Yes, Leightyn is wearing boy jammies....what else can you get when she loves Woody and Buzz. Mylea loves her Elmo and Minnie Mouse jammies.
Awanas has started back up and Leightyn is super excited about this year. This is her second (and final) year in Cubbies. There are on average 7 three and four year olds in her class. Leightyn is already working hard on learning her verses and completing her homework. It's going to be a great year in Awanas!
For those of you who can not view the video, it shows Leightyn reciting the:
Cubbies motto: Jesus Love Me
Verse A: "all have sinned"
Verse B: "God loved us and sent His Son"
Verse C: "while we were sinners, Christ dies for us"

When we pulled in to the theater, Leightyn started squealing and clapping her hands. She was "so excited to go to the movies and get popcorn, and candy, and coke". Jo arrived shortly after us and Leightyn began the squealing again. She talked a mile a minute on the way inside the theater. When we got to the snack bar, Leightyn decided on a kids snack box (popcorn, fruit snacks, and a drink) along with some Twizzlers ("cause my daddy likes these"). Leightyn loved the movie. Watching a 3D movie is a whole new experience. My mom and I wore the glasses but they were huge on Leightyn. She did her best to keep them on the entire time but towards the end she said they were to heavy to wear. The movie was ok but not as great as the book. The majority of the story line had nothing to do with the book......but Leightyn still loved it.
It was a great late night out with my mom and Leightyn. I love going to the late movies and having the theaters to ourselves. Leightyn loves going because she knows that she should already be in bed. We plan on keeping these late nights going as often as we can. My mom and I are going to take advantage of these nights before Leightyn starts school next fall.

The birthday party was at Rob and Candi's house (Landen's cousin). When all the guest arrived, I was surprised to find out that we already knew the majority of them. One of the little girls invited took gymnastic with Leightyn for two years and is usually at the library on Thursday. Another little girl is part of our MOPS playgroup and Leightyn is in the same class with her.
The birthday party was great! Leightyn and Mylea had so much fun. Candi had the girls make sack puppets, play pin the bow on Hello Kitty, and musical chairs. Leightyn and Mylea were excited about eating strawbery cake and ice cream and also getting a favor bag to take home.
