Iced in....

Well we got two snow days in San Antonio (even though it was just really ice)! Adding them on to Martin Luther's birthday made for a nice long vacation! I think we stayed in our pajamas for three whole days. It was sooooooo nice! We kept the fire going, played lots of games, stayed up late, slept in, and had hot chocolate. The girls did venture outside to get some icicles and eat them. Alyssa of course insisted on wearing her flip flops. Now we are back to the routine....Leanna had not napped in about two weeks. However, today I found her fast asleep watching Dora at 11:30 and she didn't wake up untill 4:00! I guess she had some napping to catch up on! Oh here is a picture of Alyssa hiding under the blanket because her hair wasn't "done" for a picture!

more projects...

Having a house sure does keep you busy! We worked on painting the living room (formally known as the dining room). We took down the dining light fixture and got a new one. Then we worked on painting an accent wall in the family room as you can see. It doesn't look so bright in person as it does in the picture. Here is Emily's new haircut and you can see the new light fixtures we put up in the kitchen. In other news, I have had a little work at the school districts lately which throws me off a little. Alyssa got another great report card with all A's. Emily also got a good report card and is well on her way with reading. And Leanna is doing quite well with the potty. We went to the dentist the other day. No cavaties. However, Alyssa is "dentally delayed," which means she still has about 6 baby teeth to lose. I guess if your going to be delayed in any area that would be a good area. Looks like she won't need any braces - yeah! Emily must be growing up because she has a LOOSE TOOTH!!! I can hardly believe it. Leanna was examined too and the dentist had to agree she is quite fiesty! I'm surprised he still has any fingers. That's all for now!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! The kids are back to school :( but it is kinda nice to back to a routine. Even Leanna went to preschool yesterday. I thought she might cry because we had such a long break but she didn't! I suppose crying for the first two and a half months got it all out of her system. In fact when I asked her how her morning was she said "I don't cry at school, I am happy at school!" Yeah finally! She actually has been quite fiesty at home lately. Very full of herself and acting independant. She even wants to walk herself up and climb into her crib by herself at nap time. The other morning, I woke up to her eating cold pancakes from the fridge in the living room. Her and Emily just laugh around the house all the time making poop jokes. It is kinda cute. O.k. I added some old pics this time. Emily and Leanna got haircuts. You can see Leanna's but I still need to capture Emily.
Happy Birthday Damien! More pics to follow since we didn't get to have the cake yet. Unfortunately, he ended up working really late. Thank You Ales for keeping the girls!
