Shopping and My First Flat Tire!

Today Linlee and I met Anne and Rachel at the mall. (Linlee has no preschool this week or next.) I only brought along my small, inferior camera and did not get great pictures. But here they are… Getting ready for lunch… In the play area (the girls were in the same spot for maybe two …

The Tree

Blog reader, Sue, remembered that I mentioned this beautiful tree last year, which sits beyond our yard: The powers that be have been digging up the field behind our house for the last year. I assume the plans are for more houses, but they have put up a rock wall at an odd angle into …

Linlee’s Cookies

Another day of snowing off and on today. As we’ve no place to go and we are stuck in doors, it seemed that making oatmeal raisin cookies was in order for the afternoon. I have to say that Linlee did a great job of baking! She liked helping mommy and mémé pour ingredients into the …

This is spring?

Yep, that’s snow falling around that pretty, blossoming cherry tree out behind our house. It snowed like that most of yesterday. The snow never really stuck (thank heavens!), but it did make one want to curl up in front of the fire place with a mug of cocoa instead of putting on a spring jacket …

Now I’m “mommy.”

Today Linlee started calling me “mommy” instead of “mama.” Where did that come from? It’s so sweet, but it’s also less baby and more little girl. Boohoo! I think I will cry my eyes out the day she starts calling me simply “mom,” but hopefully I’ve got a while before I need to worry about …

Making Progress

Today Linlee counted backwards from five to one. Pretty impressive for a three year old, I think. (She can count forwards from one to twenty.) One of her new words is “tee-wer,” (teacher). Linlee adores her teacher to the moon and back. In fact, I’ve noticed over the last week or so that Mrs. Rose …

A blast from the past…

I was clearing out some old files and came across this picture of Rachel and Linlee. It was the day they met. Linlee was just eleven months old and had been home from China for about a week. Rachel was fifteen months old and had been home for about two months. Rachel and Linlee… Rachel …

Linlee and the Chocolate Bunny

“My mama knows that I only eat peanut butter toast, but the Easter Bunny left me this brown thing to taste…” “Hmm, what do I think?” “YUMMMMMY!” (It’s so good, look how she has even clenched her little fist.) “Thanks, Easter Bunny!”

Happy Easter!

I didn’t get the greatest pictures today, but it’s still worth posting a few scenes from Linlee’s Easter morning… Linlee’s basket: Big fun hunting for more eggs in the living room and putting them in her basket: “Hello little chick!” Waddling duck from Grandma Young… Eating some Easter loot… “Open, please…” One of the treats …

Easter Egg Hunt

This morning we took Linlee to a local park for an Easter egg hunt. It was a bit chilly, but luck was with us and it did not rain! Here is our adventure (get ready for lots of pictures)… The park was very busy and Linlee started off feeling shy… Putting first egg in basket… …
