Wendy's Mall Santa Pic. We've never missed a year, I don't think, of Santa pics. I don't just mean since having our kids. James and I, when dating, got our pic taken with Santa, then, when married---with our two cats. We took Daisy and Shasta to Pets Mart for pics with Santa. Yeah, it's a crazy obsessive compulsion now. When this pic was done, I was 9 months pregnant. I risked breaking my water walking that mall, but come Hell or high water, the Santa pic happens!
This was taken at the airport--it was to be Linc's very first plane ride to Texas to see family! He was such a newbie and he traveled so well. Didn't fuss a bit!
While visiting, we (he and I) stayed at Julie's, as did Nicole, and we girls, and dude, had a fantastic get-together!
Aunt Katie snuggling lil' Linc while we ate a delicious lunch outside. We'd shopped 'til we dropped!
Wendy enjoying a bribe toy. You know, the kind you grab at Target when a really big occasion comes up, and you don't have time to thoroughly, or properly, establish the expectation with the usual long, drawn out reasons for her future perfectly agreeable behaviour, which is absolutely necessary for this event----you tell her she'll be rewarded if she behaves like a big girl, and she does, and then she says, "MOMMY! Let's go get my REWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Linc's BIG toe was my screen saver.
Ballerina at Cafe Sip N' Play... Wendy, because she was only "stree" and because she's her, loves to just perform in the middle of anything, any group of adults, doesn't matter. She's "on!"
Love of Zhu Zhu under way...
Realizing for the first time that my Linc is BIG! A BIG ole boy!
A house James and I LOVED back in Vancouver. We took this pic hoping to make one like it here in Texas.
This is not my child. Okay, this is my child. On cola.
Children's Museum. Portland.
A frustrating drive. Wendy screaming, Lincoln fussing, traffic.
Tu Tu Zhu Zhu day at the park....
And Daddy napped...
My big ole boy gettin' bigger!
During the delivery of our shipment, I was frazzled by all the damaged furniture crossing our threshold, so I had to get Wendy out of the way, and we played at the mall. I was not a happy camper when I took this. Wendy had a great time though!
A Rainbow! Taken the other day!
The dramatic sky that night...
Last week, at the mall. I get to pick up the pics on Friday!
I find it so adorable when adorable kids think babies are adorable.
Watching Wonder Pets last night.
