Some days are just better as a duck.

Holly came up to me holding her duck costume wanting to wear it for the day.  How cute is that! Advertisements

Weekend Wrap-Up

What a great four-day weekend.  It was so nice to have Rob’s parents join us for Thanksgiving.  Holly likes to be played with constantly, so it was a nice break for me to have the grandparents take over that role.  Both girls really enjoyed their time with them.  Linlee loved the added bonus of getting …

A Happy Thanksgiving

We have enjoyed a relaxing day with Rob’s parents today.  It started with Linlee and I making a pumpkin cream cheese pie.  Linlee had been talking about making this pie for weeks. Then a little game of chase between Grandma and the girls… Wish I had caught Carolyn coming up behind Holly in this picture. …

Linlee’s Gotcha Day

November 22, 2005: This day is not significant to Linlee yet.  She does not understand adoption, or the fact that we traveled halfway around the world for her.  It is significant to me, however.  November 22 is the day I became a mother; the most important role of my life.  All my other roles are …

Singing in the Choir

Linlee is in her fellowship youth choir and they had a performance this morning. Doesn’t she look sweet?  I was home with a napping Holly, but Rob said she did great and actually sang!  I would liked to have posted pictures of the entire choir, but as I don’t have the other parents’ permission, I …

Yuck

Okay, I admit it…  I am not enjoying the “learning to feed herself” phase of Holly’s development. Clearly I wasn’t paying attention as plenty of her dinner went into her hair.

Play Date

After many postponements due to illness, I was finally able to make it up to Anne’s new place with the girls today.  What fun!  Anne has already unpacked and has her home completely put together.  Impressive!  Her home looks fabulous.  Holly had a blast playing with Rachel.  Poor Linlee was having an off day and …

Linlee Update

I have good things to write.  Linlee is doing so well these days.  This morning it only took us five minutes to get dressed for school, including brushing of the hair – no fussing.  Wow!  I think back to the epic battles of getting Linlee ready for school last year; the screaming, hysterical child and …

Autumn Leaves and Veggie Nuggets

Linlee had the day off from school today.  I had originally hoped for an outing with the girls, but the day was so dark, rainy and plain old dreary out that I lost all motivation to leave the house.  We’d only end up soaked trying to get to wherever we were going anyhow.  So snuggled …

Contagion – yikes!

I made the mistake of seeing this movie last month (Contagion).  In the film, the first person gets sick shortly before Thanksgiving.  So last night, when I was huddled under ten pounds of blankets and still shivering so badly that my teeth were chattering (among other nasty symptoms which we shall not discuss), I realized …
