We were on TV!

Yesterday was super exciting. Tía took us to the brand new AG store down in Denver. It's a long drive, but worth it! So anyway, first, Tia was holding me and a news team from a local channel came up and interviewed her. Mia and Eva got to be on camera, too. We saw the video and laughed so hard when we saw ourselves. It's fun!

So anyway, here are some pics of us at the store:





And at a restaurant we went to for lunch:


And I'm sorry we haven't finished the story about Lalita staying over. we will get back to that soon! Promise!

I Have a Friend Visiting - Meet Lalita!

Yesterday afternoon the doorbell rang and it was my friend Lalita. She's on spring break and is going to stay at my house for a few days. Yippee!!!

Lalita's name is Hindu for "beautiful woman." Isn't that cool? She goes to The International School down in the big city and knows people from all over the world. I like her uniform, but Tía says I'd get tired of it if I had to wear it every day.

Oops! We got interrupted when someone furry came over to check out the open door.

Who me?

"Come on, Lalita! Take your coat off and I'll get your bags so we can go play!"

"OK, but don't look in this bag because there's a surprise inside."
"Really, Lalita? What is it?"

"Let's go to your room, Kiki, and you can find out!"

to be continued...

Tía Knit a Retro Cardigan

She isn't sure, but this sweater looks like something from the late 1950's to the early 1960's. Gwen got to wear it and the skirt Tía made to go with it because she loves music from the early days of The Beatles.

The pattern came from Sockpixie, a blogger here on blogspot. The skirt pattern is from a book by Joan Hinds.

New Title for our Blog!

I guess you noticed we changed the title of our blog. That's because we (Mia and Eva) are really busy trying to get ahead of our school work so we can have a longer spring break. Kiki seems to have more time and energy to blog, so we decided to let her take over for awhile. We thought it would be fun to surprise her with the new title, too! But, don't worry we will still be around and post when we can.

Have fun!
Mia and Eva

Kiki Looks for Spring

Hi guys! It's Kiki! And that is just plain "Kiki", not "Kooky Kiki" like Mia calls me sometimes. I don't mind cause I know she loves my kooky sense of humor. But anyway... I went on a hike to look for signs of spring. I followed a long, winding trail into the dark forest...

OK, we don't have much of a forest around here, but there is a bubbling creek that is known to be haunted by a weeping woman...

OK, maybe it's not haunted, but I did see a pair of mallard ducks. In fact all the ducks were in pairs and I bet they have a nest nearby and will have ducklings soon!

Underneath the old fall leaves are shoots of green grass coming up. Yay!

And then look what I found!

Forget about spring. I KNOW there is something very interesting and mysterious living inside that hollow log. It is huge and very dark inside. Maybe I can come back with Mia and Eva and a flashlight to explore it's secret depths. I think I need backup to go into a deep log in a dark forest next to a haunted creek! ;)

Laters Gators! Kiki

Kiki's Turn!

Remember when we said we would have to share this blog with some of our sisters? Well, we have a really cool sis named Kiki. You may have seen her in some other photos. She's lived here a long time and is one of our favorite sisters because she is so creative. She's always making up fun stories and singing silly songs to herself. She loves to tease us with silly rhymes she makes up. So watch for some blogs from Kiki!
