The Latest With Bubs

I turned around to look at New Fish during Red Fish's piano lessons and found her mediating. The red lipsticks really makes the image. She makes me laugh.
Cute kiddo pulled her second tooth out herself. She wanted to make her own little tooth pocket pillow to leave things for the tooth fairy so she sewed it by hand.

New Fish and I went on a mommy/daughter date to the climbing gym. She mostly did some bouldering and climbed all over like a little spider.

She got to ski with a friend this month and she was so excited that we could barely contain her. I lost her in the trees and was completely freaking out. She is becoming such a great little skier. I have to keep a very close eye on her.

She constantly has a giant stack of library books in front of her. She read this stack in one afternoon.

She has been trying to increase her flexibility as has been trying hard to get her splits. She is very very close. I have never been able to do the splits. She must have gotten her flexibility from Two Fish

I love skiing with this little family of mine.

Road Trip

The girls and I took a little road trip. My grandma has been living in an assisted living for the last while. She has been having a hard time. She needed some cheering up. She doesn't always keep everything straight but she remembers everything about my kids. Their relationship with Grandma is special. There is no other word for it. The girls decorated her assisted living with Valentines. It was a good project for them and they took great pride in it.

My grandfather "Bockum" recently caught incureable pneumonia and he has been in the rehabilitation unit next door to Grandma. Grandma stayed there for a long time last year. This is rough. Seeing my grandparents health fail them is difficult. I was Asia's age when I lost three of my great grandparents and I remember exactly how it felt. My girls have a really special, close relationship with their great grandparents and they know nothing of loss. They know things are different now and I've been so impressed with the way they have behaved this weekend. It is not easy for two young kids to spend all day sitting in nursing homes and waiting.  They also decorated Bockum's room with hearts and Valentines decor.

Mimi's Birthday

We threw Mimi a surprise birthday party after skiing today. We did it at her house because she is having a hard time leaving the house.  Mimi has been dealing with some serious health problems so these milestones and moments together are extra tender right now.

The Rest Of January

The girls' current past time- making beaded keychains in the shape of animals. Aunt M.E. gave them the beads for Christmas.

She still loves our dog Lautrec.

One random night we went to the mall for Family Home Evening and rode the crazy motorized animals they have there. They didn't go quite as fast as the girls had hoped but they were still ridiculously fun. Sometimes you have to be spontaneous and enjoy the crazy. Scott was purely a spectator on this one.

New cheetah print glasses.
