Hip Homeschool Hop: November 30, 2010


Tiny Talk Tuesday/Wow! How they've changed!

It is driving me crazy that I can't find some of the comments I wrote down.  I debated waiting to post, but decided I might as well post now and if I find the comments I will just share them next week.  So here are the ones I found:

One of the songs we sing almost every night at Bible Time is "Climb, climb up sunshine mountain."  The girls take turns on daddy's lap as he does the motions (alot faster than we are supposed to do them).  Then at the end when they are pointing at themselves he tends to tickle them because he has a hold of their hands.  The one night this past week Tabitha told daddy, "I don't want to laugh because I'm gonna choke."

Last night we were going in to brush teeth before bed and I was singing some silly song about going to brush our teeth.  I wasn't really paying attention to what the girls were saying.  Suddenly Tabitha stated, "I repeated you." I asked her to explain what she meant and she said, "I copied you."  I realized then that she had been singing what I had been singing.

This morning Amelia had gotten her shirt on all by herself.  Tabitha looked at her and said, "She needs something to cover her legs, cause that's not modest." (she really emphasized "not modest")

I walked into the kitchen this morning where Amelia was already seated at the counter where the cereal and bowls were set out.  I noticed she had poured her own Life cereal in her bowl.  She said, "I poured this for my-self." I wish I could explain better how she emphasized the "my" in "myself." It was so cute.

I love that I am able to post things Amelia says now.  I was really looking at the pictures I posted today for Muffin Tin Monday and I realized Amelia has changed so much in the past year.  So, I went into my pictures to take a look at just how much they have changed.  Thought I would share some pictures to compare.

Muffin Tin Monday: Oo

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

As there was no theme this week, I decided to use our letter of the week: O

Octopus hot dog, carrot o's and olives (which they don't seem to like anymore but I keep trying), O shaped cheddar and monteray jack cheese, spaghetti o's, piece of omelet, mandarin oranges, golden Oreo.

They liked their octopus hot dogs. They ended up asking for ketchup and ranch dressing to dunk them in.  Though the oranges were the first things eaten.  They did a pretty good job this week.

We Play and Mommy and Me Monday

The importance of PLAY is not lost on me.  I know most of the time I am posting about the lessons that we do each week.  I just found a new-to-me link up called We Play and decided I wanted to start posting the fun things the girls do during the week that are not planned out.

We Play

I thought it was so cute that Tabitha was "reading" to Amelia in Amelia's chair. Yes, Amelia is on Tabitha's lap.

We decided to get out the musical "instruments."

Tins make great drums!

In the next picture Tabitha was copying the patterns I was making.  She was doing a great job actually.

Tabitha and Amelia took turns taking pictures.  Mommy got a turn to be in the pictures

Sort of. Amelia needs a little more practice with picture taking.

so I'm also linking up to:

Tiny Tot Time

I wanted to share some Tiny Tot time pictures with my Tot School/Preschool Corner post, but the computer was being extremely slow and I decided to wait to post them separately.

Hannah is 7.5 months old.
Tabitha was singing the ABC's to Hannah and rocking her back and forth.

Hannah is learning to play with a ball. Batting it around.

Posing with it

Holding it

I guess if I play with her piggies, she can play with mine.

Yes she is teething.  She got her third tooth (upper right front) yesterday.

I just loved how sweet this picture looks.

Daddy's Time "Friday"

So, technically I am a day or so late to be posting this. I have to admit, I forgot which day of the week Patricia over at My Tot Learning Time was posting this.

Here are some special times the girls had with their special daddy.

Watching TV at Grandma's house when we visited last week for an early Thanksgiving.

Time for some rough housing.  She's getting a little big for "super baby!"

Amelia's turn

Hannah watching on.  Who knows, maybe she is wondering when her turn will be.

How about now!!

Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. 

Thanksgiving dinner

I just shared this on my photo challenge pose, but I couldn't help myself, I had to share it again.

What special moments have you captured of your children with their daddy?  Head on over to Patricia's blog to check out other's posts and/or to link up.
