I don't know how many pictures my mom has of myself and my siblings reading on the couch like this when we were kids.

Just like Daddy

She played "going to work and coming home again" for about 15 minutes straight one day.

Dr Quinn....errr...Emma, Medicine Woman

Emma took way too much delight in giving me a "shot" when I was feeling unwell. Her pioneer outfit made me think of Dr. Quinn.

 Can you see the glee on her face at my "distress"?

Finally some sunshine and warmer weather!
 Just give this girl a bucket and she'll whip you up some delicious stew/soup/applecrisp or really anything your heart desires!

 It was warm enough to hang my diapers on the line!

 They found their helmets and now they are donned whenever they go outside, regardless of whether or not bikes are in play.

 I had to post these two pouting picture of Katie. She "couldn't" turn her too-small tricycle around.
 And now she "fell off" and called for the fire truck.
Emma was more than happy to oblige and provide emergency response.

Random Pictures

Just a few randoms from the last months.

 This is why someone invented Saturday morning cartoons.

 The dustcloths and hairbands were for pretending they were "Josephs"

 Our new (to us) van!

Katie came running inside, "Mom! Emma's eating dirt from the garden!"

A new quilt for Emma

I made a new quilt for Emma for her birthday, well I had the top done. I finally finished hand quilting it and putting on the binding a few weeks ago. While she was thrilled with a new quilt like Katie, change of any kind is hard for this girl. Thankfully it only took one night to adjust to a new quilt and not her baby, snuggle blanket any more. We also stopped putting her in her sleep sack at night too.

Naturally, Katie needed to try too!

 you not
 when you see

cheerful face?
