Splashing in the Rain

Here are Anna and Elizabeth splashing in the rain on Sunday:

And here is Elizabeth's sad ending:

Mommy's hugs can always cure head-to-toe mud!

Little Accomplishments

Here are things these rascals can do:

Count to 10 in Spanish
Brush her hair all by herself now that she sports a snazzy new haircut
Use her "phone" (Curt's old PDA)
Entertian her little sister and tolerate Elizabeth constantly chucking toys at her in the car
Do gymnastics like a champ
Ride a horse!
She's a pro at helping me make our "health shakes"
She can "write" messages if you say the letters.  If she doesn't remember one, she will go look at the fridge magnets and figure it out!

Blow kisses (as of last night)
Sign "more" and "please"
Say "Ah oh"
Play and say "Peek a boo" ("Tee too")
Point to anything she wants (she's a pretty cute, emphatic pointer)
Climb on big sister's bed by herself ("ah oh") or pretty much anything her little legs can manage
Play Pat-a-cake (Although she never completes the verse. She rushes ahead to "Throw it in the oven..." because it's her favorite part!
Nod her head for yes (she nods slowly and deliberately up and down. Very cute)
Climb in and out of the baby pool by herself
Identify all the wonderful and important people in her life
Point out her eyes, ears, eyebrows, nose and mouth (don't ask her to point out your mouth unless you want her to shove her finger in it!)

Macbook fairy!

Dear MacBook Fairy,
See...I have this blog, ya know. And two cute kids that I take lots of pics and videos of.
Problem is, our computer is nestled deep in a corner of our basement, a place I rarely get to visit without laundry in my hands or a minimum of one child in tow on the way to the garage.

So I don't really add stuff to my blog because by the time I can wind my way down to that particular corner of the basement, it is bed time or my brain is fried.
Now, if I could have a computer that can sit upstairs or I could upload stuff to as Curt drove, we visited Granny, the girls played, I waited (for E's nap, the bathroom, etc) I would be much better at all that stuff.

So. If I'm a verrrrryyy good girl, could you leave one under my pillow? Just a little one? Pah-leeeeeze?

Position Available:

Full Time Nanny
Salary: None
Job Description: Follow Elizabeth around. All the time. Please.

I turned my back twice today. Once to unload groceries and once to fold clothes.
First time: I found her on TOP of a 2-story dollhouse on TOP of Anna's bed.
Second time: I found her standing on TOP of the rickety children's table peering into the grandfather clock.

Please respond ASAP. Position immediately available.

P.S. I blame Uncle Russell and his epic toddlerhood climbing feats.
