Why? Because I Said So!

Lucy is in the "why?" stage right now. I do not remember this happening so soon. I thought it wasn't until at least 2 1/2. Oy. Every time I say something to Lucy she answers with, "Why?" So, I answer that question and she wants to know why again. It really could go on and on, so when I get tired I just say because and that answer seems satisfactory. Go figure...

Lucy Kisses...You've Gotta Earn Them

Mommy: Lucy, can I have a kiss please?
Lucy: Cry Mommy.
Mommy - Pretends to pout and cry.
Lucy - Gives Mommy a much coveted kiss.
Lucy: You don't have to cry anymore, Mommy.

Snow in El Dorado Hills!

On Friday the 13th I woke up in the wee hours of the morning and forced the dog to go outside and pee. She wouldn't go alone, so I dragged myself (barefoot) out with her and got rained on. It was freezing and I snuggled back into bed and woke up really late! But, I woke up to this beautiful white goodness...what a shock...

We don't get snow much at our house, so it was fun to watch it fall (pretty heavily) and then get up and go play in the inch or two that we had. Lucy had never really played in the snow before. We had taken her when she was just one, but she didn't really "get" it. She got it this time! Both kids were excited to sled down a hill in our yard, made snow angels, and even tasted the snow. It was a great morning!

The snow only stayed for a few hours, but what a great memory!

Lucy Celebrates Two

Happy 2nd Birthday Lucy Jane!
For Lucy's birthday we got her a brand new kitchen. Jenn picked the kids up from Grandpa's house and took them to frozen yogurt. All the while, Zach was at home setting up the kitchen so it would be ready to surprise the Goose when we got home. She was so excited to see her present! She ran right in and made some hot dogs, hamburgers, and tea.

Mommy Loves Lucy SO Much!

Lucy's Party Friends!

What a Fancy Party Coat! She Just HAD to Try Everything On

Lucy had a really good time (despite being sick) celebrating her birthday with her family and friends. Even though she did have to share the opening of her presents with her older brother and her cousin. We still can't believe Lucy is two...even though we have the presents and left over cake to prove it.
