Bride Barbie

Milly stayed with Karen and Phil tonight. Amanda and I left there after we put Milly down for a nap. She was playing with a bride Barbie Amanda had found in a box. It was a collector’s edition, but it wasn’t worth more than it originally was, so Amanda let her open it. There were a few others she didn’t let Milly play with though. We got home a little after 3v unloaded the car and dropped Harvey off, sat around for a few then headed off to the 4:00 service at church. Had Islands for dinner after. Called my parents to see how the computer-TV setup was going and it sounded like they had everything figured out. Caught up …

Digger

Did a little work this morning while Amanda took care of some laundry and packed for the weekend. Milly spent time playing with her toddler princess dolls then pretending she was a turtle in a laundry basket. We left around 1:00. Harvey wanted to come along, but Cyra’s watching the house this week and is taking her dogs with her to help keep Harvey occupied. We stopped off to see my friend Jason. He broke his leg on Christmas night so I wanted to stop in and see how he was doing. We might have stayed a little longer, but Milly was getting antsy. Still, we were able to cram in conversations about Duke, comic books and video games among …

Cat Drawing

Milly had another good night last night, though it wasn’t as good as the night before.  She’d used the potty (then closed it and put it in her bed for some reason), but she had also gone in her pullup.  Not wanting her effort to be for nothing, I offered her a choice between a chocolate chip, a dollar (which we’re giving her the option of in order to earn money towards that Arial doll) or a sticker for the Ariel Progress Chart.  She chose the dollar.  She also did #2 in the potty during her nap. It was a rainy morning today and Milly told me she wanted to look for a rainbow, so when it wasn’t too bad …

Escaping Home

Had a really hard time sleeping last night.  Last time I looked at the clock it was 4:30.  Did think of some new business ideas while I was lying there awake though. Adam and Josh slept in chairs on the porch last night.  Said it was fine until the sun came up and the birds started chirping.  Milly and Addie both slept with their Mum Mum and Pap.  Milly didn’t go down as easily last night. Amanda and Andra made tutus for Milly and Addison with material they bought yesterday. We played with the scanner some more and decided it took way too long and wasn’t automated enough. We left the Rouge around 3:00.  Trip home was pretty uneventful, though …

Milly’s First Shave

Mom said Milly did pretty good sleeping with them last night.  Dad said he woke up at one point and she had gotten on the floor. Helped Dad with Mr. Carden’s pony.  It got out yesterday and they had it running around with the horses in the fields, but they had some sort of trouble when Mom was loading up one of the horses.  Apparently one of them was in heat and the tiny pony tried to mount a horse and got kicked for his efforts.  They put him in a pen, but he kept stomping and trying to jump out of it.  I went to help Dad when Mom left.  He figured out a way to control the pony, …
