Happy Valentines Day

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
I hope this day and every day is full of love for everyone in everything you do.

You Are My Sunshine

Some of the things Adalyn comes up with are so funny. She knows that every ones middle name is "Gail" just like hers. I'm mommy Gail, daddy is daddy Gail, Dalton is Dalton Gail etc. Dalton tried to explain to her that every ones name is not like hers, she didn't want any part of his explanation, she knows she's right, end of story.
I baked a cake for my friends birthday in a bundt pan the other day and when she saw it she said "a donut cake". I'd never even thought of it looking like a donut but I guess it kinda does.
She calls yesterday, last day.
I told her one day when she was sucking her thumb it was going to fall off if she didn't quit sucking it. Later on she came to me pointing to her thumb and said "see mommy it didn't fall off". She also told me that when she was 4 she wouldn't suck it any more. Well her birthday is a couple of months away so we'll see how that goes. One things for sure, if she sucks it till she goes off to college, she'll still be my sunshine.

Snow snow go away!

I'm really getting tired of the white stuff. Don't get me wrong, I like a little snow every now and then but this has gone on way to long. The kids might miss their spring break and I doubt this is the last we see of the stuff. I did enjoy being with the kids last week and sleigh riding though and the snow cream isn't bad either but when the temp gets in the single digits I'm over it. We had a ice storm on top of the snow so that made for a interesting week. It's suppose to be warmer this weekend so maybe that will get rid of some of the ice.
Adalyn has a cold and not feeling well. She is so sweet, when you ask her if she is feeling bad and she says "yes" and you say sorry she says "why, you didn't do anything". She learned her phone number and how to ride her bike(w/training wheels) last week so aside the ice it was a great week.

Bloggy Award

My friend AZ mom gave me this award. I met her through blogging and love reading about their life in the desert. She is honestly the kind of person you could show up on her door step one day and she would invite you in with open arms. I hope one day to be able to do that. She has two adorable kids and I love her Monday menus. If only I could be that organized. Thank you so much for this award and your kind words.

Now here are the directions:"These blogs are exceedingly charming.These kind bloggers aim to find friends and be friends.They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships will be propagated.Please give more attention to these writers.Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly- written text into the body of their award."

She was waiting and waiting for her daughter from China. She made the cutest cakes to celebrate the wait. It was so exciting to relive all the excitement of what she was going through. She has a awesome mom that also has a blog with all kinds of neat stuff.
