A Visit from Uncle Brice and Aunt Cynthia

So after a successful nap time in her big girl bed, Sophia awoke to find her Uncle Brice and Aunt Cynthia waiting to play with her. They were eating the yummy apple pie that she made in her kitchen, in her Tinkerbell costume of course. It was so funny. She would fly around the house making these swooshing noises (sound effects).
Costume change! Then it was time to put on her princess costume, complete with a UNT baseball cap that she borrowed from Uncle Brice.

Then is was story time. Sophia recently got some new books from a book order at school and is obsessed with reading them.
Then it was coloring time! Aunt Cynthia was very impressed with Sophia's knowledge of her colors.Sophia is really into knowing the difference between light blue, dark blue, peach vs. orange, tan vs. brown, etc. Sophia is SO into colors right now. Russell was telling me the other day, on the way to PK, how Sophia was commenting on how the sky was so beautiful with the oranges and the purples.And she's really into matching/coordinating colors too. For example, this morning, she didn't want to wear the clips in her hair because they didn't match her outfit. And she's also starting to pick out outfits, like the one she's wearing in these pics. She picked it out. For the most part, she coordinates her outfits pretty well.

Then Aunt Cynthia made an origami frog that jumps when you hit it with a pencil, just right.

"Just right" being the key words.

Sophia had a little trouble getting it to jump. But Aunt Cynthia was a pro.
Then it was time to go to bed (overnight) for the first time in her big girl bed.
Once again, I'm happy to report that she stayed in her bed until I came to get her in the morning. Once again, Sophia amazes me.

That's the best! When they do what you WANT them to do but aren't exactly certain they will. Yay Sophia! Love Aunt Cynthia's little jumping frog... I can imagine it was hard to get just right. Another fun afternoon with Uncle Brice and Aunt Cynthia... I bet they are two of Sophia's favorite people.
