A Long Overdue Update

This was Gwen "singing" during the Primary program a few weeks ago.  She loves to sing this song, but was a little distracted when it was time to perform. . . . .

These next ones were taken at the park today.  This girl hates to wear clothes and fights getting dressed, but today she asked me to get her dressed to go to the park, so that's exactly what we did.  She was so happy -- the sheer delight in her face as she was running around at times..... moments like those are what life's all about.

Pics and videos

We took Gwen to the zoo last week and she wouldn't stay still long enough to get many pictures, but here are the few I managed to get:

Gwen on a bench that could be anywhere --

Gwen in front of a some cavy --

Teri and Gwen with the gorilla statue. There was a gorilla right by the window of its pen, but Gwen wouldn't turn away from it to look at the camera, so I didn't get a picture of her with the actual animal.

This week we took her to the North American Museum of Ancient Life (colloquially known as The Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point). She only held still when she found a computer to sit in front of and pretend she was playing on it, so here are those 2 pics:

Since she wouldn't stop moving, I took some videos of her instead. The longer ones at the sand/water table might be a little boring, so I'm not offended if you don't watch them all the way through.... or if you don't watch any of these at all, really. Sorry for the low resolution. I forgot to bring our actual camera, so this was my cellphone subbing in.

A small picture post

I'm told I don't post often enough and that I don't have enough pictures of Gwen up here either, so... here are some for your viewing pleasure.

The 1st one was taken back in April, the next shows the aftermath of her working on a giant jawbreaker, the 3rd is her taking a nap last week using her stuffed animal puppy as a pillow while snuggling with her "pen-gwen" toy.

And the final one is her sitting with her Grandpa Camp while he was here over the Memorial Day weekend.

Phish phish phish!

I saw the "from address" as "Amazon Corporate Ofice" and already knew it was bogus. The "Reply Back Immediately" that the real Amazon NEVER would use only confirmed it, but thought I'd check to see how bad it was. Judge for yourself:

Bad spelling, incredibly wrong punctuation, stilted language . . . . it obviously came through an online translator rather than from another English-speaking nation, and well. . . the email address was Albanian. So easy to spot . . . . and yet people still fall for these. Sad, really.

Gwen after 2.5 weeks

She's been so active that we had to wait for her to be sleeping to get a good picture since we've only got cellphone cameras with slow shutter speeds. Kinda blurry, but such is life. As you can see, there's still a little red mark, but if you don't know it's there it's not really that obvious anymore.

Pics of Gwen's healing process.

Days 3, 4, and 5. 3 at the bottom and 5 at the top. She's doing a ton better in a very short time. Well.. she was doing great the very next day as far as her energy and bright spirit go, I'm talking about the injury itself her. . . .
