Photo-Free Wednesday

My computer is having some kind of weird issues. It's decided to act like we have dial up and take five million hours to download a picture, so, you just get to read my ramblings today! Sorry!

We have big news about the Halloween costume issue. Anastasia got her second leopard costume in the mail today (the first one was way to small). Guess what? Yep, this one was too big. I wanted to cry! Couldn't she just stuff it with some cotton and wear high heels? By the look on her face at my suggestion, apparently, not.
Then, Anastasia announced that she would like to be Wonder Woman with cool red boots. I no longer think Halloween is my favorite holiday! UGHHH!!!

Victoria did an amazing thing at the playground the other day. She went up the steps all by herself! No help at all! I couldn't believe it. She was holding onto the railing and pulling her whole body up with just one arm. Impressive! Then she said, "all done, get down".

Oh boy, I just realized that I do have a few pictures already downloaded. Anastasia got to volunteer to work at a vet's office on Monday. She even got to watch a surgery. The vet was concerned that Anastasia might get grossed out by blood and faint (they said other volunteers had!), but Anastasia told them, "Oh, don't worry, my sister had skull surgery!"

Just some random cuteness.

And in the words of the "Party Rock" song......"everyday I'm shuffling!"


  1. Awesome! Go, Victoria!

    Is that the Loving Hands clinic where Anastasia volunteered, by any chance? It looks like their waiting room. How cool that she got to do that! :)

    1. Yes, it is Loving Hands! They are a great vet! She had to write an essay for them to accept, really cook program.
