28 December 2011 Date Afternoon

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Instead of a movie or a restaurant meal, the man and I opted for an afternoon date at the park, where we found four letterboxes, including the two that eluded us on the winter solstice. Yeah, that had been bugging us… but today-success!

24 December 2011 The Night Before Christmas

Saturday, December 24th, 2011

A couple of firsts: Sam was tall enough to hang her stocking by herself and she read aloud Clement Moore’s poem “The Night Before Christmas” before bed. Soon she won’t need us at all anymore. It goes by so fast. Happy Christmas to All!

22 December 2011 Happy Winter Solstice

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

The Winter Solstice dawned sunny and mild here today so we headed to Ridley Creek Park in the middle of the day to look for a letterbox. We didn’t find it. Not even with the help of a big stick and little girl eagle eyes.

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

I was all set to post a different photo for today–a really cute one of Sam and longtime friend Trina and her baby sister Tess (hi, guys!) but then after dinner Sam went and lost her first tooth! And I really do mean lost. She was talking animatedly to her grandparents when I thought I […]

14 December 2011 Bouncy Bouncy Ballet

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

The thing to know about ballet this term is that Sam has not been enjoying the classes. In the car after class I ask her what she learned, what was fun, etc. and she replies, “Nothing.” “Well, what did you do?” “Oh, we did, ‘Bouncy Bouncy.’” “What’s that?” “Oh, it’s not very interesting.” And then […]
