Alexandra has discovered that she can send emails to Donald while he is at work. Here is one that he forwarded back to me so that I could read it:

hi daddy. i. miss. you. gese. wat. i. em. on the. 104th. page. of. ramona the brave. give. me. a call. lats. of. love. Alexandra. good. by. daddy 1ts. a. gene. call. me. gust. too. let. you. no. call. 7831324. Love. Alexandra good. by


Hi Daddy! I miss you. Guess what? I am on the 104th page of Ramona the Brave. Give me a call. Lots of love, Alexandra. Goodbye Daddy. Once again, call me. Just to let you know, call 783-1324.




I couldn't help but notice that on Alexandra's homework she has started writing a 'J' in place of the 'X' in her name. I guess she is taking this Spanish thing very seriously :)

Great-Grandma....the puppet???

"Is she a puppet?" the girls asked me as they flipped through an old family photo album. The picture they were referring to is of my very short grandmother standing next to my very tall brother. I quickly told them that it was in fact their great-grandmother (who passed away 4 1/2 years ago) and that she was completely real.
