Snow Day!

It was our very first snow day in Austin! I have lived here for 14 years and it has been icy and we've had sleet, but never powdery snow like there was today! Olivia and Amanda (with my help) built a fort in the living room since we couldn't play outside.
Olivia has talked about making a snow angel all winter and I am so glad that she got the opportunity!

I took this picture of our neighborhood park so we could remember the snow when it's hot and we're sweltering this summer!

Father Daughter V-Day Disaster (I Mean Dance!)

Adam took Olivia to the father daughter Valentine's Day dance at our church. She was so excited. We looked all week for the perfect dress and talked about how much fun it was going to be. The dance started at 6:30 p.m. I got a call at 7:11 and Adam said that they were on their way home. Apparently, Olivia freaked out. She was gagging and crying and begging to go home. Adam said that the other little girls were dancing and eating and having a great time, but not even a cookie and party treat bag could convince Olivia to stay at the dance. I was pretty disappointed, but we tried and that is what matters. Maybe next year!

***After looking at all these pictures, I feel like I have to add that "Yes, the side ponytail is cool for pre-schoolers!" I am not intentionally trying to make my 4 year old look like she just walked off the set of "Pretty In Pink!"

Skating Party!

Olivia went to her very first roller skating party today. She was nervous about skating at first but towards the end, she got the hang of it. We still have a long way to go in the roller skating department, but she enjoyed herself and I was proud of her for trying something new. This picture is of the birthday girl, Brooklyn, Maddy, and Olivia. These 3 are in the same class at school and seem to get along well. I am so happy that Olivia has met some new friends. She loves her school and all of her wonderful friends!

Olivia has always liked her anywhere chair that Josh's parents got her for Christmas several years ago. This year we decided that Amanda needed one too. She loves to climb in Olivia's and of course Olivia loves to kick her out of it. We don't have to worry about fights any more because Gramps got Amanda her very own chair for her birthday and she LOVES it!
