Dance class

The girls are taking a weekly jazz/tap/ballet class at the Y. It's pretty much the cutest thing ever.

Going for a walk

Aaron, Ella, and Ella's bunny took advantage of yesterday's unseasonably high temperatures to go for a walk (and send me silly pictures).

Let it snow?

Aaron took this picture of the girls a few days ago. They were going to play outside after Maisie was done with school. As you can see, they're both ready for snow... hats, snowpants, boots, and mittens all ready to go! Unfortunately, Mother Nature's not cooperating. I don't know where they found that sad little patch of snow, but it's almost certainly gone by now- it's been in the 40s the last few days.

I'm too much a life-long Minnesotan to enjoy this. Sure, it's nice not to have to worry about snow emergencies and sub-zero temps, but 40s? In January?? It's just not right. If I wanted a rainy, brown winter, I'd move to Portland. As it is, we haven't been able to go sledding once, and the only ice skating we've done was indoors. Outrageous!

Bring on the snow!

Pizza night!

Nobody was up for cooking tonight, so we went to our favorite family-friendly neighborhood pizza place, Jakeeno's.

Coffee break!

Aaron had a dentist appointment this morning (no cavities! Good job honey!). Our dentist's office is right across the street from my office, so I got to hang out with Ella while he was at his appointment. We went to the Barnes & Noble for a snack.

It was a really nice break from my workday... I wish I could meet up with her for a coffee every day!

Girl Team!

The girls refer to themselves & me as the "girl team." Today they requested a girl team adventure. Okay!

We went to the zoo! It was a lot of fun. Nothing really special - just the three of us hanging out and having a good time. We toured the trails, hit the gift shop, and rode the monorail.

it was really, really great. :)
