Hello, friends!! I have to apologize for posting so erratically...life gets in the way sometimes and I rarely find that I have the opportunity to take pictures and then sit down at the computer to post. I'm alive and doing well these days--still trying new recipes and obsessing over various things, of course, but with no time to write about them. I will try and blog more regularly in the future, but for right now, I'll share my past two months with you in photos:
Of course my family was in town over Christmas, and Sophie went ice skating for the first time.
|Putting on ice skates was a novel thing for this first-timer.|
|Sophie and Ashley|
|Aimee taking Sophie around for many, many slow loops.|
And we did have Christmas dinner with Darren's mom.
|Sophie and her Oma (and Pocahantas)|
I had a very nice meal with my sister and cousin Jenny (who came from California) at L'Auberge Chez Francois. The meal was especially enjoyable because of the company.
And more recently, here is a typical day at my house. Dress up. I feel so lucky that my girls have each other! They play together and sometimes have the sweetest moments. Have you ever seen Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings? Tinkerbell finds her long lost sister and they discover that when they stand back to back and touch wings....ok, sorry, I digress...
|Tinkerbell and Periwinkle (of Fairywinkle, as Sophs likes to call her)|
We built one of those bookcase thingys for Grace's room too. She's got more books than Sophie now! I'm redecorating Grace's room in the next few months. She's already sleeping in her big girl bed!
|Hey. We can't look glamorous ALL the time.|
Oh, and I continue to strive to feed my children like French kids. Simple foods, few ingredients. More water, less juice. I think we're doing pretty well! This is a typical breakfast for them now. Fruit, cheese, and half a croissant. Magnifique!
