For comparison’s sake

Friday, October 27th, 2006

If I told you I just took this picture of Daisy, would you believe me?

As you might guess from the quality, that picture was taken 6 years ago and is Tabitha at 20 months (the age Daisy is now). The next one is actually Daisy.

So this proves Daisy is a carbon copy of Tabi, right? […]

Daisy speak

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

Edited to add a couple more that came to me this morning (and to fix a spelling error)

I need to get these down so I have a reference for the future. These are some of my favorite phrases that have come from Daisy lately.
“Wook at me. I a pincess!” - said while donning a crown
“Mommy, […]

Today Tabitha learned of Pluto’s demise- she wasn’t pleased. She kept repeating that she lost a planet. Tomorrow I need to Google the statement issued by Mickey Mouse because she thought that was pretty darn funny.
I’ve been trying something new this week- sleeping. I have no problem falling asleep every night, but I dream so […]

mundane title

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

I’m on that “getting rid of stuff” kick again. I went through a few kitchen cupboards last week and got rid of every sports bottle and souvenir cup we had up there. Most of them were full of dust because they never get used. I also got rid of a few gadgets that have not […]

October pics

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

I haven’t posted new pictures in awhile so I finally put up October pictures. Included are pictures of the girls in their Halloween costumes as we went to a Disney Halloween party last night. I’ll add a few more next week after Halloween proper.

Nap time

At least the new rug is comfortable

now a real post

Friday, October 20th, 2006

I [heart] our new park group, I must say. I wake up every Friday morning not dreading where we have to be but looking forward to where I *want* to be. I rarely like group events and the amount of parties I’ve skipped out on is astounding to the point where some people have […]

Because I’m too lazy for a real post

Friday, October 20th, 2006

Me: Daisy do you have a dirty diaper?
Daisy: No
Me: No? Is your diaper dirty?
Daisy: No
Me: If I look in your diaper will I see a dirty diaper?
Daisy: No
Me: Is it clean?
Daisy: No clean diaper
Me: Is it wet?
Daisy: No
Me: Is it invisible?
Daisy: Ummmm, yes


Thursday, October 19th, 2006

Daisy: No grr, no grr
Tabitha: Okay! I won’t.
Me: Did you growl at her?
Tabitha: Only once.

I take it back

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

Cold is no longer the word. Gotta love fall in SoCal. Wake up freezing so you get dressed in pants and perhaps long sleeves, then have it instantly be hot and have to go change your clothes. Late spring and early summer are a little different because the cloud cover lulls us into thinking we’ll […]

It’s cold here at the Anc house. Well, I’m cold, my youngest is desperately trying to pull the footies off here pj’s insisting they are socks and she wants them OFF! I, however, am huddled in one of Chris’s sweatshirts and hot pink warm socks.
Yesterday we struck out early to squeeze in a […]

Another week begins

Monday, October 16th, 2006

I’m feeling fallish today. I’ve got my cowl neck sweater on and I’ve put flannel sheets on the bed. I wish I had a crockpot meal on my menu this week to complete the feel. Of course, by Friday it’ll be back up to the low 80s so this feeling won’t exactly last.
We did […]

can I post

Sunday, October 15th, 2006

It’s already 8:00am and I’m starting to type, I’m sure the family all be coming out of their rooms in moments preventing me from posting. I just deleted a post I started on Thursday and never got the time to finish and it’s now totally irrelevant.
I would like to know how it is possible for […]

salt dough

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

This morning I made salt dough so the kids could make ghosts. Daisy wouldn’t even touch it at first, but Tabitha thought it a great activity. Eventually Daisy poked her little dough round and proclaimed “I did it!” We baked it as is and though she refused to decorate it with a marker (she did […]

Ladybug, ladybug, fly, fly away

Tuesday, October 10th, 2006

We’ve have ladybugs in our care for the last three weeks. We bought a Ladybug Dome before we left on vacation and when we returned our ladybug larvae were waiting for us. Tabitha was simply thrilled, as I knew she would be. It’s something I’ve wanted to get for years, but I always put off […]

it was a good day

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

This morning started off with me making pancakes for the family. We then headed out to recycle and hit the new Target (eh, I was underwhelmed) for browsing. Once home, lunch was enjoyed and then Tabitha and I went to a play date. Daisy slept almost the entire time we were gone affording Chris a […]

in the night

Saturday, October 7th, 2006

Chris is out at the Kings game this evening so it was just me and the girls. The two of them put on a concert for me by beating upon overturned bowls and buckets with wooden spoons. They played together and separately while I researched some science stuff on the internet. Once I got Daisy […]

Friday post

Friday, October 6th, 2006

Yesterday we had a play date with friends we haven’t seen since I think May so it was definitely good to see them. Tabitha and I made a cake in a jelly roll pan and the the girls used Halloween cookie cutters on it and they each frosted and decorated their piece of cake. Daisy […]


Wednesday, October 4th, 2006

Our Map Skills lesson today was to go out and map our neighborhood. The weather may say only 75º but it was hot just walking in the sun with no breeze. It took us about an hour total and Tabitha loved every minute of it. Daisy just loves being out in the stroller and then […]

Day 1

“I wonder what we forgot.” I said as we headed in the dark towards the freeway on Day 1 of our long awaited vacation. The answer: the kids’ carryon bag. Thank goodness Chris knew that answer right away and we were able to have my fil […]
