Eva Ballerina

Eva on her last day of ballet before the winter break was ready indeed. The teacher had the children perform their own version of The Nutcracker. Eva was so great.

Eva's last day of being three

Eva just left for school. She is getting so big. This morning we tried on a pair of pants, just some kakis I got at a second hand store. We attempt once in a while to see if she's ready to wear them because it is getting increasingly difficult to keep pants to wear with all the pink she demands every day. Today was the day -- they fit. She looked so long and lean in them. We put them on with an old red, velour dress from last year. Today was the day to visit the fire station, so she had on her pink and orange polka-dotted rain coat and boots from Grammy. We snuggled at the bottom of the stairs as I reminded her it was her last day being three. Art started down the stairs with her until she reminded him she forgot her vegetable for soup day. It's started already, she's reminding us of things!

eli trapped

As I was scanning the following images Eli was playing contently in his room. I started to hear a whine from his diretion. I would answer back,"Eli, mommy is in the living room, come up here." This continued for a little bit, until his urging got a bit more urgent. I left my post at the computer to find Eli's choo choo underwear snagged on the the bed. He was telling me he was TRAPPED. I unhooked my boy, had a fine snuggle, and we continued what we were doing.....
