Kirsten and Kendyl

Kirsten and Kendyl had Sarah take pictures of them for my mom for her birthday. I remember changing their diapers and babysitting them. Wow! They have changed so much. Now I have a little girl that is my own! It's so much fun getting pictures of your family as the years go by. Of all the things that are worldly that I hold on to, I don't think pictures are such a bad thing!

Here are some pictures of Abby's room. Zac recently moved all of her billions and billions of toys into her room so that we could reclaim our living room. The little chair was from her Uncle Eli and she LOVES it!! She has that chair and a little basketball chair that she loves to sit in. The swing/slide 'castle' was her big gift from Santa Claus. She can climb into the swing by herself and loves to go down the slide. I can't believe how big she's getting!!

Elliott tradition

After Zac posted the washer picture, I got some questions about it. When Rick, my father-in-law, was a baby, his parents took a picture of him in the washer with a box of detergent. My in-laws carried on the tradition with Zac and, of course, we did the same with Abby. Here are all three pictures...a strange tradition, I suppose, but everybody has their quirks, right? :o)

Parenting Pet Peeve

I had to miss work yesterday and today because Abby had a stomach bug and couldn't go to the little daycare she attends a few days a week. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem because my Mom can keep her, but Mom had a doctors appointment yesterday and today she had to go out of town. So I stayed home with my girl. Which is NOT a problem, I would much rather be with her than at work. BUT it reeeeaaaalllly bugs me that I'm a responsible parent who keeps my sick child home while other ninnies send their sick kids to daycare/school and that's why I have to use sick leave. Grrrrr. If people would be a little considerate, things in this world would run so much better...
