The Shortest, Longest Month.

Before Dagny came into our lives winter was usually very slow. We tended to be home bodies. That changed back in December 2008 when we came home with Dagny. From that moment on it was all about what we needed and wanted to do for our little girl. With every year that passes I see an increase in our social calender, or should I say, in Dagny’s calender and she’s only four.  I am not complaining at all, I am loving the fact that she is experiencing so many things.

For insistence, last Friday Dagny and I met up her friend, Samantha, and her mom at RIT for a hockey game. I am embarrassed to say that I’ve never been to one while attending RIT. I see that changing in the future.  We had so much fun!

Ten minutes into the game Dagny got the puck! It flew over the glass and was caught by someone behind us. The entire section started chanting, “Give it to the kid!, Give it to the kid!” He was nice enough to give it to us.  During intermission an official came over and gave the man another puck. GO RIT!

Valentine’s Day meant another project for me. I tend to overdue things, but I really enjoy this kind of stuff. Dagny and I headed out one night to Michaels to pick up some craft supplies. She is old enough now that I can discuss ideas with her and get some valid feedback. She’s growing up so fast. Sigh.

Here is what we came up with for her classmates.

For the boys, Super Heroes lollypops.

For the girls, Flower lollypops.

This is my favorite week of February. Emerson is here!

While Dagny had her skate lesson Emerson took to the ice too.

It snowed again…

… that puts a smile on Dagny.


We Are Still Here At Casa De Johnson

January pretty much went by in a blink of an eye and with no post from me. I really did have every intention of posting, but seriously one day it was the 1st and the next it was the 31st. With that said, I have tons of photos to share. There really is something to the saying, time flies when you’re having fun. BAM.

Winter shows itself once in awhile.

Here is Lily Girl enjoying the snow. Winter is her favorite season.

When it actually was winter-like-weather we try to take advantage and do winter-like activities, most notably sledding.

Dagny actually went down the hill all by herself.

Erika came for a two week visit during her break from college  Love my Erika!

Here are my two girls being silly. Love my girls!

One reason for my lack of posting is because we’ve been busy. Dagny is still in dance (ballet and tap) and she is really enjoying it.  This year she also started skating lessons. Craig is really enjoying the lessons with his little girl.

Dagny started swim lessons a few weeks back. Having a pool, we felt that formal training would be a good idea. And of course she loves it. Here she is with her BFF.

Dagny and her best friend, Samantha, have been hanging out a lot. They went to their first 3-D movie, The Beauty and the Beast.

And, here they are at Disney on Ice.

My mom and I went to the Eastman Theater to listen/see Itzhak Perlman. What that man can do with the violin is indescribable. Only thing I can compare it to is velvet to the ears.

We went to the Museum of Play to check out their new visiting exhibit, The Wizard of Oz.

Due to the less then stellar winter like conditions, Dagny has been able to ride her bike. She actually rode there and back to our local library. Before heading home, we got some books and stopped at the playground.

Dagny’s imagination has taken off big time. The girl can play for hours with her toys. She also loves to put shows on for us. Here she is putting on a TV show.  Sometime starting her or her stuff animals. I am really enjoying this stage.

Here she is as Super Dagny.

Her passion for drawing has also taken off. I just love the things she is able to draw now. Here is Mommy Bear. I think  she did a fantastic job!

What else? Oh, yes. We have I think a total of three tress on our property and when we had some really high winds one of our tress went down. In hindsight we were very lucky how it fell.

What’s one more photo of my pretty girl.
