She Missed Her 75th Birthday

We lost her to kidney cancer six months ago - today would have been my grandmother's 75th birthday. I miss her so and will always appreciate the lessons she taught me.

In honor of my grandmother, a few of my favorite pictures of her.

We love you!


Duh, nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh... duh, nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh...

... BATGIRL... and Robin (aka daddy)!!

Mommy made an appearance too... dressed as ::drumroll:: MOMMY!
Trick-or-treating happens on my dinner break every year, since Halloween falls on one of the sacred TV news days in the ratings period. But that's OK, we still have so much fun walking through our neighborhood, going door to door, and watching our shy little one get bolder and bolder with each doorbell she rings. She still whispers though when anyone asks her a question.
Shy or not, our Batgirl certainly came home with a lot of sweets!
I hope you all had a Happy Halloween!!


The Little Chef

I must admit, Georgia really surprised and impressed the heck out of me the other night. She really woke me up to the fact that I don't have her all figured out, and that sometimes, this mommy just needs to step back and watch what my little one can do instead of thinking I know what she's capable of doing.

It's not uncommon for Georgia to help me out in the kitchen when I'm cooking. I usually assign her the "stir this" or "dump that into there" duties. But tonight, I figured I'd let her take on a bigger duty, and boy did she impress! I showed her how to dip a fish strip in the egg, and then told her to pass it to me for the breading. But she refused to give it to me after the egg bath, which I started to think was just her four year old stubbornness coming through... but then she proceeded to show me she could bread the fish strip too and lay it nice and straight on the pan. And she proceeded to do this perfectly with every fish strip.

Her smile says it all.
My how I love this girl. Lesson learned: step back and watch before I make assumptions. This little one is growing up fast.


Just to Make You Smile.

Here's my crazy girl.

That's her Halloween candy bucket on her head... if you couldn't tell.
Yep, that's my girl!
