It’s fun to be 2

A couple of quick videos demonstrating how much fun it can be just to do the simple things. Oh, to be 2 again!

Anna’s beautiful quilt

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Anna received a stunningly beautiful handmade quilt today from the Wagners, wonderful family friends back in Bartlesville.  It’s composed of photographs of Anna from her first few months with us.  I will try to post another picture of it later after I have hung it on her wall, but for now, enjoy!

I’ve been collecting pictures all week, but have not been clever enough to come up with anything to write about.  I’m just going to throw a bunch of pictures out there for you to enjoy.  Our recent highlight has been the visit of Grandma and Grandpa Winter, who arrived last Saturday (July 21) and will be staying through August 6.  Anna is having a blast playing with Grandpa, and has almost decided that Grandma is OK.

“I’ll play with anything, as long as it’s not one of the 4,372 toys that my parents have lovingly purchased for me, spending approximately $284,935 of their hard-earned cash!”

“Aunt Cheryl’s taste in summer wear isn’t too bad, either!”

“I thought Mama was NEVER going to let me sit at the big table!”

Thank you so much to Aunt Ina and Aunt Cheryl for sending Anna such lovely clothes, and to “Charlie’s Mom” for the wonderful collection of books that Anna has been reading to Grandma all week.
