Name That Toe

I'm breaking radio silence to inform you all that Lavender has named her toes. From biggest to smallest, there are:

Pumpkin Pie
Violet Pie
Pumpkin Pastie
Rosette, and
Cherry Tree.

That's it. Carry on.

Here's a look at the first of what 2015 has had in store for us!*

Lavender celebrating New Year's Day with some time outside in the sun with Goya.

Here Lavender has opened up a coffee stand in her playhouse. She serves the most delicious invisible cocoa in town!

Geneva Lynn decided to teach the family about water pollution. She created a paper "spokesmermaid" and set up a booth where she and her mermaid could educate us about the importance of clean water. Ari mostly wanted to dump the water out and Geneva was remarkably patient with him.

Lavender and Ari, spending a quiet afternoon painting together.

Captain Lali, aboard the boat where we were hosted by our friends Linda and Conrad and joined by Nana. Geneva spent her day at the Seattle Aquarium with the Graffs.

Ari called all boats "butts." We saw some pretty big butts.

Upstairs in the... cockpit? I don't speak boat :(

Downstairs in the warm indoorsy part.

It was chilly and peaceful and lovely.

High five!

*Not pictured: the two weeks where I was really sick, and the concurrent week where the kids were also sick. I didn't photograph that. No way.
