Dolly had a pink tutu on on too. I forgot.

On a freezing day last week, my sweet sick princess decided to venture outside. She hung out on the deck and had a snack as if it was summer. Oh, and she was wearing a hat and boots that are to be hand-me-downs and her fairy costume from Gram. She's a keeper.

K got a little kit called Pop Bottle Science for Christmas (thanks Auntie and Uncle!) and we just broke it out a few weeks ago. He loves it. In fact we did the same exact experiment with Mom and Dad on 2 different days, that's how fun it was. There are many more experiments in the book- looking forward to trying out another one!

For lack of a better idea it was a flower birthday party. We had a few cupcake and princess details thrown in too.
The favorite presents included a pink vacuum, a dolly, a great bike, a Dora umbrella and some dress up things and much more.
Flower basket cake by Uncle GSpring flowers and a cakepop garden
And a few mini cupcake cakebites. They turned out very cute and were pretty easy, I might try that again.
And a few decorations

I spent last week in a hotel at a work conference*. My wonderful hubby took vacation for the week to run the show back home**. The first day I was away, yes the first of 6, I got an email with this in it:
Her explanation was "I want to be a soldier" I don't even know what that means. Or how she even would come up with that phrase. (brothers) But I do know R read us a Robert Munsch book the week before I left called Purple, Green and Yellow. It was about a girl who colours all over herself with super-indelible-never-come-off-till-you're-dead-or-maybe-even-later markers. Hmmm. Thanks a lot Mr. Munch.
But still she is so cute, who could resist that face?
*I was expecting the break from mothering to be better than it was. I was ready for the cuddles and stories after about 2.5 days. The upside is that I am still glad to be back being their mother, that effect has yet to wear off. It's nice to feel renewed in your everyday life sometimes.
**Despite the above incident the kids were fine with Daddy and I really didn't worry about them at all.
