1st Time Bowling

My birthday was last weekend and Asha's dad refused to take her because she had a cold so instead of going out with the girls for my birthday the girls, their kids, me and Asha all went bowling. We had an amazing time. Asha made it through 1 1/2 games and did pretty well.

A couple of times she wanted to do it by herself and the ball took forever to get to the end if it got to the end at all. One time it got stuck right in the middle and we had to have someone come down and get it for us. It was all just too funny and so much fun. I wish we would have thought of bowling at the beginning of winter instead of the end.

Here are some fun pictures of our fun day!!

This is just a fun one at home before we left for the day. We were gone all day with eating out for lunch, bowling and then going out for supper as well. Our friends made sure we had a GREAT day. Here's my girl when we first got to the bowling alley. She was so excited!!

This is how she liked to watch the ball go slowly down the lane. It was so cute!!

Still waiting and watching. Wow that ball sure does go slow.

She thought it was pretty funny when her ball got stuck and someone had to come down and rescue it.

It really was a great day and we had so much fun!!

Here she is helping my friend's daughter bowl. She started doing this after she was too tired to bowl for herself.

This picture just cracks me up. It is my friend helping Asha bowl. I just thought it was too funny to pass up.
If you want a good laugh take your kids bowling. It is great fun!!

Sweetest Girl

I have got the sweetest most loving girl in the whole wide world. She has such a big heart and she is so full of emotion and love it just amazes me.

We walk in the door to her day care every morning and all the teachers she passes she has to tell them she loves them. Her 2 regular teachers adore her and I think truly do love her. When I had to call them on Thursday morning to let them know that she would not be coming to school because she was sick they were so worried for her and told me to give her big hugs from them.
We walk through the stores and she talks to everyone. She says hi and then will strike up a conversation with anyone who will listen to her babble. I have been trying to instill a little stranger danger into her but it is not working. She knows what a stranger is and she is getting a little better about who she talks to but she is just so loving and so friendly that she just can't understand how people could be mean. When kids at school are mean to her she just does not get it. She comes home asking why certain kids do and say certain things and she just doesn't understand why they would want to be mean. It is sad to hear the way some of these kids act.
It is just not in my girl to be mean to others which makes me a very happy momma that she wants to be nice to everyone I just hope that she doesn't get hurt in the process. She is so nice to all of her friends at school but some just are not nice in return. I thinks she tries even harder to be nice to them which puts her in the way of more meanness. I have told her to stay away from the mean kids but she thinks that they will eventually be nice to her I guess.
Today at the end of the day she walked around the class room and gave all the kids who were left hugs. She could not leave without hugging them. She felt so bad last Wednesday when she left school and had not hugged her friends. Her little heart is so big and so full of love. She makes me so proud.

Here she is with all of her loot from Valentines Day at school. She really made out. We had a ton of candy.

Here she's having a tea party picnic with the bear I got her for Valetine's Day. She loves to have tea parties.

Her cheeks look so pudgy in this picture I love it. I tell her that her cheeks are like soft pillows for my lips. She laughs and then squishes my pudgy cheeks.
