Ode to the wigga sistas!

This is my new track suit....ammi has come across this brand "Krawlers", they have these great little padded knees just for cuties like me as we make our way about town. Plus, they come in handy for hip hop dancing. Now she's on the prowl for anything with their symbol on it. This post is my shout out to a good friend, and to show off how cute I am.



"You gotta fight.....for your right....to PAAAARRRRDAAAYYYY"


Peace out, yo

I just love memaw's and papa's house

Now that I'm mobile I can explore my surroundings much more efficiently. This past weekend we took a quick trip to memaw and papa's house and I had a blast!




Ammi and Papa thought they hid the candles....NOPE, I found them within 2.5 seconds.


Mema and Papa saw this and thought I'd enjoy it, and boy were they right. There are so many surprises, papa was nice enough to come down and help me fish through them all. What fun!


With the Cardinals out of the World Series I've lost interest in the post season, but my family are all pretty big fans of baseball regardless...come on guys, there must be something better on!


Let's see......ooohhhh, Miss Congeniality....one of my favs! (to the left me, you can see...I don't like things on shelves or tables)

Twice my age

Well, I've hit that mark, I'm now as old outside as was inside, and I've grown just as much. Sadly, still lacking in the hair area....but it's all good. I even have 2 1/3 teeth!


I realize it doesn't make sense to wear a sweater and not socks, but my feet were HOT!



In another dress from Aunty Shebana (doesn't she have great taste?) And, yes, that is a bhindi on my head....representin' the south side!!! (of asia that is)


Ammi wasn't quite ready, but the lady took the pic and everyone loved it....yeeehawwww!



I can slober on command now....just say the word, but in Urdu, cause I don't know "kiss" in English.



My first Halloween costume....I'm supposed to be a monkey, but ammi says those ears just make me look like Yoda. Cute I am hmmmm.


The original of this picture was actually a goof on the camera lady, but ammi loved it and fixed it up......she likes my eyes...and that look of gettin' into trouble :)

da da da da da, I'm lovin' it

Well, they aren't the usual organic multi-grain that I get at home.....but they are pretty good. Ammi took me to McDonalds for breakfast the other day, and it's not all bad. I had plain pancakes, I ate two all by myself!


Let's see, piece of pancake, piece of pancake, piece of pancake......where's the butter and syrup??



You know.....these aren't half bad!


WHAT? Do you mind, I'm trying to shovel...err, umm, I mean eat.


Hey, where did everything go? No bother, I seem to have a few pieces stuck to my bib....mmmm, tasty!

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

Well, the weather has finally gotten FRIGGIN COLD! but this past weekend was very nice. I finally got to wear my nifty sweater from Aunty Shebana in the UK. It was fun to play in the leaves.




Let me get this straight.....these fall from the trees and turn yellow and brown. Hmmm, guess it's not too strange, daddy's hair falls from his head and turns grey.....



Okayyyyy, waiting........geesh, these things don't fall very fast.


Okay, okay, I get it...we pile them up and then play in them. They are kind of crunchy though, makes me bum itch!


WHERE DID THIS THING FALL FROM?????

The one and only.....ME

I seeeeee youuuuuuuu.


I wonder.........



What do you think?


SEE YA!

A fall day

Saturday was nice by mid-morning. We had breakfast at a local joint, (I got to eat a plain pancake!) then we went to the park for a little swinging and people watching. All in all....it was a nice time, I'm glad ammi has the weekends free.



Give me land lots of land......

Sunday was a beautiful day! I was told to stay on the sheet, but c'mon!!!! You can't keep a girl locked up!!!!




That's why she's a speech major

My ma LOVES the camera....but she just doesn't do filming very well. I'd like to show off my mad communication skills.....you may want to flip your monitor.



THUMPER!

Mr. Clyde has this beast they call a dog. She's nice....I'm always trying to get her attention and she just ignores me, NOW she wants play.....great timing canine!

But I'm not tired!

Ammi likes me to go to bed by 8, but there are days I'm not ready and would rather play. Sometimes I win, sometimes I don't. Today was a winner! 8:15 and I'm still clowning around!

Don't worry ammi, someday you'll be in charge.


C'mon, it's just a few more minuets!


It's good to be queen!

Someone fetch me a double soy, sugar free caramel decaf half foam latte'

Well, I finally got my new laptop. It's a sleeker design than the one ammi uses, and it's totally wireless....internet, power....completely free of those pesky cables.




I'm waiting for daddy to log on so we can chat, sometimes he's a little late cause of the connection over there...but don't worry, he'll be here.

Hookah in training

I got a cough a couple of weeks ago, and my doctor has said that I have bronchitis. I didn't care for this "nebulizer" very much, so ammi decided the best time to give me my meds is when I am sleeping. I didn't even notice the machine. If this is anything like that hookah ammi and daddy like, there's no scare of me smoking it! yuk

Ammi's happy day

The Illini beat up on Wisconsin and the Buckeyes swallowed Purdue.......I can see why ammi loves college football.





Where's the volume on this thing, I can't hear the game with all of ammi's cheering and clapping!!!

Another old timey experience

There's no lack of history in the south. Today we went to the heritage festival here in Mt. Vernon. They've built a little village with the actual old buildings from the area. Also, there was all sorts of stuff from "way back when", I think even from 100 years ago when ammi was my age. It was fun, but I'm ready to do something that doesn't involve someone wearing overalls!!




This lady is spinning wool and other fabrics. I wanted to try it, but ammi said that the wool probably wouldn't go through the wheel too well with slobber all over it.




If you're looking for a nice horseshoe, this is the man to see.




Shiny new cars and plastic chairs.....hhhmmmmm.....

Oh, we're not painting?

Berries and cream, berries and cream...I'm a little girl who likes berries and creeeeammmmmmmm.







Today I had organic raspberries and blackberries. Not only are they delightful, they make for great decoration! Needless to say, bath time immediately followed.
