Evelyn had to miss her ballet classes this week, thanks to a painful wart on her foot.  The silver lining is more train time with her little sister.  They love building train layouts together.

How many days will it take us to down these chocolate salted caramel cupcakes?  Not long, I'm sure.....

Julia needs to grow a bit more so this soccer ball is more her size!

Salt melted through the snow just right to make a heart.  Awwwww...

I nominate Julia's self-chosen outfit electric and eclectic.

A one-inch snow surprised us this morning.  Julia and I took a drive out in the country, and I took this picture.  This farm is about four miles northwest of our house in Montgomery County.

What I Do

What do I do?  I let my 4-year-old princess dress how she wants and choose her lunch.  Her birthday is three months away, but why not wear birthday clothes in January?

I love the art deco style of this mosaic.  This compass points to the four corners of New York City that I observed from 67, 69 and 70 floors above ground level.

What I Saw

Degas' "Little Dancer Aged Fourteen" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  One of my favorite things I saw at the museum today.

Tonight Evelyn and I enjoyed these teeny-tiny bites of New York City deliciousness.  Really.  They are minuscule. No bigger than the diameter of an Oreo.  But flavor?  Absolutely!

The three Luster girls, checking out our shadows on the grass.

You'd never guess what Evelyn is ready for, huh?

Two Things

This is Julia's favorite pair right now...can you blame her?

Evelyn has been hard at work, painting her cardboard princess castle.  And Julia has been playing with her three-inch princess dolls nonstop.  This made finding something yellow quite easy.

The girls started a new session of swimming lessons today.  I knew the Germantown Indoor Swim Center would provide some fabulous circles for today's picture.....and it did.

Surprise!  Julia likes hummus!  So much so, she begged and pleaded with Troy to make it.  She got her wish today, and she was happy as a clam.

1:00 this afternoon found Julia and me at the Germantown Library.  Julia needed a new chapter book for bedtime, and Evelyn had six Black-Eyed Susan nominees waiting for her.  It was sooooo quiet at the library today - nobody else was there!

Homework time for Evelyn = all sorts of paper products

The letter of the day is "T."  Teddy Bear and Julia are sitting at the table in Georgetown Cupcake.  Mmmmmmm.....

Prairie Knoll Court in Germantown, Maryland.  Look closely and you'll see a little Sunshine on the sidewalk.

These awesome gymnasts are mine.  The camera software won't let me rotate the picture, so you get to view my goofballs sideways.

These geese were flying late this afternoon.  Julia got all excited because they were flying in the shape of a "V."

Sunrise this morning.  The view from our second-floor bedroom window.  The neighborhood and beyond.

Thursday, January 3, 2013


I asked Julia to help me with today's picture.  She found two heart-shaped silly bandz.....and started being silly!

Evelyn has been reading my new Kindle more than me.  She was already a bookworm, but now she is a Kindle bookworm.

Today.  Today was about spending time with the girls.  Today was spent seeing a really funny movie that the girls enjoyed.  Today we went to one of our favorite movie theaters.

Photo a Day Project

I want to put together a unique photo book for the family.  But I want it to represent more everyday things than the girls' scrapbooks.  The solution?  Following the schedule from this blog: Photo a Day.  So get ready for 365 photos in one year!
