Eagle of the day

Abigail was so proud. So was mom and dad. 
She got "Eagle of the day" at her school. 

When we got into the car she said " When my teacher said my name my heart just stopped and got big and broke. I was so excited mommy" ! 

To funny!

Unfortunately one of her prizes was a regular size Root Beer! If you know Abigail and have had the opportunity to be around her after sugar you know what a soda would do. After 6 hours of literally bouncing of the walls I have decided that I will be buying her another at the store and letting her drink it before school on Monday morning. When the teacher tell's me how her day was I will tell her that payback is a bitch! 

Sounds like a good plan to me but I wont follow through because I wouldn't put Abby through another 6 hours of a sugar rush to prove a point.

I have to admit I didn't do the best job monitoring her at home, I left the room and she guzzled it

I also learned a lesson...

Ice Castle

Spent the weekend in Park City. 
We spent time relaxing in the hot tub and spending time with friends.

We went to Midway and walked through the Ice Castle. 
If you decide to go, don't be like us, wear snow boots!
You are walking through in about a foot of ice and snow mix. It is freezing on the toes.

2nd tooth

Abigail lost her 2nd tooth tonight! It has been so loose and after dinner it was only hanging on by a thread. She was eating her chocolate cupcake and it fell out. She was so happy!

Enjoy the cupcake face!

After a night of being reminded several times about respecting others, listening to her parents, and following the house rules this is what I find on Abigail's door... 
We are going to be in trouble!

 After another discussion, I am asked to come look at her door again and this is what I see
 (You can come in)

Oh how I love her

Fun time making Alien gut's and dressing up and being silly. 

Abby asked Santa last year for a monster with guts... It took us forever to even figure out what she was talking about. Gross but she loves it!

Camille and Abigail LOVE to dress up and be silly!

We headed up to the Zoo. 
It has been so refreshing to have sunshine and blue skies!

 Surprisingly it was nice and warm being it was about 39 degrees today. This is the first time any of us have been to the Zoo in the winter. Most of the cats that are usually sleeping in the summer were up and about. It was the first time I have ever seen the Snow Leopard awake.

We will have to find a new tradition
Any suggestions?

Having fun

Don and I took Abigail & Camille skating! We had so much fun. Don and I had not been skating for at least 10 years maybe longer! Poor Abby fell a few times but recovered quickly and kept on trying. After about an hour we went on the bumper cares and rode a few rides. We then went bowling with all the kiddos. It had been a little over a year since we have had them all together. 
Fun Times!

 Not the best picture but we had fun
