There's a hole in Alayna's head!

Alayna has lost her first tooth. She lost it New Year's Eve. She drew this picture and wrote the story for her Kindergarten class's Tooth Journal.

Alayna without her tooth...

Snow! Take 2

Well, it has continued to snow. We've got a lot on the ground now. Pretty much everything was shut down this weekend, and we both stayed home on Monday.
Snow Angel 2.0: the snow was much better for angels today.
Snowman: Alayna was more interested in eating the snow than building a snowman. It wasn't really good enough snow for snowmen anyway. There was a layer of ice in the middle of all the snow.

There were a bunch of people sledding out in the street. Every once in a while someone would yell "car" and they would all move out of the way. After a little while a family strode up on some cross-country skis.

Arctic Blast 2008!!! least that what it's being called on the TV. It really has been quite the storm. We thought last Sunday was bad, and then it just didn't stop.

Church Pageant

The church pageant was almost cancelled this year because of the snow, but the show must go on. Some of the roles were reassigned, but it went pretty well. Alayna was a little angel.


It's actually been a year since I posted anything here?! OK. I guess now that I have internet and a good computer I don't have much excuse. Anyway, it is snowing here. Pretty hard, and it's really cold. We made it out to have some fun, though...

Snow Angel: You can see that there isn't really that much snow, about 1" this afternoon. But the whole city is shut down.
The slide still works in the snow:

Doesn't it look like a good day for swimming?

Rolling down the hill:
Evidently, this is how puppies eat snow. They push their heads through the snow and lick.

Sorrento Daycare Concert

Alayna's daycare center held a Christmas concert. It was absolutely adorable. They all sang really well.
