BUSTED! (updated)

At least she is not good at sneaking stuff yet…I walked into the kitchen to discover a kitchen chair pushed up to the counter, a bag of Godiva chocolates (which Rob had given me for Valentine’s Day and which I’ve been slowly treating myself to) and an empty wrapper.  Hmm.  I’m no Sherlock Holmes, but …

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Oh, I love this commercial.  And as much as I love my daughters, it is time for them to go back to school.  We’ve had an extremely busy summer, but the last two weeks have been more low-key.  The girls have used this time to perfect the art of bickering.  Linlee is having another rough …

Stink Pots

We went out for a lovely dinner on the waterfront this evening and took a walk along the marina.  I pulled out my phone for a quick shot of my smiling girls.  This is what I got: Bored: One cold, one cheeky: One still shivering because it’s only 73º out and the other posing (I …

BBQ 2014

A wonderful evening spent with our dear friends. Holly and Rachel had a blast playing in our pool.  Linlee has rarely gotten in the pool at all this summer, much to her sister’s dismay.  Holly was thrilled to have a play mate.  In fact, these two continued to play in the water long after the …

This is where we spent our Saturday night.Holly trying out her bunk and perusing a Lego catalog. View out our screen …

Before, After & Miscellaneous

Well, it’s done.  Miss Linlee wanted short hair and so she got her wish. Before: After : Before: After (not quite as drastic, but also cute): Miscellaneous:Above, one stretches while the other dances. Ending the day in bubbles.

First Day of Summer

Okay, obviously it’s not the first day of summer.  It’s August 11th.  But it sort of felt like the first day of summer at our house today.  Summers are supposed to be long, lazy days of part fun and part boredom.  Right?  That has not been our experience this year.  Between three camps, ice skating lessons, …

I object.

School starts next month and I’ve been eagerly looking for a few new fall outfits for the girls.  I’m not having much luck.  Either I’m looking too early or the styles just aren’t speaking to me.  I was flipping through one of my favorite catalogs and happened upon this:Seriously.  Are you telling me that this child …

To cut, or not to cut?

Linlee wants her hair cut.  LIKE A BOY’S.  (She is now identifying herself as Nick from The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That.  She used to call herself Sally from the show, but she has switched.)  Okay, I am not letting her get a boy’s haircut, however, I am on the fence …
