Eliza Fix

I have been sick, so I haven't posted for a while. I'm sure you all are ready for an Eliza fix. She has really been hamming it up lately, and been very generous with her kisses (which may be why we were all sick, but oh well).

Kisses for Daisy

Kisses for Daddy

With Mommy's hat (it looks much better on her)

Check out all that drool.

Baby Steps

Eliza has started taking a few baby steps, and I just had to capture them on video. Here is my big brave girl taking her first steps. She'll be running all over the house in no time, I'm sure. And yes, our Christmas tree is still up...please don't judge.

Ready for Spring

We had a wonderful Christmas, a happy New Year and Phillip and I had great birthdays. I can't believe my little boy is already 12. Less than a year now until we are into the teenage years.

We have had snow on the ground since Christmas Eve, and it just keeps building up. The boys have not returned to school from Christmas break yet, due to the extreme weather we're having. I don't really remember the last time we were above 32 degrees here, and today's windchills are in the 20-30 below zero range. There is question as to rather we will even reach zero for a HIGH temp tomorrow. So there is a ton of snow on the ground, but it is too dangerously cold to enjoy it. I don't ever remember Missouri being this cold for this long. We have been trapped in the house most of the week, and I might be a little (more) crazy now. There seems to be hope that we will get a warm up by the middle of next week (a 35 degree heatwave). Thankfully we got some great new games for Christmas, and we are making good use of them.

We are so ready for it to warm up, we had some fun today pretending it was Springtime (thus the Easter bunny ears). I think perhaps we will rejoice a little extra this year at the sight of spring blooms. I hope everyone is staying warm.
