It's me again, Miss Kate!

Sammy's annual hair cut appointment with Miss Kate.  Her hair just keeps getting longer and longer.  I hope she can grow it long like her Mommy!  Remember when her hair was like this?

Play dough

Mommy made home made play dough for the girls to play with and they had an absolute ball!

Monday, February 27, 2012

She's reading already!

Ok, maybe not actually reading, per se, but at least she has the magazine the right side up!

Looks like trouble

While I was looking at photos of Sammy to use, I saw this and went, "Whoa!"  Doesn't it look like she's having a bottle of beer?  Don't worry, it's not.  It is her very own bottle of sparkling apple cider that she had when we went out for sushi.  When she first tasted it, her eyes got big and a great big smile lit up her face.  "I yike this!"

I yike this, too, sweetie.

No jump ball for her...

video
Having a jumping contest between the two toddlers was pretty funny.  When told to jump (meaning jump UP) Olivia sat down...

The water table

What I didn't know about visiting the Discovery Museum was that the kids got to play with a huge water table.  And they get soaked!

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Whoohoo!

Sammy ran circles around the others to slide as many times as possible.  She so enjoyed it at the Discovery Museum and helped Mommy and Mimi with watching the two little ones.

At the Discovery Museum

Yesterday, Mommy invited me to go to the Discovery Museum with her and the girls (I had their cousin with me).  What a great place to bring kids!

Some explanation

I think Papa is trying to explain to Sammy who the point guard is and who the regular guards are.  Good luck, Sammy, I still haven't figured it out....

It's that time again

video
There is absolutely no question about it.  When Olivia gets tired, she'll let you know and pretty much asks for her nap.  Gotta love that!

Loved the cheerleading

in fact, after the game she went up to two RHS cheerleaders and gave them hi-5's!

Waiting

This is their window.  They wait here until a train goes by and then start yelling and pointing at it.  Finally, as it chugs away, they raise their hands and wave bye-bye...they love the choo-choos.

Friday, February 17, 2012

That's how you do it!

First, you make snow angels then Mommy makes you hot cocoa to warm up!

CORRECTION:
Daddy contacted me to let me know that HE did this...not Mommy.

Balloons!

Daddy bought his Princesses balloons for Valentines Day.  They love balloons!  Enjoy it while it lasts, Daddy, because pretty soon, you will not be able to get away with just balloons.

Her chi-chi

She loves her blankie so much!  Mommy bought a huge blanket and then cut it in half.  One for Olivia at home and one to keep here in her crib.  Much like Linus and his blanket, Olivia's must always be nearby.

KOA poster child

Mommy and Daddy just bought a new travel trailer.  Sammy wants to go camping NOW!

Don't get lost!

When in Home Depot or Costco, always hold onto your sister's hand.

Air Kisses

video
This is one of the sweetest things a child can be taught, in my book.

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Can you imagine the fun?

video
I don't know how long this will remain inside the house, but as long as it does, these two girls are gonna have a blast!

Monkey see, monkey do

Yes, even my littliest Princess has learned how to do this.  Gah!

Something about birthdays..


Brings on BIRTH days.  Here Auntie is hugging her Princess and her Tub bye bye so she could go home and give birth to their cousin.  This is the second time that the family has celebrated someone's birthday and then one member leaves to give birth!  Mama did it when she had Sammy celebrating Daddy's birthday and now Auntie's gone and done it as well.

Monday, February 6, 2012

Hey!

Who taught her how to do this?  I have a pretty good guess and she's another blonde...

Gigantes

This was Daddy's windbreaker from when he was a little boy.  Papa put it on her and got a cute smile!

Before and After

This is what she looked like right before I laid her down for her nap...slowly fading


and this is what she looked like when she woke up.  Her first words when she saw me?  "Hi!"

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Just like my big sister's!

Olivia wanted a ponytail as well so Mommy had to use her Ninja like skills to put it in really fast!

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

You're getting sleepy.....

Even though there is still food to eat, little one here has slowed down.  You can tell it's getting close to nap time since she won't let go of her Micky Mouse and her chi-chi (blanket).

Contagion

Poor little Sammy has another cold.  It just seems that it has been one long cold this winter!!  She feels much better recuperating in Nana's room, along with her stuffed animals and special blanket.

Monday, January 30, 2012

You were young?

I sent over some very old, very very old hunting pictures of Daddy when he was little.  Here he is showing his daughters that yes, indeed, he was once not quite so tall and not quite so old.  And they sit there in disbelief.  I feel your pain, Daddy.  You look at my photos the same way!!  (of course mine were chiseled on stone tablets.)

The Throne

video
You gotta start sometime...but don't you just want to zerbert that belly????

They're screamers!

video
The girls absolutely love this song and now scream in utter delight when it comes on.  Oh, my ears!

Sous Chef

While helping Mommy in the kitchen is always fun for Sammy, stirring the stinky onion concoction...not so much.  Made her eyes water!

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Watch out, LPGA!

video
I just wish that I would have learned the fine art of golfing at her age...my swing would be so awesome now.....

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Why?

Because you always kiss your princess nih-nih when she falls asleep on the train car....silly.

Don't quote me on this but...

I'm pretty sure that her cousin did this to her.  The opening salvo of 'I'm gonna getchoo' played between cousins of all ages and generations...

This judge gives her a '10'!

 Look at that form!  Look at the pointed toes!  She jumps into the pool and Daddy's hands like an Olympian!
....and then she's thankful she made it and kisses land.....

Time to warm up

Papa wrapped Sammy up in her towel to dry off and get warm in the Mexican sun.

I just wanna sit here

Olivia needed to watch and contemplate the ocean from the beach.  So she sat on Mommy's lap for an hour and then decided she wasn't an ocean person.  No way, no how.

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Gorgeous!

She's turning heads on the beach NOW at age 3 and a half!

Saturday, January 14, 2012

I'm pooped!

She spent the evening partying it up...dancing with everyone.  And by the looks of this photo, it's close to beddy-bye time.

Always there for you

Olivia, Daddy will always be there for you protecting you.  Especially when you turn 14.

Where's the pool boy?

Sammy is just lounging around for the time being on the air mattress...wish I was there!
