Good times with Lex...





Alexa was eight in January, and all girl. After being the only girl in the middle of 2 boys, she was ecstatic to find out the she was to have two, count 'em TWO baby sisters and has never looked back. She is the mommys helper, baby nurse and play mate, and just soo happy. If only we would allow her to have them share her room, that would be the icing on the cake! Someday...we are working on keeping her room clean enough to walk INTO, much less get two cribs and all the YOU KNOW WHAT that goes with a baby or two. Aside from the fact that I have never met a bigger slob, Alexa is always creating, so she needs her space to spread out and do her thing, whether drawing, designing fashion, writing songs or poems, dancing.....We'll see. I think she may change her mind when the twins start moving around. On their own that is.





Alexa and I have had some fun in the last couple of weeks. We started out with the Hannah Montana movie. How cute it was, and Miley Cyrus amazes me that she is only 15 and has the confidence to perform and write these songs in front of thousands of people...I am in awe. I was a liitle shocked at the maybe 10 year old girls screaming at the hunky Jonas brother...I mean, even I thought he was cute, but they were SOOOO young!!! I must've been a late bloomer...


And then Alexa thought it'd be fun to have a few friends over for a tea party this weekend, so we invited three of her friends, and had a delightful time....here she is with the table, yes it's in her bedroom, and Lily.


I'd love to include her friends in some photos, they were so sweet, but well with privacy issues......




We have had the most beautiful weather this last week, so we have been scootering like crazy, and trying to spend as much time outside as we can before it rains again...that is NOT my car by the way...

AH, I wish I had that beautiful weather! (Looking at SNOW out my window...) Your daughter sounds like SUCH a helper! That's wonderful!

Glad you posted the pics too, I love pics. Sometimes I get SO lazy and don't post them.

Hannah Montana sure is the in thing for preteen girls! I'm not familiar with it beyond the name of the "star".

What a beautiful, smart little girl she is. I love how much she loves those twin sisters. They will be lucky to have her. My sisters are my best friends.

What beautiful photos! I love the one of Alexa with the twins when they are real little. So sweet!! I was the only girl between two brothers for a long time...but when my step mom had two kids they ended up being boys, too!! So I know how happy Alexa must be!!
