Marion Enjoys the Dinosaurs

Marion and Henry are both big fans of the crazy game I bought at a thrift store today, "Lost World, Jurassic Park Game".

She also does a great impression of a meat-eater with her arms all tucked up like a tiny Tyrannosaurus.

Happy Third Birthday, Marion

Wow, the little crouching smiler is three years old today. Is this even possible?

Here's a link to last year's birthday post (when I had more time to do this kind of thing). It has her birthday pictures all together.

Outdoor Adventures

Henry and Marion (and parents) went on a canoe trip. We had a great time, and nobody went in the water. We took some pictures with my camera phone, we got Henry, but not Marion:

Then we went on a walk in the woods, and experienced all sorts of fun new things.

Who doesn't want to climb trees?

Henry leads us off the trail!

Looking Forward to . . .

This is what I have to look forward to, with the spring coming, with Marion and Henry becoming even closer friends, and with the world opening up to them. These are the days I'll remember, the days that make me cry from their beauty, their fond memory. This is life.

Marion Has A Goat

Who knew it was possible for a less-than three year old to own a goat? Well, as it turns out, Marion is the proud owner of a goat, who will be raised at Grandma Chicken's (my mom) farm. If I remember correctly, the proceeds from the sale of this goat when it's older will be put aside for Marion (college, car, trip to goat-city? I forget which).

Not many girls around here can say they have a goat of their own. Quite a lucky girl. The first question she asked when she saw the picture was, "Where's Henry's goat?" There's a goat on the way for Henry, it just has to be born.

Marion chose to name it Amalthea, which is the name of the unicorn in The Last Unicorn, when she's turned into a woman. She also said, "Now I sing a goat song; This goat is for me and Henry, the doggies have two feet, and the kitties have two feet, but not this year, cus I have two socks."

Aren't our hood-things super cute? They look like super-hero outfits too.

Last (Unicorn) Pancake

Marion is really into the movie The Last Unicorn. It could be because it's a great story, or it could be because it's the first and only movie she's watched.

This is our breakfast:

Marion Goes to Work

Marion sat down at the computer this morning and told me:
"Daddy, I think I want to work on eBay."

Mr. Mustache

Marion: "I don't want kisses though."
Daddy: "Is it because my mustache is pokey?"
Marion: "Uh huh."
Daddy: "If I didn't have a mustache, would you want kisses?"
Marion: "Uh huh."
Daddy: "We'll have to think about that."
Daddy moves off to start cooking, a few moments pass.
Marion: "Time to shave your mustache, Daddy."

Yikes. Seriously. My mustache? The thing that makes me a man, a real hairy man. Can I, should I? Yikes. Earl Hickey (from My Name is Earl) knows the importance of looking like Magnum P.I., and so do I. But kisses from your daughter, that's a pretty big incentive.
