What’s going on lately

As my Auntie pointed out, I haven’t posted for a while. My brain’s been going in a lot of different directions, and while I’ve been feeling like I should write about some things, it just hasn’t happened. So, instead of a deep, thought provoking post, here are some things going on around here lately, complete with illustrative links.

Zoe’s new favorite show is Word World. I highly recommend it. She’s watched 2 episodes about 4 times each, and can now spell rope and ball from memory.

We have a new car- Tina. She’s a lovely 06 Mustang– a little sister to our 65 Mustang, Parker. Parker is named for the amazing Mrs. Dorothy Parker, and Tina is named after her heir apparent, Tina Fey. Just for the record, the car I drive doesn’t really have a proper name, he’s just called Cool Car. For a while we were calling him Brock (after Brock Sampson) but that didn’t really stick, and Z thinks he’s a cool car, so that’s what we’ve gone with.

I had a lovely birthday, we had a tea party, stake play finished, and B and I went out for an amazing dinner. I got a spoilicious gift card for Lush and a Zutter Bind-it-all HOORAY!! I will be posting some projects I’m making with it soon.

Audrey has been going back and forth with her sleeping, (case in point- she’s supposed to be taking a nap right now and isn’t) she will wake up at 4 in the morning, completely awake and ready for her day. Not so fun. But isn’t she cute?

It’s supposed to be quite warm today, and thus is our first official pool day. Zoe can’t wait to get back in the water, we’re not going over to the pool until 11, and I think she might die of anticipation before then.
Here are pictures of her celebratory dance, performed this morning.:

Isn’t Z’s hair crazy long?

My hair, on the other hand, is not crazy long, and it’s making me kind of crazy. I’m trying to grow it out, and it’s threatening to make me insane. See:

I also got a super awesome new little camera, which I love, and I used to take those pictures. 🙂 I also have a super cool (so cool it could perhaps be called wicked cool, although I rarely use the term) wifi card that transfers the pictures from my camera to the computer magically. I love technology.

I got to see my friend Hilary earlier in the week, which was fantastic. 🙂

I’m on a rampage to clear my house of anything I don’t love- we’re surrounded by clutter and it’s making me crazy.

I think that’s all. 🙂 What’s going on with all of you?

A little PS. We’re back from the pool, and oh my goodness the screaming. Swimming lessons are in our future, to remind of the love and skill possessed last summer.

    Great post! For some reason, the fact that Brock Samson has a wikipedia entry amuses me to no end.

    I love the cute celebratory dance, and oh my gosh that hair! Brianna was about 13 before her hair got that long!! I’m jealous of that full thick head of hair. The baby is sure growing and every bit as adorable as her sister! I didn’t know you’d cut your hair so short but it’s really cute. I’m jealous you got to go swimming, it snowed here yesterday and I’m about sick to death of it. Please send some California warm our way! Auntie Me!
