Quote of the Day

"Happiness is a choice, progress is a way of life, optimism is part of the Faith that will make the red sea open before us. If life were all easy, we wouldn´t need God, and there would never be miracles." from Elder Spencer K. Allred

which one is a real baby?

The girls are all playing mommy with their dolls and strollers and car seats. They changed play diapers, took babies to be babysat (they switched dolls with each other) and organized a play group. Lilypad even came up to me and commented on being a mother acting like she was one and could empathize with all my troubles, LOL!

Whats with the SOCKS!

Okay what is with the socks! Today as I was sorting laundry I grabbed a funny shaped sock. I opened it and took out another funny shaped sock with a hair tie keeping it closed. I removed the tie and removed another funny shaped sock with a hair tie on it. Now I was curious to see what was making the funny shape inside this sock. I removed the hair tie and find yes another sock inside with a hair tie on the end keeping it closed. I remove this tie and ta da... a red drinking straw is inside. Now why is the straw in there. Why was it protected inside a sock or rather 4 socks and various elastic hair ties? Is this straw somehow special?
Why when we have so many toys do the girls play with socks?
This has been a perplexing dilemma for me for years. Nearly 5 years, since it is Lil who does the sock stuffing at our house and the knot tying and the blanket manipulating. I think she just prefers textiles. Hmmmm I love textiles so maybe in the end she will horde fabric like her mom.

Angel boy

Now I am not as good at photography as Lj or Mer, but I tried to do a photo shoot with Y-yum.
We used natural lighting cause they say that is better but I think without a flash it was just blurrier. These two were my favs.

baby... dolls

Sometimes Y-yum gets to stretch out on the floor.
Mommy looked over to see what the sisters were doing.
So here I am next to a line of dolls. Proof that Lil thinks Y-yum is a dolly.

Emptying out the eggs and eating as many candies as fast we can!
Grandma's kids table. So much fun!
We enjoyed seeing Great grandma and grandpa. Don't know how many more Easters we can spend together.
Great grandma pointed out that baby Yumyum was lucky to see Great grandpa on earth.
Great grandpa said W it's a great honor to meet you! I love how they are looking at each other.
Uncle J surprised us. We didn't think he could come out and visit us. We love you Uncle J.
