This one's for my girls

I added the "Annie" gadget at the left to end a disagreement between the girls and I. Still not great at this whole blogging thing, I can't figure out how to make the whole thing show up.

It is so much fun that they are interested in some of the same things that I was as a little girl. First was Little House on the (excuse me while I use the dictionary feature on my laptop to look this next word up) Prairie, why is that word so hard to spell? Now they are loving the movie "Annie" and all the songs in it. I remember my Mom taking my sister and I to see the play when it came to Detroit in the 80's. We had a record (had to explain to the girls what a record is/was) of the sound track from the play, and used to play it over and over again singing at the top of our lungs. Now my girls are doing the same thing, only they now have them movie and get to watch it over and over again.

They have been singing "It's a Hard Not Life" all day today, so I finally said, "I think it is actually, It's the Hard Knock Life" No, that doesn't sound right, they said. So what did we do to find out the actual lyrics? Google it , of course! Enjoy!


  1. I LOVE Annie! Definitely one of my favs (Next to Sound of Music). I feel so out of the loop and didn't recognize some of the names and faces in your New Yea'rs Post...Sarah, Leah, Anna. I know your sister recently adopted....are all of these girls hers?

    Also loved your Christmas photo post. I defintiely think "less is more" and Darcy and I are planning on scaling back a lot next year. We did scale back this year...but it was still more than necessary .It's just not enjoyable when it gets too commercial. And what is up with the snuggies? Many of my friends
    children got these too! Funny and cute!

    And I must say, your girls are strikingly beautiful! They have that natural beauty that just glows...much like their mommy.

  2. Thanks Amanda, you are too sweet! Yes, all those girls are Jen's. Anna and Levi are their newest additions, so 6 total. They have such a beautiful family. :)

    And thanks so much for your "book" on the running log post. I love hearing how other women stay looking fabulous. You inspired me to join WW again, hopefully I will stick to this time!
