Horse swing (video)

I think this was her birthday present two years ago... Better late than never, right?

Horse swing

A is for Amazing

Molly has taken it upon herself to wash the windows. She came out with a wipe at first and I asked her if she'd like some window cleaner and paper towels and she got super excited. Now she's going to town.

Reason #6,923 my daughter is AWESOME.

New Disney Store

They recently moved the Disney Store to a new location in the mall up the street. From an interactive Princess mirror to a coloring area with a huge screen, Molly is in heaven.

The sign of a good field trip.

We gave another girl from Molly's class a ride home and as we pulled into her driveway to drop her off she whispered to me to be quiet because Molly fell asleep. Such a sweetheart.

Crazy monkey child

Working on her balance I suppose.

My cutie pie

It's a work in progress.

The park by our house only has the infant swings so Molly hasn't had a lot of exposure to the big kid swings. She was doing well with legs together and toes pointed until I thought to take a picture. Kids, they always know.

J is for Jumping

That's right girls, tire yourselves out.

S is for share

S is also for stubborn.


Molly enjoying some swing time and down time and the lovely CA day.

Cirque du Tangled

Molly swinging on her hair (rope) into her tower (heavy bag).

Happy Birthday Jessie!

We headed to Chuck. E Cheese today for Jessie's 4th birthday party. Molly had lots of fun going on all the rides. Her favorite was the big white horse/derby ride. I asked her to smile for the camera and she turned pirate on me.


Chai woke me up a little before 7:00 as she was in her crate (whiny butt). I let the dogs out and when I got back inside I checked on the girls (thank you iPhone web cam app) and they were up. Well, Temperence was. Molly looked a little confused as to why anyone was awake.

And they are out!

Night night girls.


Night vision web cam comes in handy for sleepovers.

(Note - time stamp was off an hour)

Reason #5,267 N is an awesome dad...

N tied some rope up to the bracket the heavy bag is on so Molly could act out Tangled.

Heavy bag = tower
Rope = Rapunzel's hair

Molly = bliss

Hide n' seek

Holding on

I think Molly is contemplating how many knots she can tie in this rope.

SUCH a patient horse

I am very impressed Sundae (horse pictured) tolerated all the little ones.

Grooming the horse

Molly fed a horse

The horse walked right up to her and she was the first one to feed a carrot. HUGE smile afterwards. This is her feeding the horse a second (or was it the third?) carrot.

Cute n' fluffy bunny

So soft.

Field Trip No. 2

The grandparents of one of Molly's classmates live up in the hills and have quite a bit of land. They invited her class up so they could see their bunnies, sheep, and horses. The kids all had a blast.

Costume Change No. ???

Honestly, I lost count at this point.

Costume change No. 2

First costume change was into the Sleeping Beauty dress, but that got wet with water. This was the second costume change of the day.

Chai and Scout

They do this All. Day. Long.

I wish I had started recording a few minutes earlier as Chai came running at full speed from the back of the yard and jumped a good 10 feet away from Scout and STILL cleared him. Crazy freakin' dog!

Class picture at fire station

Full throttle

... and loving every minute!

Let 'er rip!

Fire Station Field Trip

One of the fire fighters showing the kids what they would look like if there ever was a fire in their house.

Treats for the firemen

Molly's school had a field trip today at a fire station. I signed up to make treats and did a couple of batches of fudge. Molly insisted on carrying it. However, when asked by the fireman if she made it she told him her mommy did, but she helped by staying back from the hot stove.

C is for cookie

This is my cookie. If I don't make eye contact I will not have to share.

Toy Story soup?

Quote of the day

I have a brain in my head, don't let the zombies eat it.

The Big Bang Theory Influence

Molly's latest obsession has been Curious George. First the tv show and then the movie. Every now and then she'll ask to watch Big Bang Theory and I'll JUMP at the opportunity. She doesn't pay a lot of attention to it and tends to get distracted by her toys while watching, but it does make her laugh. However, a lot more is sinking in than I realized.

We were in the car and I'm waiting for her to buckle herself in (a constant battle). I know she's found something in the back seat far more interesting than getting IN her car seat and buckling herself in, but I still ask, "Molly, have you buckled yourself in yet?" while looking forward, knowing full well the real answer is a resounding NO!

Molly cheerfully responds, "Yup!"

Before I have a chance to catch her in the lie I can feel her slowly move forward between the seats as she's trying to sneak up on me. I wait to see where this is going to go when I hear a small whisper.

Molly: "Bazinga!"

Yup, I got Bazinga'd by my 4 year old.... and it was AWESOME!!!

Later she turns to me and says, "When Sheldon's in the ball pit he says Bazinga. He's silly."

Puddle jumping

Finally got her in the ladybug rain boots and jacket!

Quote of the day

Molly, put your jacket on.

I can't. I'm texting.

(dad gets full credit for that one)

Molly made daddy dinner

"Paper soup and paper drink for when daddy gets home."

Got knots?

The reason Molly will be wearing Velcro shoes for the foreseeable future.

I think Molly spent a solid 20 minutes playing on these wooden barrel horses.

Winding down from the day's activities with some story time with Granny.
