Happy Halloween!

Oh, the cuteness!  As usual, Linlee gleefully sprinted from house to house and had to be told to slow down and wait for her sister.  Holly was all gung-ho about trick-or-treating until we approached the first “spooky” house.  As much as she adores candy, she was more than happy to skip any house with flashing …

Baby Linlee

I’ve always loved the following three pictures of Linlee, just age one, reading with her daddy.  If you’d told me then about the road ahead we’d have with her, I wouldn’t have believed it. The cow says moooo… The sheep says baaaa… And pig oinks are just funny! Cutest little peanut!

Sneak Peek

The girls were invited to wear their Halloween costumes to church (don’t you just love that!).  They are both so cute I could eat them up with a spoon!We have Snow White and a kitty.  Holly’s tutu has a black tail which you cannot see.  Also, Linlee is growing her hair long, but I so …

Pumpkin Carving

This used to be the kind of event where I would take lots and lots of pictures.  Now I just snapped a few in between helping the girls with their pumpkins and called it good.  I think I’m losing my blogging mojo!  Much like last year (pumpkin carving 2012), Linlee was super excited for this …

Home again, home again.

Well, Rob and the girls survived three days without me.  We all knew they would (or at least, we were very, very hopeful).  Rob’s basic plan was to take them on continuous outings until it was time for everyone to sleep.  That’s why I was worried about him losing one of them, but there were …

Cousin Alisha’s Wedding

I bravely left the girls with Rob this weekend (or not so bravely depending on who you talked to; I was rather a wreck) so that my mom and I could trek across the state for my cousin’s wedding in Spokane.  The wedding was beautiful and the bride was stunning.  I had such a wonderful time …

School Picture 2013

She smiled!  It’s strained and fakey, but I’ll take it (as half of her school pictures are of her scowling). She actually smiled last year too and it was a great smile (wish I had cut her bangs!): I’m not going to post her first grade picture because it’s awful and I don’t think it’s …

Abandoning my family – sob!

My two cuties before school and Little Gym this morning. Even though Rob has started back with Disney just this week, it looks like he will be able to stay home on Friday so that my mother and I can attend a wedding on the other side of the state this weekend.  I am overcome …

The difference between my girls…

Oh, there are many, MANY differences, but here is one…  After dinner, both girls went out to play in the backyard on this chilly, October evening.  A half hour later, they both came inside.  Linlee looked exactly the same as when she went out.  Holly was now buck naked and covered in mud. Sometimes you …

Pumpkin Patch 2013

Our rain took a break for a sunshiny weekend – hooray!  Whenever this happens, we know that we have to dash to the pumpkin patch and take advantage of the non-wet.  We cannot count on future weekends being soggy-free. The picture above made me laugh.  I’d asked Rob to be funny so the girls would …
