Laundry day

Anna helps with the laundry in as many ways as possible. Today she scaled the basket to check out what was on the other side.

Hmmm, what's this?

If I just stretch a little further...

Did you see me?  That was so fun!

Gramma and Grampa's Visit

Gramma and Grampa came to visit us right after Christmas. We had a great time!

Grampa makes great towers!

Sometimes they're too neat to knock down

We've been playing for a while

For me?

Christmas Day was an early(ish) morning filled with presents and fun.

Our Anna-proof tree


Yea!  My Fisher Price Noah's Ark!

Does Daddy really need this present?

Can I have a little help here?

I love it!  What is this anyway?

Anna's Kitties

Anna loves her kitties. We used to worry how Jack, our grumpy cat, would do around a baby. It turns out, he's really good! If Anna gets too close, Jack might hiss, but then he runs away. He doesn't mess around. It's clear he doesn't like her (just add Anna's name to the list), so he removes himself from the situation. What a good, grumpy cat.

Ollie is a different story. Ollie is stubborn. He doesn't like to lose. If he's comfortable lounging somewhere, he won't budge for anyone or anything (except food). So when Anna's around, he'll stay put and taunt her however he can. Usually with his tail.

Anna tries to make friends with him, and she's actually pretty gentle. But he just doesn't want to play fair.

Can I?

Oh, can I?

I really want to..

Will you please let me?

Please don't pull away

Oh!  You're such a soft kitty!  I love you!

In the end, her stuffed kitty is the only cat that's always there for her.


I love my kitty.  He lets me throw him around and chew on his tail!

We have to go play now

Daddy's Dessert

Arron likes to slap some pudding in a graham cracker crust - viola! It's a pie! His favorite is using chocolate pudding. Anna thinks it's pretty yummy too.

Oh!  Can we have this again sometime!!

Ummm, tasty!
