Rock Collection

Allie's rock collection.
In my house, you'll find a few different collections.  Quarry Critters (my personal favorite), Johnny Depp movies, 1/24 scale NASCAR models (mostly all packed away now), and some pieces to the Department 56 Dicken's Village.  Not much...but enough that they can be categorized as being "collections".

Slowly over the last few days, a new collection has sprung up.  On my window sill over my kitchen sink, of all places.  It's a rock collection which Allie started.  She has a habit of walking up our stone walk way to our front door and selecting one or two little rocks to "smuggle" into the house.  It all started innocently enough...she snuck one in, her father found it, and we put it on the sill.  Then it happened again the next day.  And the next.  And now it's reached the point where she purposely picks one up and brings it to me and points to the window sill.  Last night, with a boost from her dad, she added to the collection herself.

I know that at some point, it's going to become more of a rock "train" than a "collection"...but until then, I'm content to let her bring in her little souvenirs from outside.  :)

From today on

If I tried to blog about the last 20 months of my daughter's life, it would take me the next 20 months to do it.  So I've decided that I'll begin by blogging from this day forward.  I'm sure that whatever cute stories you missed will be topped by whatever cute stories will be forth coming.  :)


Welcome to my blog!!  I've been toying with the idea of claiming a little piece of cyber space for myself for quite some time now! I love writing and I love my daughter...so I thought maybe I'd combine those two and make a little blog about my day to day life!  I hope you enjoy!!  Stay tuned for lots of pictures and stories!
