Happy Birthday Todd

Birthday Breakfast - egg sandwich for Todd and scrambled eggs for Gracie.

Watching Daddy shovel the back steps for Tucker

Wants to go outside to help her Daddy.
(Look at all that hair!)

Lots & lots of snow - more than 2 feet in 3 days.

Layer of ice in between the layers of snow.

When will we see grass again?

Ice Fishing Village 

Lots of sheds for perch fishing and social drinking.  

I wonder if they really catch anything?  

Dinner at Shadow Lawn Inn

Thanks to our good friends, Katie & Dave, for watching Gracie so we could have a wonderful dinner date. 

For starters we had wine & brie then Todd ordered the Scallops wrapped in Salmon and I had Tenderloin with Blue Cheese.  DE-LiSH!

Birthday cake this year - a Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Icing.  Very yummy!

Gracie gave Todd the best gift of all - SNUGGLES with "night night" blankets!

Happy Birthday Todd!  
We love you so much!

Future Dancing Queen

Brunch BFF

Gracie had her usual apple & cinnamon cereal and fruit puree earlier this morning for breakfast.  Later, I decided I shouldn't skip the most important meal of the day and I made some scrambled eggs.  Well - it appears I have a breakfast buddy.  

Thinking "what is this?" 

Stick with whatcha ya know - can't go wrong with water.

Hummm - squooshey!
The spoon is there as a toy not as a utensil yet. 

Yummy - scrambled eggs are delicious!

"What?  Is there something on my face?"

"I'm saving that for later!"

Little Big Girl Chair

Gracie and I went shopping and what did we just happen to find?  This adorable chair!!!  I am beyond excited about it and I think it is perfectly sweet for her.  It is a soft pink suede material, upholstered beautifully, and even safely rocks a little!  I am so happy with it and Gracie seems to love it.  She climbs up into it, will kneel on the seat and "talk" to us while peering over the side, and usually will sit in her very special big girl chair while we read her a book.  Watching her sit in this chair is just the cutest thing.

Can I lick the bowl?

I made a Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cake with Bailey's Icing for our neighbors.   Guess who enjoyed licking the bowl with us?

Help Wanted - Dishwasher Needed

Tucker's Treats? Or Gracie's!

A little clip

I've been waiting and waiting and waiting to be able to "fix" Gracie's hair.  Well, I think her hair is finally long enough to be styled with some accessories.  My good friend, Crystal, sent Gracie 10 adorable ribbon clips from Ali Bug Bowtique.  Thank you so much Crystal!  I love them and Gracie doesn't mind having them in her hair!!!  YAY!!!

This is one of my absolute favorites of Gracie and Todd.  She sure does love her Daddy and I can tell you that he definitely adores and loves her.  

A little love bite!

The Evolution of Dance 2

I loved Judson Laipply's first Evolution of Dance routine and he just released his 2nd.  It is too funny.  Hope you enjoy it.
