Sisters

I often listen to music and daydream as I clean or pick up.  This morning I was cleaning up the kitchen with my head-set on – off in my own little world – when I looked over and noticed my two girls sitting at the computer giggling away (playing ABCmouse.com).  It just warms my heart …

Hanging out at home…

This picture was taken a few days before Christmas.  About midday on Christmas, Holly began coughing and she’s been sick ever since.  Poor lamb.  She’s had a fever that comes and goes, sniffles and coughing.  We’ve mostly been hanging out at home waiting for her to get better.  I was ready to take her to …

Christmas Morning

Merry Christmas!   Holly was awake at six.  I don’t think she remembered that Santa had finally come; she was just ready to start the day.  Linlee arose after seven sometime.  The girls got to checkout their stockings while waiting for the grands to arrive around nine for the big gift-opening extravaganza.  I made my …

We had our big family dinner tonight.  It was a lovely evening… Reading the Twelve Days of Christmas with Grandpa Young. A funny one of Grandma Young and Holly yesterday: I believe we are all set for tomorrow.  Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

Next year I’m letting the husband do Christmas.

Next year, I’m going to let my husband decorate the tree and the house after Thanksgiving.  He can take the picture for the holiday card, upload it to a photo card web site, pick up the cards and then address them all and post them (with holiday stamps, of course).  He can make the Christmas …

Snow Day!

No school – hip hip hooray!  The girls were itching to get outside before the sun was up, but I said “no.”  LOL!  I made them wait until it was light first.  They were beyond excited.  We start our snow days at the Young house with a breakfast of aebleskivers:Then we suit up and head …

Preschool Concert

Is there anything cuter than three and four-year olds standing on a stage singing Christmas carols?  I think not!  Holly did an awesome job at her first-ever performance.  Before the show started, she stood on the stage with her peers waving to Rob and Mémé and me, shouting out, “HI MOM!” and blowing us kisses. …

An airplane?

Santa visited Holly’s preschool last week.  Apparently while chatting with him, she asked for an airplane.  WHAT?  This child has been talking about an Ariel camera (there is such a thing at the Disney store and rumor has it that she’s getting one) and “sparkle make-up” for months.  She has no interest in airplanes whatsoever; …

Holiday Fun

Tonight was our holiday dinner with the Davis family.  So often we plan this dinner in December and it gets postponed week after week do to either bad driving conditions or illness or both.  Neither of those problems were a threat this year, however a bat was.  A bat has decided to move into the …

A little Linlee, a little Holly…

I volunteered in Linlee’s class today while they made gingerbread (graham cracker) houses.  It was fun and of course Linlee did a fabulous job with her house! Clearly we need to work on Linlee’s “natural” smile.  Ha. And here is Holly being Holly…
