We be clubbin'

Wow, what a busy day so far! The family headed to the driving range so Mom could get a few whacks in before the year-end golf outing for RHS staffers. Natalie enjoyed her time there, especially when the range pro gave us a ride in the golf cart! After getting home we managed to wash all of our windows inside & out (including the storms). That was a pain in the butt, but man do they look clean! Mom is now knee-deep in the back yard digging out her vegetable garden. I can taste the carrots already. We're off to Calhoun soon (if we don't drop dead of exhaustion first).

Happy Memorial Day!

A lost art

Hope you like this picture. It isn't that great, I know, but for some reason we thought we left the camera at Cub Foods (who brings a camera to Cub to begin with?). So this evening has been filled with not only a trip to Cub but a trip back to try and find the camera along with a massive search of the entire house. Good times. For the record, the camera was in the basement (where I tossed it while bringing the water softener salt downstairs). By the way, my girls are doing well -- very giggly, and both of them are walking all over the place like a big girl!

17 Months

Natalie celebrated her 17-month birthday by walking all by herself multiple times. When I walked into daycare to pick her up she walked right over to me as if she's been doing it for months. Then after some convincing, we had her do it for the camera. Joey considers her "walking" now, but I'm not holding my breath. Unless it's for food or something else really cool, she won't do it. But hey, it's something! And it's so cute!

Natalie helped put the finishing touches on the lovely new addition to our front yard! It will be fun to watch both of them grow up over the years.

Monet, Monet!

Natalie produced some impressive artwork today, courtesy a "feather painting" session at daycare. She is 100% healthy and in a great mood -- it's nice to have her back to full speed, giggly and all!

Big Day!

Natalie had her first haircut today! Cousin Molly was nice enough to cut Noodle's hair in her at-home studio. First we had lunch and played with cousin Lucy! Then it was down to the chair. Natalie didn't like the cape, so instead we just let her hair fall around her. She did so well -- she was a model customer! She even got a few layers! Thanks Molly!

Getting back to normal?

Natalie seems to be rounding the corner, getting back to normal. The rash is totally gone and she ate pretty well today. Hopefully she will be firing at 100% by the end of the weekend!
