Hazel hanging out with Virginia

October 3rd, 2009

Here’s a short interaction between the girls. Enjoy!

Hazel and Virginia – 10/3/09 from wendy morissette on Vimeo.

This was shortly after Hazel’s soccer game, which is why she’s wearing her jersey and her hair’s a mess.. it was dripping rain on and off during the game so she wore a hat. Zel’s season is going well, they have won every game, beating teams that crushed them last fall. The big change this season is having 7 players per side and moving to a larger field. The girls’ skills are all improving dramatically and we (all the parents) have a great time at the games.

Happy 9th Birthday Hazel!

Does it get any better than this?

It’s the fourth day in a row of snow, snow, snow, and the neighborhood kids have been sledding at the church across the street. Lots of kids, not quite enough sleds, lots of cooperation! It’s been fun to watch.
Here’s zel on a snowboard for the first time! Apparently, bindings really aren’t needed.

I sure am glad we didn’t have snow like this on her day of birth… the drive to seattle would have been horrible.

The old Tractor

November 24th, 2008

I remember this tractor well from childhood. Dad mad this for Wayne and I, not sure what year that was. Looks like Hazel is *almost* too big for it:

For Halloween this year, Hazel dressed as Hermione Granger. And here she is with her pumpkin, which she cleaned out and carved herself.

Hazel’s early birthday present

September 7th, 2008

Hazel’s a third grader now and walking or riding her bike to and from school each day. For a couple of years now, she’s been getting around on her trusty Dazzle Jazz with its 18″ tires.

Hazel grew an inch between the end of 2nd grade and the start of 3rd. It was time to step up to a sporty new Trek, with its 20″ rims.

After a few adjustments and a safety checkout at the bike store, Hazel’s ready to roll. This bike rates two thumbs up from Hazel, mostly because she finally has a kick-stand.
