Today Peyton had her first field trip of the year. A city bus is coming to school and Peyton's class is going to get on the bus, watch a video, and then take a drive around the neighborhood. Parents and siblings were welcome. Peyton quickly informed me she didn't want me to go. She told me she was a big girl and that she didn't need me. I told her that Landree might want to ride and Peyton said that was fine, she could sit next to her and hold her hand. I told her that Landree couldn't ride without me and she told me that she guessed Landree wasn't riding. I decided to let her have control today, it really isn't that big of a field trip. However, she was informed that I would be going on the rest of her field trips and she agreed. If this is four, what will fourteen be like. Needless to say she had a great time and was a little upset that they didn't wear seatbelts
We pulled out the aquadoodle today and the girls loved it but there was a space issue. Landree only wanted to draw on the same space Peyton was drawing on or had already drawn on. Peyton informed me that I needed to put an aquadoodle on Landree's christmas list because she needed her own. This is probably the only time that played well together on it.

As you can tell she needed a bath after the cupcake.
For those of you that have been following the saga- hopefully I will have good news after gymnastics tomorrow afternoon. Please pray for Peyton to have the strength to get over her stubbornness and for me not to beat her if she doesn't.

Today we went shopping for Peyton's leotards for gymnastics. Whoohooo I had a 25% off coupon and away we went. Picture the scene, a shop called DanceGear and the four of us in it. Peyton was so excited and thought that every leotard with the number 4 on it would fit. Landree was in heaven and wanted everything in her hands. Brian just meandered through and caught Landree every so often. Peyton was surprisingly not a size 4-6 but needed a 6x-7. I think it must just be the brand because that same size in one of Abby's is huge on Peyton. She has modeled these two suits all over the house. Poor Landree tried taking off her clothes to put one on after we got home. Peyton got two suits today, the American one as she calls it and a pink one. You can't see the front of the pink one because somehow she has gotten confused and thinks twirling is a part of gymnastics.
We did have a food discovery today, Lunchables. I didn't say a healthy food discovery. Peyton always likes to get them when we go to the grocery store. Every once and awhile I will let her have one. Today at the grocery store was no different. She started in for one and I started reading the labels, you know it takes me twice the time to shop because of label reading. Landree could have the mini tacos lunchable as long as I took the cheese packet out. Well of course I bought them each one for lunch. Landree loved it and she acted like she knew it was something special. We were shocked when she knew how to drink a Capri-Sun. That is probably more sugar than she has ever had before. As they were eating them, Peyton pulled out her dessert, Airheads and asked if her head would float to the ceiling like in the commercial. We had to break the news to her that it wouldn't. She was outraged and told us that we needed to call the president and tell him they were lying. She was serious and then proceeded to tell us how serious she was about calling the president because they were liars. She then said something and used air quotes. Air quotes, she's four people. She then asked Brian what air quotes were and I'll tell you watching Brian try to explain that was worth getting out of bed this morning.
