Hanging Around

When Siosi was this age Eliana pushed her in a stroller like this too! Siosi thought this was the greatest thing!

Sister love!
Here is K-lo all ready to go.
Look alike?
Siosi loves to keep her coat on because she thinks she is going somewhere.
K-lo was playing so hard that she fell asleep. I was busy making dinner in the kitchen and sort of forgot about her because she had stopped making noise. When I went to check on her she was out! No greater joy!

I picked that thing up from Target for only 5 bucks!
It snowed this morning! Here is Joe going to work. He wasn't as pleased as I was.

Sick mom ramblings

I am one sick mamma! Ok, I'm not that sick yet but I feel it coming on. Don't all you moms out there just wish for a sick day like your husband gets to take from work when he is sick? I think I'll tell the boss I'm not coming in tomorrow. Joe and Siosi are sick too. So I put Siosi to bed at 6:45 and then Joe to bed at about 8pm. After that I began to feed Kalo when suddenly I had to put Siosi back to bed again. Then Kalo went to bed. Then I put Siosi back to bed again. Then Siosi back to bed again. Then Kalo a couple times more as well. So far I think Siosi is going to stay in bed this time. She has had a high fever today and yesterday. A mother's job is never over. The last time I put Siosi to bed I said to her, "Love you Osi." She answered back in her little Siosi voice, "Wuv woo Mom." That makes it all worth while. Uh oh! Kalo is up again!

Kalo's Blessing

Sunday Kalo was blessed by Joe. We are so lucky to have such a great husband and father who holds the priesthood and is worthy to give our children blessings such as this. After church we went to Mom and Dad's for a lovely dinner and some great conversation (Conversation is always great when you get a bunch of Strassers together!) Siosi was very excited to have our family pictures taken.

Dad and the girls!
Eliana wanted to be in the picture but someone told her she had to move so she was crying. It was pretty funny! She loves having her picture taken!
Here are Kalo's glamour shots! Isn't she gorgeous?
Close up of the dress Grandma made. This is the same one Siosi wore. We were surprised it fit!

Love this shot. "No more pictures please!" The princess has tired.
