My little snow angel

Today was a snow day. Unfortunately I had to work but daddy's school was cancelled so he got to stay home with Gabbie. Around 10 they ventured out to buy her first sled. Apparently she loved it! Also during sledding she dropped to the ground to make snow angels. We watched something on TV a while back where 3 people were making snow angels and she remembered and even told daddy what she was doing and what he should do! He denied her request though as he did not want to get wet.

I was very sad I missed her first real time playing in the snow but fortunately daddy took some pictures so I feel like at least I got to see some of it. From the looks of it I am thinking she had fun!

Snow angel time

I think she is closing her eyes to be silly.

Check out those new boots. I bought these for Gabbie a couple of months ago but besides wearing them around the house once or twice this is the first time she actually wore them out. Apparently when they went to buy her sled she had to walk around the store because of her new boots. This kid likes new shoes let me tell you! Daddy took this picture to show how snowy her booty was. Once they came in he bundled Gabbie up in warm clothes and they had princess chicken noodle soup!

My silly princess

Gabbie is really silly. Steve and I find ourselves laughing at her all day. She knows how to push our buttons and make us laugh. I always say to her 'Gabbie you are something else". She responds with "no you are something else mama". We can go back and forth for 4 rounds of this. That's my baby girl.

Not a whole lot going on. In two shorts weeks from today we will be celebrating Gabbie's 2 year homecoming anniversary! I cannot believe that much time has gone by. I would love to freeze her at this age for sure if I could. She is growing and changing so much. It is great to see her blossom but sad that she is now a little girl. I didn't think it was possible but every day I love her more and more.

Here is my silly princess. This weekend's outfit consisted of PJ's with a tutu on top.

Cousin Peyton came over to play Saturday and the girls had a blast.

I'm here

I am still here. I am fortunately feeling 100% better but Steve is sick and has been for a couple of weeks. I have been telling him to call the doctor for over a week but he hasn't. Tonight he finally said he guesses he should call the doctor. Hmm... I do recall a genius wife mentioning that a while back.

Gabbie is sick now. We had kind of hoped after this last set of tubes and getting her adenoids removed she wouldn't get sick as much but I guess that is not happening. I took her to the doctor today and somehow she has an ear and sinus infection. The doctor said the ear infection is a weird one too. The fluid isn't draining like it normally does. She is coughing a lot and not sleeping too well so it stinks. She is now on 3 meds so I am hoping by the end of the weekend she will feel better. On a positive side she was such a big girl at the doctor and didn't cry at all. When we went to Target to get her medication filled she landed popcorn, an icee, a princess ball, wonder pets phone, and 2 Dora snow princess babies. All she had to do was cross her hands and say please! She is getting good at playing us let me tell you!!!

Other than that nothing is really new. We are coming up on a very special anniversary which is Gabbie's 2 year homecoming. I cannot believe she has been home 2 years already. It seems like just yesterday. I cannot imagine my life without her.

Here are a couple of pictures from last weekend. They are not the best as Gabbie was a little sick but it's all I got. We went to visit the J family. Of course Gabbie had a blast playing with all of Jack, Jacob, and Jordyn's new Christmas toys.

Sweet baby Jordyn. She is already 10 months old. That is crazy!

Gabbie waiting patiently for play dough.

The party's over and I'm sick

Vacation has come to end. It sure is going out with a bang as I am super sick. I cannot stop coughing and am really congested. To be honest it is gross and tomorrow I return to work. I am praying a miracle occurs overnight and I wake up feeling better because this has to go soon. Fortunately I can shut my office door but with the walls being paper thin I am sure to gross someone out. Also, the constant coughing is killing my stomach and back.

Now for a couple of pictures. One day last week we took Gabbie to Monkey Joe's which is a jumping on inflatables type place. At first she was not happy because daddy couldn't jump with her. Eventually we got her to go on the toddler jumper and she loved it. She even tried a couple of other ones too and when it was time to leave she didn't want to go!

Jack redefining the cool-aid mustache! He sure liked that slushy!
