Good-bye, old barn…

Every week for the last six years we’ve driven 45 minutes to this horse arena…  It is quiet and peaceful.  It smells sweet and earthy like hay.  It’s big and old and dusty with birds chirping in the rafters and two dogs who roam freely greeting all the people as they come and go.  I …

Puppy Pictures

Here she is last week (3 weeks old): And this week at four weeks old:   She is the pup sitting up.  Her brother is taking a snooze.  Their mama only had these two in her litter.  The breeder reported that both puppies have sooo much personality (oh, help me) and she is very attached to …

Bangs are back!

 And look, her hair is down!  That tight, no-hair, slicked back look has been killing me, but I’ve put on a brave face and supported my daughter’s choice in style.  Out of the blue she asked me to cut her bangs tonight.  At first I wasn’t going to do it because I thought it was too …

New Pictures

I’ve got nothing new to report, folks.  My mother-in-law called to make sure everything was all right because my blog has not been updated in a week.  Ha.  Some weeks there is just not much to say.  Both girls have coughs.  That’s about it. And another birthday party for Holly to attend…  Holly with bestie …

Pierced Ears

 Oh, yes we did!  This little gal was so determined to wear earrings that she suffered through a day of wearing magnetic ones which actually cut into her ears.  After that, I decided to let her go for it.  I was a wreck.  I kept checking that Linlee understood it was going to be a …

Valentine Cookies

 I never got around to doing sugar cookies with the girls at Christmas time, so I decided that we would make Valentine cookies this month.  One day before Valentine’s Day and I finally geared up and pulled out the baking supplies.  Linlee opted out, which was disappointing, but Holly had a grand time. I knew Holly …

We’ll Get By

This song made me sob.  It’s our story with Linlee and it’s pretty much all in there, from the words being sung to the actions of the mother and child.

Cheers and Valentines

 Holly had a wonderful time at her friend Zoey’s 5th birthday party this afternoon.  Here are the very sweet girls doing “cheers!” together.  Later in the afternoon, I helped Holly sign her Valentine cards for preschool.  Oh. My. Word.  All she had to do was sign her name; in preschool they do not need to …

One Blurry Picture

 I finally got my iPhone to “trust” my new computer (which was really just my old computer, but fixed) and was able to download my pictures.  Turns out I’d taken a nice batch of blurry pictures.  Ugh.  I’m a little on the frazzled end of life right now, so I’ll just leave you to enjoy the …

Argh!

I know I owe this blog some new, cute, little girl pictures, but now that my computer is “fixed,” it is not recognizing any photos from my iPhone.  That’s going to be super inconvenient.  I’ll try to snap some shots with my camera this weekend.
