for the relatives

If you've stopped by today looking for a sewing project or some sort of craft, I apologize. Since several relatives who live in other states visit me here on a regular basis, I've decided to take advantage of the space I have here. On the weekends I'll be posting pictures of the kids to keep them up-to-date. Please stop back on a weekday when regular programming will resume.

Ellie asks me on a daily basis when spring will be here. Not soon enough for either of us. In the meantime, she's been drawing her heart out with sidewalk chalk. This work of art was dubbed "Mama and baby chickie". Yesterday she drew a race course for her remote control jeep. At first it just looks like a picture of Trixie playing in her kitchen. Check out the footwear. She rolled over to me during the week yelling "I skating, I skating!" There's more than one way to play with fisher price buses.
Glenn starts lacrosse next Saturday. He's pretty geared up - literally. I never wanted any child of mine to play football or hockey because of how rough it was. I obviously had no idea how much protection was required for this sport before I agreed to it. I may need to use meditation during the games. If that doesn't work - medication.

I hear you about the protective hear. AJ is signed up for tackle football this fall. I've already warned him there's a good chance I might not be able to watch.

Harriet said...

Er, that's protective GEAR. Too many hours of tax returns today. The brain is melting.

oh, to have feet that small again!

That chalk photo with your daughter is so sweet!

Every day I am more convinced that Trixie is going to join the circus.

I'd like to see more protective coverings over my sweet Glenn's handsome face. Also, having Trixie in a helmet and elbow/kneepads 24/7 probably isn't a bad idea.
