{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}

A crown, platter, glasses, and lantern are all ready to celebrate the feast of St. Lucy.  We had Lussekatter and hot chocolate.  Neither of my children ate the Lussekatter, but at least Linus enjoyed the chocolate milk.

Lucy and Linus with their Grandma in the tent she made for them.  It fits over a card table.  When we set it up, Linus was fussing a little bit and wanted to be held.  Grandma went in to demonstrate, and Lucy quickly followed.  Linus saw this, stopped fussing, said, "Uh-huh!" and wiggled to be put down.  It remains one of his favorite places to play.

While Grandma and Grandpa were here, we visited the local zoo.  While the monkeys were not out, the cats were unusually active, which was fun to see.

One day while playing with blocks, Lucy quite spontaneously picked up these two blocks and said, "Look Mama, got my camera.  Take a picture."

  1. I was getting all excited when I read your son's name Linus. I had to double check to see if that was his 'real' name - I have a Linus. I still love that you are using it, even if a blog name. I enjoyed your 'pretty,happy,funny,real' and discovering your blog!!

  2. I love the 'camera'! Our daughter has been known to use blocks in a similar manner. Great imaginative play.

  3. A great shot of the white tiger, but I'm glad it wasn't in your back yard! :D
    Cute remark of your daughter's about the camera.

  4. So very happy to see your entries again. I've missed them. These are great.

  5. Thanks for joining! Love those feet poking out :)
