Izzy has had several viruses this winter, the last being just last week. She had a fever of 103, and then three new teeth popped through. Now she has six little teeth to bite her sisters with.
The upstairs bathroom has been something Evan and I have wanted to update since we moved in. It's like a deep dark cave. Painted a nice flesh color. Ugh! We wisely have some people doing the work for us. We are replacing tile surrounding the tub as well as the floor, repainting, adding new lights, putting up bead board, and putting in a new vanity and sink. I can't wait.
Bathroom demo. Oh my.
My sister Amy sent me this purple shirt and she knows that she will probably never see it again. I love this color. My sister and I send clothes back and forth to each other. It just makes my day to see a fun package in the mail from her. It's her hand-me-downs and they are fabulous. And I have this purple vest to wear it with. Too much purple? Never!
Tile for floor and funky accents that will be added to the tile surrounding the shower.
One afternoon we watched Maya perform her new yoga moves at school. She tried to not act so excited that we were there, but she was grinning like crazy. And the other girls had the time of their lives seeing her locker, desk, and classmates.
Zoe could stay outside all day, just like Maya. Here she is in her all-purple glory, eating all the snow on our deck.
Maya FINALLY one of her top teeth that has been a bit wiggly since September. The root was the longest I have seen on a baby tooth-GIANT! She pulled it out herself and was thrilled when the tooth fairy remembered to pick up her tooth before the next day began. Sometimes the tooth fairy forgets here in Minnesota.....darn that tooth fairy.

The tile so far on the bathroom. Such a welcome change from the flesh colored tile previously.
Brynn is into barbies. She follows after her Mama in that regard. Oh barbies....such good times!
The buns and me.
we still officially have snow here in minne. blech. i am not-very-patiently awaiting spring and all it's glory.
we started re-doing our bathroom. it's has been a huge process and i am thankful to not be doing it myself. i like projects that get done in a day or so. and the decision making! i am happy that this is the only project we are doing this year. thank goodness.
izzy is nearly crawling. she just pulled herself up to the couch today! but she gets herself into trouble all the time. i have to keep my eyes on her all the time, and she is not even crawling!
zoe is my little helper. she loves our one-on-one time when brynn is at school. she loves to go places and hates it when we get home.
brynn is going to a neighborhood pre-school and also one through the park district here in minne. the park services here are amazing. she learns all about nature, animals, and is outside doing something fun like snow shoeing every week.
maya is busy reading to izzy every day after shool. it has been fun to see the reaction that izzy gives her sisters, especially maya. she loooooves her maya.
and evan and i just celebrated 10 years! oh my! we are planning a trip to ireland in a few weeks and i can hardly wait. we were thinking of going somewhere warm but then decided to go to ireland at the last minute. can't wait to see the green hills, the cliffs of moor, and sheep!
hope you all have a lovely weekend!
