Peachy-Girl is becoming quite the writer at school. She's won Author of the Month two years in a row based on her teacher's recommendation. Here's something she wrote recently that impressed me.

I received this book mark from Georgia for Father's Day this year.
The front was cute but the back...

Georgia is funny, even when she isn't trying to be. Below is Georgia's Mother's Day book she gave to Laura yesterday. She didn't waste any time innocently calling out her mother's love of wine. Also, Georgia has a little bit of work to do on her understanding of height and weight in terms of numbers, but a 40 ft tall Laura is a good guess!!

One of the best things about Christmas is making a Christmas card; at least it used to be. This last year we jumped the shark. We went overboard. We doubled-down on levity. Why is the chicken shooting a laser at our cat? I guess the cat was too far away for the chicken to peck it to death.
We had a couple of ideas but nothing really stuck. From there I just decided that it would be best to include some content that revealed the additions we made to our household in 2013. That being...chickens. So originally they were just going to grow in size and chase us down the street. The laser coming out of the chicken eye was a last minute addition.
It was the first year that Photoshop was introduced into the mix. As a traditionalist, that concerns me. Nevertheless, it's a fun challenge. For 2014 we're going to have to scale back some...go old school with it. No Photoshop.
Parker is a terrible shot. Actually let me restate that. Parker is a terrible shot unless she's shooting at asian woman who's pictures are in the newspaper. She couldn't hit a target but once she cut out a picture of an asian woman from the Ventura County Star she couldn't miss.

December 6 was Uncle Geoff's 45th birthday. Parker made a very telling birthday card for her uncle. Included in this card was a picture of her and Geoff running beneath a rainbow. Also, she shared some thoughts with her uncle that just leaves me brimming with pride.
Yes, dad is proud.
Daughter #1 is officially a chip off the ol' block! Now it's time to focus on Georgia.
All my years of sarcasm and satire with the kids are finally paying off!
