New Year’s Eve

We are spending New Year’s Eve at home; no big surprise. (I’m too old to enjoy staying up until midnight now anyway.) Besides, Rob and I got to have a movie date yesterday afternoon while Linlee had a play date with Rachel (thanks, Anne!). I’m happy to snuggle on our cozy couch with my family …

Sleeping and eating…

Linlee is no longer interested in either. Very much. She is surviving on fruit and peanut butter toast. Almost everything else is rejected. This is frustrating to me as it was only last year that she was happily eating everything I offered her. My child would gobble up broccoli and green beans and chicken or …

Linlee and Rachel

Anne’s daughter, Rachel, is spending the day with us again. I have photos documenting the girls’ morning together. (I’m going to put the camera away this afternoon so that they aren’t being pestered by the constant flashing.) Nap time was not the horror of the last visit. I was ready with a plan; each toddler …

Random Shots

Sometimes Linlee has the most calm, thoughtful look. I think she is an old soul. What could such a little girl be thinking about so seriously? Still fascinated with the Wonderland Express… This next picture is only significant in that I had just cleaned up Linlee’s puzzle and bucket of vehicles. She ran up, dumped …

A Hershey’s Kiss

Linlee’s ornament below opens up to hold a little surprise. I forgot to open it with her yesterday. This evening, I showed her how it opens and inside she discovered a Hershey’s Kiss…

Scenes from Christmas Day (part two)

A magnetic letter board… Kissing her little penguin that waddles and squeaks… Linlee loved this gift from Rob to me (a Thomas Kincaid Wonderland Express). She is signing “train.” This little doll was my favorite gift to Linlee… And here my daughter is pushing it away!

Scenes from Christmas Day (part one)

We’re doing Christmas in parts today. So here is part one. Cute little face… Look at all that loot under the tree… Carolyn and Jim Young Linlee shows Uncle Joe her “bucket of vehicles.” Cousin Shannon Rob, Glen, Shannon and Jim…

Cousins

Linlee met her cousins Glen and Shannon today (Rob’s sister’s children). She and Shannon are really enjoying each other. In fact, Linlee gave Shannon a kiss, which is very rare for her to do with unfamiliar people. I thought this picture was so sweet of Rob holding Linlee and Shannon’s hands. I’m disappointed it turned …

Dessert!

While the rest of us enjoyed a Lindsor Torte for dessert, Linlee had a dish of “keem” (whipped cream).

We’re still here!

I’ve been busy getting ready for a house full of Youngs. Aside from Rob needing to wrap some presents, I think we’re good to go. I did have to venture out to the grocery store the last two days for “amateur weekend.” (That’s where people who don’t normally cook visit the grocery store on holidays. …
