My mom has been buying some great books to read to Alivia at her house. Tonight my dad was reading her this book. It is such a great book about manners. Each page shows a different Disney character acting out a specific manner. Alivia loves it and wants to act like all these princesses! :)
Today was Alivia's first picture day at school. Ava and Alivia go to the same preschool but are in different classes since they are 2 years apart. Allison and I did not plan for them to have matching shirts on but it was pretty funny when our babysitter sent this picture to us! Love these girls! We will see how her first picture day comes out! She said she smiled good....:)
Ben and I have been looking for a car for some time now. His car keeps breaking down so we decided to trade it in. Ben was also nice enough to let me pick the new car so he is taking the Envoy. My all time favorite car is the Acadia but we wanted something less expensive. When we were at CarMax last weekend we saw the Jeep Commanders and I LOVED it. I especially loved the 3rd row option. They found one in Omaha with the color and everything in the inside thtat I wanted. We went to look at it yesterday and next thing we knew it was ours! Alivia loves it too since she can watch movies. We have already had to discuss with her that we are not going to watch Dora everytime we get in the car. ha!! It was so fun driving around this weekend! :)
