The newest member to join Holly's Friday Night Skate Club - Mira! She did so well her first day and having her friend with her she was so much more confident that she skated with no buckets the whole time.
SaoSo I downloaded the blogger app to see how blogging from here would be. While its not great what I like about it is that I could use it in leu of some single picture Facebook posts and have them stay as part of my blog but then also auto publish to Facebook. There are major features lacking but for quick fast instant notes it seems to work. Lets see if I can post more then one photo.
So I'm trying to write under the pictures but in the app seems like I can't also last night I saved this as draft but I'm posting it now at 1:20pm and I don't see where I can change the time. But it's not bad.
Daddy loves Lego's. Holly enjoys them, but she could take them or leave them... That is of course unless they are princess Lego's, this Ariel set is her new favorite! Holly and Daddy had so much fun building them. She even brought them to Tanta's house
While Holly loves Tyler and considers him one of her best friends, she also likes Caitlin quite a bit. I think Caitlin is one of the main reason's she wants a baby sister. Caitlin also likes Holly quite a bit. It is interesting seeing typical development, she is hmmm maybe 20 months now and talking up a storm, but what I noticed that Holly didn't do until much later was Caitlin was following Holly around and copying everything she did. Sadly that meant Holly was being a "bad" influence, but it was so adorable watching Caitlin try and do everything Holly did.
Been a while since I posted Ice Skating Pictures. Our Friend Eric from Swim and Gym is the newest Member, so I had to take some pictures. Holly is starting to get better with the Hockey skates and more confident when a coach encourages her.
We woke up on our last day and Holly found this note from Opa! It was the sweetest thing ever! He had been leaving her little notes all week long, she loved getting them.
Here is Holly and Oma looking through some of the pictures, Oma is making a copy of her pictures for me to take home.
So I have some last video's from our trip but couldn't find the pictures to go with them so I will just post them here with the pictures of us heading to the airport
Where's Cookie Monster: When I was little, this Cookie Monster Magic Trick was one of my favorites, I remember one year when I was in about second grade when my Dad performed it for me at my Backyard Birthday Party. This was the first time Holly saw it and she loved it, she was so entertained, and she laughed and laughed It was so fun to see, thirty years later. http://youtu.be/GgYk3h_ZR7A
Hockey Buddys - While we were visiting in Florida Holly was super intrigued with Opa's Hockey game. She had never played it before, but over the week we were visiting, Opa said that she actually learned so well that she was becoming competition. He was not being easy on her, but she eventually was able to score on him and even win a few games. She was so proud of herself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WX-i4FOm-uU&feature=youtu.be
Opa decided to stay home from the airport so that Oma could come back and wait with us at the gate
Here is a Sad Holly and a Sad Oma, both not wanting to say goodbye, but after 11 Days, Holly is ready to go home
Bye Bye, Oma! We love you so so so much!
And then we are off to the airplane
Holly is all tucked into her seat and ready to play with her toys
She was so cute wanting to ready the emergency manual
She took it very seriously. The flight was uneventful, she is an amazing flier. I don;t remember if she slept, she must have at some point. We arrived home at around 11PM and she was happy to see Daddy and excited about the cool weather. We had an amazing time in Florida, but boy did Daddy miss us!
