We got this beautiful afghan from my sister this week. It was our Christmas gift from her, and she worked on it for nearly a year. We love it. It has already gotten lots of love!
A toddler in overalls and pigtails is one of the cutest things! Lately she has asked for, "Two big tails." It is SO much easier to get her hair up in ponytails that it used to be, and we don't have to use any bobby pins or barrettes. She has worn them most days this week :)
We had quite a full day Wednesday. My dad's birthday was on Thursday and we weren't going to be able to catch him because of a crazy schedule. We ended up leaving home around 9 to go get treats and go see grandpa. Great grandma was on the way, and I haven't seen her since before Christmas so we decided to pick up a treat for her too and drop in. She had about 45 minutes for us before she went visting teaching. Then we went to see my dad. He works in a secure office so we had to visit outside. We gave him the fun treats that we had picked out at the store. Grandma sent me a text about joining her for lunch, and I thought "why not?" So we did. We stopped to try to find swimsuits on the way home, but it was a bust. I counted my blessings that she still took a nap even though it was a bit later.
We are loving this beautiful weather.
I promised her a special treat for being so brave. She wanted ice cream. We were lucky that my parents were in the area, so we went out with them and my sister's family. Those sunglasses were fixed to her most of the weekend :)
She had an aunt and uncle stop by with some special treats for her to help her feel better. She loves having people come over. I'm not sure what she was more happy about...seeing them or the things they brought her.
And...we have our weekly family photo. It will be fun to see these at the end of the year. I sure love this little girl's personality!
