Double the daughters

Quadruple the fun!!! It's been a while since we've made any updates and following this one will be there or four more posts that include our 10th Anniversary, Grandma Chinn visiting, Rose meeting Great Granny Rose, the BBQ Contest, Daisy opening some birthday presents and of course some pictures of Rose and Daisy and more. Enjoy!

PS Wendy has more pictures to add and I would, too, but the last month or two, or maybe even three, who can keep time anymore? Daisy has asked for my or Wendy's iPhone's by saying, 'Pictures of Daisy', which means she wants to scroll through the pictures on our phones. She knows how to turn on the iphone, slide to unlock it, and knows which ap to press to get to the picture as well as some of the other aps that are 'for her' (ie Animal noises, etc. that she enjoys). I did catch her about a month ago making a phone call to a civil engineering company here in town... for two minutes. Luckily it was a weekend and went to their voicemail system. I bet they liked that message. I hope they don't have caller ID! The other thing I think she has done inadvertantly is deleted some pictures since its so easy to do with a click of a button... here goes!

Daisy loves to play with these bowls and tupperware. She loves to take them out, spread them out, and stack them up. She's actually generally pretty good about putting them away, too. She is really enjoying taking lids off and putting lids back on and stacking cups and bowls. Playing in this kitchen is one of her favorite past times.

I honestly can't remember why/when I took this picture, apparently at night, but its Daisy, and she's beautiful.

Here is a good shot of Grandma Chinn and Daisy reading. Daisy is in her jammies (or pajama jamas as I call them). Daisy doesn't get to see Grandma Chinn as often as she likes, but she points her out in photos and says, 'Grandma Chinn'. (Last night (sept 28) after, Daisy pointed a picture of Wendy and I at graduation with our parents. Daisy proudly points at the people and says, Grandma Chinn, Daddy, Mommy, Grammy, and I don't knowhim...when pointing at Grandpa Rose...for some reason. She clearly knows who he is. Unfortunately she pointed at my dad and said, 'who dis',...too. I miss him, and he would have loved Daisy and her love of running around the house saying, 'Go white sox!' throughout the day.

Daisy out tailgating...for the second season! Grandma Chinn joined us, as did Rose, for her first tailgating experience, although she slept for most of it... and the Hokies won!

Just like when Daisy was born, we went with Grandma Chinn to the Palisades for dinner. It's become a tradition, have a baby girl, go with Grandma to the Palisades! Who knows, maybe this was the last trip for this tradition?!?!? Anyway, Grandma showing off a maple and walnut desert I think.

Wendy showing off some homemade ice cream... I can't remember what was in it.

and I had some kind of homemade cheesecake.... The whole evening was a lot of fun. The weather outside was blustery, which was odd for an early September, but it just made the setting perfect on the beautiful drive out there. Daisy's godmother Jeanette joined us, as did Betty and Carl, which was a treat. Grandma Chinn, Carl and Betty, and Jeanette are always helping us out and giving us stuff for the girls. A further treat was Grandma Chinn picking up the tab. We also had very good dinners.... though I failed to get a picture of them. Daisy did well, she colored and played some in the corner and we went outside for a short walk, too.... and as our tradition, I placed Rose on the bookshelf in the restaurant and Wendy took a picture. Hopefully she can post that soon. I did the same with Daisy before.

Finally, here is a picture of Daisy riding her elephant with a gift from my Aunt Elaine in Colorado. Daisy got a couple tu-tus from her when we were visiting last fall and this year sent her a long flowy headband that Daisy loves. Daisy loves her girly clothes, and has started dressing herself, usually in multiple skirts!
