Waiting for sister to get home from school…

My two sweethearts:

Flowers, Hot Dogs and Oreos

Here is a picture of my flower basket in the morning sunshine: And here it is in the evening as the sun begins to set: Isn’t it amazing the difference in the sunlight? In the last several months, Linlee has discovered a love of hot dogs.  She has lived on peanut butter sandwiches since she …

Mismatched

Anyone who has read my blog for any amount of time probably notices that I dress my girls pretty cute.  My house may be a wreck, but my children look nicely groomed and put together.  Linlee came home yesterday and changed out of her matching leggings into these: Sigh.  I realize that the Pipi Longstocking …

This drives me crazy…

Mess!  That is not what the dining area looked like when I placed Holly there with a plate of scrambled eggs to eat while I was busy cooking the grown-up dinner.  She ate most of her eggs and then threw the plate and fork on the floor.  She dumped out all of the crayons from …

Horse Therapy

Linlee still has horse therapy every Saturday morning.  She rides like a champ, follows three-step instructions and enjoys her time very much.  Thought I’d bring my camera along today. Leading Shaw to the arena. Confident little rider. I was looking at the picture above and thought, “Wow, she looks Chinese.”  Um, yeah Colleen, she is …

So shy!

Holly has always been super shy around unfamiliar people.  I felt she even exhibited stranger anxiety before the age when babies typically experience that.  Today at Little Gym, she wasn’t paying attention and ran into the arms of the mommy sitting next to me.  I’m telling you, the child was traumatized.  Even though the other …

Happy Mother’s Day!

Holly is smiling pretty in the top picture and Linlee is smiling pretty in the bottom one.  (Smiling pretty at the same time is like asking for the moon!)  As I look at these pictures, I notice that I am smiling like Holly in the first one and like Linlee in the second one.  Kind …

Cute Holly Words

Holly has a great vocabulary and says a lot of words correctly, but others she doesn’t have quite right (and those are the cutest).  Here are a few: dowf = down pah = paci bipper = diaper jutes = juice nuke = milk dih-der = sister wuvey = lovey kee-kee = cookie pah-bee = potty …

Aunt Mary & Uncle Peter’s Farm

This morning we went to my aunt and uncle’s farm to show the girls the chickens, goats, sheep and lambs (the pigs weren’t nearby for viewing).  We all had such a fabulous time.  What is it about visiting a little farm that is so enchanting? Sitting on a wall. I just love the above picture …
