Bananagrams on a Snowy Day

Today we were over at Honey and Papa's house. It was snowing outside so we decided to play Bananagrams. It's a game where each player gets a certain number of letter tiles and they have to make words that are connected together kind of like scrabble. The first person to use all their tiles wins the game. After we played three games -- all of which I won -- Ling was a bit frustrated. So she had a great idea to see how many sentences we could make out of all the letters. The first picture is the sentence she made. The second picture shows the rest of the sentences we made. And the last one shows the 3 letters we had left that we couldn't do anything with! We had lots of laughs over this exercise. It was fun!

Renewed Effort and Minli-ism

Well I've decided to try my hand at blogging again. There have been several instances lately where I've said "wish I had a photo of that and need to write it down."

Tonight the girls were outside playing basketball. Ling has been getting alot of praise lately for her basketball prowess. Minli came in the house panting and said "Mom, I've gotten rid of my girlie girl. I'm becoming a tomboy!" We'll see how that goes.
