off to a better place, part 2

For the second time, I have lopped 8-10 inches of my hair to donate to Pantene "Beautiful Lengths."

I feel proud, and grateful.


snowstorm, then Sigrid turns a half-year

Last week our county was basically shut down for two days while the snow fell non-stop for 48 hours. We were on the end that got the most (no surprise there), and I think we have maybe 24".

Then we celebrated Sigrid's half-year birthday yesterday with cupcakes & candles, and a new puzzle.

SO much frosting!

We won't do this every half-year, but it sure was nice to have a special treat & celebrate our big girl.


recent fun

Sigrid writing her name.

 Baby snuggle blankie cuddle.

 Then we got snow! Yay!

Indoor tricycle riding. She's really getting it figured out.

Flora loves her baby, and so she often insists on having her join us for meals.

Then a REAL lot of snow! Yay yay!

Flora & her baby (Penny) in matching jammies that belonged to Sigrid.

Then it got warm again & we had our first porch picnic of the year.

Then Papa made an indoor cardboard slide!

It was really fast....

Then Mama adjusted it and it was not quite so fast.

Warm sunshine again


Stuff your pockets full of rocks!

Now run around!
