Happy half Birthday!

Monday was Kinzie's half birthday! She's a big 4 1/2 year old now! I can't beieve how big she is, and how fast the time has gone! I am so proud of this smart little girl of ours! Tuesday they celebrated her half birthday at school since she has a summer birthday. Me and the babies went into the classroom to celebrate with her!

She says the funniest things! I need to start writing more of them down because I don't have a good memory, but here a some of them that I can remember.

-The other day she was wearing a dress that had a second layer underneath it, and she pull up the top layer and says "OH GOD, OH MY LORD...there is ANOTHER skirt under here!" And she said it loud and slow, and sooo seriously! It was so funny!

-Kinzie was telling Grammy that one of her friends always makes her go to the bathroom with her, and she says "I don't know what her problem is?" And Grammy replied "well, you always make me go to the bathroom with you!", and she says "Well that's only when I have a big ginormous poop"!!

-One day when Scout was screaming, she put her hands over her ears and says "too loud. turn her DOWN!"

-I want to get new chapstick. I ate all my hello kitty ones. Can I have 2 scoops of yours Mommy?

Kinzie is such a little word police. Especially if you say stupid or hate. She'll catch you immediately and say "don't say stupid" or "don't say hate". Even when you don't think she is listening, she'll chime in all non-chalantly and just tell you as she continues whatever she was doing. And if you don't say sorry, then she'll jump on you about it until you acknowledge that you said it.

Kinzie is so into making crafts and cards right now. She sits in the craft room almost daily making little cards for people; mostly for her friend Kennedie. She cuts up little pieces of papers and glues them on paper or cards, and then she'll find any other little treasures she can use such as candy wrappers, tags from clothing......anything! She'll write a big mix of letters on it and then wants to know what it says. She loves to put her little handmade presents or cards into little gift bags or envelopes too. It's so adorable!

She is quite the little hoarder too. She has a little "play area" in her room, as she calls it, which is just the small corner between her toy bins, and then she also has a little play area downstairs. Both places have become her place to stash her treasures. Things anyone else would consider trash, are soooo important to her! Everything from tic tac containers, to clothing tags, to candy wrappers! She keeps EVERYTHING! And if you try to move or throw anything away she notices and gets very upset about it!!!! We did go through her little corner in her room together and "let go" of some things... It was a little emotional for her, but it was getting piled way too high. Among the stash I did find a peanut butter sandwich in a plastic ziplock bag!!! EWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!

Kinzie is always wanting to put on a talents show........but then she has no talent to show! She'll gather everyone up and say it's time for her big talent show! She'll even make little cards and has me write "will you please come to my talent show" on them, and she'll invite everyone! But then once she has everyone gathered and waiting, she'll get all shy and just stand there!!! I'm not sure she really gets the concept. It's so adorable.

She loves doing hi's and lo's at the dinner table every night! She always makes sure we don't forget to do them! And she is now finally starting to get the concept of hi's and lo's. For the longest time she'd mix them up.

Here are some recent photos of little miss Kinzerella:
