Of course, Alex wasn't hot. She insisted that her legs were "freezing", but I'm pretty sure that was just because she didn't want to take her stripes off. I promise, we don't leave the house with her dressed this way very often.
Oh, and disregard that person in the red shirt in that picture. I kind of forgot that I was in front of a glass door.
But then I embraced it.
Hi everybody. It's me, Erin. It's 1pm and I'm still in my gym clothes.
That's chalk. She got it on her nose by soaking the chalk in water, "painting" it on to the ground, and then I caught both of them spitting on to the painted chalk. She got a little too close to the ground while spitting. Sorry folks, I can't watch them every second. I was eating my own popsicle! But it made a perfect heart on her little nose.
See? A little chalky-spit heart.
I told her that she had a heart on her nose, and this is the face she made when trying to look at her own nose.
And there she goes again with those crazy eyebrows of hers. Have you ever seen anyone turn from having two fairly normal eyebrows into a quatro-brow?? I can just see God chuckling while he designed Alex... "And for this one, I'm going to make it so that when she raises her eyebrows, they'll double. That'll keep 'em guessing."
I don't know what it was about this sweet treat, but it brought out the sweet in my little monsters. I promise I didn't do anything to encourage this. I've actually been doing all I can recently to insist that they not touch each other in any way. It's been a little brutal around here lately.
But oh, the cuteness.
