“Sledding pictures from February break”
Generated by Facebook Photo Fetcher 2
Ella and Abby enjoyed their first “real” sledding experience today. I’ve pulled them around in the yard and they’ve played on the huge snow plow hills at our house but today was our first visit to a sledding hill. They loved it!
Afterwards Abby asked if we could go again tomorrow and she is the one who ended up with a sledding injury. She scraped her check on the icy snow when she fell getting off on her second run. But she didn’t want me to look at it, she wanted to keep sledding. We went to the hill across the street from penfield wegmans. It was nice because there was a smaller and bigger side to the hill. After going down once with me Ella was ready to go by herself on the big side. I went down with Abby on the big side and she went on her own on the smaller side. She probably would have been fine on the big side too but we discovered the saucer sleds were best and we only had two of those so I made Abby share hers. 🙂
We were having too much fun today for mommy to take pictures. Guess we will have to go back again sometime …
Abby is excited to finally be 4. We had her friends/family party on the 2nd and she was excited to get another little party tonight. Daddy made Mickey mouse pancakes and mommy cut up strawberries to turn them into Minnie mouse pancakes. She also got to go to target and pick out a toy earlier today. She picked a Barbie tent. Which weirdly enough was more involved than putting up a real tent. I put my engineering degree to good use today. 🙂
Abby is enjoying her preschool playdates class at the rec center and is looking forward to “real” preschool next year. She loves to read books, play Barbie, and dance. She wears a tshirt and a tutu skirt almost everyday.She has learned how to really annoy her older sister by copying everything she does. Abby is usually pretty quiet and laid back but had officially reached the silly 4 year old phase where she will say the craziest things and just stay laughing.
Here she is with her new Barbie tent
And the cake she helped decorate, she really likes sprinkles
And the photo bombs …
Abby had been getting a lot of use out of the lab set she got for her birthday. We’ve only done 1 experiment so far because she has such fun mixing up colored water, she wants to do that one every day.
Cousin Anya got the same set for her birthday and Abby thought it looked cool so she asked for one too.
Cha cha cha
Ella chose to have “cha cha chas” in her birthday song at school Friday afternoon.
And here she is with her cookie dough ice cream cake she wanted for her actual birthday on Saturday.
It’s hard to believe my baby is 7 and in first grade. She still likes school and math is favorite subject. She has been going to speech twice a week at school for a little bit of a lisp. We’re actually not super worried about it but the school offered it, we’d rather work on it now then have problems later on, and it gives her something else to work on at school. She has told us that school is kind of boring sometimes because they keep doing the same thing. Ahh, welcome to the real world. 🙂
Ella still likes to work on art projects at home and is getting into clothes and fashion. In fact for her birthday we took her shopping for a new outfit as her birthday present. Some off her clothing ocd seems to be resolving, she actually wore socks with “strings” in them this week.
Ella really loves to play with her baby sister Mia and is always saying “she’s so adorable”. It is more of a love/hate relationship playing with Abby because Abby likes to copy her big sister. I’m did the fact that it annoys Ella does not factor into why she does it either. 😉
