Natalie really wanted to have her birthday at Red Robin restaurant so we told her to invite two friends and we would take her there. I couldn't figure out why she was so set on going and so excited until she kept asking if we'd told the waiters that it was her birthday. This shot is when they were singing to her. Look at her face! I think she is enjoying the attention just a little.---by the way she ordered a cheese pizza for dinner.

This is right after school when we opened Grandma Debbie's package. The kids really enjoyed skittles for their after school snack. After this we put together the treat bags. I'm pretty sure that's my kid's favorite part of getting ready for their party is putting together those treat bags. Her's containted:
2 balloons
a mini HSM notebook keychain
pixi sticks
jelly beans

All of these things she (and Lincoln since the same things will go in his treat bags this Sat. minus the HSM notebooks) picked out at the store. She couldn't wait to present them to her two friends.

fun in the sun . . .

Lincoln was thrilled to slide down the slide clearing all the snow with him. Look at his face. You'd think he was at Disneyland.

I had so much fun playing in the sun with the kids yesterday. The sun and snow. I forgot how much fun it is to play in snow with the warm sun shining on you to take that bite away. Speaking of the bite you get from the cold--Tuesday morning I was walking L into preschool and it was lightly snowing. I asked him if he was cold and he said, "No the snow is warm and ticklish." Aren't we supposed to say it is cold and stings? I thought it was ironic that he came up with the exact opposite of the norm. And on the way back to the car I noticed that it was so light it did sort-of tickle when it landed on your face. It made me smile. I sure like that kid!
