She has the chickenpox. Alexandria had her MMR and Chickenpox vaccine a week ago and now we have the chickenpox. I am not sure of the vaccine now. It is all over her. Nights haven't been so fun, I guess it itches pretty bad.

This makes me smile....

Every morning
and this makes me smile every evening!!

wow . I am tired from the day. Meals, school, laundry, beds to be made, toys to clean up, dishwasher to be done, extra sport activities to go to and the list can go on some days. And I love to sit down at the end of the day and read , well I just enjoy sitting in a quiet house. The Day is done.

Well , we had another snow day yesterday. It was Will's party and it made the excitement a little more intense. It was fun. However, I forgot my camera so you can see that event on Mark and Lauren's link. We got home and at just before dark Elizabeth wanted to go out and build a snowman before it melted. She learned her lesson from the last snow. She got up the next morning on the last snow and was upset to see she couldn't build a snowman because it was melted. Alexandria is looking out the front door watching her sister play wishing she could go. I will not be able to get by with not taking her out before to long. For some reason it is not as exciting to be out in the wet cold snow anymore to me like it was when I was a kid. I was looking for my gloves and I don't even have any. Elizabeth had to use her dad's . But we were thankful for some snow boots sent to us from Ellie and Ava.

Let it Snow !!! Let it Snow!!!

Can you see the snow? I had to take the picture while it was snowing because by morning we may only have ice and then that will be gone by noon. So Elizabeth thinks that this is the snow storm of all times. She said it was "unbelievable, incredible, wonderful and amazing" This is the first she has ever seen that she remembers.

Birthday Party

We had a birthday party Saturday for Alexandria. The theme was clown. I had the same cake made for her that I had when I turned one and it is the same bakery. I also had it done for Elizabeth so maybe the tradition will continue. Yes she dug right into her piece of cake, but didn't really eat it just enjoyed smearing it everywhere. Didn't get that picture . Elizabeth painted all the kids faces like a clown including Cameron the "big kid". She did a pretty good job.

It has been a Year and......

Alexandria Grace is ONE YEARS OLD. Time does fly. I made cupcakes today for her so we could sing Happy Birthday to her when Elizabeth got home from school. We were glad Will was with Nanny today so he could join in on the fun. I wasn't able to have Noah and Addison because they are sick but we hope they will be well to come to the official party on Saturday. You can see her one year photos here
