The boy LOVES to help vacuum. The handle goes all the way down to where he can push it easily, and today I got out of the shower to find him vacuuming without having been asked!! What a sweet helper boy!

I bought the boy a Lunchable to eat on the run between errands. He was awfully quiet in the backseat, so I asked what he was doing, and he said he was making a sandwich. I turned around at a red light and found him trying to eat this monstrosity! What a goofball.

Daddy brought home these adorable kimonos for the kids from Korea. Today, they got to wear them to church. The boy loves his, and kept running his fingers along the designs. Walking into church he did this weird slide move. I asked what he was doing and he said, very matter of fact, "I'm a ninja, mom." It was pretty cute.

Baby girl had her first birthday party today. We had an owl "Look Whoo's 1" theme. Everything was brown and pink with adorable owls. We had our closest friends over for lunch, cake, and presents. Baby girl was sweet and adorable, then went to take a nap! It was a good day.

The boy's preschool class took a field trip today to get ice cream at a local coffee shop/ bakery. It is a trip of about half a mile, and the class walked there. I asked the boy what flavor he got, and he said "green." He was quite proud of himself for walking "far far away" to get ice cream. It is quite the event apparently, the teachers take the class every year. He had a lot of fun, and though he loves preschool, he is ready for spring break next week!

Baby girl had her one year old baby appointment today. Here's how she stacks up...
Height... 30 inches... 75th percentile
Weight... 22 pounds... 75th percentile
Head circumference... 17 inches... 75th percentile
Iron level... 12.2 ... Really good!
75 seems to be her lucky number! The doctor was impressed with her dexterity and fine motor skills, and her verbal skills. She however was TERRIFIED with the picture of a deer that was painted on the wall. The only "problem" we noted was that she seems to be suffering from night terrors. She will, almost every night, start screaming/crying. She never wakes up for it, and it only lasts a few minutes, but every night it makes me miserable. I am so sad that my sweet baby is distressed. Every morning she wakes up happy and smiling though, so she seems to be ok. She had to have 5 shots (immunizations) and a toe poke (to check her iron.) She was NOT happy about that, but then she got a book from the doctor (they give each kid a book at every scheduled check up, which is an awesome thing for the doctor to do!) full of pictures of babies, and she loves it.

A teenaged friend of mine was looking at obscure holidays and discovered that today is National Toast day...so we celebrated. The girls made crazy t-shirts with the slogans "Make toast, not war" and "Spread the love, and the butter." They created a Facebook event, and invited everyone to celebrate by eating toast, making funny shirts, and spreading the love (and the butter!) So, here is my shirt I made. And yes, we had toast for breakfast! It's fun to be silly sometimes.

It was about time for a picture of Momma in here...so I present to you my new hair color. I went today and we decided on a more reddish, strawberry blonde color. It looks dark in the picture, but it's not actually that dark. I like that it makes my eyes look more green!
