A Smile and a Growing Girl

What a precious smile. Edith will smile anytime you ask her. She is such a sweet mellow girl as long as you don't try to get her dressed. She hates that. Yesterday she was three months old!

Addie enjoys putting her dolls in Edith's carseat. Yesterday she thought she would try out the seat herself. As you can see she has grown a bit in the last two years.

A visit with Bess

This weekend Bess came all the way from Tennessee to visit us. We had a great time. We played some games and ate lots of yummy food. Bess read lots of stories and probably has a few of them memorized from her three day visit. She was happy to get some baby snuggling time in. We ended our visit with the traditional Bess's Crepe breakfast. Too bad there was no nutella on hand.

Cooking Dinner

This week's adventure was cooking dinner, Polenta lasagna. Addie did all the steps, except for the marinara to prevent too much of a mess. She sliced the polenta and then layered it in the pan. Then she spread pesto on the polenta and sprinkled on some spinich. She topped the whole thing with some cheese and pine nuts. Even though she loved making the dinner and eating it raw, she only ate pine nuts once it was baked.
Taa Daa!

Fire Station Adventure

This week we travelled to Fire Station 73 in Issaquah with the Issaquah SAHM MeetUp Group. Addie didn't really care much about the tour but did perk up a little when we actually got to get in and play on the Ladder Truck. She was still pretty timid and is a little young to be that excited, but I think she had a good time. I would say that she liked "driving" the truck the best. She got a plastic helmet as a souvenier and enjoys wearing it around the house. Now that we have been home she has newfound interest in her fire engine book.

Edith enjoyed her trip to the fire station by taking a nice long snooze in the sling.

I was impressed that there is an auto shutoff switch on the stove and oven whenever there is a call. Apparently a few too many firehouses burned down when the firemen left while they were cooking. Unfortunately this fire station did not have a pole.

Post Number One

Well hello everybody. I thought I would join the rest of the world and create a blog. The real point is to share our weekly adventures with the grandparents. I can't imagine anyone else really being interested.
