Meet Elizabeth

Did you all know babies were like this?

Seriously. This girl will happily talk to herself for 10-20 minutes. She cries only when hungry, needing to burp, or right when she goes down to sleep.

I do believe I landed the sweetest girl on earth!
Hooray for Elizabeth!

35) What does mom love about you? I don't know, you tell me! (Where do I begin, sweetling?)

Then Anna began to ask ME questions, in a very serious manner.
The questions were tough:
What is your favorite baseball place?
What is your favorite hat?
What is your favorite eyebrow? (What?)
What is your favorite toy?

Pretty creative, hard-hitting questions, wouldn't you say?

How to survive a blizzard...

Ok, Ok. For those who have lived through a "real" blizzard I know this one only counts by Missouri standards. But if the news people can call it a blizzard, so can I.

So here are survival tips:

1)Look good while you smile for the camera!

2)Leave your shovel where you can find it. Notice it is buried up to the top of the shovel part!

3)Stay on your feet!

4)Keep track of your children!

5)Make paths so you can find your way back!

6)Basement camp outs will make the time go by faster!
