Bonjour-fancy for hello!I LOVE Fancy Nancy books! It is a line of children's books that are adorable, charming, and a fun way to learn new words. I love french themed anything, so when I found Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy, I bought it right away. The illustrations are beautiful, the writing whimsical and 'chic!' I finally found some new Fancy Nancy books yesterday and excitedly read them to Peyton. The newest one is called Fancy Nancy's Favorite Fancy Words. It might be the teacher in me, but I adore this book. Ooh la la!-fancy for "Look! How wonderful!" Nancy says that using a fancy word in a sentence, is like adding sprinkles to vanilla ice cream!!!!!!!!! LOVE THAT! Yes, it is the teacher in me, but it is great for teaching new $100 words for writing!
Do you think I could get paid for the review I just gave this book?!!
Other books in the series include...Fancy Nancy, Fancy Nancy: Bonjour Butterfly! Check them out...Kelle-I know this is a series after your own heart. Jenn, FINALLY MORE FANCY NANCY!!!
I know I am being a bit...zany-fancy for very silly but I am a bit of a xenophile-fancy for a person who loves foreign people and foreign things! LOL

"BOOM," is what Beck's says whenever he hits the ball or means to hit the ball. He is constantly running around the house with his club and saying, "gup ball." Needless to say, daddy is very happy about this!!!!! Peyton LOVES to go golfing too! She especially likes to put on her very own golf shoes and drive the golf cart!
Okay, I know my face looks smooshed in this picture, but I don't care because...My kids are fighting over gets to sit in my lap!!!!!! I LOVE THAT! My friend Jenn, who has two super sweet kids Jordan and Katie, told me that sometimes the two of them argue over who gets to sit on her lap. I mean these kids must really ADORE their mother if they are trying to win lap time with their mommy. They really do adore her, I mean what is not to love. Secretly, I remember thinking to myself, I really hope that my kids 'fight' for my lap one day. Well, I am happy to report that it has finally happened. Mind you, Jordan and Katie are older and I think that is even more impressive, but I'll take whatever I get. Poor Jeff looked on with an empty lap, but he knew how happy I was!!! I wish you all full laps tonight!
Last but not least, American Idol night(s) at the Darwish house is very exciting. We very much look forward to it, we let the kids stay up later to watch it, we make comments, we judge, we critique,...and YES, we vote! We love this family time and if you look closely at the picture, Peyton is sitting next to a mound, not a pile, but a mound of laundry that needs to be folded. Yes, I neglect the house on American Idol nights and I wouldn't have it any other way:):) GO David Archuleta!!
