Yes, I am still here

Once again, I have failed to post anything in the last few months. I am still here and I have all sorts of things that I want to share with you all, but I am just not getting it done.
I was hoping to do a year-in-review post for 2011, and I may still, but not right now.
In the meantime, I will share a few quotes and quips from the girls that I have written down in the past few weeks/months.

One day, while at my mom's, Meskerem came upstairs with two dolls in her arms and said, "Whew, it is hard work with two babies when they are both crying." My mom and I both lost it. We both said, "We understand completely." Once we could stop laughing long enough to talk.

We have started reading "chapter books" together in the evening. The first one was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis. After the first night, Kidist said, "I can't wait to read the next chapter." I love seeing my kids get excited about books.

Speaking of excited about books. Here is one of my proudest moments as a mom. Meskerem read the story at story-hour at the library a few weeks ago. Luckily the librarian had a camera and shared the photo with me.

Now, we are going to go start reading Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfield. They want to watch the movie, so we have to read the book first.
Go read a book with your kids. Never know what you will learn.
