This is how a Daddy treats his daughter right! Robby was finishing up a snack and Julia decided she wanted to sample some herself. I believe she got a finger taste of icing as a reward for just looking darn cute.

Wrapping Paper Shapes

November 23rd, 2009 by Mommy


I got some new wrapping paper this year so that we could have a kid wrapping paper theme for our gifts. I will make them grownup again later, but for now I’m embracing the candy colored kid look. Emily helped me pick the paper out, so we now have one roll of Mickey Mouse paper. Emily enjoyed playing with the paper at the store and again at home. Her favorite game is to make the four rolls into different shapes on the floor. We have had square, rectangles, and diamonds.

Julia has been wanting to take naps a little early lately. Here she checked out after she finished her breakfast. I put her in her bed and she didn’t even stir.

Leaf Pile Fun!

November 20th, 2009 by Mommy






Fall leaves make good piles – good piles make for good fun! We had a morning playdate with the leaves this morning. There was a lot of jumping, wading, dumping, and pushing. The kids enjoyed picking up leaves and dumping them on each other. Kids sure are fun to watch! Thanks Aiden, Elena, and Maeve for coming to play today.

Laundry Help

November 19th, 2009 by Mommy


I think one benefit of kids is that they can help share the housework. We definitely are not there yet, and the jury is still out on whether they balance out the work they create with the work they provide. We will see.

The other day, I was folding the girls laundry and Emily came to help me. She first pulled out her socks, folded them, and piled them up. It was so sweet. She then proceeded to pile the remaining laundry on the couch beside me and then climbed in the basket with her pillow and toys to play. She had a blast!
