Elefun!

Annabelle played this Elefun game at a friend's house last week and she loved it! I heard about a $5 coupon at coupons.com so we decided to get one for Annabelle. She especially likes it when Josh holds her arms and swings her around as they try and catch them together. These videos aren't that great and they really don't show how funny it is to see in person, but you can get the basic idea.

Did you notice the potty in the background of the videos? Annabelle is doing SO GREAT with potty training. I don't want to go saying that it's a done deal because I don't want to jinx myself, but we're getting there. She has gone entire days without a single accident! And she hasn't had an accident during nap time yet! I'm not brave enough to try night time yet, but that will come. I'm so proud of her. Today we went to the post office in big girl underwear and she was so proud of herself for staying dry. I'm not going to say that it's been the most fun week of my life, especially since I hate being stuck in the house for days on end, but it had to be done.
And just another random bit of pictures from this last week. What do you do to keep the cobwebs down when you have high 2-story ceilings with a chandelier in the entry and a fan/light in the center of the room? Well......you tape yourself a little duster on the top of your broom like this.
Then you have your handy husband haul in his super duper adjustable ladder and climb on up. Annabelle couldn't miss out on the action. She nearly had a meltdown while she waited for her turn.


What a great little helper she is.

we love that game (at grandmas house) and that's great about potty training some kids are just easier than others so if she's doing this well i think it will stick. and great idea about dusting i always look at the chandelier in our new house and wonder how i'll ever dust it!

How fun! I don't know if it is my parent's computer, but I couldn't see the video. I'm glad you went and got it for her. It was so much fun watching her play it. Great Idea on dusting your ceiling! It might come in handy one day.
