Playing Barbies

First, I said that the picture-a-day was an aspirational goal, right? I will keep trying...

Second, the girls got a lot of Barbie's for Christmas from Grandma Jo, and a Barbie dollhouse from Santa. They spend a lot of time playing Barbies these days. The dolls' conversation when I took this picture really made me laugh...

"should we all get married to each other? Girls can only marry girls, not boys. Let's go to Texas and get married!"

I think Texas is about the last place for two girls who want to get married are going to go... I wanted to tell them they could just go to Iowa instead!

Getting ready for bed

The girls are watching Dinosaur Train, their last show of the day before bedtime.

I mustache you a question...

We had a lot of fun over at Auntie Laura's house today, playing with some press-on mustaches we got Dylan for Christmas. It was a hilarious play date!

A picture a day, for a year

The past few months have brought a lot of changes, including a sadly reduced blog output. To remedy that, I'm going to try to post a picture a day, from this Christmas to next. I enjoy writing, and don't do it often enough; plus, the girls are growing up right before our eyes. They're changing so quickly it's hard to believe.

So, merry Christmas, and welcome to day 1 of a year of pictures!

These pics were taken at brunch today at Common Roots, in uptown, with Gramma Liisa and her friend Joanne.
