Oh my, how I have been waiting for Spring.  And it's finally here!!  I swear it seemed like the longest Winter we've had in years.  We usually have a lot of temperature fluctuations to break up the monotony but this year it just got cold...and stayed cold.  And we got more snow than normal, too, which means lots of snow days (an unprecedented amount in our state) to make up for my girls first year in school.  The good news is our state legislature passed a "snow days bill" that allowed for a few days to be shaved off. 

But now the birds are back in droves,  and the trees are budding and the daffodils are blooming so I am happy, happy, happy.

And so is this girl.  Doesn't it show?! 

She still loves her penguin, and that makes me pretty happy too.  What can I say, I'm in no big rush for her to grow up any faster than it already seems she is.

Happy Spring!

She's Six!!

My sweet girl is six....SIX!!  I'm still trying to wrap my head around that.  Sometimes I wish I could slow time down just a little bit. 

I might not have been ready but she, on the other hand, was all excited about having another birthday.  Her actual Birthday was on Friday and the weather was kind of nice..... and since the there was some nasty weather forecasted for Sunday (party day) we go let her have her big gift from us so she could enjoy it before Old Man Winter hit us with one last blast.  She LOVES her scooter.  She had outgrown her old helmet, too,  so she got a new one.  She is all into unicorns now so she is tickled pink with her new helmet. 

Sunday afternoon was party day.  We just had a super small get together with family and a couple of friends and she was perfectly happy with it. 

She chose My Little Pony for the theme this year.

Kerry and Carmen were watching clips of the songs from "Frozen" and singing along.

Fuzzy shot,  but sweet =)

 Happy Birthday to my sweet, brilliant, amazing 6 year =)

Things she's said lately =)

This girl of mine talks...a lot.  Before I forget, I have to write down a few of the things she's said recently.
"Mommy, I don't ever want to die, I'll miss the IPad.  Are there IPads in Heaven?" 
" I'm serious-ing you!"  (when she really, really means what she's saying, ha!)
"I'm going to marry Nathaniel...but not until I congraduate and get a good job."
Kerry:  "Guess what my boyfriend's favorite color is"
Me:  "Umm, what?!  What boyfriend?"
Kerry:  "Alexander!"
Me:  "Ummm, and what makes you think he's your boyfriend?"
Kerry:  "Because he said he was."
"I know I'm only in Kindergarten but it seems like I'm, like....a 4th grader!"

"My leg hurts.  I think I'm having growing pains.  That makes sense, because my birthday is coming soon."

We have been having the coldest, snowiest winter since I don't know when.  Goodness, it's been brutal, at least for us Southern types.  I am not a cold weather girl so this weather really has me dreaming of warm sunshine, sandy beaches, and the ocean.  Ahhhh. 

 Kerry has been having fun making snow angels and even doing some sledding but I think even she starting to get a bit Winter weary.  The good news, though, is that the forecast calls for temps in the mid 60's by this time next week.  Yay!!

I've been happily married to my wonderful husband for 15 years. Two year ago we were blessed to welcome our first child, a Daughter from China and are absolutely in love with her.
