July 17th, 2011

I have been helping my mom check her social networking profiles today. She showed me Beanie Mouse’s profile, Tat and Tat 2’s profile, and Miranda Ixie’s profile. I was wondering if you all thought that I should get a Facebook profile. I don’t really spend a lot of time online doing things for me—it’s usually watching Mom do her online thing! But I obviously would have plenty of friends to talk to—maybe I’d have more friends then Mom does! (That’s already happened on my twitter page!)

I couldn’t figure out a picture to put on here—so Mom and I decided that a bulldog picture is always apropos no matter what I write about!

One of Mom’s favorite things—besides reading, is fishing. She doesn’t get to go a lot. It’s possible to go fishing by yourself, but it’s not the same! So she has to wait till one of her friends have extra time before she can go. Caleb was in her backpack the entire time (he was the wallet protector), so even these photos have something to do with me and my friends! (Not that you guys seem to mind my Wisconsin related posts!)

We live near the Fox River. It was the dumping ground for papermaking plants a long time ago, so the fish aren’t safe to eat. It doesn’t bother Mom and her friends because they don’t want to kill the fish!

They mostly fish off parks and the like. This is Peabody Park. The white stuff on the ground is cottonwood seeds. Cottonwood trees are rather hardy and enjoy wet soil, so they like to live near rivers.

This was one of the larger fish Mom and her friend caught. It was a rock bass.

Mom’s favorite part by far was the mallard duck families! There were a couple of them. This mom duck had probably eight or nine babies!

This mom duck had fewer babies, but they were older. They also got a lot closer!

Until next time!

Another exciting thing that happened around here was that Mom finally got her Molly doll. She came to our house from ebay—in rather poor shape. Meet Molly—in a new outfit!

Her bangs are longer—and it turns out that so was her braids.

But now we have THREE American Girl dolls living with us! Mom assures me that there will probably never be as many teddies though!

This photo is from before Molly came—Caleb is still around! He still travels around with Mom in her purse!

Has anyone seen Cars 2 yet? Mom is waiting for someone to see it with, but I want to know now!

July 4th, 2011

Happy 4th of July everyone! For my American friends, it’s Happy Independence Day—and for everyone else—have a happy 4th anyways!

I thought I would share some of my mom’s pictures of the zoo animals that live down the road from us. My mom likes the farm animals best. Someday, I am going to be a little farming bear!

My mom loves chickens! This one has penciled feathers. It’s when the edges are a different color. A few different breeds of chicken can have these feathers, so Mom doesn’t know which kind of chicken she is.

tn_2011-06-25 Special Memories Zoo Walk Through (69) Tiger

This is the white Siberian tiger that lives there. There is also a orange one, and a lion and lioness. Sometimes, you can hear them roar for supper or lunch!tn_2011-06-25 Special Memories Zoo Walk Through (161)

This is a miniature Zebu cow. Mom overheard the lady who was watching the petting zoo call her Zara. She wanted to be Mom’s friend.

tn_2011-06-25 Special Memories Zoo Walk Through (176) Duck

This is a Khaki Campbell duck. It’s a girl duck because there isn’t any curly feathers at the end of her tail. Mom loves ducks the most. She would have liked to pet one of the ducks, but she knows that they don’t care for it. It was better to take pictures instead.

tn_2011-06-25 Special Memories Zoo Walk Through (231) Water Lilies

Another thing that Mom likes a lot is koi. They’re those fancy goldfish that can live outside. Unfortunately, it looked like the zoo got rid of their koi. They did still have the pond and the water lilies though. They were very pretty!

We could share hundreds of pictures, so I better end now!

July 2nd, 2011

So, first Mom and I want to apologize for not being online. It’s sort of a combination of cranky Mom, and stupid computer!

One of the things that happened when I was gone is that Mom finally brought home an American Girl doll. My mom grew up in the 1980s and 1990s, when they first came out. One of the first dolls, Samantha, had the same first name as her little sister. Being a kid, she thought that sooner or later they would come out with one with her name! That never happened, but she became attached to the Molly doll. Her parents never had the money to send for one, so now that she is an adult, she did!

The first girl that she saved from ebay turned out to be a little bit off from her memories of the AG dolls. But we kept her of course, but changed her name. This is Moira!

Some little girl cut her bangs. Mom calls it her appointment with a past hairstylist!

tn_2011-06-06 Moira and Adelaide (2)

Now Adelaide has a new friend! Mom did end up inviting another AG girl home, but we’ll talk about that next time.

tn_2011-06-06 Marlowe (2)

I’ve been very patient with Mom and her AG dolls! It’s important to be patient with Moms!

Talk to you later! We’re going to make a couple of posts and set them up to appear over the next few days!
