We just got back from Dothan and had the best weekend. Hayes and I went and had a girls weekend and left the boys at home. They had a fun weekend too being by themselves! I think some time apart is good for H & W sometimes. It so rarely happens. They have been so excited to see each other and play together since we got back! Alyssa and I decided my mom needed to be fully celebrated on her 60th birthday, so we planned a birthday brunch for her and friends. It was a great party. I think she loved it and we all had a great time!! Alyssa did a super job getting her house ready, everything was beautiful!!!

Today is our Hayesie Daisy's 4th birthday! Truly, truly so hard to believe that she was born 4 years ago. It really goes by so fast. She has been well celebrated with a birthday breakfast and a precious Dora party this morning with her friends. It was super sweet and we had beautiful weather today. Many thanks to all who came to celebrate! Hopefully more pictures will follow but I got a new phone and all my pics are on there. High-tech lifestyle is not for me, I think I'm sticking w/my old school camera for pictures from now on!!

Last week it snowed in Birmingham! Usually I keep up and would know about a possible snow day, but this one snuck up on us and it was a big surprise! We do not see much weather or news stories on Disney Jr or Sprout or Nick Jr! It was so pretty and the kids loved watching it. It was like watching a rainstorm only it was snow. We had 2 go-rounds of playing outside but they were both so cold. My little warm blooded Alabama babies couldn't take the cold air for very long! We made a snowman but I forgot to snap a picture. It was a beautiful afternoon.

This is the end of week 3 of being out of school. Today was the first day that it is starting to seem like a long time. It's been so much fun. Nathan was home with us for a good while. We've played, played, played, played, mostly inside. This weather has been too cold to play outside for me! The week before Christmas we passed out candy canes at a nursing home close to our house. This is getting to be a favorite thing for us. The people are so sweet and they seem to really appreciate anything you bring them and they love seeing kids. And most importantly it's a good lesson for H&W in giving and sharing, and learning to love older people.
