It's been awhile...

So I have this friend that keeps informing me that I haven't updated my blog in forever, so I guess I will make her happy and put something on here. The girls are almost
4 and a half years old already. They are doing so many new things. They both know how to spell their name and can write it. They know almost all their numbers by site, spell out pretty much any word that is in all capital letters(especially stop signs), they sing me new songs that their grandma Diane teaches them at daycare, they are getting pretty good at playing the wii(they love the dance one their grandma Ellen has), they are always asking if it is warm enough to go out and ride their 4wheelers, and they have started helping Ryan out in the shop more. Their favorite thing lately is to help me make lunch and dinner, they pick out their plates, the vegetable and fruit they want and help me with pretty much every part of preparing the main dish except using the stove. I only hope this continues as they get older:) They are still taking dance lessons and have their recital in May, but are also going to dance at the Dogwood festival. They are so excited to start preschool next fall, they don't quite understand the concept of time though.(It's going to be a long 6 months till school starts) The most interesting thing about the girls lately would have to be Jordis' imaginary sister Callie. One day she told me that she has 2 sisters so I asked her what their names were, she told "Elise and Callie". This is what I have learned about Callie in the last 3 weeks: she lives in a pink house with a green roof, her mom drives a red car, she has blond hair(like Jordis), she has a cat named Serafina, she is either 5 or 7 depending on the day, she lives on the lewiston hill, if I asked Jordis when she is coming over she replies "in 4 hours"(every time), she takes dance too, she has an older sister Ariel and a younger sister Areah, and Jordis frequently tells Elise that she is not her sister anymore, only Callie is. I have no idea where she comes up with this stuff. Anytime someone asks Jordis about Callie the story is always the same, kinda weird:)
Well that is all I have for now so hopefully I will update this more often. Hope you all enjoyed!
