as the days go by

{Some recent highlights of our life}

a funny face

She started choosing her clothes (sometimes the minute she wakes up, and sometimes more than once a day). She loves dresses, shoes, and being either a princess or Wendy from Peter Pan. Can you tell she had the sandals on the wrong feet?

the children's museum

Grandma Nene and I took the kids to the children's museum. Our three-year-old had so much fun; the other time she went there she was less than a year old. (I had left the memory card at home, so I could only get a few pictures.)

the scrapbook expo

I started going with my friends -- we missed you, Hillary! -- three years ago. We usually stay until midnight. The baby was able to fall asleep once I made her little world darker for her.

"the bouncy place," as Shboogoo calls it

We went with some neighbors. Three of the six moms were there; Mrs. M had organized the play date to give some of the others a break for a few hours. They had tons of fun running around. Then Mrs. M, who had paid for the kids' admission, let them each choose a rubber duckie, too.

celebrating Easter

Here's what the girls wore to church the week before. On Easter we stayed home and watched conference and made banana bread. I gave L an outfit, and Shboogoo two shirts and two Mercer Mayer books (L enjoys the books, too). The grandparents gave fun things to the girls and candy to Shboogoo and me.  

our wedding anniversary

Hopefully the last one spent living apart!

. . . Sometimes all you can do is just
take a picture and hold your place in time
as the days go by
the days go by
the days go by . . .
