Spring is HERE! I have almost made it to spring break and I am blogging outdoors in the sun while sassy takes a nap after a day in the sun.
Oh my god I am so happy!
Lily is too scared to go on the big girl swing. Lucky she is a skinny minnie.

Her favorite part of the park is the bridge.

Daddy got her on the big girl swing. She tolerated it but then made him put her back in the baby swing. Seat belts are for safety daddy.

Channeling her inner gangsta'

Do you still have that damn camera mom.

This is all you get. Sorry sweat pea your even a good subject when your hiding:)

FFF Unique

I have blogged about this before and Peter says it is okay. Peter and Lily's bond was not immediate. I was immediately consummed with all this love as our family formed. I think that it was full of uncertainty for both Lily and Peter. As a result their bond took some time to stew like those crock pot meals I love so much. I will tell you that good things come to those who wait. They still knock horns every so often but Peter is the only one who gets these words. Here daddy I brought this for you cause your my best friend! And that pretty much sums it up. These are my favorite pictures of the two of them.

Don't want to forget

Lily has some funny bedtime routines. First this is what the crib she sleeps in looks like. On the left we have Tigger Tiger and on the right we have Apple Tiger. Daddy tried many names for Mr. Apple Tiger. Suitable names like George and Fred and then he threw out Apple and it stuck. We also have a Cheese Apple Tiger somewhere in there. Apple Tiger and Tigger Tiger are a must the rest are on some sort of rotation I don't understand.Apple Tiger must hold a sock. What is the sock for, its for her nose of course. Yes tissue will not do it must be a sock. (Now the story is only a little sad cause Lily gets bloody noses and the sock is just in case one appears in the middle of her slumber) Why it is a sock I will never know.

Last but not least here are her three blankets. Snow blanket first, butterfly blanket in the middle, butterfly side up, and last but not least ABC blanket.

So there you have it one crowded crib for one big girl.
And just in case my hubby reads this camera for my Bday is now a must do you see the color. What is that?

FFF Then....

This weeks theme is then........
Here are Peter and I before Miss Lily this is taken in Santa Cruz The place we fell madly in love. AHHHHHHHH!
Here is Lily patiently waiting for us. There is a locket around her neck that was meant for her foster mom Evelyn. I remember asking if I should clarify that the necklace was meant for Evelyn and not Lily. I was told it would be self explanatory. Hee Hee.

Here is Lilyana on pick up trip trying desperately to forget about the strangers in the room. If I just stare at my pretty fingers and pretend to be somewhere else perhaps these crazy people will leave me alone. Poor girl hasn't had a moments peace since then. Said strangers still won't leave her alone!
Go check out for more.

Peter and I and some friends of ours went to Tahoe for the weekend sans Lilyana. We had a wonderful time but I missed mi princesa like crazy. Two nights is the longest I have been away from her. I was so happy to see her this evening. We did however manage to have quite a lot of fun! A little friend we found under a rock. Quite menacing for a little guy.
Fun with ice.

The girls.

Must have coffee!

We watched a parade. We had great seats.

Saw the easter bunny

What in the world is that beard all about ?!?
The boys went on a hike while the girls napped. They got some beautiful pictures while we got our beauty rest.

The gang on our way home.
