I Don't Understand

Today Rachel turned three. We had her birthday party last Saturday because today my parents and my grandma are on a plane bound for Maui, so they aren't here to celebrate today. We (inadvertently) saved one of her birthday presents for today and sang the birthday song to her and gave her this present.

After this we stuffed all the punks in the van (I think that Pioneer Woman's description of the kids is rubbing off on me) and headed out to look at some houses. Rachel had her little birthday gift with her, which was this neat little marker holder with a pad of paper.

We pulled into the driveway of one of the houses to see the back yard and as Del was backing out of the drive way he yelled, "OH MY GOSH!!"

I thought we were going to run into someone or run over someone or the sky was falling or something like that but when I turned around, this is what I saw, only she was fast asleep in her car seat.

I guess three-year-olds aren't to be trusted with their own set of markers yet.

Just explain to her that most females find a unibrow undesirable!! How funny! I only let Ethan use markers in my line of sight, otherwise marker ends up all sorts of places other than paper. I don't know what it is about markers. Crayons don't seem to hold the same "draw on everything" appeal!

I needed a good laugh. She looks so proud of herself! Love it! Maybe cause it didn't happen to me. Thanks for sharing the smiles!

ROFLOL!! Well, this HAS happened to me! I just think it means they are artistic, Joanna! LOL ;)

Must mean something good or else I'm worried. None of the other kids did that. Just goes to show you that you learn something new with every kid and no matter how many you have, you're not an expert yet.

Decided she needed a unibrow, huh? That's so funny. I was thinking about getting Anja some of those fat markers for tiny hands, but this makes me think twice. Maybe if she's supervised VERY WELL... :)
