Handy Emmy

Emersyn loves a good bracelet, purse or pair of shoes
It was really funny watching her get into her brother's toy tools/chest.

Logan is 5 today

I say this with every birthday that rolls around but.....
Our Logan is 5 TODAY!!
Through the years....

It is amazing to think that Logan was Emersyn's age when we first moved here to South Carolina. Now, he is in the 4 year Kindergarten program at the elementary school. He LOVES school! He and Emersyn are the best of friends. Until she starts sitting on him while he is playing games.
Logan is just a sweet, kind, loving, smart, patient little boy and we love him SO much!

Happy Birthday baby boy!

Our baby girl cracks us up!

Ever since the song "So Hard" by Rhianna started playing on the radio

Emersyn has had to sing it HER way.

That's our girl!

Once you watch, you will understand.

Twenty-three the number of snowmen we counted in our neighborhood!
Saturday afternoon my girl's and I headed off to shop.
(What else is new, right?)
As we started driving through the neighborhood
we realized how many snowmen had been built.
Some were really creative too!
So, we went back to the house for Lunden's camera.
We thought it would be fun to snap some photos of all the frozen fun...

{we couldn't leave ours out}

{The dirty cowboy}

{The freaky princess}

{the dead snowman}

{too big for your hat snowman}

{The Home Depot snowman}

{The leaning tower of snow/man}

The snow storm we had sure made Valentines weekend memorable!
I hope everyone felt loved!

frozen children and snowmen

Our snow day continues........

While I was getting ready to head out for the afternoon
the kids ( all of them) were outside playing in the snow
and building snowmen.
The problem is...
We don't own any real snow attire.
The kids do have some nice gloves and boots
in which we got up at my parent's place
during the last snow storm we experienced.
I was a little worried about them having frozen fingers
I decided to keep my mouth shut and let them play!!!

{Carsen couldnt resist}

{Emmy and her pals}

{It's so bright}

{much happier with his good gloves on}

{The kids made a snow couple}

I have another cute post coming....


The morning after

We're kinda stuck until it melts some......
No snowplows in sight. We don't even own a snow shovel.
I don't think they sell them around here!!

Baby shower, mall and movies later!

South Carolina "Blizzard" of 2010 {Video}

We have been under a winter storm warning all day...
kid's all got out an hour early from school...
It's snowing!
It's seriously the first MAJOR snowfall we have had since we have lived here.
It snowed the night before Emersyn was born, For an hour. And it didn't stick.
It's still coming down!

{first started snowing..4:30 pm }

{5:30 pm}

{6:45 pm}
Hey it's South's NEWS worthy around here!
it's supposed to continue snowing until 2 am.
I am sure I will be adding more video tomorrow morning!

One step closer..... a diaper free world!

{Emmy on her potty chair}

Miss Emersyn continues to potty train and wear her princess and Dora pull ups.
She woke up mostly dry, this morning and she went right to her potty chair
to do her "business".
I have potty trained 5 kiddos seems the average age is 3
but she just turned two last month so,....
I think we are ahead of the curve.

I can't wait to buy her all kinds of cute panties!

A new fad

I thought I would add a video news clip that really does help to understand what these
are if you haven't heard of them before.

Carsen came home with a  Silly bandz  last week. His friend gave him one.
 It was the first time I had heard of them. He came home with more daily. 
 My two high school students said that many of the kids have these on their wrists at school.
I was like " wierd, ok "....
So, this week, I finally decided that we would go looking for them.
 They are hard to find but I did find a bunch!
  For some reason, they are all the rage around here.
Are they popular where you live?

A darling preview of whats to come

Oh the benefit of being a Jane...

Since I am so excited for you to see the new Hammond Bay collection,....

 here is a little preview!
Also, keep an eye out for a "Matilda Jane Wish List" to appear on our site once the spring line shows up early next week.
It will allow my guests to add items to their "wish list" and print so that they can bring them to my show!
 How is that for being able to customize your own catalog with your favorites?!
 This new feature will help you pre-shop and know exactly what to look for!
My trunk show will be at my home
 February 23rd @ 10:00 am.
We are going to have some fun!
