Little Tenderheart

Brian took Addie on a little outing to pick up coffee yesterday and relayed this story to me. Addie is usually very close mouthed about school so it was wonderful to hear about it, especially such a sweet story.

There are two girls in Addie's class that are best friends and do everything together. One of them was sick so she wasn't at school. The other girl was then sad and playing by herself. Addie said that she went over to her and said she would be her friend and play with her. In Addie's own words, "My heart said she needed a friend."

And in Edith land...

Now that Edith has realized that everyone has eyes, heads, arms, etc. she is moving on to gender. She loves to tell me about whether everyone she knows is a girl or a boy. Often times this comes with skipping. To Brian, "you're a boy, you're a boy!" Skip Skip Skip. She is also working on other opposites as well.

Holiday Fun

Christmas Day Smiles. Look at those stockings almost as big as the girls!

Yesterday we completed our big drive back from Michigan. Leaving at about 5:30 am and arriving home at a little before 3:00 am we were quite tired. We got some rest and are feeling refreshed after a day of laziness. The kids were great passengers for the most part and Brian said the portable DVD player we gave them for Christmas was the best present ever.

We had a wonderful time visiting Brian's family. We even got to sneak in an evening out with one of Brian's high school friends. All the cousins had a blast together.
Events included the train festival, sledding, taking a 5 minute walk to the beach on New Years day and lots of game playing. Lots of fun. We did stop at Niagara Falls on the drive back so the girls could walk around and enjoy the falls.
