Hazel hanging out with Virginia

Saturday, 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.

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.

Hazel and Mommy Day

Saturday, November 19th, 2005

Not long ago, Hazel and her Mommy spent the day together. They had a leisurely morning and then headed out on the highway for Tacoma. They parked at the Tacoma Dome transit center and rode the Link to where Mommy works. Now Hazel knows what Mommy does every morning. Oh, and before they got on the Link, they went to a coffee shop to get coffee for Mommy and hot chocolate with whipped cream for Hazel.
They hung out at work for a while and Hazel played some games on Mommy’s laptop. They were going to meet a friend for lunch, but the friend couldn’t get away from work. Poor friend, she missed out. Hazel and Mommy left the office and got back on the Link, riding it to another stop where they got out to have lunch. Lunch was very yummy and there was an activity sheet and crayons for Hazel. They had a long leisurely lunch before hopping on the Link to ride back to the parking garage.
They arrived home soon after and had a nice leisurely nap (are you sensing a theme?) to rest up for the next activity: going up a climbing wall. It was the first time for both of them. The climbing helper at the YMCA was very nice and patient and explained the gear for both of them. Hazel was a bit nervous after watching some big kids climb all the way to the top. Mommy told her that she didn’t need to climb that far, and she calmed down after that. Hazel made two climbs of about 7-8 feet each and Mommy climbed to the top.
All in all it was a wonderful and leisurely day.

The Swirling Star of Healing

My beautiful and creative daughter revealed a new talent last night, a skill within the healing arts. She told me this was the Swirling Star of Healing and that if I looked at it every day, it would help to heal my owies (I had surgery, see bugsplat for the story). She said it would be especially effective on the really ugly one near my belly button. She assured me that it would work in the sun and if it rained.
Today when she came home, she asked to see my tummy. I lifted my shirt and told her that everything looked about the same as it had this morning. She was disappointed, “I thought the Healing Star would work on that owie.”
I told her it had worked, that I’d had a great day and that owies took time to heal, but it would take less time now that I had a Healing Star.
