Ears on the Rabbit

Over Christmas, Ellie discovered Aunt Dana's alphabet refrigerator magnets. She quickly learned M is for Mummy, D is for Daddy, E is for Ellie, and G is for Grandma and Grandpa. So Crystal bought her some letters of her own for our Durham fridge.

Here's what we've got so far:
A is for baby Avi (Ellie's best friend)
B is for Butter (preferably eaten by the handful)
C is for Cat (drawn by the dozens)
D is for Daddy
E is for Ellie
F is for Fish
G is for Grandma and Grandpa
H is for Hello
I is for Ice
J is for Jump
K is for Key
L is for Llama (she has one with her toy farm)
M is for Mummy
N is for Nice
O is for Orange (favorite color)
P is for Pizza
Q is for ???
R is for Rabbit
S is for Snake
T is for Tea
U is for Umbrella
V is for ???
W is for Water
X is for ???
Y is for Yes
Z is for Zebra (thanks, Aunt Kat!)

Since the fridge doesn't provide orientation — the letters rotate all which way, making M and W, Z and N a bit confusing — I wrote out the letters for her the other morning.



When she was bored with that, she took her marker and drew a circle, which I thought would turn into another cat. When I asked her what it was, I thought she said, "Rabbit" (figuring out her words can be a bit tricky...). So I handed her an orange marker and said, "Why don't you draw some ears on the rabbit?" She paused, "Ummmm....," looked around, and then added some decorations to the appropriate letter.

Priceless.

Q is for QUEEN, of course. Come on, people, get with the program!

So glad there's more blogging going on :)

And knitting, too.

The day is delightful and moving. Unordinary to see the sky so blue and feel the climate so warm where the surf meets the sand. The highlight of the day will be lunch time when I plan to commend a home vitality triumph with a genuine, honor winning dish of mollusk chowder and some crisp buttered garlic bread. It will be justified regardless of the hold up. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/06/outdoor-sound-blasters-briefly.html
