Auntie Laura

Here is a funny conversation I overheard the other day.

E: I sure wish Auntie Laura could move down here and be near us.
N: Me too, but she would need a new job.
E: I know! She could work at that new dog shelter that is being built down the road. She knows a lot about dogs since she has Pippa! She loves dogs!
N: No. She would get fired from that job. She would always be rewarding the dogs with treats when they have bad behavior.

Future Career

Here's something cute Elizabeth said the other day.

"Mom, when I grow up, I can't decide if I want to be a Geologist or an Artist. So I figured it out! I'm going to paint rocks! Then I can be both!"

Piano Playing Using your Feet


This is how Elizabeth likes to practice piano sometimes. She plays with her feet. I'm not sure how effective this strategy is, but she sure has fun making fun sounds!

Science Experiment



Auntie Laura came to visit. While here, she helped the kids with a science experiment. They put white carnations in food coloring, The carnations ended up being quite pretty.

Cute Things Elizabeth Says

Here are a few quotes from Elizabeth today.

"I'm going to be a rock for Halloween! I don't even care what kind. Even if I'm a Basalt rock! Of course, I'd rather be a diamond."

"Do you know who Henry Porter is? Harry Potter's evil twin."

I hope Auntie Laura has some creative ideas on how to make a rock costume.
