all about allie

Allie loves...

crafting, helping, laughing, playing mommy, dress-up, tent-making, reading, lip stick, umbrellas, perfume, frilly dresses, tomatoes, raw carrots, gum drops, lollipops, popsicles, singing, kisses, swinging, teaching, tickles, Bible time...

Most commonly used phrase...
"For real?!?"

Allie is enjoying first grade although sometimes she'd "rather just play".

She is doing excellent in reading.  She has started reading her Bible every morning by herself before school this week and is surprising me with the words she can read without help.

She is doing the Abeka video school again this year.  It has been a huge blessing since Jeremy and I are still in language school.  I feel like she is getting a quality education that I wouldn't be able to give her at this point in our lives.

Random conversations with Allie...

Allie said, "Mommy, I would like to see what "dog" tastes like.  Just a little bite like the size of a brownie.  But we don't really know how to kill a dog to eat it, do we?

Mommy said, "Yeah, maybe one day when we go to Korea we can see what dog tastes like, they eat it a lot there."

Allie, "Hey, that would be a good idea!"


Allie loves to dress up and play princess.  The other day she was all dressed up in her princess garb and with her "scepter" (really just a stick) tapped me on the head and said,

"I now crown you princess mommy".
Mommy exclaimed, "Wow, I'm a princess now?"
Allie questioned, "Would you like to be a princess?"
Mommy sighed, "Only if I can still be your mommy."
Allie decided, "Nah, you don't need to be a princess, you're prettier than a princess."

So sweet.  

It made me smile. 

I love her. 


  1. Wow!! She's not a toddler anymore!! So grown up and beautiful:)

  2. Maybe she can come visit her friend Khloe' in Pohnpei and taste dog then. :)

  3. She is pretty! Any tips on Abeka video school? We will be doing that in a few years. Right now, I am teaching Seth Kindergarten with Abeka, but it will come to a point when he will do the videos.

  4. That picture of her (from Omar) is stunning! It seems like yesterday she was crawling around the living room during our piano lesson!

  5. What a sweet post! She is so sweet and so beautiful! I love her gentle and sweet spirit :) You guys are doing a great job!

  6. Oh, my sweet Allie! Growing up so fast! And as always making lovely comments about her mommy which by the way are true! She is getting so tall and pretty. Miss them babies so much!

  7. Aw! What a cutie! She sounds like a lot of fun to have around, ha ha! :)

  8. Tell Allie her "Chocolate Milk Friend" Sydney has the very same sweet yellow dress! She's adorable! Debbie Rinehart
