Out with the OLD...

OBVIOUSLY my babies do NOT need a changing table anymore... and truth be told.... MOST of my friends are past that point too....
Circa Aug 2012
 so I mentioned to CountryDad I'd like some floating shelves and I gave away this...

and VIOLA....

CountryDad arrived... and put up floating shelves!!! You all WISH your Dad was as
handy/cool/ah-may-zing as mine...

I stained 'em...Husband put up some towel hooks.....

and we are DONE with changing baby diapers

and onto gals who can hang their own towels....

 
don't I miss these days though....

A few past years....HERE
 
we LOVE our trips out to the barn...because really... is there anyone who can resist a four week old foal? :)



or a race horse that snuggles? (and actually doesn't race? :)


or piglets!?!?!





such a special relationship with these gals... love them!

a wonderful afternoon in the barn for sure!!!

BOWLING

So this happened....

Miss B has been BEGGING to go bowling since way back HERE when her sister got to go at a birthday party....she asked almost EVERYONE to take her and finally on Saturday, during a BLIZZARD we surprised her.... Minnie had a play date with some friends from school so it was a perfect opportunity

oh yeah, and then THIS happened :)
 
she had an ABSOLUTE ball (pun totally intended) they were playing all her favorite songs (Disney movie songs) and it was even GLOW bowling for the first 1/2 hour or so that we were there... she sang, she danced and she bowled :)
 
 SUPER fun 1 on 1 time with this girl!

This girl...

we got ready to leave for school last week so that I could do the "backpacks" and when I got into the basement there was Miss B with the helmet on... I said "you know we are going into the school right?" she said... "yeah. I want to wear this. Can you buckle it for me??" um... Ok. Sure.

Love HER. She wore it the whole time, could have cared LESS that people were asking her about it or giggling... I hope she NEVER loses her confidence, creativity and out going personality.


it helps to have friends who love to be just as silly as she does :)

Family date on a sunny Sunday afternoon...

Miss B wanted a French mani... I could not even STAND the cuteness!!!

Trying to find the happy in the cold, rainy, SNOWY days...
