Happy Turkey-Day!

One of these two is about to go in the oven :)

Of course, where sitting on the counters was concerned, Vivian could not be left out ...

Smiles Are Hard To Capture

As much and loud as Vivian sometimes giggles; and as smiley and giggly Annelee is starting to be - I seem to have a hard time capturing their smiles on camera.  Despite their seriousness, I like this photo ... you can really see here that we have a blue-eyed girl and a brown-eyed girl:

Here's a half-smile from Annelee:


The problem with Annelee's photos is that every few shots, this would happen:

So, it was easier to have Daddy hold her:

But Daddy felt that more focus on the feets was needed:

Then I stopped taking photos for the day.  The End.

The Birthday Girl

I think she had a fun day.  After preschool, we opened presents (the dress up chest was a huge success, as were the play dishes and the ice cream set), had dinner, then her friend Rowan came over, we opened more presents and had cake (Anne - you'll be pleased to know that it was real cake :)  )

Tomorrow, we leave for Virginia for the Lupus Walk and more birthday celebration.  More photos when we get back.

How did that happen?  How can Vivian already be turning three?  :)

And what a year it has been, especially the last five months or so.  She's become a wonderful big sister, moved from the toddler group into pre-school, potty-trained during the day, become even more verbal (that's both good and bad, in case you are wondering ;) ) and has a vivid imagination - lots of fun!

So, just like for her first and second birthday, here are pictures representing the last 12 months.

Alles Liebe zum Geburstag, mein kleiner Spatz!

The State of the Economy ...

Halloween Sneak Peek

Just a couple of quick photos of the two gals.  More once I've looked at the rest of the shots.
