Happy 2nd Birthday Gracie!

Everything is Minnie Mouse and pink as we celebrate Gracie's 2nd Birthday!  We started the day by singing Happy Birthday to her as we went in to get her out of bed.  She was excited!  As you can see, we gave her a Minnie Mouse dress up outfit which she was more than ready to put on and play in.  Grace received some real nice gifts. The Mickey Park Playhut was from Susie.  The pots, pans and play birthday cake was from grandma.  Aunt Shelley and family sent a cute summer dress.  An apron and chef's hat helped in keeping her clean as she made her birthday cupcakes!  We had a great day resting after a fabulous winter camp weekend, celebrating Grace and the gift we have in her, and praising God for the many blessings we have!

Snow Play!

We finally got enough snow to have a play day!  Getting ready was a chore.  Gracie had so many clothes on, I am not sure her arms could go down!!!  Dad played with the kids outside for a while.  It only took about 10 minutes before Grace was cold and wet and tired of the snow.  Charlie and Dad made a snow man, went sledding and took a small hike to find our run away dog, Sierra.  The snow is nice, it sure is beautiful, but when it is all said and done, we enjoy going inside and getting dry clothes on and warming up by the fire!
