Gotta Get Outside

Yesterday the girls wanted to play in the backyard after church.
The sun was shining, but it was COLD!
They didn't seem to mind though. They were just happy to play outside for a little while.
They played outside for about an hour (then the sun was starting to set).
All I can say is- we (I) can't wait for warmer weather!

New Table

Chris' parents gave us a new dinning table for our 10 year anniversary. 
We looked for months......seriously months.
We ordered one on November 1st from online Amish.
And it was delivered this morning just after 8am!
This morning we all sat on the bench together. Then everyone was off to their school/work.

Tonight Chris put the legs on (he also installed a new garbage disposal and dishwasher this month!!)
And we got it all put together.
Here it is with all 4 leaves in it.

And with no leaves (they are self storing leaves. Whoa Whoa)
This is what it will look like all the time in our house.
And we have 2 more chairs that will find a home in Caitlin and Ashlee's room at their desk.
We love it!
Thanks Trish and Doug!!

Molly's hair is finally long enough for her to wear pigtails, and they are so cute!
The first day she still had some hair in a little rubber band in the front and then I clipped it down, but it kept coming un-clipped. So it looked funny, and I never did it like that again.
 (She is taking a picture of me with her phone)

I loved her hair in pigtails so much that she wore it that way for a straight week and a half before she wore it down again.

Play dough

The girls can play with play dough for hours, and I happily let them play for hours.
Yesterday they were bakers, complete with hats and aprons.
They made some pretty nice looking food!

Bouncy House!

Yesterday there was no school (we don't have school nearly every other Friday. I wish we would just have school and get out earlier at the end of the year, but they didn't ask me)
I took the girls to Utah to do some shopping, and my friend, Amanda, came along with us!!
After lunch we stopped at Kangaroo Zoo for something fun for the girls to do.
They played hard for a long time, and finally told us they were ready to go.
Molly was very leary at first, but warmed right up when Caitlin and Ashlee took her with them onto the structures. After that she only wanted to go on whatever they were going on.
So she did.
Even on the really high, steep ones.
She was fearless.
Caitlin is helping Molly up the ladder.
After a few times, Molly could climb all the ladders by herself.
Caitlin and Ashlee were very nice in helping Molly and playing with her.
 Lots of static!

The girls new desk is moved up to their room and they LOVE it. We got desk protectors and put another coat of protectant on the top, and I helped them get it all organized.

Happy Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday, I am now 33!
I had a great day with many presents.
Chris and I went out to lunch.
And we rang in the New Year at our friend's house.
