This is what really, really, really tired looks like. 
(Sept. 29, 2014)

Spinning slo-mo

Filming me spinning in this chair in slow-motion did not prevent me from getting dizzy. 
(Sept. 28, 2014)

Swimming on Saturday

I visit the pool so often I had to get a new swimsuit because I wore the other one out completely.
(Sept. 27, 2014)

Friday night fun

Lillian and I packed about as much fun into three hours as two four-year-olds can. 
(Sept. 26, 2014)

Play it again, Sam

Randy is pretty musically inclined so he's helping me write a theme song called "Helen of Wichita," an arrangement for both voice and piano or, if Mommy has her way, another fine musical instrument.

Finger-lickin' good

Raspberries have holes in the top for a reason.

Magnificent Machinery

Julian and I met at Big Truck Night, sponsored by Parents as Teachers, and saw a ton of big, motorized vehicles. Not pictured are the fire truck, army truck, party bus, and many motorcycles we saw.

Cheesecake and candles

Dad turned 41 yesterday, so I helped him celebrate tonight with his favorite dessert, cheesecake!

Just playin' at the park

A beautiful Sunday afternoon begs for a bike ride at Sedgwick County Park and some time on the swings.
(Sept. 21, 2014)

Who was that masked man?

Julian got an awesome Buzz Lightyear costume for his birthday. Even the wings and his helmet were real!
(Sept. 20, 2014)

Not by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin

Here's photographic proof: there is no hair on my chin.
(Sept. 19, 2014)

Time to play dress up

A Snow White costume + a feather boa + long, colorful necklaces = a whole lotta fun.
(Sept. 18, 2014)

Let your French fry freak flag fly

We like French fries at Freddy's Frozen Custard so much, Lexi even wore a t-shirt to show her appreciation. 
(Sept. 17, 2014)

Fun field trip

I love visiting fire stations. In fact, I love them so much that I'm not so happy when it's time to leave.

Power of imagination

I may not be able to read (yet). But I can make up a story with the best of 'em. 
(Sept. 14, 2014)

How to succeed at Saturday without even trying

Patrick and I (along with Sasha and Lexi) enjoyed a nice evening backyard campfire. Yes, smores were involved. 
(Sept. 13, 2014)

All the fish in the sea

Shopping at PetSmart for some dog food is not a quick proposition. I have to see the lizards, and the cats, and the hamsters, and the snakes, and the kittens....

Brush brush brush

Even red-caped superheroes need to keep their pearly whites looking clean and white.

Our neighbors to the north

Jesse and Susan came all the way from Canada just to visit me! (and to see my new works of crayon art)

Fun at the fair

How much can I see, do, and eat in one visit to the Kansas State Fair?
(Sept. 9, 2014)

Little girl, big guitar

I'm at that awkward age where I'm too big for a toy guitar, but not big enough for a real one. 
(Sept. 8, 2014)

Maxin' and relaxin'

When it comes to the zebra pool, I'll do all the slashing and let Spatz do all the watching.
(Sept. 7, 2014)

A darn tootin' good name

It's hard to beat names like Spatz and Zelde, but it sure was fun helping Karl come up with names for his new little Darn Tootin kitty.

Adult assistance

Got the houseguests involved in Barbie dress up. You're never too old to change the clothes on a Barbie. 
(Sept. 5, 2014)


There was school fundraiser today at Jason's Deli. School gets money. I get ice cream. That's my kinda fundraiser.
(Sept. 4, 2014)

One more for the road

Got some new books for my birthday, so of course I wanted them in the car today.

Partying with my peeps

My classmates sang me a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday" today. I can tell already that my fourth year is going to be a great one. 
(Sept. 2, 2014)


Tomorrow I turn four, but today, I had a great birthday party with cake and ice cream. Hooray for birthdays!

Keeping up with Kira

And I thought I played hard.
(Aug. 31, 2014)

Another Super Saturday

Julian and I made our best effort to hide, but peering through the wacky window was just too much fun.
(Aug. 30, 2014)

Keeping the company clean

What better way to get the dirt off an Army truck than by washing it in some leftover rainwater?

Do a little dance

The extra ribbon wands from Steve and Hilary's wedding are perfect for when I feel like prancing around the backyard.
