Monday we endured a little rain and visited Sm*llwood’s.  Most of the pumpkins were gone (that’s okay, we already have one),

but there were plenty of animals to look at and feed.

2010smallwood1

Miah did the feeding, Ami just looked from a safe distance.  Here she’s looking at the “unny”.

So what did they enjoy the most?  Swinging in the Bee swings.

The Birthday Continues

October 25th, 2010

2010Ami21b

Ami got more practice blowing out her candles, with the extended family celebration and then in Sabbath School.  So her birthday seemed to last three days.

2010Ami21c

She wasn’t the only one with a birthday last week.

2010Ami21

When Papa asked Miah how old Auntie Tisha was, we were all eager to hear her response.  I guess it only makes sense that she would reply, “Two,” since she and Ami share the same birthdate.

2010Ami21a

Ami also got more “practice” eating cake, and opening gifts . . .

2010Ami21d

Someone at church, upon meeting Ami, said something along the lines of she looks just like her sister at that age. So here ↓ is a flashback of Miah at that age.  Hmm . . . I don’t see the resemblance, do you?  Other than sharing the same ethnic heritage and the same forever family, these two girls are about as different as they come.

But despite their differences, they love each other dearly.  Miah is very protective of her little sister.

And Ami adores her big sister (follows her, imitates her, misses her when they’re apart.)

The girls also really enjoy having Papa and Nana visit.  Thanks for the good weekend!

Look Who’s Two!

Ami experienced her first birthday celebration today.

2010Ami2d

You can see that she was quite pleased.

2010Ami2c

We still need practice with blowing out candles . . .

2010Ami2b

But eating the cupcake was simple enough.

2010Ami2a

Yum!

2010Ami2

She was also quite pleased with her gifts.

2010Ami2g

It didn’t take her long to get the hang of opening them!

2010Ami2h

“Now I can be like Miah!”

2010Ami2f

Happy Birthday, Ami!

Fun at the Lake, cont.

October 18th, 2010

The rare family photo.  We’ll try to get more when Ami’s bruising is gone!

Daddy’s girls sure enjoy the weekends when they get to spend time with him.  All three of his girls.

2010Olake3

We had a perfect fall day with Mr. C. and friends up at his Lake house.

2010Olake2

Miah enjoyed her time on the beach with Sharon.

2010OlakeM

Miah’s favorite part of the day?  ”Walking in the sand and the water.”

2010Olake6

I’m sure that was Ami’s favorite part, too.  (Oh, they were dressed up because we went there straight from church.  This isn’t our normal beach attire.)

2010Olake5

What a precious little face!  (She looks pretty good for 11 days post surgery!)  And what precious little feet!
