Why Grandma's are Great

A Mom or Dad might get sick of hearing you say "read book" but not a Grandma.
A Mom or Dad might tell you to "tone it down" but not a Grandma.
A Mom or Dad might wait until you go to bed to get out the ice cream but not a Grandma.
A Mom or Dad might tell you "you can help next time" but not a Grandma.
A Mom or Dad might tell you not to pick your nose but not a Grandma!

Abby is lucky to have such wonderful Grandma's. (And her Mom and Dad are too!)

Abby Goes Sledding

We finally took Abby sledding this winter. We took her "sledding" last year, but she wasn't too thrilled about it. It probably didn't help that I dumped her off the sled into some deep, cold snow. But anyway, she seems to have recovered or forgotten, because she enjoyed it more this year.

The snow was less than spectacular--it was not fresh, and had been through a warm day, so had the consistency of cement. But hey, I'd rather she go too slow than too fast at this point.

Abby is a big fan of swinging. Always has been.

This last time we went swinging she discovered that if you swing while looking up at the sky, and then bring your head suddenly back to a normal position, you get dizzy.

Snow Queen

Just some artsy and cute winter pictures of Abby.

A Post From Alex

Alex occasionally (very occasionally) takes a picture or two. When he gets a good one, he shows me, and then I put it on facebook or our blog and take credit for it. But these ones are so good that I just can't bring myself to steal the credit.

P.S. I'll still take credit for sharing them though :)

Me and My Little Girl

That's right, she's no longer a baby.
