Winter fun

These posts are becoming less frequent, but that's only because we are enjoying busy lives.  We recently had friends visit for Thanksgiving, and are looking forward to seeing more family after Christmas.  Here are some photos of what Katherine has been up to!

She loves her owl hat.  She also has a pink kitty hat, but will only wear the owl hat!  She calls it "at".

Painting!  As you can see, she took a taste of the blue paint.

Hair is getting longer - very messy after a day in pigtails.

Reading with Daddy

Kate's not always cuddly, but when she is, it's the best - here she is about to go to bed.

Daddy gets her to make funny faces in the mirror after her bath.

Mom takes Kate to the mall for easy window-shopping entertainment, and lots of space to walk around.

More artwork at school - I think this was a finger-painted turkey.

Content to be reading in the car

Just being cute!

Fun at the park

Kate loves blueberries...

...and so does William!

Merry early Christmas!

We've been busy - school has started, and Emily and Matt are both teaching and working hard.  Kate is doing great, enjoying activities such as playing with containers of dried beans, reading books like Find the Piglet, eating goldfish crackers, and of course, taking walks.  Happy September to all!

East Coast visit August 3-12

We took a trip to the East Coast, first to Framingham to visit Matt's parents and brother, and then we stayed with our friends Stephen, Deb, and William in Providence for a week.  We also saw our friends Danny, Ruth, and Audrey, who were visiting from California. Other than being restless on plane and car rides, it was a wonderful trip.  Here are some highlights! (In no particular order...)

Kate learns how to mow the lawn.  We've since gotten her a lawn mower of her own here!

She loved the beach (Newport, RI)
