Silly

Shy

Scared


Sad



Happy



Angry
And one more. . .

Singing in the Tub

Today I stayed home with Lily because she was sick, which explains why she has been what we call a "clingbot" lately. Nobody but Mom has been good enough, and she has to be touching me to be at all content. Last night while I made supper, she was velcroed to my leg as I moved from the counter to the refrigerator to the stove. Somewhat humorous, but tiresome for Mommy. So, being attached at the hip with her today, we were on the computer scanning through some video footage (movies of herself are always a hit!). Some of you have seen this clip, but I couldn't help but post it. I know I am her mom, but if you don't think this is cute, you're crazy.

Heat Wave

Well, despite the bitter cold this past week, the weather has warmed up enough for us to enjoy some time outside. These are from a trip to the park for the whole family (dogs included). I also got a chance to try out my new camera (which I must say I reallly like!).


This last picture has to be one of my all-time favorites. Mike built a tunnel in our front yard, and here are my two sweeties having fun.

Getting a cash register for Christmas so Lily can be "the lady"

If you ask her how much you owe, the answer is always, "Ninety-four five."
