Monster Quotes Round 2

It has been one whole year and a half since I've posted a quotes blog!
So here comes some of my favorite Lily Monster quotes!
(Stolen from my Facebook pages)
Upon meeting our brand new neighbor...

 "It's nice to meet you. My name is Lilyanna. Everyone calls me Lily though. Or Monster Lily. Addison says she's going to call you Big Mama cause you're black like big Mama on my cartoons!"
Lily: My sisters just want to copy everything I do all the time.

Me: You just have to stop being so cool.

Lily: I can't help that.
Lily: I'm in a magical time machine!

Me: Get out of the porta potty Lily.
I can't even help it! He walked into my class and I was like... Woah. Then I gave him those googly eyes. -Lilyanna aka flirt master
When I chase boys I take my sweater off. It gives me freer movement and makes me faster. -Lilyanna
Lily: How do I earn my toy back Dad?

Dad: You must retrieve a single tear drop from Chuck Norris.
Lily: Mama Velvet, I'm gonna draw a mirror on this chalkboard and you're gonna write who's the fairest of them all. You get to pick one. Me, Addison or Scarlett.

Mama Velvet: Lily, I'm not going to pick who I think is prettiest because it's impossible. I think all of you are beautiful!

Lily: That's ok. We all know it's me anyway.
MaMa Velvet: Lily, will you please buckle your sister.

Lily: Okay. It's only because she's so cute and pretty though.
Lily: Do you think Santa will bring me presents this year?

Mama Velvet: Well, have you been good this year?

Lily: Not really... I've got some time to turn it around though! That and my grandparents will get me presents because they love me anyway!
This kid slays me constantly.

Addison and Milestones

Miss Addi-Bo-Baddi posing for her yearly photo!
Last years portrait was taken at our old apartment and this years portrait was taken in the dining room of our new home!
So many things have changed for our family this year and the changes in Addison have been many as well!
She's a rambunctious, sweet, demanding, gentle hearted, sharing, obstinate 4 year old.
She is VERY excited about starting preschool this fall as well as getting to play soccer.
She loves to quote Wreck It Ralph with her big sister.
She loves her new big girl room, but still sneaks into Mommy and Daddy's room for some sweet snuggles every night.
Her fear of pools and sprinklers has vanished in place of fins and flippers! She is a true water baby!
She has a wicked sweet tooth and a never ending stomach. The girl is hungry for days.
She still loves dresses and playing dress up (as witnessed above!) and will throw a massive fit if I come anywhere near her with jeans.
She is still Daddy's little Addi-Doo. So much so that Miss Scarlett refers to her as 'Doo'.
If she doesn't know how to respond to a question she promptly opens her mouth and sticks out her tongue. She may even wag it at you before promptly exiting the room.
She loves to tell Mommy stories in the van.
She LOVES the dentist.
She HATES the 'Sal-a-vation army' and Home Depot. Heck, lets lump Lowes in this category also.
She is sweet and sour all wrapped up in a beautiful little lady I get to call mine!
Love you my sweet Addison!

Things That Make You Go BOOM!

Mr. Harriot and I just purchased our very own HOUSE!
I feel like Oprah with the girls.
You get a room, and you get a room, and you get a room!
The last two and a half weeks have been a whirlwind of cleaning, painting, moving, organizing and FUN!
In the midst of all of this we celebrated 4th of July with some wonderful friends, family, food, beer and fireworks!
House pictures and the kiddos coming tomorrow!
So much to share I don't even know where to start!
