April? When did you get here?

She is no longer a birthday girl, and this shows her discontent at my failing to document two months worth of Daphne face time... see that admonishment!

It might have been a bit of a long winter...
And this poor girl had to put up/be entertained by her mommy a little more than she might have liked...
And, yes, we might get ants...
But, take a picture of a toddler and show them their own face- and you fully redeem yourself and you redeem fun!

Then, take a picture of yourself- and the light sparks again.
and then you get the laugh that can sustain you for another cold winter.
There is nothing quite like a mommy that is willing to humiliate themselves- and then post it online.
Too bad I can't share the laugh this one got on here. She actually cried tears of laughter.
Sorry for the posting delay- if you're still reading this! I'll try to behave as school slows down for the next two months and share these laughs and fun times more often.

daddy's little helper

With the latest impressive snowfall, Daphne insisted on shoveling with daddy. With daddy's creative thinking, we realized we had a perfect Daphne's sized shovel- the garden shovel, and she began her hard work.

She also insisted that mommy could not help but that I had to instead make snow angels while daddy and her shoveled.
I think she is going to give us a run for our money in about 10 more years... as if she isn't doing that now :-)
Slow work for that girl... at least she thinks she's helping.

the magic of snow

Before the next expected Christmas snow fall, I had to post pics of what magic the first snow of the season was for Daphne last week (I have always loved our kitchen window, but I am a little obsessed with it now that we have a toddler).

"Gasp"... "Look outside!"
"Is snow-weeen!"

another successful santa

When Santa came to our Christmas Eve party last year, Daphne was not the biggest fan.
She does fine with Santa Clause in public places... but she is NOT ok with him in the private of our home. At least as of one year ago.

But, last year when she got to see Santa, she did fine- in public.
And, she did fine this year as well. She might not look happy, but she loved it...
She did refuse to smile the whole time, but I promise she was happy.
She refused to look at Santa, but she loved him so much.

When she got down from his lap, she was given a present, but all she wanted was "Santa again? Santa again?". She could have cared less about her present! I can't wait to see how it will go when Santa visits our Christmas Eve party at Grandma and Poppa's this year. Promise I will post pictures! :-)

Merry Christmas... or as Daphne says, "Ho, ho, Ho, CHRISTMAS!"

running keeps you warm

It's too cold to sit around outside...

Must RUN! :-)
