Cecilia and Felicity have created their own Alice in Wonderland game. They will take turns being Alice and the White Rabbit and chase each other. "Wait, White Rabbit! Wait!" And off they go. Here is how you know two sisters are playing: When "Alice" catches the "White Rabbit," they hug and kiss. And then switch and the game continues. It is a perfect game for tiring them out!
I renewed my passport and got my new one in the mail today. What in the heck are they doing out there? I sent them a perfectly fine pair of photographs of myself and the photo in the passport is me, I think, under a bunch of lines and bright red! I look like a tomato, to the extent it even looks like me. No wonder terrorists can get into this country if pictures don't even resemble the person anymore. Geez!
Well, I packed up the board games, the Wii games, and about 1/3 of the kitchen. I'm going to start having nightmares of boxes chasing me trying to swallow me into storage. I've also packed up almost everything that hung on the walls (excluding crucifixes and the girls' room). Overall the packing is going well. Today I'll be focusing on catching up on laundry and packing our closet.
Cecilia and Felicity seem to understand what is going on and are so far unphased. But Elizabeth has been very clingy of late. Maybe it is teething. Or maybe she knows something is going on and she doesn't understand it. But she will beg me to hold her for hours. If I put her down she can sometime be very upset and yet sit perfectly calm in my lap. I'm beginning to wonder if the changes in the house as the boxes mount and all the packing is making her nervous as her environment is changing.
We made homemade pizza using Melanie's Pizza Sauce recipe. Mmm mmm good. As she suggested, I also did half wheat and half all-purpose flour with some flax seed for added bonus. If I can just stretch the dough a little thinner I think we will be all set!
We have a wall hanging of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with various Velcro pieces the girls can put on, pull off, move around, etc. I snagged this shot today when I saw Elizabeth walking around with "Toodles" (a Mickey-head shaped machine helper) stuck to her rear.
We call these Elizabeth's Olivia pants. The pajamas actually come with a different top but as I was wiping the bathroom floor of spillage, she fell head first into the tub. I caught her mid fall so her bottoms are dry but her hair and top part of her shirt got soaked. Hence the different shirt, but I cannot put these pajamas on her without wanting to call her Olivia. Gotta love that pig!
