Daddy-Daughter Date Night

Greg took several very short clips of Maddie dancing. I must say this one is quite tame compared to some. He claims no one asked if she was in the special classes. I was surprised. =)
Seriously though, there is something very precious about the little 'princesses' getting dressed up and going out with their daddy's.

This is Laila's FIRST attempt at dress-ups. She has Maddie's Illini skirt over her head.

This was funny...Grayson was LOVing having mittens on. He wore them all afternoon.

Laila's Weakness



We were going down the cereal aisle at Walmart the other day and Laila started shrieking. It's getting quite easy to figure out what they are saying. She had spotted Reese Puffs (which we had bought ONE other time and shared with the babies)
Indeed-when there are Reese Puffs in the house...she won't eat any other cereal. I have to take her to the cereal cabinet and SHOW her when they are gone.

Snow day # 2

I don't know what time they announced there was no school for district 118, but I put Maddie to bed and set her alarm as usual.
About 10pm I turned the tv on and saw there was no school, so I crept upstairs, turned off her alarm and left her this note...hoping to get an extra 20 minutes of sleep in the morning...


"Thanks for the note. Wow-wee! No school!"

So big that she can read and write. : )

Maddie's Fat Lip

On one of the freakish warm days during Christmas break Maddie was able to go outside and play with some of the neighborhood kids. She came inside just like this and told us that Mackenzie had kicked her in the face. Well, the real story is that she got too close to the swing set and indeed got kicked in the kisser.
She wanted pictures and a blog post out if it. : )

Laila's Bell







Laila is quite funny about scavenging for items and claiming them. You never know exactly what it will be. On Christmas it was this doorbell (like the kind you hang on the doorknob). For a 14 month old with a short attention span, she stays surprising loyal to the item once it is claimed.
