The Buddy System
Mollie is getting old enough to be my buddy. I put on lipstick, she wants lipstick. I talk on the phone, she wants to talk on the phone. I sweep the floor, she sweeps the floor. I do yoga, she does yoga (the other day she saw someone at the store raise their hands above their head and she said, "Wook Mommy! That wady is doing yoga wike us!") Since Cory has been busy with school, we really get a chance to pal around together. I absolutely love it. There is a part of my heart that goes all marshmellowy when I think about Mollie. She is my lover!
Here are some pics of the last few weeks:
Mollie and I completed the "Itty Bitty Salt Lake City" contest. This is us in front of our VERY last find! If you want details on the contest, check it out on Deseret News.com. We spent about 15 hours downtown looking for clues together. What a great partner!
Mollie helped me make dinner rolls on conference Sunday.
And she helped Dad make gingersnap cookies, too.
We got two HUGE pumpkins in our backyard pumpkin patch this year and Mollie loved watching them grow up!
Mollie hiking to the "H" with Dad. Her backpack, by the way, is FILLED with rocks she carefully picked out and brought home.
Dad and Mollie built a castle/fort where she spent the better part of Sunday morning. She moved right in, bringing most of her toys, her blanket and some story books with her. She stayed there a LONG time, which prompted both Cory and I to say, "Why didn't we think of this SOONER?"
This face! Checking out the scenery as we rode the tram at Snowbird last weekend.
