just like big sister

Meredith trying to copy how Evie had her head laying down in the pictures of her in the pink dress. Isn't she cute!

HRH Evelyn

She thinks she's a princess in this dress - she really does. See her loyal subject? See how elegantly she twirls?
She's grace personified. Just look at that face, no really let's look closer.
That's my princess all right. Chewing on grass.

Meri and her bugs.

Three guesses as to what Meri is doing.

No, it's not aerobics.

Nope, she's not practising her skiing form.

And it's not the Chicken dance either. (all these spaces are for your protection... I wouldn't want the next picture to pop out at me!)

It's her preying mantis impersonation.
This little guy was walking up and down some moulding Nathan was painting in the backyard.
The girls were sooo excited and came running inside the house to pull me out and look at him. Personally they give me the creeps, they're so alien looking. I can just imagine giant 12 foot ones taking over the planet. I'm sure that's just from some really bad scifi movie though. But anyway, Meri loved the way his creepy little self bounced up and down - so she spent the rest of the day doing it herself. She'd say "doooown ..............uuuuuuuuuup" . So much cuter than the original creepy little thing.

growing up

Do you realize that she'll be 5 in less than 6 months? Or that she'll be in kindergarten next year?

new kitchen stuff!

I know, I know - I promised girlie pictures. But honestly, they're not making me too happy today. So I'm going to show off the kitchen instead. Hmph, teach them, won't I? We ripped down the wallpaper and painted the cabinets. And I made that valence - I even followed a pattern! Then we put some stuff in the glass so you can't see my mess. It's soo much brighter in there. Too bad it's still so small that you can't open the oven and the dishwasher at the same time, heck you can't even stand side by side in there!
Is anybody sufficiently impressed enough to condone me buying me this horrifically expensive pot? I want a pretty soup pot since we eat soup in the winter a lot and I hate having my ugly one on the table. Actually on sale it's not too bad. But still if I'm going to buy an expensive soup pot I'm going to get the real deal and not a Martha Stewart one but I saw it in a magazine and had to track it down because I have no life. I don't really think I could commit to that expensive of a colored pot though, I'd have to go with white. I really do like her line of stuff though - check out the iron stone serving pieces!

My dear blog readers, I have been scarce this week. The reason? I set myself the task of paring down images from the past year so they could either be printed or backed up. It was not an easy task. It is done and I am pleased to say that I found some real gems! Like this one. In my learning I'm often trying to capture a specific thing or practising some technique and I tend to over look the ones that don't fit what I'm doing at the time. This perfect picture of Meri is "soft", it's not really in focus. But I look at it now and looove it! Where did that baby go? That was just this winter. I'm soo glad I'm not super organized and just now deleted images - who knows what I might have lost. See - procrastination has it's good points.

I will now allow myself to load the pictures off my camera so you can see what we've been up to lately. I promise funny outfits and bugs.
