It's a Blizzard Outside

It looks like Spring here...L playing with her dress up kit Santa brought her.  Even Emmitt played.


12.18.10 ~ L making treats for her friends at daycare
The weekends have been busy...It's mostly been about baking.
December week 1:  Jf White's Kid's Christmas Party
There was a magician who madee animal balloons for the kids, crafts and Santa came to visit.  L kept inching closer and closer to Santa, but when it was her turn she was scared.

December week 2:  It was baking, cleaning, shopping and swimming We did some Christmas shopping, L help bake chocolate chip cooks and there were swim lessons.  L's favorite parts of baking is running the mixer and licking the cake batter.  This was also the last weekend of swimming lesson until after the New Year.

All excited about swimming until it was time

December week 3: All about baking and making gifts for L's friends We make treats for L's friends.  L did it all by herself.  It project was super easy and perfect for a 2 year old says, "I do it" a lot.   This morning we baked a cake so we could try making cake p…

Maybe Sea Pony

 12.05-10 ~ L swimming without Daddy

Now that there is only 1 swim lesson left…in L style she’s beginning to get comfortable. This week she got on the ducky and let go of daddy for a few seconds to let Zoey help her. We were proud parents on Sunday because our little girl was not SO scared. This gave us hope that L would be ready to move from the Goldfish to the Sea Pony class where parents do not get in the pool with their child.

Photo take with Dave's photo (quality is okay)


We've been thinking L looks older...I can see it in these photos.  My thoughts probably come from looking through a year worth of photos for our Christmas card.

Christmas Tree

11.18.10 ~ L and Daddy at Russell's
It’s Christmas, can we wish for more time?!? It would be first on my list. I’m sure it would be for most people. It’s been busy since Thanksgiving.
I do
We went and picked our Christmas tree from Russell's on Sunday, but can’t say we all enjoyed it too much. L was in a terrible mood. You really can’t blame her I guess…poor kid. Before going to get the tree, we decided to stop and get coffee. With L these days, it’s “I do.” The “I do” turned into a disaster. L fell from the chair she was sitting in and hit her nose {it started to bleed, but stopped quickly}.

We pushed on and got the tree. We were in a much happier place after getting the tree.
She's heavy...Dave taking a rest from trying to put the Angel on the tree

Last attempt before Daddy put on the Angel

The Sillies

It was a FULL Thanksgiving {weekend}.  We headed to Maine and had dinner with both families.  The first three photos are of the "Sillies" on Thanksgiving day.  They enjoyed just being silly with one another.  As always L would not part-take even when the kids tried to coax her.

L got in {the below} photo when I sat next to her.  Can you see my arm on her lap?!?  The photo was taken on Saturday before my Father's remembrance started.  It's probably a 1/4 of the younger nieces, nephews, and second cousin.


L loves when we shop at Sudbury Farms because she gets her own cart and gets to unload it.Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.4

Here's L's giving thanks to eating and her books.

Under the Weather

L was under the weather yesterday so we spent the whole day at home.   We played, read books, watched t.v. and baked cupcakes for Daddy. Before dinnner we built this lovely leaning castle.  At bedtime, L wanted to pick the whole thing up and bring it with her to bed.

Would you think this child was sick...all smiles after her cupcake or should I say her frosting. 

Ong Noi's Birthday

L & Ba Noi baking Ong Noi a cake

Today is Ong Noi’s birthday…Happy Birthday Ong Noi! L and I drove up to Maine Thursday night to celebrate with him. L and Ba Noi baked Ong Noi a cake on Saturday and we went to dinner Saturday. It was a fantastic meal. L ordered her own meal…steak.

L loves to line things up and serve us spagetti

L loves to play "in her room."  She kept saying, "Emmitt sleep in my room" and Emmitt on my bed." 
On Saturday L, Ba Noi and I went to the At Once All Agog where L used a doll carriage as her shopping cart.   She filled it will all the toys she wanted.

It's a full cart

L had her swim lesson Sunday and then we planned our day…grocery shop, library, car ride and bake cookies for Daddy. The ride in the plan was so L could get a nap. Around 2PM L and I went for a ride so she can have a power nap. We ended in Wellesley and came across some ducks. L had to get out of the car to see them and I had to tell her to not get too close. She w…

Mary Had a Little Man

L was a just a bit excited about swim lessons Sunday....she's already.  She didn't want to wait for us.  She got her bathing suit on with a, "I do" and then got her boots on {on the wrong feet}.   It didn't matter that it was 40 degrees coat was needed. 

The day followed with L singing, "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and "Mary Had a Little Man."

Trick or Treat

L loved passing out candy on Halloween. 

She's saying, "I put it here for kids."  There was at least one child who said, "Trick or Treat," but many did not.  L's at the age {I'm sure with many more years to come} where we are thinking kids say the darnest things.

This video is definitely a TREAT!

Halloween Weekend

10.30.10 ~ Wholefood, L's new dramatic express...her hands at her face
This weekend was mostly about Halloween…the costumes, treats (to L it’s CHOCOLATES), trick or treat and Happy Halloween.L really understood the concept of trick or treating this year.While she was so shy and you could barely hear her she did it and even said, “the kids didn’t say it.”This was referring to the fact that most of the kids did not say trick or treat when they came to the door.{I should post the video, it’s classic.}L understood you had to go to the doors, knock and say, “trick or treat” in order to get candy.She was adorable in her costume saying she would get chocolate at the door.
L was {as always} was quite distracted by other things

Coffee was needed after Wholefoods, on our way to the coffee shop
I say mostly about Halloween because this weekend a lot more than Halloween. L is REALLY.GROWING into herself and at times Dave and I struggled with her. She’s become more dramatic and Dave and I ask each…

Happy Halloween

From our little lady...
