Netflix to the Rescue!

It's a rainy morning and we are taking it easy. We had a super, busy weekend and this is just what the doctor ordered. We are getting movies on Netflix directly through our Wii and they are enjoying Strawberry Shortcake right now. It is super cool and I highly recommend it for those of you with a Wii.

The Dantz Machine

This child makes me laugh out loud! This is how I found her this morning, when I came into the kitchen to check on her. She was just standing, waiting for me to notice her "get-up"! I have never been around an "almost" two year old with such a fun personality! She is something special.

Happy Monday.

Can you spot the rose on my headband?

Sweet Will took the girls to spend the night with his Mom and Dad tonight!
 He emailed me this pic. I love it!

Tonight has been wonderful, so far. I've been surfing the web in silence, while eating Skittles and popcorn. (And in my pj's since 7pm)  The TV has been off and the ringer on the phone too. I'm planning on hitting-the-hay soon and sleeping ALL night long, with no interruptions. I cannot think of anything better, except for my coffee that will start brewing at 8 am. That is going to be one fine cup of coffee! I will be ready to see those sweet angels when they return, but I'm loving this!

Thank you so much, WD for being SO thoughtful. ( Bea-Bea too for hosting the slumber party)
Sweet Dreams!

Little Miss Can't Be Wrong...

I've always heard about the terrible twos. We flew through those without much trouble, but somewhere between the "betes" diagnosis and turning three, we're experiencing something new around here. Little Miss is giving us quite a bit of sass.

Will picked her up from "Little Lambs" today and called  to say that the teacher gave him a bad conduct report. Her teachers are precious and the thought of her giving them attitude, made me sad. (plus, I'm sure they would not have mentioned it, if it had only happened today) I know it's a reality and kids get into trouble, but not mine but I just wasn't quite ready. The hardest part for us is trying to determine if she's acting 3 or if she really isn't feeling good....

So, if you witness this first-hand, please look away, because we are all over it!
Discipline 101 (with lot of love) has officially begun.

Cabin Fever

We've been spending entirely too much time inside this house. Do you know what I mean?!?!  The days have been cold and long, but we are pushing through.....

 Bye-Bye, Mr. Nana!

Saturday, Will decided to take the girls on a field trip to Michael's to get some supplies. I had most of the day to piddle around.  I got home in time to see the girls in action!  I'm thinking, Dantz might be a little left-handed princess. We will have to wait and see.

Bea's brother, Kip and his precious wife, Kristine came into town on Saturday for a quick visit. We all went to dinner and had a wonderful evening together. 

Kip and the lady with straight hair and glasses  Kristine

FINALLY, some sunshine and outside fun on Sunday! Lucy, the puppy down the street joined the girls for a playdate that afternoon. Lydia loves it when Lucy comes to play. I like the "puppy down the street" arrangement. :) 

That night we went over to Bea and Papa's for another delicious dinner and more fellowship with family.  Kristine was a big hit with both girls, but especially D. Thanks K & K for coming to visit and we all look forward to next time.

We are ready.....

to play outside! Are you?

We've been reading, watching tv, having tea parties, playing with blocks, cooking, painting, doing puzzles and while all of that is fun...we have a jeep calling our names outside! I think Mama would let us go out there, if we didn't have these nasty noses and bad coughs too. We are glad the sun is shining today!  

Happy Winter, Everyone!

Lost and Found...

This is "Mr. Nana" and he is asleep in our garage right now. I'm not sure who he belongs to, but he has been under our carport for two, full days. Lydia calls "Mr. Nana" her puppy. :-)
I know there's a family looking for this sweet dog. Neighbors, have you seen him before?

Pump is the Word...

We've had a long day today. We hit the road at 4:30am for Lydia's 8:30am appointment in Birmingham. It was her 3 month check up and she we got a good report. They are pushing the pump, which should  help regulate her blood sugar. We are game, so we've got some insurance investigating to do and classes to attend.

She snoozed most of the way up...
She watched some cartoons while we waited...
She relaxed while we waited....

 Texting while we continued to wait...
Acted silly with Daddy while we waited some more...

Back on the road and wiped out!
 (you know the sleeping is good when both mouths are wide open)

We are glad to be safe at home and hoping for a good night tonight. Pretty sure lights will be out sooner rather than later.

Just some of the wonderful memories from the holidays, but so many more that weren't captured on camera!
