I have to say that these wool leggings I made have been great. I just put tights under them and they really keep her warm, perfect for running errands in this very cold weather.
I made these overalls a while ago and the top section is out of shrunken cashmere and I don't like it as much because it stretches so easily. I don't care for these but as I said, they are really warm and perfect for around the house. I'm posting this for my mom because she was helping me embellish these outfits and she wanted to see what I ended up putting on these....a cupcake for my cupcake. :)

Magnolia now goes and stands under her chair when she wants to eat and does the sign for "eat." She must have been so hungry because she loved her spaghetti and wanted to kiss me when she was eating it...she was so happy!
Today Magnolia said "baby" clear as a bell. She's also saying "hi" but they way she says it is so cute, like she's SO excited to see you. The other day we were playing in her room and, as usual, her books are all over the floor. I started to recite one of the stories and she turned and looked for the book I was reciting and brought it to me. I was so surprised that I did anther book and she brought me that book and this went for quite some time. I just couldn't believe it! She's learning so quickly. She's really amazing me every single day.

It snowed all day long. I have no idea how much we got. We've had snow on the ground since the beginning of December so it really doesn't even matter anymore. I have to say that I love the days we get fresh snow. I rush to the grocery the day before and then hunker down as if we're going to be snowed in for days. Magnolia and I had a very cozy day in the house. We hung out in the sewing room, George came home for lunch, I practiced with the new camera, and we went outside for a sled ride and to collect the mail. This weekend it's barely going to be above zero.
Magnolia now says "Daddeeee" instead of "Daaaa." She also says "hi" and the only time she puts two words together is when she sees her daddy..."hi daddeeeee." It's awfully cute.

Sophia has gotten so big! Cousins sharing breakfast.
We went to Wild Air on Sunday.
Magnolia slept the whole time but woke up the last minute so we quickly went down the slide together.
I wish I had gotten better pictures but sometimes it's too hard to find the camera in time for these wild and crazy little girls. Below Lilah playing the piano as Magnolia looks on.
Magnolia got her hair cut by Aunt Mary this weekend. It looks so cute, it's almost all one length now. I'll have to post more pictures soon!

While George started a fire, I pulled her in the sled. It was warm and the snow was melting fast! Napping with daddy.
I think she remembers the house, she ran around like crazy and had a blast.
I set her up on this chair so she could sit at the desk with daddy.
She will sit and look through books like this forever.
On our way home we stopped at Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant for lunch. It's always a fun and cozy stop. In the summer goats graze on the grass roof. :)
I can't believe she willingly kissed him!
Ah, what a wonderful and relaxing weekend. No running water meant no cooking. Eating out was a real treat and we had fun chatting with the locals. It's actually our favorite time to be up there. If there's more snow we'll head back up for some sledding on the sand dunes and we are also hoping to put in new floors so we may be back up sooner than later...
