Remember when.....

This photo fell out of a book that I was going to read Reagan. Any guesses on what year it was taken? I bet you can get pretty close from the hair styles!

Winter and Quilts

Since I am catching up a little on the blog, I thought I would add that if you live in a different part of the country, you are missing out! We have had lots of snow. The girls have been sledding, shoveling and making snow angels a few times. Unfortunately, the cold temps/wind chills have been preventing getting out more. I have some pics on the camera that I need to download and will post some of the fun.

About a week ago I got back two quilts from being long arm quilted. I am currently putting on the binding so they can be used to keep us warm (actually they will keep Gabby warm at night). Will post pics when I am done.

Other things we are doing while it is cold...Kids are playing in the basement (roller skating, scootering, dolls) or pesting one another. After a really rocky start, Gabby is potty trained. Bill has started our taxes...ugh! We've been making cookies. We are looking into what school Reagan will attend next year. And we will be celebrating Gabby's birthday on Tuesday. Can't believe that she will be 3.

Hope your winter is going well and you are staying warm!

Other Holiday Stuff

Before Christmas, Reagan had a Christmas program at school. Unfortunately, the pictures I did get were too dark and it was difficult to see her as she was standing in the back row behind some kids. She did a great job singing and continues to sing the songs for us even though we are past Christmas.

She also had a pajama/video day at school. The kids got to wear their pj's that day and watch a short video. The kids had a blast.

Reagan and her teacher

The girls leaving class. This way of exiting was instigated by Reagan and Gabby in the fall with one little girl and the 2 of them. Now there are up to 8 girls holding hands as they are going out.

Reagan reading her new book from her teacher to Gabby.

Ho Ho Ho!

Merry Christmas, all! So we are behind. What's new? We had a great Christmas. We hope you did too! We stayed in town this year and it was a very relaxing laid back Christmas. The girls woke up late...we actually had to wake up Gabby. The girls opened the presents from Santa. We went to church. Came home and ate lunch. And finally opened the rest of the gifts. The girls took their time. It was pretty fun. We broke tradition and had shrimp instead of ham this year....YUM!! Here are a couple of pics from the day.
