2009 Recap

I was thinking about this last year.  It’s been the hardest emotionally that I can recall, but there have been some really nice moments as well.  Rob and I remain devoted to each other and we are crazy about our little girl.  This is what our year looked like: January: Linlee turns four.  My father, …

Cheesy Smile

I think this is her new favorite smile.  Hey, at least she is trying!  We’ve had a nice couple of days.  Mémé returned to Spokane yesterday and we already miss her.  Nothing else noteworthy to report.

Naughty

Now that Santa is not really paying attention, no sense being nice, right? Oh Linlee, mommy can see what you’re up to… Uh huh… I think she was trying to be so cute that I would forget about the fact that she pushed the stool up to the wall and was playing with something she …

Date Night & Making Eggs

Rob and I got to go out for dinner and a movie last night while my mom is still here.  Seems everyone else had the exact same idea; it was crazy crowded out there!  But we had a really nice time.  At home, Linlee was delightful for my mom.  However, at one point, she disappeared …

Christmas Day

Miss Beauty by the tree. We may have a violinist in our future. Look what Rob spent the day putting together for Linlee: I didn’t happen to get any pictures of Linlee playing in her new kitchen today, but I’m certain that there will be some in the future. Here is the Buche de Noel …

Christmas Morning

Just a few highlights… I was sitting down by the tree handing out presents and taking pictures.  Next year, I want Linlee by the tree so our pictures look more Christmassy.  We’ve had a lovely morning; just perfect.  I will post more pictures later today after my brother arrives.  (Also, Rob has to work on …

Oops!

Today while we adults were eating lunch, I suddenly heard paper rustling out by the Christmas tree.  Uh oh.  Sure enough, Linlee had opened one of her presents!  I guess we never really told her that she had to wait until Christmas Day.  She’s been so good about leaving the presents alone the last couple …

Mémé and Linlee

We’re having a nice, relaxed day.  This morning, my mom, Linlee and I did the grocery shopping for the rest of the week.  After some snarky remarks from me, my husband decided it was time to start his Christmas shopping.  This afternoon, we’ve been hanging out coloring, reading books and playing out back a bit.  …

A good friend of mine sent me this picture of my dad and me.  I must have been about seventeen and I think we might have been in Oregon, about to go river rafting (or else we just finished because my dad’s hair looks wet, yet mine looks suspiciously dry).  Today is the day we …

It used to be my house.

These days there doesn’t seem to be a surface in our house that isn’t covered with Linlee’s toys, books, color crayons, or even snacks.  Any table, counter top, couch, chair, bench – you name it, her stuff is on it.  Linlee is insistent about spreading her things out.  (I am totally not a neat freak, …
