Happy Birthday Nana Raine!

Yesterday was Daddy's birthday and Nana's birthday is today, so Presley has been getting lots of "Happy Birthday" practice!  Happy Birthday Nana! We love you!

Happy Valentine's Day!

We hope you have a great Valentine's Day! This is a video of Presley this morning eating breakfast.  She woke up at 3:30 this morning and only went back to sleep from 6:00 to 6:45. Maybe she was just ready to play with her Dora microphone.

Cabin Fever

After I rescheduled my doctor's appointment 4 times, I finally went today!  We all needed a break from these 4 walls, so we made it a family trip.  Presley and I went to my appoinment, and Nick headed to fill up the car. Presley was scared because she thought that she was going to see the doctor, but once she realized I was the one getting a shot, she was fine with it. Ha! After we left the doctor's office, we headed for Build-a-Bear. Before we even got there, Presley proclaimed that she was not building a bear. She was going to build a horse. She picked out some beautiful wings for her horse, and we were off to meet Nana Raine for lunch.

 We ate at Forbidden City, and Presley really liked Nana's wonton soup. Thanks for sharing Nana! We left the mall and picked up our pottery at Fiefly Studio and stopped by Lifeway to get a workbook for a new Bible study called "Me, Myself, and Lies."

When we made it home, we played for a while, then I somehow got sidetracked organizing Presley's closet.  I decided to add Presley's spring/summer wardrobe to her collection.  I kept everything from last summer in the hopes that it would still fit or she can wear the dresses as shirts over leggings. I am so ready for spring!
When I came out of Presley's bedroom, I found these two watching Kai-Lan. Presley has on a tutu =)
When Nick had enough Nick Jr., he headed outside to take out the trash.  He also said that he might knock some of the ice off of his truck. Good luck honey. It might take a few days.

We tried to go sledding today. Yes we had big plans. We had lots of fun, but the snow was just still  too fluffy! We don't have a sled, but after this winter, I think that we might need to invest in one!  Here are some pics from our fun morning. We rode the 4-wheeler to the practice field, and pushed Presley down the hills.  We had lots of fun!

Snow Again!

We watched the 44th Super Bowl last night with friends, and I was really glad that the Saints won! I was also glad that we made it home at a decent hour- the thought that we would be out of school today never even crossed my mind.  We got a call at 6:00 this morning that school had been cancelled and jumped out of bed to see the snow.  It was beautiful, and it just kept coming! It eventually started raining, but I think they are calling for more snow tonight. School has already been cancelled for tomorrow.  We have big plans of getting up and going to sled (if we can find a hill).  Here is a pic of my favorite people playing in the snow and a pic of north campus!

Simple Pleasures

A blogger that I love gave me this idea, and I like it so much you may see it again!

One of my simple pleasures is Presley's smile.

Another is showing Presley something she has never seen before.

Yesterday we watched cookies bake in the oven.  Clearly, she was happy!

She and Nick dunked their cookies in milk, and after Presley ate 2, she asked for more!
