Linlee Art

This post is for Christina who enjoys kid art.  First, a sampe of Linlee’s ABC’s.  They are basic and always follow the exact same color pattern; have for years: Here are some from two years ago: This is one of my favorites during Linlee’s Cinderella phase (self-portrait): And here is a fascinating picture…  Linlee was …

Rainbows and Play-Doh

Linlee is into coloring rainbows right now.  I love it.  She still does her alphabet pictures (been doing the same one for years), but she is no longer coloring Baby Einstein video jackets, which I think is progress.  She is moving forward with rainbows.  She is actually much more talented than keeping to rainbows and …

Nuke, nook, noke…

That is the evolution of Holly’s word for milk.  She’s always gotten it wrong and I’ve never had the heart to correct her because it’s so darn cute.  So if she ever asks you for some “noke,” you now know what she means. Last week Holly and I got to enjoy lunch with Anne and …

Lunch Making 101

Each morning before school, I pack Linlee’s lunch.  The other morning, she stood and watched me critically.  Every time I placed something in the lunch box, she pointed out that I’d forgotten the carrots, or the strawberries, or the cookie, etc.  I responded – every time – that I had not forgotten anything yet, but …

Catching Up

Looks like an entire week has gone by since the last update.  I have a few things to report.  First, an ice skating update.  Last Thursday was lesson #5 and it was a break-though lesson for both girls.  Holly finally started scooting forward on her skates!  Hurrah!  Linlee did fantastic as well.  Linlee is able …

Okay, so a little snow…

Portland finally sent a little of their snow up our way.  The girls were thrilled this morning!After they came in from the winter fun, we made snow ice cream!  Strange stuff.  It tasted like a vanilla snow cone, really.

No Snow :(

Everyone else in the country appears to be enjoying a very snowy winter this year except for the Pacific Northwest.  I definitely feel like a “have not” and I’m bummed (especially with Portland getting dumped on last night while Seattle didn’t get a single flake).  I’m the kind of gal who could happily live in …

Frozen; the sing along!

Oh my gosh, I don’t even know where to start!  Holly loves this movie and has most of the soundtrack memorized.  This weekend, the theaters started showing special, “sing along” versions of the movie (with the words to all the songs bouncing along at the bottom of the screen).  The audiences are encouraged to sing …

Jinx!

Oh yes, another sleep post.  I mean, another lack of sleep post.  I mentioned a few posts back how the girls are mostly sleeping through the night.  Jinx on me!  You would think I’d have learned by now that as soon as I say anything like that out loud, the opposite happens.  Holly has been …
