Aunt Molly is visiting with us.  The kids love her, and have been enjoying her company.  I love that they love so quickly, Aubrey, Alyssa, and Hallie don’t remember ever meeting Molly, but from the moment she got in the car it was Aunt Molly this, Aunt Molly that…

Day 29–Snow Fun

30 January 2011

One of the benefits of having an acre for a back yard, more snow than we know what to do with.  Down side is mowing it this summer.  I’m hoping to get catch a picture of the deer that roam in our backyard this week.

Alyssa was more than ready to learn to write.  I probably put it off longer than I had to, but man when they are ready, it comes so easily.  We’ve been working for 3 weeks now and she has mastered her name.

Danny’s 37th birthday.  Danny loves Mexican food so I made him some Taquitos.  Emma asked me if she could make some homemade salsa for his birthday. I also made up some black beans in the crockpot.  Alyssa helped me make a carrot cake, and Aubrey the frosting.  Danny got a new cell phone and some shoes.  Most of all we just had a good time giggling and being together.

Oh and I missed day 24, looks like it’s a once a week thing, I’ll work on that.

Tanner is studying the immigration of the people from England to the American Colonies.  He was assigned to write a letter informing his family that he was immigrating to a colony of his choice.  Then he had to explain his reason for choosing that Colony and why he didn’t choose different colonies.  The trick is that it had to be on paper that looked old and written in an old style.  We did some research and had a lot of fun making the paper look old.  I had Tanner take the picture for today.

I found this you-tube video for curling hair using a sock.  It was easy peasy to do, but so didn’t work for my girls.  What a disappointment.  They just have TOO much hair.  I might try it again using two socks, but for now, I give it two thumbs down, it would probably work for thinner hair.

Day 21–No turning back

21 January 2011

You see your baby grow, she reaches milestones and it’s exciting.  But there is nothing to prepare you for when they lose that first top front tooth.  It is then that you realize that there is no going back, this is the point where they start to drastically change and grow up.  She is no longer my baby, and every time I look at my little Aubrey part of me is sad.  Eventually I’ll get used to it and get excited for her new upcoming mile stones, but even after 5 kiddos, this is the marker that is the hardest for me to accept.  A little glimpse into Aubrey’s personality.  This top tooth has been loose for a long time, but not overly loose.  She came in with a paper towel in her hand and declared that tooth was coming out today and not 30 minutes later she had pulled it out.

Not the best picture, she chose to pull it out right before bed.

My little girls know how to have fun on a snow day, Hallie has figured out how to play too.  We spent the entire day in leotards, dancing and eventually making some playdoh and watching the snow fall.
