Saddest...Carnival...EVER!

I don't know how to say it any other way! This was supposed to be this amazing Holiday Fair and Craft Show in a cute little town (the town is cute!) just a few miles up the road from us. But when we arrived,...well...it was pretty much deserted except for the people working there. (Carneys?...small hands...oh, nevermind!) At least it was indoors and well heated! ;-) Still not sure Elizabeth knew what to make of the rides. Judge for yourself:

Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow, and, What's That?...Oh Yeah, More SNOW!

Welcome to the Holiday Season from Okemos, Michigan! In case you were wondering...yes, we are FREEZING COLD!!!! Here are pictures of our house (and views of our backyard and neighborhood from the front yard) from last weekend!













And...it still looks the same...covered in SNOW!

Chillin' Like a Villain...

Check out the way Elizabeth is just kicking back, lounging in her pink chair, "reading" her bunny book. We're happy she loves her books so much--so, for now, we won't make a big deal about the fact that it's upside down! ;-)
"Yo, homey...I got some mad reading skillz!"

First Night in the Big Girl Bed!

Well...tonight is the night!
So...we are bringing you up-to-the-minute coverage on the Big Event!

Here are some pictures of Elizabeth's "Big Girl Room" with her "Big Girl Bed"!




























And then, a little video treat to document the bedtime ritual.

(You may notice...we did not have her crawl under the covers, yet. She is used to sleeping with these favorite little blankets on top of her, so we thought we'd ease in a little at a time before introducing the whole sheet and comforter situation.) I'll post tomorrow to let you know whether or not the first night was a success!

"Are You Chasin' the Train?"

Elizabeth got a Thomas the Train and little track for her birthday (yes, the cheapie plastic kind from Marshalls--but it's not supposed to be an heirloom, and it seems to do the trick!) As you can see, she never seems to tire of chasing it around the track. In fact, my guess is that you will tire of watching her chase it around the track long before she gives up! Enjoy!
