Well, today I opened my kitchen cupboard and it seems Ella has made herself a secret home. Everything was just so. Kate has a cupboard right next to Ella's but they told me it isn't quite finished. Maybe they can help me decorate my house one of these days.

Sisters forever at king's beach.
Bike ride at Tahoe City. Lots of bluejays and squirrels.
Ella tasted tree sap for the first time. All in a day's work for a scientist.
The beach at sand harbor. Breathtaking.
“Thou hast had signs enough; will ye tempt your God? Will ye say, Show unto me a sign, when ye have the testimony of all these thy brethren, and also all the holy prophets? The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a supreme creator."
Anyway, that's what I've been thinking about. How everything around us is trying to send us a message if we would just tune in.
Beautiful places tell me that God loves us and will answer our prayers. I already believed that but was grateful for the reminder . . . .

All in one breath -- "Mom, I have an idea. We need to go to Target. We need to get a sleeping bag. We need to go to Tahoe." (Then Ella chimes in with, yeah, we can sleep in the van! Looks like the G's are going camping this weekend.)
Kate, I'm not giving you your treat until you say sorry. Are you sorry? "I'm sorry I'm not getting my treat . . . "
Kate, I'm going to the store. Do you want pullups or diapers (for night)? "PANTIES!"
"Are we going to race in the mountains today?" Not today. "Well, what day are we going to race?"
Kate, you need to stop screaming and use your words. "Some toddlers don't use their words." Well, obviously you can so do it.

I had the best support team in the world. What cuties. I love my kids.
Kate woke up on race day, put on her tennis shoes and ballet outfit and said, "Okay, mom, I'm ready for your race." She is an animal herself and I bet you've never seen a 3 year old run hills like katie kate.
Seriously, the views on this course were amazing.

We got this one for Katie-Kate. On her to-do list today she had me write "get kitten." This book was the best I could do and is soooooooooo cute.
Doesn't everyone love Fancy Nancy? My girls think she is divine. And for $3.99 I think she is pretty divine, too.
I love my little family. Today all the sweeping and laundry and everyday chores were definately worth it.
