She's growing up

Yesterday Fro got in trouble at day care and she was sitting next to the teachers when they told me about it, so when we got home she went straight to her room and crawled into her frog tent. A minute later I hear her calling and the conversation went as follows:

Fro - "Mom can you come here?"
Me - "Yes, give me a minute"
Fro - "I need to talk to you Cloe to Heidi"

She is constantly keeping me on my toes!

Let It Snow!

It finally snowed in Denver this week, as opposed to staying in the mountains! Nothing really accumulated until last night. When I went to wake Fro up this morning I excitedly told her that it had snowed while we were sleeping, cuz this girl loves snow. Instead of jumping out of bed like she has in the past she rolled over and told me "Good, that means school's cancelled". I truly hated to burst her bubble but Colorado is a bit more advanced and a 1/4" of snow does not shut anything down.

One of the best thing about holidays is the fun baking one gets to do. Over the past few years I have fallen very far behind in my holiday baking, o.k. it's been non-existent, though I still plead at least one more years vacation from Halloween baking after my dozen or so Twinkie owls I made fro Fro's pre-school a few years ago. :) Anyway, I was stalking a few web sites just before St. Patricks Day and found the cutest cookies to make. I normally stick with the shamrock sugar cookies, but when I found Leprechaun Hats I just knew I had to try them, and boy did they turn out cute. Fro had a great time helping me too, it was perfect for her. Her job was to place the marshmallows on the cookies and then she had her own bowl of frosting to cover the cookies with, she had a blast.

The finished product.

And for anyone wondering what the Twinkie Owls were see below!

I do tend to get a little carried away with the details of some projects, but they are fun! :)

Mornings are so much fun!

When I went into wake Fro up this morning our conversation went as follows:

Me: Fro time to wake up and get ready for school
Fro: No mom, I'm not done practicing.
Me: What are you practicing?
Fro: I need more practice sleeping so leave me alone!

I have said it before but I will say it again, I am so screwed!

First Snow

When Mother Nature decides to make a statement she really doesn't hold back. We got our first real snow fall a little over a week ago and boy did we get snow, kind of. My place got between 25" and 27", but we only got about 8" at my office, it's about 18 to 20 miles away! All I have to say is that I truly hope this isn't a sign of what our real winter is going to be like, especially since our school district only scheduled two snow days into the calender, and they already used them. If we get the weather some are predicting we will be in school until July. But in true Colorado style, the snow was basically gone in two days and the temp was up to 60 degree's by the next Monday.

O'well. Fro had fun. I woke her up Wednesday morning (the first day of the snow fall) with guess what, it snowed last night and there is no school today. She sat right up in bed and said YEAH! Not sure which she was more excited about, no school or the snow. Which ever she had a great time playing in the snow. It wasn't wet enough to make snowmen of snow balls so we made snow angels, attempted a fort and just ran around in it. I have concluded that snow is really for the kids, they enjoy it much more than adults, at least this adult.

Fro is not happy at all about the snow!

Snow Angels!!!!!

No, the snow isn't THAT deep, Fro is just burying herself in it. This is Wednesday afternoon, it continues to snow the rest of the day and all night so double what you see on the cars and you'll get the idea.

So here we are again on the first day of school. We are in the 1st grade this year. Fro was pretty excited this morning, you definitely can't tell from this picture, but I think she was a little nervous too. She got a little clingy while we were waiting for her class to gather, but she was very happy to help hold the sign while walking into the class room.

Her is her new teacher. She seems really nice. Fro got to hang out with her at the end of last year so this fall the transition would be easier. It's nice to be at a school that is pro-active and ready to anticipate potential issues.

Last Wednesday they had a back to school night where we went and met the teachers and brought school supplies. As Fro and I walked down the hall about every other person was saying 'hi' to Fro. It was really cute.

Anyway, we have the first day out of the way and we are keeping our fingers crossed that we continue on the same great path that we ended on last year!

Newest Member of the Family

So after almost eight years, and Cloe's many pleas I finally broke down. Meet Tallulah, she's a 2006 Passat, 6-speed manual transmission, (fake) leather interior, and actual leg room in the back seat. Reggie was a very good car and it was sad to see him go, but it was time to move up in the world, plus poor Fro needed more leg room cuz she will continue to grow and she barely had room to move her feet in the older style Jetta!
