It all seems to make sense now....

Growing up one of my FAVORITE movies was Drop Dead Fred. Those of you that haven't seen it--WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?--those of you that have know what an epic amazing film it is ;)
It's about a lady going through a divorce and her childhood imaginary friend comes back to visit. The movie takes you through various "memories' showing what mischievous horrible things Fred had this girl do.
Fred is a naughty naughty friend but, oh so very funny. But because he's imaginary the little girl gets the rat for all the naughty things that happen.

Well....remember this little girl that we have nicknamed "Beast":

Remember how she is the epitomy of toddler and always gets into trouble in some way or another?
Well...I have figured out the culprit behind the little angel face. And her name is "Chaka Khan".
Zoie has an imaginary friend. Zoie has been talking about Chaka Khan for the past few months. At first we thought it was just a word she was saying...some kind of babbling. Then we started to catch on to things. Like she would ask where Chaka Khan was. Or she would randomly say "hi" to Chaka Khan. We soon came to realize that Chaka Khan is Zozo's friend.
She walks around telling us what Chaka Khan is doing and I will randomly see her in the corner saying hi to someone.
So it's official. Zoie has her own "Fred" The beastliness all makes sense now.....Welcome to the family Chaka Khan.

I'm Not Ok With It

Dear Maker of Time,
Please slow down. My newest itty bitty has been growing too much too fast and I would prefer that you slow things down a bit. Her rolls have tripled in size. Her chins have tripled in numbers. And while it is all good and dandy because we LOVE us some chubby baby--it has all happened a bit too fast.
Thank you for still allowing her to be small enough to sleep for hours on my chest--it is something I shall hold onto dearly and neglect cleaning my house as long as you will allow.
If I slip you a twenty could you please promise me that things will start slowing down from here on out? Thank you very much.
Momma Costa.

School Is Cool

First day of 3rd grade...wait...WHA?! Seriously? Roo is already in 3rd grade and I don't know how I feel about this. 3rd grade might not seem that old, but she is already to the point where she worries about what to wear on the first day of school...
This girl is gonna be trouble in years to soon come--but until then, she makes a pretty darn cute 3rd grader. I shall just sob over the fact that my kids are getting too big too quick.

Zoie's Twin?

While you watch this picture the little kid is a girl...and there you have exactely how Zoie is....another justification for the nick name "Beast".


This girl is all about spunk...and pizazz...and I like her.

Through Grandma's Eyes

My girls are Grandma Nisey fans. Riley monopolizes her, and Zo idolizes her. They have officially named the guest room "Vovo Nisey's room". Lately you will hear Zo walk around the house saying, "I Love it, VoVo Nisey." (when Zoie likes something she will say, "I love it" followed by what she loves.

So, when the opportunity presented itself to wear grandma's glasses, Zo took it. She strutted around while making us laugh. Dispite Zo's attempts to bend and brake them, Grandma laughed and smiled in awe. It's lovely to have such a great grandma. It's even lovelier to have kiddos that want to "walk in her footsteps"--or in this case, "see through her eyes".
