Amber and Elle have a love/hate relationship, as I recall that was how my sister and I used to be as kids as well. I remember my mom getting frustrated with us and would have to have us go play alone so we could get a break from each other. I know feel my mother's pain. It is wonderful the days that they are playing well with each other and look like this:
But then there are days when they are just so mean and fight with each other that they make me crazy! Those are the days that I pretty much have to separate them for my own sanity. Amber's face pretty much tells you that this is a hate day:
I just hope that their relationship turns out how Bonnie and mine has. We are great friends and talk at least a couple of times a week (if not daily). We totally get each other and think alike so it is so nice to have her to talk to be we just 'get' each other.
Here are a couple of other pictures of my cute little people and the different things that they have been up to.

Dress up with there cousin Natalie that got to sleep over. It was the girls first sleep over at our house. They had lots of fun and were sad that she had to go home.

They have spent hours and hours playing on this thing - loving that!

Preschool Graduation

Amber graduated (if you would really call it that) from preschool on May 18. As you can tell by the jackets it was a very cold day for St. George. Everyone was squeezed inside a tiny gazebo at the Vernon Worthen Park so as not to be out in the wind and on and off again ran. She was excited to sing all the songs for me but wasn't too excited to have to say goodbye to all her little friends and her teacher Ms. Kami. She has a lot of experiences at preschool most of them good. She was always excited to go to preschool and cried when she was sick and couldn't go. I can't believe that she will be going to kindergarten in a couple of months!? It makes me a little sad that that part is over and now she will be heading to an elementary school.

This is all the kids from her school only half of them are from her class. Amber is on the right side in the pink jacket.
