Living reflection from a dream;
I was her love, she was my queen...
--Led Zepplin "Tangerine"

Meet Tangerine. She's the little white fluffy thing stuffed Paris Hylton-style inside a purse.

Surprised that she isn't orange? Me too. I'm not even sure where Kate heard the term "tangerine" but I can tell by the way she lets it roll off her tongue that she loves the sound of the word and has no clue of it's meaning.

Aunt Katie sent her $10 for her birthday and Kate informed me "I wanna get a little monkey with my birthday money". We took a trip to The Book Bin; one of our favorite spots on the Shore (the playhouse and toys for them, the coffee and book browsing for me). We walked in scouting for monkeys, but Kate saw tangerine from across the room, their eyes met and it was love at first sight.

She ran to Tangerine, snatched her off the hanging display, yelled "I want dis puppy!", ripped the price tag off and threw it to the floor. No one has ever accused Kate of not knowing what she wants. I picked it up and, as fate would have it, it was exactly $10. This photo is the Short People before their last day of preschool before Spring Break. They insisted on wearing bunny ears for their Easter party. Kate also wore them into the hospital one day when I had to get some blood drawn. She wanted me to wear India's but I demurred. We're off on Wednesday to SW Virginia for Easter, so I don't get another post in before then hope everyone's holiday is happy.

Cute Cute pics! Ms. Katherine looks a bit "diva" like in that 1st picture.

BWAH-HA-HA!!! "Paris Hilton-style" is exactly right. Does it frighten you that she looks just like a little starlet in "People" magazine (not that I would know what pictures in "People" look like...). Sweet pictures.

Happy Easter, Turmans!

If she starts saying "that's hot" I'm going to send her to a deprogramming camp. Or maybe this summer Joe and Gus will provide some much needed "dude" exposure!

Girls after my own heart. I too am wearing bunny ears for my egg hunt. Very cute the name Tangerine for no reason. Pretty cool kid to think of that.

Have a safe trip back and forth and enjoy the Easter break!
