Our Princess

Michael and Emily went to the Daddy Daughter Valentine's Dance at the YMCA a couple of weeks ago. She was so excited. Michael later told me that, in the car on the way there, Emily said, "Daddy, I've been looking forward to this for a year!" She will be 7 years old this Saturday. I can't believe it!

I bought this dress for her at a consignment sale months ago, knowing that it would be perfect for this dance. She loved it, and I was so glad.

Snow Day

We had a fun day at home today. What was supposed to be a three day weekend turned into a four day weekend, and the kids were so excited. The two older kids spent a lot of time outside, and Nathaniel even built a snowman. The little guys were outside, too, just not as long. I took my husband's advice and tried to have some fun instead of trying to get things done. He was right. I had a wonderful time sitting on the floor with Andrew and Daniel, building tracks and watching them use their imaginations on the "Island of Sodor" (where Thomas lives). :-)

Can you tell that Nathaniel was ready to get out into the snow? They were ready to get out there at 6:30am.

Mission Accomplished

Yesterday, my goal was to clean and organize Andrew and Daniel's room, and I am glad to say I got it done. They were good helpers. It's a pretty simple system--small toys go in the drawers and big toys go in the toy box. Andrew especially liked helping me vacuum when we were all done. I think it was the highlight of the week for him. :-)
