I hope you enjoy seeing the simple things through Emily's eyes.  Keep in mind, she is only 4, so I typed the wording just as she said it.  This was so much fun for us to do together.  I have a feeling that she's going to want to do this again. 

For Today - May 7, 2010 (date typed)

Outside my window...the sun is shining & our trees are blowing. I see our trees.

I am thinking...about how much I love Mommy, & how much I love God. 

I am thankful for... my Mommy. I am thankful for our house.  I am thankful for our car.  I am thankful for everything God gives  us.

I am remembering...when I went to Chuckie Cheese & had fun with Mommy.  I played an animal game & a bee game.

On my mind...I can't get out of my mind what my special surprise is tomorrow.  I think it is dino museum or dino park, but it's a surprise, so I don't know.  You can't know what surprises are, because if you do, then it's not a surprise.  Mommy won't give us more hints.  She just says we are going to have lots of fun & love it.

I am pondering these words..."I love you Emily."  I love thinking about those words that Mommy always says to me.

From the learning rooms...I am learning my school that Mommy teaches me & Elliot.  I am learning to take pictures & movies. Mommy is teaching me.  I want my own camera to take lots of pictures.

From the kitchen...Mommy fixes us good smoothies & good food.  She is so cute, & I love her.  I help her everyday.  She teaches me about food.  She teaches me to eat healhty.  I don't like junk food, because it's not healthy. Elliot likes junk food, but Mommy won't let him eat it.  I always tell him that he better not like it or he won't be healthy.  Elliot don't like me telling him that.   

I am wearing...shorts & a shirt that has hearts & rainbows all over them.  I love hearts & rainbows.  I love so many things. It's hard to just choose one thing to love, because I love everything that God made.  He made everything.

I am creating...I am drawing a bug, because when I was looking outside I thought 'Hmmm, I'm going to draw some bugs. All kinds of bugs.'  I don't like bugs, but I was drawing a field of bugs.  Even spiders, yuck!  I was drawing one.

I am our special surprise when we wake up.  It's going to be fun.  I am going to hug Mommy when I know what my special surprise is, & I'm going to tell her that I love it.  Mommy always plans special surprises for us.

I am reading...Mommy reads me books, because I can only read c - a - t, cat - d - o -g, dog - M-o-m-m-y, Mommy, E-m-i-l-y, Emily - D-a-d-d-y, Daddy - E-l-l-i-o-t, Elliot, P-r-i-n-c-e-s-s, Princess, - G-o-d-, God, & some other words that Mommy teaches me.

I am hoping...that I will like my special surprise.

I am hearing...Mommy ask me these questions & me answering them.  I like to answer these questions.  I love my Mommy.

Around the house...I see Mommy.  I see bears.  Our house is so beautiful. I have a Princess room. God blesses us.

One of my favorite things...Mommy.  I love my Mommy so much.  I love hugging her. I love my LillyTrixieLilly, but I call her Lilly for short.

A few plans for the rest of the week...go to my surprise tomorrow, play with Mommy, play with Tinkerbell, eat, bath, sleep, brush my teeth, kiss Mommy, watch Simon.  Simon is handsome. I hope Crystal wins because she has a little baby, & I like babies.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...I like to lick my bowl when I have white sauce (Alfredo) on my pasta.  I don't like that red sauce because it tastes too spicy to me.  Mommy has to clean my face when I'm done, because it gets on my face & on my nose sometimes.  Mommy tells me that I can only lick my pasta bowl when I am home, & not when we eat out. I have to use my spoon to scrap it up when we eat out, but I want to lick it because I love it & can't get it all when I use a spoon.
