We Were Tagged!

Hello from Kiki! We were tagged by the Bolton Girls to write seven things about one of us and tag seven people. Jayd wrote about the girls' mama and we also decided to write about our person, who we call Tía, which is Aunt in Spanish.

1. Tía is not African, but spent time living in a hut in Zimbabwe and learned the traditional music of the Shona people.

2. She has lots of different kinds of dolls from mini to child size.

3. Tía used to teach blind people how to ski as a volunteer and hopes to do that again.

4. She can hibernate for days in her sewing and craft room and never think about coming out until there is hardly any food in the house!

5. She plans to go to Ireland next fall.

6. Tía's favorite food is Mexican food and anything hot and spicy.

7. And finally, she loves animals and has had dogs, goats, rabbits, chickens, turtles, fish, parakeets and cockatiels, but now only has one dog. :)

We tag:

2. Jen
3. Shriara
4. Marlowe
5. Penny
6. Wendy
7. Anyone who wants to join in!

Spring Break

From Fina:

Happy Spring
This week was spring break in our town and it definitely looked like spring!

We didn't go anywhere, so I entertained myself at home as usual. I debated on becoming a blonde, but decided that was not the right color for me!

Tour of Celestial Seasonings
Actually, we did go one place - we went on a tour of the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory. It smelled so go in there, and there was lots of free tea to drink. Plenty of the teas don't have any caffeine, so kids can drink them, too.

Sleepytime Bear
I met the "real" Sleepytime Bear."

On another day at home I started coloring some pictures for Easter. Can you believe we found Hello Kitty Easter pictures! I love Hello Kitty. :D

Friday night there was a little neighborhood party and I helped make some horsdoeuvres.

That's about it! Hugs from Fina :))

Springtime Fun

Hi friends! Kiki here! I finally get a chance to write on my own blog. However, most of the photos are of little Fina as usual, haha.

Find Fina
We all got dressed in springy clothes and got a photo taken in our treehouse.

Fina posed with some daffodils a couple of days ago.

Old Typewriter
Our newest friend is Kit. She's really nice and has a lot of great stories to tell us. Today she was showing Fina how to type on an old fashioned typewriter. It's fun, but would not be good for blogging!

Hugs ~ Kiki

Spring is in the Air

Hello from Fina! I've been playing outside a lot because it's been so nice out. Here's what I've been up to lately:

Jumping rope with Juniper and Elizabeth.

Keeping an eye on a wildfire, but don't worry because they put it out and no damage was done.

Looking at a raindrop on a tree branch...

And finally, jumping on the trampoline last night!

Happy Mardi Gras from Fina and Elizabeth. (Sorry - we took the photo yesterday, but forgot to post it here. Too busy celebrating!)

Gardens and Gnomes

From Fina:

Yesterday Elizabeth and I decided to brighten up the garden and pretend we are flowers.

Flowers in the Distance
See how brown it is?

We danced and sang to help wake up the sleeping flowers.

Then a garden gnome came by and told us it was way too soon to wake up most of the flowers, but we could help clean up the garden.

Fina Gnome
So, today I dressed up like a gnome and went outside.

Fina Meets the Gnome
I found the gnome and asked how I could help.

Fina Meets the Gnome
He laughed and then just said, "Grab a shovel!" I guess gardening is hard work!

Belly Dancing

From Fina:

A couple of nights ago I went to a Moroccan restaurant and saw belly dancers perform. One of them let me have a photo with her. Then I decided I wanted to be a belly dancer, too! Partly, that's because of the cool costumes they get to wear. Anyway, they gave a lesson at the end and I learned how to belly dance.

This is my new costume!

Fina Belly Dancer 2
I gave a performance for my friends.

Fina Belly Dancer
You should join me! It's lots of fun!

This is the dancer that inspired me.
