Auntie Cathe came over and painted Sloan's face like the Cowardly Lion. She is amazing at face painting. Sloan looked grrrrrrrrrreat!
"When I'm 64"
"In my Life"
Sloan did such an awesome job! This has been such a fun day. After the recital we took Sloan to eat at Jack in the Box. It was where she wanted to go. We munched down our food and then came home so her and Brendan could play while Jen and Jason went to the movies. We were able to leave the girls with Jen while we took Sloan to the recital. I think it is important for Sloan to have some one on one time when ever we are able. She worked so hard on this dance and every year she gets better at dance. Kathrine said Zoe could start classes in the fall if we would like. Dean and I are talking about it.

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend. Although Dean was camping and we weren't together for the weekend I still had a good time with the girls. On our way home from Kirsten's last night I had one of those "clear" moments when we were all in the car singing and talking. I am always in awe at how fun my girls are and how the dynamics of our family change from day to day. It is sometimes overwhelming how each little one has their own special personality. I sometimes wonder if I can keep up with all of them. I do know however, that I love these girls more than anything in this whole world.
Dean is home and he had a great weekend riding in Winnimucca. I am so glad he had a chance to go. He even made it home in time for our neighbor's BBQ. After the BBQ I went out for an hour with little Air Bear and it was nice to have some time to just kind of unwind. Dean was able to spend some time with Sloan and Zoe while I was gone. I had to return some pj's I bought for Aris, they had a hole in them. I am glad I did because while I was wandering through the store I found a twin sized bed skirt for the girls bed for $3. I was going to make one, but this was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. It looks great and it hides all the toy bins stored under the bed. The house is sort of coming together. It has been a great weekend. I hope you all have had a great weekend also.
This is a wedding cake.
This week Aris has really started to talk. She can say baby, bye-bye, Abby, and bye-bye daddy. She has also started mimicking the sounds of the words we say. It is so much fun to hear her say these words in her little munchkin voice. One of her favorite things to play at the moment is peek-a -boo. I know she isn't facing the camera the whole time, but I love how she is walking along furniture and trying to turn herself around while standing. Plus there is nothing sweeter and full of sugar than the back of a baby's neck.

Sloan showing Zoe how to use her journal.

Today in the car Zoe and I had a discussion about how Sloan has diabetes, but she doesn't. Zoe is constantly saying she feels shaky, or she needs her shots. When Sloan takes her shots, Zoe will take the lid off the insulin pen and pretend to give herself a shot in the belly "Just like Sissy". When she tells us "I'm shaky" Dean and I kind of laugh but it is fascinating, as little as Zoe is she is very in tune to Sloan and her Diabetes. I have tested Zoe' sugar two different times because I just wanted to make sure she had normal levels, and her pediatrician suggested it. Her sugar was normal both times. Zoe was so excited to test her sugar, and didn't cry or flinch when we pricked her finger. I actually caught her two different times in the process of testing her sugar with Sloan's kit.I had to talk to Zoe about how she didn't need to test her sugar, she assured me I was wrong. I had to talk to Sloan about putting her tester up so Zoe or Aris wouldn't get hurt. Zoe looks up to her sister soooo much. I love my girls. I hope some day Sloan won't have to worry about shot's and tests and highs and lows. Someday they will find a cure. I hope it is sooner than later.

This is my favorite photo of the girls.
The girls ran around and around the front yard. Then they would jump through the sprinkler and run around the yard a few more times. They did this for over an hour until I had them come in the house and...........................................................................................................................
