About Me

My photo
I'm a hand-holding, swing-pushing, story-telling Mama with a creative streak and a nurturing spirit. I like growing food and flowers (and people, hehe), sewing clothes and quilts, cooking and eating and running, a long, tight hug and the color yellow. I love date nights at home, spontaneous trips to the bookstore and hearing my babies laugh. I am indecisive, exaggerrative and I overuse parentheses. I am reflective and sentimental and quick to laugh. I think I still picture myself as a 22-year old, yet every year my life gets more fulfilling. I am still figuring out exactly who I am. :)

Pardon my half-hearted attempts at descriptive sentences...I'm tired today, hehe. :) 
A makeshift sandbox because Noah and I still haven't cleaned out the main one whose lid was left off during our monster rainstorm (guilty!)

Everyday she asks for "pi-dy dails, Mommy, bee" (pigtails, Mommy, please)

A golf course. My favorite was the one he set up in the middle of an intricate train track, complete with mountain, bridges and neighborhoods. Man, we need to take him miniature-golfing! :)

Playing "princesses take a ride on a spaceship to see Wall-E" while I made dinner with a smile on my face to see and hear them play together.

And no, I have absolutely no problem with him wearing a tutu if he wants. :)

So far this month...

We've discovered new parks

Signed up Alexander for t-ball and Claire for softball (and volunteered Noah as the coach, which he graciously agreed to!!)

practiced our swings...

...had trouble sharing

...took matters into her own hands...

...for her own picture

We've been to Open House where our girl proudly showed us around her classroom.

We've been just plain cute...

...gone to a birthday party

practiced some more

played with fun toys

(more open house!)

We've painted up a storm

And played with the hose

More cuteness

Even more cuteness!
She dressed up like her favorite character- in her case it was very
challenging (not!) to come up with an outfit for Pinkalicious. :)

I can tell our stroller days are numbered as Lucy sometimes prefers to walk instead...

Happy weekend! :)
