Snow Day 2014

...only there really wasn't any snow to speak of. We went to sleep the night before hopeful, but not confident. Even so, you can bet there were tears in the early morning {especially Mallory} when the girls woke up and there was no snow. I think they probably dreamed all night about pretending to be Anna and Elsa!

Not knowing if it would be another three~or~four years before they see snow again, we had to bundle up {for a very little while and wearing as many polka~dotted~patterned garments we could find} and play in the "snow."

Happy Snow Day! {back to reality in the morning!}

Throwback Thursday ~ Summer 2010

I thought I'd bring a little "Throwback Thursday" over to the blog today. I found these two short video clips of Anna Claire and Mallory buried deep on my laptop tonight as I was trying to download a clip from YouTube for a workshop I am presenting to teachers Monday. I have no idea where else they may be saved or if I ever shared them here, so here they are...a little throwback to summer 2010...

How cute were they??!!

The Tooth Fairy Has Paid Us a Visit

Anna Claire lost her very first tooth Saturday night!

We were in the car riding home from dinner at Carrabbas {yummy!} and she "wiggled it out" as she likes to tell everyone. She was SO excited, particularly because it didn't hurt or bleed. Her tooth had been loose for about two weeks and was ready to fall out to the point that we were being very careful anytime she was eating. We didn't want her to swallow it!

I did my best to capture some video with my phone, but it was dark in the car, so you pretty much just have to listen...

The Tooth Fairy left her $5, all in ones, in her new Tooth Fairy pillow that I whipped up just in time. She has decided to save her money until her next tooth falls out because she wants to have enough to buy a Kristoff doll to go with the Anna and Elsa dolls Santa brought, and she shared $1 with Mallory who wants so badly to have a loose tooth that she ate apples all weekend. I guess I need to hurry up and get Mallory's Tooth Fairy pillow made...and buy more apples!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We had a great Christmas and we hope you did, too! 

I took tons of pics, but I'm only sharing the one above from Christmas Eve just before the girls headed off to bed. They were so excited and full of talk about sneaking out super early to see what Santa left them (didn't happen ~ the sneaking out part; Santa left them plenty). 

Mallory did wake up first around 6:20, and we were forced to wake up Anna Claire at 6:45 because Mallory just couldn't wait any longer. 

Here's a little video not long after we all got out of bed of the girls trying to take it all in ~ so funny!! {sorry the video is fuzzy; I still don't know how to use the video mode on my camera}. 

Happy New Year!!
