Green Thumb

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

Grace loves to pick flowers.  At school Grace and her classmates pick the flowers around their playground to give to their Mommies and Daddies.  While it’s a cute thing to receive flowers, it’s not so cute when she’s picking from your garden when the flowers aren’t ready to be picked.  I’ve caught her in the […]

My Little Hairdresser

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Recently Mommy and Daddy went to a friend’s wedding and left Grace and Cole behind with the grandparents.  Grace was excited to see Mommy getting ready and decided to help me with my hair. She did such a great job taking out the hot rollers in my hair.  She also couldn’t resist putting on a […]

Frog and Mermaid

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

Grace and I have a great time doing arts and crafts.  I try to have at least one activity planned each week for her to do during the days she is at home with me. Last week we went to Barnes and Noble for storytelling time for toddlers.  The author of a book about frogs […]

Grace likes to dress up and pretend she’s other people. Whether it’s the late MJ’s kid “Blanket”…… Or the invisible kid…. Or a crazy cat lady. What will she be next? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Monday, July 13th, 2009

It’s finally starting to look like summer outside.  For the 4th of July weekend we spent lots of time outdoors in the sunshine with family.  I asked Grace if she remembers last year’s 4th of July but I once again got a blank stare.  Then I reminded her of how she got to stay up late […]

Father’s Day

We celebrated Father’s Day together with family at cousin Emily’s new house.  All the kids could think about was pool, pool, pool.  For father’s day, daddy received a cool summer hat to sport around town.  Here he is wearing his new gift next to his father. After lots of begging and pleading the kids got to go […]

Wow!  I’m way behind on blogging.  I get so busy sometimes that I can’t even get the energy to blog at night anymore.  But I must keep going.  Last time I left off I talked about our Vegas trip.  After we left Vegas we headed back to Fullerton to spend some time with Yaya and […]

Vegas Baby!

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

We recently went to Las Vegas for a small family vacation.  Dan was also invited to party it up with his friends for a bachelor party.  We stayed at a great hotel provided by Dan, Marlene and Ava.  It was far enough off the strip so that we could avoid Vegas crazies but close enough […]
