My Favorite Food

Jess is only staying at my house one day a week now, thank goodness. Her dad's girlfriend gets to put up with her the other five days. Just kidding, I love my Jessie. Anyways, since I have my free time back to do all the wonderful things I do, I remembered I don't have anything to do. So I (well, Kit) took some photos of me with the best food in the world: PEANUT BUTTER!

It's so smooth and sticky and creamy, melt-in-your-mouth perfection. Plus it's good with practically anything. Besides eating it alone, I love it with graham crackers or apples.
I'd eat peanut butter for every meal if I could. Peanut butter and banana for breakfast; peanut butter and brown sugar sandwich for lunch; peanut butter and waffles for dinner. I got a questions for any dollies from other countries. Is PB common/popular where you live, or is this mostly an American staple?

I almost forgot about the best PB food: Reese's! Best candy in the entire world.
Okay, I know that picture is beyond stupid, but roll with it.

Anyone else have a food obsession? 'Cause if you do, I have an assignment for you. If you're like me and never have anything going on in your life and don't have anything to post on your blog, make a post of you with (in, eating, whatever) your favorite food.

I'm going Insane!

While hiking with Jess and her dad, Mother found out that Casey was looking for a nanny for Jess on the days his girlfriend couldn't watch her. Of course Mother volunteered. Jess has been over every day this week. I'm going freakin' out of my mind! Don't get me wrong, I love Jess, but I've never spent a lot of time with her without Jocelyn and when she is around JJ she's more outgoing and less whiny. Luckily she and Gillian have found out they have some things in common and that's been keeping Jess out of my hair. But I still can't wait until her dad's girlfriend can watch her again. Today is the first day I've been able to sneak a few minutes to get on my computer. I think I hear her coming. Ugh.

Hiking with Jess

So yesterday I finally got to go hiking with Jess and her dad. I don't think Jess was too thrilled, she hates getting dirty and sweaty. She was terrified the whole time of losing that dang monkey of her's. I told her she should have left it in the car. "But she will get too hot," she informed me. Nine-year-olds, what can you do with them?

I still haven't figured out if this is cool or just awkward. When we stopped to have a snack, Mother and Jess' dad, Casey, started talking about when they were in school, like a hundred years ago. Turns out they had dated in high school for, like, two years. Of course I had to ask what happened. I imagined it was something horrible, but then figured it probably wasn't since they are friends now. And I was right. They just graduated and Casey went to medical school. I don't think Jess was too happy to learn about this. She's been pretty protective (uptight) lately about her father dating. I thought everything was good with her, but I guess not.

I found this little hole on our hike. Looked like a rabbit had used it to take a dust bath (do rabbits even do that? They do now). Anyways.
Casey told us to climb the biggest tree we could find. Well, there were bigger ones, but Jess was getting crabby, so I just picked this one.A beautiful picture of me, just 'cause I know you blog reader(s) can't get enough of seeing my perfect mug.

Playing Outside

On Monday Mother made all us sisters play outside together. I guess it was fun, I wouldn't have had anything else to do anyway. JJ was going to a BBQ with her family. Jess was gone on a weekend trip with her dad and his girlfriend*.

*I made a huge error in one of my previous posts. Jess' mom died a few years ago. Her dad's girlfriend is a teacher at our school. I am such an idiot.

First we played catch. I'm wearing my new hoodie. Mother had a cow about me possibly getting it dirty. I did not. Ignore the black "cow" (wow, I just used "cow" twice in the same paragraph and neither relating to the actual animal. I am awesome) in the background. Nellie opted out of playing any of the games. She's not particularly athletic.
Next we played soccer. Every time Annie ran towards the ball she tripped and fell on her butt. Little sisters, such clutzos.
Kit and I went rock climbing much to Mother's dismay. She was afraid we would fall, but she was the one who almost did! And she always forgets where she put the camera. She worries way too much about us getting dirty as well. After we came inside, she gave us all a good cleaning even though we didn't even get Dirty (don't ask why I just capitalized that, I'm just that awesome).
Elizabeth and I found a nice place to sit and enjoy the fresh air. Mother was even more freaked about us sitting there. It's hard to tell but it's a fairly steep drop and it's all wet and marshy below. I wanted to get closer to the edge, but of course I was told no.
I don't talk about Gillian much, so here's a picture of her picking flowers. Of course every time Mother went to snap the picture, Gillian fell flat on her face to freak Mother out. We are so not aloud to do anything fun.
And you know the best part of the outing? Elizabeth lost her shoe. Mother totally went Jack Bauer on her and made her look for it herself with only one shoe on. Luckily it was found not far from the house. How does one lose their shoe and not know it? We are just that amazing. Or weird, depending on your view of things.
