Trip To A Museum

We were looking for something different to do today, so we decided to go to the Museum of World Treasures. I had actually never been. Olivia and Abigail were absolute angels the entire time (of course, you have to adjust to Olivia's pace which doesn't give you much time to look at things.) But, that is just the way she is. I expected a lot of replicas, but they had some pretty neat stuff including Abraham Lincoln's actual cane. Olivia is currently really into the Magic Tree House books. The one we read yesterday was about mummies in Ancient Egypt. So it was pretty cool for her to see two actual mummies, a sarcophagus, scepters, pictures of pyramids, hieroglyphics, etc.

Olivia loved the dinosaurs of course!

She especially liked that this guy's name was Logan (because he was found in Logan County.)

They have a pretty neat children's play area that both girls loved! Here is Abigail waiting for Olivia's puppet show to start.

Abigail was so pleased with herself for getting up into the chair all by herself! She loved playing at the little table like such a big girl!

She was just beaming with pride! What a cutie! And what a fun afternoon!

Happiness Is

Happiness is. . .

Building a train track all by yourself. . .

Skipping your nap to hang out with mom. . .

Chex Mix muddy buddies

Bath time!

Spending your Target gift card on a brand new bouncy green ball!

Sitting on the stairs and eating animal crackers

Getting a special teddy bear delivery on Valentines Day from mom and dad!

Hugs from someone special!

May happiness find you this Valentines Day!

Highs were in the upper 40s today, which felt balmy comparatively. Most of the snow was melting, but our backyard (facing north and shaded) still has tons of snow. So, Olivia and I got to play in the snow and didn't freeze while doing it. We had so much fun!!

We made a snowman that she named Binky.

We searched for buried treasure, played snowball catch and had a snowball fight (getting hit in the face with a snowball, even by a 6 year old, still stings.)

And here's a picture of me and my other sweetie! Such a silly girl!

Strike A Pose

This has made me laugh all night. I was changing Abigail's diaper and she didn't want her pants back on. Instead she sat down and "posed" by her chair to let me take her picture.

Haha! I don't know why it made me laugh so hard. Don't they always pose you this way for senior pictures? Kinda like this? I think we will recreate this same pose when she is 18 (with pants, of course.)

Abigail is so funny. She has learned how to turn on the CD player, so she constantly turns on her music and just boogies. It is such a hilarious this to watch. . .and so extremely cute. I don't know how I was blessed with such adorable girls who are so funny as well. They are just amazing, inside and out.

Back to school

After a week long snow/ inservice break, Olivia was excited to get back to school today. (Especially because Mondays are PE days and she loves PE!)

During the break, I was able to work on her Valentines. I wanted something really cute this year and thought these were adorable!! I just have to add the starfish name tags.
