"Tinkerbell's Spell"

I had to take these photos of Zoe writing, "Tinkerbell's Spell" today. There was something beautiful about her mess of paper, crayons, markers, magazines and toy bears. There is also something beautiful about a child writing for fun, making up her own stories.

Yesterday Zoe explained to me how she made a beaded necklace: "I kept looking at the picture in my mind to see what to do next."

Meanwhile, Ashley is talking more and more. She likes to ask me how to spell words, because she hears Zoe asking me that all the time. We also write her name together, hand over hand. Then she gets all excited and asks me if she can, "Go show Daddy!"

I am Zoe and Ashley's biggest fan =)

Saturday, making the eggs:

Sunday, on the porch with Abi, our neighbor, eating the candies from the mold that I made with dairy-free peppermint chocolate.

I took a short video of the girls dancing to their High School Musical Soundtrack. Check out Ashley talking and dancing with Zoe! I'm going to type all the talking during the video, in case it's hard to
understand them:

Ashley: This is fun! It is SO Fun!
Ashley: Look at I made this Mommy! Look, look!
Me: That's great!
Ashley: That's great?
Ashley: Mommy, (I'm) dancing!
Ashley: Look. Can I hold it? Can I hold it?
Me: Yea.
Ashley: Look, I made this. Mommy look. Please read it, Mommy. (read the card)
Ashley: It's for us. It's for us. (the cards and dresses are for Zoe and Ashley)
Zoe: Okay... (now she's borred of dancing... haha)

Have a Happy Easter! Love, Kelly
