Relaxing Weekend

It is so nice to have a weekend, where there is nothing planned and we can just play.  Emma came over for an hour or so, to pick up her Bootsie Toy that has been in the toy hospital since the day after Christmas.  It appears that Bootsie and a million of her closest friends were all defective.  So, alas we hope we have a working Bootsie, whom I prefer to call Kitty Purry.

Kindergarten Valentine Day

It was such a beautiful Valentine Day.  I don't remember ever having the day full of sunshine and 50 degree weather.  It made for a wonderful day.  Lilly was excited to get her own bungee chair, which are all the rage at school these day.  And she was full of wonderful stories of their party with their 3rd grade buddies.

Beating the Winter Blues ... with a Beach Party

While GiGi and Papa were having fun in the sun in Florida, Lilly had fun in the fluorescent lights at church at a Beach Party.  There were lots of friends and lots of activities to fit in.  MY favorite the make your own sand pudding treat ... Lilly claimed it was all her favorite.

Oak Hollow Forest

One of the unique things about our house is that we have a forest ... in the city.  And it makes me so happy.  Of course, the previous owners did nothing to keep it healthy or clean it out, but my hope is that over time, one small batch of twigs at a time, we will be able to restore it to beauty.  For the time being Lilly and neighbor Ava have great fun, finding things and fixing up their hobo fort.  It reminds me of the Indian Fort Katie and I had up at the cabin.  I do have to say this is a little more elaborate than the Indian Fort we had.

A Fantastic Fourth Birthday At The Cheese Establishment


There is nothing more exciting to two ecstatically energetic little girls, than to celebrate a birthday at the famously, clean and calm Cheese Establishment.  These two did have a ton of fun.  Kelliana and Lilly got enough tickets to win an adorably cute rubber friendship necklace that has two hearts that connect together.
