then I went back in the hot tub and it was so warm.

A Quick Thought

"Mom, you should teach Ambria how to keep her drool in her mouth and swallow it."

Every Saturday, I got on a date with my dad. Today I went out for breakfast. I ate blueberry pancakes with sausage. Daddy had some blueberry pancakes too. Then we looked around a store for flowers to buy mom. Dad lost his keys but I helped him find them. Then we went home to show mom her flowers.I took this picture of me and daddy.
