Happy Halloween!

We stayed home tonight, passing out candy to all of the trick-or-treaters. However, Linlee received a Halloween package from her Uncle Joe and Aunt Connie today which contained a chocolate wrapped “eyeball.” Linlee grabbed the eyeball, ran to her mirror and held it up against her eye. Pretty cute! Then I helped her unwrap the …

Yakima!

While most couples share a night of passion to make a baby, Rob and I drove three hours to the city of Yakima to turn in a completed homestudy and to be fingerprinted. (Romantic, isn’t it?) We decided to make the drive last night so that we could spend the night in Yakima and be …

Trip to the Outlet Mall

Anne and I took (drug) the girls shopping this morning. We had fun! I hope they did. Linlee looks really excited to be shopping! Pretty Rachel is ready to roll! Now, who is going to drive? Lunch makes everyone happy!

My “moment” with Linlee

Yesterday Rob was wiping down Linlee after her meal. He has this little routine where he wipes her hands and face and then he pretends to wipe her ears and her belly button and so on. He is a silly daddy. As he started goofing around, I swear Linlee looked over at me like, “Oh …

Costume Party!

Today was Linlee’s big day to dress up for Halloween. (She is not going trick-or-treating this year, but she got to dress up and go to her Little Gym costume party.) I have to say, Linlee was a really good sport! I thought she was going to object to every aspect of the costume, from …

Thanks for the help, Linlee!

Today Linlee found a plastic plug that goes in an electrical socket (the kind for baby-proofing the house). She promptly came into the kitchen, stepped on the pedal that opens the trash can and threw it away. Then she ran out of the kitchen. I didn’t even know that she knew how to open the …

Mandarin Oranges

Linlee slurps mandarin oranges down so fast that she ends up out of breath. I can’t think of any other food she does that with. “Hmm, I might like some more…” “MORE!!!” “Mmm…” “Good to the last slurp!”

Too many toys!

This is the work of one , small two year old… (Click on the picture to see the entire mess.) I’ve been a slacker mom as far as getting Linlee to help me pick up her toys. She will put away one toy and then sit on the couch and watch me put away the …

Not so gorgeous day…

What happened?  Yesterday was the most unbelievably beautiful autumn day I can remember and now this?  In fact, yesterday was weird.  It actually got up to 75º (breaking a record) and I have no clue when it cooled off.  We still had our screen door open at TEN last night.  Unheard of in October!  But …

Gorgeous Day!

This morning I made a quick trip to Costco for Halloween candy (to pass out). For the first time, Linlee was keenly aware of the toys as we strolled up and down that isle. She has seemed so oblivious of her surroundings in the past that it was a surprise to me when she leaned …
