Not for Gells...

SO Cole's latest phrase is "Not for Gells." (Not for girls.) He says it to Bella every chance he gets. I think it comes from me telling him that he can't wear Bella's princess dress ups. He wants in on all the dress up action - especially when Bella has friends over and they are all into it. I tell him - "Princess dresses are for girls. You go find your fireman costume or the cowboy boots and hat. Boys don't wear dresses." He is so disappointed but slowly starting to figure out that there are things just for boys too! He loves to tell Bella that his cars and squeaky shoes are "Not for Gells." So cute!

This is pretty cute, but I'm of the persuasion that boys can't do everything but girls can, you know what I mean :)

You always have the cutest stories to tell. So thanks so much for letting me use your cupcake stand. I'm going to drop it off with some yummy Dippity cupcakes so get prepared. I know they are dangerous. I'm going to get my own soon so others can barrow from and not just you. You could make some seroius money renting it out! You're a doll. Brit

Steph-the heber creeper was worth it. Initially I didn't think so but after it was all said and done, my kids had so much fun riding the train and getting scared, I'd have to recommend it.
About the food donation, it really was good for me because I was able to get rid of stuff that is taking up space. Remember when I said at enrichment that I like to pretend I live in Europe b/c of my grocery shopping habits? well it's true. Stuff will expire before I use it. That's how often I shop for food. Sad. I need to be more thrifty, fresh food is just so tempting, you know?

M ~ Totally understand now. I love to hit the store everyday as well... I was bragging to KTate that I had my 3 months supply in my pantry alone, but then Lisanne asked me how much of it could be used to conjur something up without fresh ingredients. Tough one... Not sure! :) We have to have fresh something!
Thanks for the tip on the train ride. Not sure if we will make it up this year, but I love knowing what to plan on in advance too. Loves --
