And We're Finished!

A while ago I blogged about how I was teaching Macy to read using "Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons", and we did number 100 today! Hooray! Macy was so excited to be done. After every one's nap we are going to go to Baskin Robbins to celebrate!

Here is a video of Macy reading the last story. During each lesson, she reads the story twice, so she read it once and then I video taped her reading it the 2nd time.

(Alright, I have never put a video on the blog and don't know how, but click here and hopefully that will take you to it. And I took the video with my phone, so the quality isn't the greatest.)

Way to go Macy!

Snow Day!

It has been snowing all day here in the DFW area! We made snow ice cream for the first time ever which the kids really enjoyed and Seth took them out in the front to play and to make a snow men. They are back out in the front right now throwing snowballs as I type this.

A few pictures from our snow day:

Emma enjoyed watching the snow through the window:

Happy Birthday Charlie-Only over a month late!

At Christmas while we were visiting my parents, we celebrated Charlie's 3rd birthday! He was happy to celebrate it with his grandparents, great-parents, aunt and uncle and cousins. He is getting to be so big! I have even noticed he is getting taller than boys who are over a year older than him. He is definitely still all boy, loves sports, super-heroes, and jumping from things.
For some reason I didn't take a ton of pictures and they aren't great, but here they are:

Happy Belated Birthday Charlie! We love you.
