I love Disney movies. I know in most cases she can watch and we don't have to worry about content. But this time, they use the word "idiot" at least seven times. I am not to wild about that, but she hasn't tried to use it yet so maybe I am worrying over nothing.
I don't think this is the best work of Disney. The animation has several flaws. I know, it is just an animated movie. But when you watch something as often as we have watched this, you notice these things. I am just glad it is warm and light until about 8PM. We have been enjoying a walk and her new swing set too!

I am always after Katie for leaving stuff laying around, especially things that Mattie May can get into.
A few months back, as I sat with Mattie May fixing her hair, I noticed that Katie had left her tweezers (again) on the lamp table. Being in the usual rush to get Mattie May and me both ready for the day, I did not pick them up.
I finished her hair, gave her a kiss and her cup, and sat her on her blanket to watch "Micka Mouse" while I finished getting dressed. From my bedroom I could see her get up and go towards the sofa. I headed that way. Before I could get there, she went running towards the bathroom. I watched as she jumped up on her stool, then she just stood there. What was she doing?
I had to take a breath to keep from laughing out loud. There she stood, looking in to my little magnifying mirror that she had in her left hand and the tweezers in her right hand holding them up to her eye brow. She just stood there, no movement.
When I asked her what she was doing, she only replied "Momma". She was imitating what she had seen Katie do many times! At this point I did laugh out loud, but my answer to her was "Yes, you are doing like your momma, but your momma should have put these up". She puckered up and gave me a great big kiss and a hug and we continued getting ready, brushing our teeth, closing up the house and heading on to day care and work.
I know I am rambling again and everyone is surely tired of all my Mattie May stories. I just felt this was a cute and funny example to prove a point - Watch what you do in the sight of your children, because they are certainly watching you!

I know we probably should have put some clothes on her. But it was really easy to clean her up when she was finished.
I hope everyone got to enjoy Easter Sunday as much as we did. It is always fun when our family can get together and have lunch after church like we used to every Sunday when we were kids. We have some pretty awesome memories from that and we hope our children have the same kind of memories when they are our age.

Our boys had a very good run. They were never ranked and still played their way to the Championship game. According to a news report Frank and I heard on our way to Austin, there are 209 2AA teams in Texas. So I would say, making it all the way to the State Championship game is something to be extremely proud of. They battled through some tough games and gave everyone something to be excited about.
Congratulations on all you accomplished this season and we will see you again next year.

I wish you boys all the luck! Play your game and you will do well.
Question: Has any school every swept the state basketball title, 2A or otherwise? I would just like to know.
