You and Me

This song by the Dave Matthews Band is very fitting for Dave and I and the sweet, little family that we have created.  Before you click on the link, make sure that the playlist at the bottom of our blog is paused and that your speakers are turned on.  

And just because no blog post is complete without some pictures from our day:

"Oh and when the kids are old enough
We're going to teach them to fly. 
You and me together,
We could do anything, baby."
-Dave Matthews Band

Sleep well, dear friends. 
We'll see you tomorrow.

The morning started out snowy and grey so the girls and I decided to head to the Southborough Public Library (our new favorite place!) for the once a month Saturday Story Hour.  It seemed like a good way to spend a cold, grey morning so off we went. Even better our friends, Joe, Maggie and Cate showed up for story hour too  What fun!

Miss Jen, one of the fabulous children's librarians, lead the story hour whose theme is alphabet adventure.  The letter of the day was B and she talked about the sound it makes, and words that begin with B.  She read stories that were about the letter B and then sent the children on an alphabet safari, handing each child a lower case letter and having them find its upper case match that had been taped around the story hour area.  Fabulous!  
Now, if only I could have gotten Emma to stop exerting her two year oldness and sit down it would have been even better!  

We found some new books, and a couple of movies too, checked out and headed out the door to discover that the sky was beautifully blue and the sun was shinning! And that could mean there was only one thing to be done once we got home...

The sky may have only been blue for a little bit, but it was wonderful to be able to spend some time outside and check out the puddles.
Enjoy the rest of the day, friends. 
We'll see you tomorrow.

Yesterday, Grace asked to make cupcakes.  Of course, she asks this around dinner time, and of course we don't have any ingredients to make cake or frosting right then. I told her I would ask David to pick up some  cake mix and frosting and we'd make them today.  Which is exactly what happened and exactly what we did. 

It was the perfect way to start our day!  
And the day only got better from there. 
We had a playdate (and lunch!) with our friends Emily, Maggie and Cate. 
Then we had dinner with our friends Sade, Paul and Tayo. 
It was a fabulous Friday!
Sleep well, dear friends. 
We'll see you tomorrow.

Have a great night, friends. 
We'll see you tomorrow.

A Snowman. Finally!

We woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland this morning.  For as much as we are super ready for spring to arrive, this was a lovely winter treat to wake up to today.  We don't usually motivate this early, but since I had heard that rainy/slushy weather was on its way we had to get out and build our snowman before we lost out on some really good packing snow.

The girls and I ate, got suited up, headed out and quickly got to work.

Here is where we realized we'd used the buttons for the eyes. 

It was the perfect way to start our day!
Have a wonderful day, friends. 
We'll see you tomorrow.
