Just because

Sometimes I think kids just can't help but to be soo cute! Here are some of Ashby's more recent moments.

A while ago, Nana sent us a few of these really cute bows. I always love how they look on Ashby. Ashby doesn't think they are an "all the time" look. So I click a pic or two when she wears them!
Music to her ears

Uncle "Pres"ton moved up to Utah last fall and it is definitely a highlight of her day when she sees him. She doesn't love him for his music in his iPod earphones, but she does love his music! She will
especially likes Dashboard
and Linkin Park!

Steppin' Up

Lately Ashby has realized that she wants to see or "wanna c" everything that happens in her world aka my day. This includes the eventful kitchen. So she has figured out that this stool is portable. She pushes it all around from cabinets to the counters, steps up on it and checks out the situation. She also likes to look for chips and treats. I love my sweet girl.

Girls and their Clothes
So it surprised me how quickly she has figured out how amazing clothing can be. She LOVES her shirts. I guess she hasn't figured out they are much more comfortable with less layers. I think she has like 10 shirts (8 of which she put on by herself!) in the picture with the the purple tip layer. Yeah...that's a lot of shirts!

What's UP!

My father-in-law forwarded this to me and it made me smile. You don't have to read it if you're feeling fed up! hehe

Our wonderful English language!

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meaning than any other two-letter word, and that is "UP." If you are not confused after reading this you must really be messed "UP."
It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list but when we waken in the morning, why do we wake UP. At a meeting, why does a topic come UP?
Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?
We call UP our friends, we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.

At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special, and this is confusing.
A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP.
To be knowledgeable of the proper uses of UP, look UP the word in the dictionary. In a desk size dictionary, UP takes UP almost 1/4th the page and> definitions add UP to about thirty.
If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.
When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets UP the earth. When it doesn't> rain for a while, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now my time is UP, so I'll shut UP...
