Rockin to the 50′s

During this February break from school we signed Dagny up for Ice Skating Camp. What made it so much more fun was that her good friend, Mara, was also joining in on the fun. Camp was a four day event with a little performance on the last day that they worked on during the week. Unfortunately, Dagny had to miss a day because of the flu. But, I think she still rocked it!

Here is my little trooper.

Enjoy her very first ice skating performance.


For A Good Cause

Dear Friends and Family:

Please take some time and follow the link to Dagny’s Girl Scout page.

Her troop is selling nuts, candy, and magazine subscriptions to help her troop earn money for their annual troop activities. It will also help the council fund girl programs, maintain camps, provide adult training and provide financial aid to girls.

Thank you in advance for your support.


ZooBoo 2012

We met up with our friend, Jessica, and her son, Mason, for our annual ZooBoo outing. The weather was perfect. It’s was warm and with a chance of rain, which equals to no crowd. Win, win for all.

Dagny wanted to be a Doctor this year for Halloween. (Currently, she wants to be a doctor when she grows up. )

I just love this photo of her checking the lion’s (Chester) breathing.

She’s gotten so big.

I still can’t believe I am this little girl’s mother. I am the luckiest person in the world.  She is truly my world!

Our happy little doctor


Doodle Bugs Class of 2012

Friday night Dagny had her Pre-K  graduation from Doodle Bugs.  It was a bitter sweet event. Witnessing how much all the kids have grown in the past couple of years was pretty amazing. But, also made for a sad moment knowing that many of the kids wouldn’t see each other again.  Everyone was on their own paths moving on to their own elementary school. We (the parents) promised to stay in touch and I am sure some of us will, but life is going to get busy and realistically this was the end to some friendships.

It was truly a wonderful event were all the kids did a wonderful job. I am so proud of all of them, especially the long brown hair girl in the center.

We are so proud of you Little Miss D.

Love Mommy and Daddy!

The graduate, Miss Dagny!

Best friends, Dagny and Maggie.

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.
