I was going thru some photos today and came across some I had forgotten about. Like these from our trip to California last Spring. I think they are photos taken by my sister. Hard to believe that trip was almost a year ago.

For those who don’t know what Kiwi Crates are, they are kits shipped directly to your child which include everything needed to create multiple craft, science, art and game projects. Each month there are different projects to complete. I wasn’t sure how much Naomi wouldContinue reading “A Round of Applause for Kiwi Crates”
For a tea party.
Lili woke up early this morning, wanting to know if Santa had arrived. She was trying hard to patiently wait for Naomi to wake up, not able to lie still and wanting to talk. None of us knowing exactly when Naomi will finally begin to stir, I asked Lili if she wanted to wake Naomi.Continue reading “Ending Christmas Day”
