This was a special show that Kara did for her mom and dad! I thought I'd share it.

French braid

Here's our first attempt at french braiding Kara's hair. Not bad, huh?

She was happy with it.

Here's what happens when you take a picture of Kara talking...lol!

Hand-Eye Coordination at Chuck E. Cheese

video
Do you know how hard it was to hold the camera and not help her with this game? She didn't do too bad.

Kara's New Bike



Thanks to the Roco family for Kara's new bike. She is a little scared of it but hopefully by this summer she'll be zooming down the sidewalk! (Aunt Tricia gave her the cool basket and really loud horn!)

Family Movie Night

I got this idea from the Heater family. Last week, we watched the movie Bolt, ate popcorn and called it "Family Movie Night."

Kara was so excited that she brought all her pillows and blankets to the basement.

She insisted eating her popcorn with a spoon...

But I'm not sure about the movie choice for her. She scares easily. Every scene was a scary part for her and she spent most of the movie like this.
That's why later in the week, Luke and I decided to go see Monsters Vs. Aliens by ourselves. We just told her the name of the movie and that Miss Katie was going to babysit her and she was fine with us leaving her home. Luke and I liked Monsters Vs. Aliens (and Bolt) but are not sure if we would recommend it to families with really little kids (just a couple of jokes that were slightly off color but would probably go over little kids' heads). Both the family movie night and date night at the movies were a fun time!!!
