[ a few new pics ]

I realized that I hadn't posted any new pictures lately, so here's a few to show you what we've been up to. We see all sorts of animals in our backyard, but this was a first! Today we saw raccoons in our backyard! Usually we see squirrels, birds and cats, but not today! There were two, but by the time I got my camera the other one was gone! Crazy!

This is a picture of a squirrel if you can't tell. We've been hearing all sorts of weird noises in the ceiling of the kitchen and dining room and finally figured out that the squirrels are getting up inside the eaves of the roof and making all sorts of noises! Here he is caught in the act! Angie thought it was great of course! This is right outside the kitchen window!

Angie and I decided to make popcorn the other day, she was so fascinated by the whole process and couldn't wait to eat it! We like the real popcorn instead of the microwave kind... as you can tell Angie was super excited about it!

Play Doh creations... We made some of Angie's favorite things... or the only things I could actually make! :) That play doh is harder to work with than you think! There's a butterfly, snake, ice cream cone, 2 pumpkins, flag, flower, baby wrapped in a blanket, bottle and a house, in case you couldn't tell what they were! Oh and I almost forgot about Frosty the Snowman! My greatest creation! :) Don't laugh too hard, it was a fun rainy day activity!

Oh and these are my favorite pictures of them all! Saved the best for last! My family came over for Family Home Evening last week and my youngest brother, Lee had fun helping Angie get all dressed up and decided to join in too! :) If you know Lee, he's not usually the one to like the lime light... but he sure didn't have any problem letting me take pictures of him! :) He's 15, but it didn't seem to bother him one bit to dress up and have fun with his little niece! Lauren made Angie her "castle" and all three of them had fun playing together! Thanks Uncle Lee and Aunt Lauren for a fun night!

Wow Angie is very "FANCY NANCY" if you don't have the fancy nancy books i suggest you get them.

We don't have "Fancy Nancy", but I'll be sure to see if I can get some! Angie definitely enjoys all the frills! Can't wait for her and Tay to be able to play together!
