Halloween was cold and rainy. I took Mae out and she got spooked after just the second house. I had to give her a pep talk to keep her going. She got her groove back after house #5 – she was feeling the weight of her bag. She knew she was making the big score. She didn’t want to stop. And. She didn’t. Until she climbed the stairs of every house on our block. When we hit the last house she proclaimed: I have enough candy to last until Valentine’s Day!

That’s my girl.

Let’s see: there was the Beat Generation – Generation Y – Generation X – Generation Hipsters (which I still don’t get – what’s up with the stupid hats and skinny jeans?) — I’m officially coining the phrase – iGeneration. Mae will be the leader and spokesperson.

Twillerbee’s need lunch, too

October 15, 2012

I’ve just been informed that she indeed will be a Twillerbee for Halloween. She’s been fine-tuning her wings and such the last several days – it must be a tiring job to be a Twillerbee – one which requires a lunch break.

Feels like rain

Think she’s ready for rain?

Halloween Preview

I think she called this her Twillerby costume. I’m sure she’ll remind me again once it’s Halloween. She had to try it on to make sure everything fit and everything was just right for the big night.

Holiday Wear

It was Leah’s idea for the sisters to wear the same dress on the beach in Mexico.

I don’t know. Don’t ask me. I just take the photographs.

Faces of Mae

September 21, 2012

Mae went to her sister’s school last night for a welcome back BBQ. I didn’t go – I wasn’t feeling so hot – but I’m a lot better this morning (just in time for the cold cold rain falling). Mae will be going to the same school next year, and the BBQ was just the thing to psyche her up for the transition. They had all sorts of fun things to do for all the kids (grades 1 through 8) – and, from what I hear, Mae sampled just about every activity – including face painting.

Mae lives life large every single day.

Oh — and according to my countdown app, there are just 345 Days, 23 hours until Mae goes off to 1st Grade — full time — all day — giving me — FREEDOM! What I’ll do with my free time is unimportant – I’m sure I’ll figure something out — just 8300 hours to go…
