Austin New Year


We had an early night at A.N.Y. with a Biscuit Brother's concert. Elizabeth went back and forth from our blanket to the stage to dance.

Zoo





Elizabeth's favorite part was "sheep eat." She was not bothered by the lip-smacking way the lions looked at her, but I was, as was Caroline who refused to get in a picture with them.

and then time with family





When these girls are together, dress-up is involved as are lots of performances. We can get them to sit (for a bit) with a movie.

enjoying (if you asked her what her favorite gift was, she'd say "Candy Cane" -- which is what she calls all candy. That's Reese's Cup from her stocking in her hand and mouth.)


the play!

Elizabeth got a digital camera to share with her sister, along with Duplo blocks, an ice cream cone stacking set, a scooter, a doll cradle, and a rocking horse.

The letter E

I had hoped to capture this on camera, but Elizabeth is reluctant to perform on demand. :-(

My daughter knows her alphabet! Or at least the one letter that matters to her -- E!

Every letter is E. She even says the ABC song in rhythm -- E E EE, E E E, E E E E EEEEE. . .
