Weekend Update

It was a very busy weekend for our family. Saturday, Lallie had her very first ever school program at Barnes & Noble. It was a program in conjunction with a book drive and it was just a wonderful morning. All the students came and sang songs and showed us the things they've been doing in school.
Here, Lallie is ignoring the teacher's directions and sitting in the center of the circle, rather than holding on to the outside of the circle for a game of "Hi - Low."

Lallie apparently loves the song "boo boo boo, boo boo" as she sang quite loudly and shook her little shakers as hard as she could. Her pigtails bounced like crazy!

Here the friends are all marching in a Choo Choo Train line. Husband and I have been wondering where her latest obsession for choo-choo trains had come from.
We also had the opportunity to meet Janeen Mason. She read her latest illustrated book (actually sang it), For Baby. It is a John Denver song which Ms. Mason illustrated. It is a wonderful book, full of color and meaning and stories. We had our book autographed. It was also wonderful to hear Ms. Mason talk to the friends about her visits to Africa and about the elephants (Lallie LOVES elephants).

Later in the day, we headed off to a farm in Palm City for a birthday party. Here's Lallie and her friends playing on the tractor.

Of course, what's a party without cake (and lots of it, and suckers and the ice cream truck - yes, it came and we will NEVER be able to hide from it again!!!)

It is an every weekend ritual (either Saturday or Sunday) that daddy makes pancakes for the family. We haven't missed a weekend yet!


  1. Now that was one busy weekend, and Miss Lallie looked fabulous in every single photo - how does she do that? The shaking her noisemakers picture is my fave, she is so very serious.

    May the week ahead be as fun-filled!

  2. She is just so darn cute. I love seeing pictures of her.

    You know we do pancake Saturday in the Molly Lou house too. :)

  3. She is just too cute! Love all her little pictures. And, I wish someone made pancakes for me every weekend...actually making anything for me would do:)

  4. You guys were way busy! SO cute that dad makes pancakes! I LOVE Lallies name!

  5. Hi! Thanks so much for reading! I got the travel cup w/ the knit cozy from Barnes and Noble! I didn't see it on their website anymore though. However, if you go to and search for thing like "knit cozy," then lots of handmade items similar to it will pop up!!!
