Visiting The Dormouse and The Caterpillar at school.
Look at that smile. Talk about Mona Lisa. I can't say enough good about this child. She has been such a joy and am so glad she entered my life. She's starting into the pre-teen years and judging from my experience with that age, it's going to be some interesting years. All those stupid hormone changes and things like that coming up. I told her parents that I wanted a month with her this coming summer.
This kid is so funny. She picks out her own clothes to wear to school every day - or anywhere. I can't remember what she had on under that coat but the whole outfit together with those shoes was funny. I thought I got a picture of her sans coat but apparently not. Underneath those shoes are always mis-matched socks. She picks out those by choice. You will never see her in anything but mismatch socks. Maybe Sunday but I'm not even sure about that. She's got such a funny personality with a very dry sense of humor and totally makes the day worth getting up just to watch her. She's a singer and makes up songs. On the day after the "expected" end of the world, December 22 or whenever it was, she got up when her "clock waked up" singing......"Joy to the world......we didn't die."
I made this blanket for Alice and her fam for Christmas............and the cats totally took over it.
I love those ears.
Hey! Saguaro Cactus in Washington DC. Who knew! It's plastic, but whatever. We ate at this restaurant. I had tamales. They were..... ehhhh.....good...but the masa was completely different than the southwestern touch. When you've had the real stuff, it's hard to get away from that.
I think I'm officially out of photos of Washington DC.
Road trip, anybody??
