5.17.2010 "TODAY"

Remember, tomorrow is "Tuesdays Around the World!" We hope you'll link up and share your day with us! The theme for tomorrow is "Today I learned..." This can be anything - so come ready to share! What have you learned recently? We want to know!

5.17  Today
I took out the dresses that I couldn't resist buying for Zoë when she was much younger, even though the dresses were WAY too big for her then... She fits into most of them now and loves wearing dresses and twirling around, running, just to get the feel of the skirt rising up or billowing around her short little legs.

My little Katherine cut off all her hair. To me, she looks so grown-up and different it makes me want to gasp!

5.17.10 Today
Today I played with my niece. She is almost 3 months old. She is just adorable as can be!

Today I am running up to IKEA to buy my little guy a new bedspread, meeting old friends for lunch in the park, doing a "tutu photo-shoot" at 1:00 p.m., and then getting into bed! I'm also going to smile and laugh to myself when I fondly remember eating "Hornish Lame-hens" at our good friends' house yesterday evening.

Today 17/5
(Well yesterday) ~ I actually managed to get a 'reasonable' shot of ALL of my froglets!

He experienced his first fishing. He caught the rainbow trout.

Today he is driving me crazy and I love it!!!

5.17 Today
My thoughtful boy ripped, I mean "picked", some carnations out of my flower pot for me. He knocked on the back door and said, "Ta-da! Mommy! Look what I got for you!"

Today I made a wish in a Wishing Well. I hope it comes true.

    Becky - just wanna squeeeeze! Adorable :D

    Lola - What a great shot! I love all the lines all going in a different direction, and how the whole pic is basically all in the same colour scheme. Then, of course, the fun story it tells...can't help but to wonder if 'Snoopy' ends up 'scoring' ;D (and...yay, IKEA!!!...making a trip there in a couple of weeks, myself :D)
