Aw, what gorgeous girls you have!


Your girls are so beautiful!

Thanks for sharing - and thank you God for sisters/brothers...


I like Frankie following Anni's lead in chomping on her mitten ;) Thanks for sharing!


"I think it's a sign of my improving mental health and ability to prioritize my life that I didn't trash the whole thing and start over when I noticed the problem."...I hear you there! Who has time for obsessive compulsivities, anyway! (Spell check does not like my choice of "complusivities", but, following my sister's brave example, I am going to KEEP it here in this comment!

(Besides, if you hadn't mentioned it, I would have thought the nice soft-focus effect was intentional!)

It's always fun to see new pictures of my sweet nieces!


Hmmm...I'm so laid back that I won't even write a second comment to mention that I see I left out a closing parenthesis on the above comment...

oh...I guess writing a comment to you to tell you what I am not going to bother writing a comment to you about, sort of defeats the whole purpose, doesn't it?



In my experience, after-hospital brings out the emotional crises one hasn't had the energy for earlier on, plus worry of the nearer and farer future, plus letting off some the emotions by occasionally being just a TEENY bit irritable within the family. (NOT saying this is what YOU mean, just my own 2cents!)

Let's just say the simply amazing family unit we have when my dad is in hospital vanishes to make place for normality ;)

I'd still take it over hospital any day. And take uncertain futures... Anyone would. But it's not always all-glowing and living-to-the-full.

(Though I must say maybe I'm totally wrong posting this comment here as your girls certainly look as if they are celebrating life! Beautiful...)


Just beautiful. What a wonderful Christmas I'm sure you all will have this year.

Thanks so much for sharing - and letting the world be a part of - your trials and tribulations this year. All the best to you all.

i love how the girls are together. love seeing annika looking so happy. love it all!

what kind of tree are they under? it looks so much like there are cherries hanging beneath the snow, but that can't be right...


Very cute pictures!

Annika and her "basically adorable" little sister warm my heart every time I see pictures of their smiling faces. You can see their love for each in those pictures!


They look so, so happy and healthy. What an excellent display of that:)


Beautiful photos of beautiful girls!


Beautiful. We loved it. But it looks soooo coooold. Love, Bobby and Sharon


I thought I'd already left a comment here--But anyway, beautiful pictures, and I'm so glad your girls are together again, Moreena. :)


They are so beautiful!

Falling Down, November 2004

  • Balloon in hand, my 4-year-old
    twirled across the kitchen floor,
    singing nonsense words
    in her own key.
    "It's my gift!" she declared
    to the world at large, which
    was really only me,
    sitting at the table. Enough
    twirling, and she lost
    her balance, tumbling
    to the floor in a theatrical
    slapstick of elbows and knees.

    She lay on her back
    for a few seconds,
    at the textured ceiling
    with the mysterious
    spaghetti sauce stain.
    Suddenly she
    flapping her arms and legs
    there on the floor, as if to swish
    the imaginary snow
    into a snow angel.

    "Falling down is also a gift!" says she.
