HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

“Here sister, let me fix your hat…” “Here sister, let me grab yours…” Awe… We went out on the deck with Linlee and did poppers (little packets that make a popping sounds as tiny streamers shoot out.)  It wasn’ t quite midnight (try 7:05) but is was dark, so close enough. Ya think Linlee was …

Changing Rooms

I was going to say that the angle of this picture makes Holly look like giganto baby (after all, Linlee will be six on Monday and Holly is six months), but I’m afraid it may not just be the angle. Two days ago we switched the girls’ rooms.  Whether Linlee is happy or melting down, …

BFF

Today I took Linlee up north so we could visit with Anne and Rachel.  Anne is recovering from the first of two surgeries.  She looked great and seemed to be feeling all right.  Linlee and Rachel got to spend the afternoon playing.  (I left Holly with my mom.)  It takes Linlee a little time to …

Awe…

The girls were playing under this blanket.  Holly was beside herself with joy to be playing with her sister.  It absolutely amazes me how this six month old baby already adores her big sister so much and wants to be part of all the fun.  I guess I thought that would happen in another six …
