Buckin' Broncos!

The Christmas bouncy horses from Nana and Papa have been a HUGE hit!

Lily's orange one is named Blossom
Amelia's purple one is named Rainbow.
Mack's brown one is named Cocoa.

Thanks, Nana & Papa!

C'mon sleepy head!

Not suprisingly, Lily and Mack were up early on Christmas morning while Amelia was sawing logs in my bed. Once Mack saw the Toy Story figures with all the stockings, he was desperate to open Jesse. I told him he had to go ask Sissy.

Friend of the Week

Lily is the Friend of the Week in her 3rd grade class this week.

I spent an inordinate amount of time making her poster, but I wanted to make it extra special since we haven't done this since she was in kindergarten. If there was a spotlight in first grade, I didn't get the memo, and I totally blew it for second grade because Lily was the star of the week right after Christmas break and I totally forgot. So I stayed up into the wee hours of the morn to complete her poster. And let's face it- I'm an anal perfectionist (except when it comes to housekeeping).

Lily was especially excited about putting her baby picture and others of her growing up on the poster. (Click to view larger.)
