We went to the park on Tuesday. Both Cutie and Ellie love to swing. Cutie gets so relaxed that he looks like he's asleep...
He's not asleep, he's just "resting his arms" as Ellie would say. I recently woke her up from a forbidden nap. She's not supposed to take naps during quiet time; when she does she won't sleep at bedtime. I woke her up and said, "Ellie, you fell asleep." She said, groggily, "No I didn't, Mom. I arms." I was laughing too hard to discuss the topic any further.

Ellie created these puppets (with a little help from me) this afternoon. She's been imitating my voice and Jason's as she plays. Quite entertaining. I hope I don't sound nearly as screechy as she makes me.

Puppets clockwise starting at the top: Jason, Cutie, me, Ellie


  1. These are too cute. I can see the resemblance. It's funny that she made hers with longer hair than yours. And don't worry about the screechy voice we know you only use that voice when you are tired!!

  2. Those are darling, Ellie did a great job. Ellie cracks me up.
