2020 As Seen By My Camera Roll

2020 was a year to be remembered! I selected the main photos from my camera roll to describe this year!

Day in the park

She’s not afraid, but I am for her!
In the first days of 2020 someone broke into our house. I must’ve guessed it will be a rough year!
Apparently Halloween costumes can be worn all year long, with style!
Decided to go out, without me!
Day out at Ponderosa Zoo
Arianna took this picture and posted it to my Facebook story. At that time I didn’t know how to do a story
At the beginning of the pandemic, in nursing homes we were provided with paper masks to protect us from the virus. These masks were so terrible, they got wet only by breathing in them!
For her second birthday, Arianna had no party, but enjoyed the cake and was so fascinated by the candles and the “Happy Birthday Song”
A Lockdown Birthday
That day Ari met for the first time a mouse. What a scare for me! She was excited and found it very cute, but Lucy was chasing it, and Ari was chasing the mouse while I was freaking out and didn’t know how to take Arianna from the whole situation and lock the door behind me… Arianna was very excited and told all relatives about her new “cute little friend that played with her cat”
showing mummy how gorgeous these Easter eggs made by Ari turned up to be!
Eggs hunt for Easter. What a thrill there was!!
Telling bedtime stories to her best friend.
Arianna chased Lucy all year long and stood by her side whenever possible. She also was obsessed with her baby that she carried with her everywhere.
Potty training was the one big step we made into becoming a big kid. See here to see if your child is ready to be potty trained.
Full PPE was introduced in nursing home and proper training about donning and doffing!
Besides 3 layered surgical masks we were given goggles or visors, aprons and gloves.
Summer time, grazed knees time
Making sure daddy is alright
Apparently even when you are a doll you have to go to school and learn
Wearing mummy’s heels!
Wearing a tiara while polishing the car with daddy… because, why not?
Girly activities are a joy for Arianna. She insisted in doing my pedicure, and she didn’t do a bad job.

Family walk. Arianna loved it at grandma’s house. She even took the key to grandma’s house with her when we left
