Finally...a snow day

School cancelled the night before b/c they were worried about this white stuff, well we only got an inch & a half so the girls finally get to do this...
at the top of our HUGE hill they sat ready...waiting for their leader to take off!
but nothing.

because their leader had never been sledding before & she thought the string attached would control all steering & the gas to go...but no

soon enough she caught on & was ready to instruct everyone else that might be clueless as well.

then the neighbors heard their was fun to be had so they joined in

and Liza's friend Brynn heard she was a pro sledder so she got to come over & join the screaming cold fun

the next day we got a real snow fall so they continued playing well into the night just in case it all melts tomorrow!

(by the way I did do some pro sledding myself & it was fun until I got cold)

Look who got a certificate for being Liza's, not her wonderful, hardworking, patient, incredible, give you a treat whenever you want, tries her best not to flip out when forcing you to practice piano, most favorite Looks like piggy takes it all. The reason piggy won, well, he just does one thing..."pigy helps me go to sleep"

I should think about doing a whole lot less around here. Oh wait, I already do.

Last night Eliza came to me while I was making dinner (it was a gourmet dinner consisting of 2 boxes of Arthur shaped Mac & Cheese) to show me the outfit she had picked out for school. Yes there are two belts...quite stylishly placed. Lately she has been loving a side ponytail with a headband. This ensemble reminds of outfits my sister Tammy would put really, they were cute (like the star spangled banner dress?)
I have learned that all that really matters is that if a girl feels cute...she is.
(This rule does not apply to anyone over 10)

Remember their favorite?

Every morning, mid-morning, noon, mid-afternoon or anytime there is a moment of silence she asks for 'bill bear' you know...our beloved Little Bear

She likes to get up close & personal

Life is really good if you get a lollipop while watching thee favorite show of all time or at least the favorite show of her time!

We are happy & have no complaints during this half hour of pure bliss...

We can only smile for the camera once b/c she might miss something from the pre-recorded episode she has already seen twice today

'just let me curl my toes & swing my little legs & I promise I won't trouble you for much mom'

Life really is quite simple & happy when little bear is around
(every time I catch a minute of the show I swear mother bear is always making
a chocolate cake, maybe that's her secret to why she's always so patient with that little
bear...she's always in a sugar comatose!)
