A day in the snow!

We FINALLY got to play in the snow today!! It snowed a few days ago, but then turned to bitter, miserable coldness......we're talking highs in the teens.....but today's weather was nice and warm. Well, warmer than it has been at least. It did get above freezing!!

Cousin Davi came over to join in on the fun.

2 little cuties having a great time!!

Mom's turn!! I didn't get ready today....don't look too close:)

So proud of their snowman!

Davi on the rideable snowbunny.

Halli on the snowbunny; official name: Princess Snowman Bunny.

The festivities ended with a nice cup of hot cocoa. Does it get any better than that?
Merry Christmas everyone!!

Halli's Birthday Party

Halli's 4!!!

Well, almost.......

This sweet little gal's birthday is actually December 28th. Due to the fact that it is 3 days after Christmas, we have always celebrated it one month early (with the exception of her 1st birthday....) and it has worked out great. We do a party on Nov. 28th and then on her actual birthday we go out to lunch or to a movie or something. So here are some highlights from the par-tay:

Her "Barbie and the 3 Musketeers" cake. She was a little obsessed with the movie and had not even seen it yet.....have I ever mentioned this girl loves Barbies???

BTW I made it.

C'mon people, you know me better than that!!

A game of castle ring toss:

Grandma and Grandpa Davis gave her this ballerina doll. She loves it!

She finally got the Barbie and the 3 Musketeers movie!! It was so cute when she opened it; she said "who gave me this??" and I told her me, daddy, and Ella and she gave me a big hug and said "thankyou mommy!!!" Such a sweetie. She's been waiting FOREVER!!

The coveted "Married" Cinderella

She had a great time!!

Happy "early" Birthday Halli!! We love you and are so grateful you're part of our family!!
