He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

What are you wearing?? and Mr. Potato Head

Last week after we went swimming, Austin "announced" that he was going to go upstairs and get dressed and that he absolutely did NOT want Mommy's help. So, I thought this would be interesting and wondered what he would pick out of his closet to wear for the day. I walked into his room a couple of minutes later to find him in his closet (and working very hard I might add) putting on this:

His Buzz Lightyear flannel pjs from last winter!! Silly kiddo!

Look how short they are! :) I think he needs some new Buzz pjs don't you? ;) AND I think Mommy is still going to need to help him pick out his clothes for a little while longer. :)

As I have mentioned before, the A Team are HUGE fans of Toy Story 3 these days. Austin went almost a full week talking, thinking and dreaming about getting a Mr. Potato Head. (He was obsessed about it and driving us a little CRAZY by talking about it all.the.time!!) We definitely talked a lot that week about being content with what we have and working for what we want and being thankful for what God has given us, etc. Well, we went to take Mauritzen family pictures last weekend (which turned out great!:) and we told our 2 oldest that if they smiled and behaved great that we would reward them with a Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. They did do great (Ains not so much, but we have to keep reminding ourselves that she is two after all), so we took them to Toys r Us to get their new toys. It really was cute and a little sad at the same time watching the true excitement and awe on their faces as we walked through the store on the hunt for the Potatoes. We just never take them to places like that (and it def showed!! 3 little ones in Toys r Us has never sounded like an idea of a good or little stress time to me. ;)

In the end Austin got his Mr. Potato Head and Audrey chose her very 1st Barbie (she has tons of Disney princess dolls, but amazingly no Barbies yet) and we also got the Mrs. Potato Head for Ains and Audrey to share. :) We had some very happy kiddos that day!
