A day at the Ballpark!

Yesterday we decided to go to a NWA Natural's baseball game. It was a gorgeous day and we had a lot of fun. 

We weren't sure how Lucy would do. But as usual, she was a trooper. 

Sinker, Strike and no tears from anyone!  Shocking!!

This is about 3.5 hours past her nap time and she's still going strong!
And now she's out. 

We will go back in a few weeks with the girls' school and a few times this summer. Especially now that we know Lucy can handle it!

10 months

This crazy girl is 10 months old. 

She mastered crawling and then decided cruising looked more fun. Now she walks behind this little push toy. She says mama, dada, gaga (for Greta) and just learned the sign for "more". She has 4 teeth.
My little vampire. 

She's a giant girl-- off the charts in height and 80% in weight. She's 100% sweet as pie. We love her off the charts!!

Tooth Fairy

Margaret had a loose tooth and was complaining about it so we were waiting at the dr office and I asked if she wanted me to just pull it and she said yes. So I pulled it. And then it bled and bled and bled and she cried and cried and cried. She talked funny for 3 days afterward. But the tooth fairy came and left her some money and all is well. 


Basketball

Both girls are playing basketball this year and it's been fun watching them. This is Margaret's first time playing and she loves it. 

New Years Eve

We just laid low and went out to dinner  and ice cream with friends and checked out the retro arcade (Mark's favorite new place!) then came home for sparkling grape juice and bed!


And New Year's Day alway requires cornbread and black eyed peas!

Margaret's birthday

Since we had her party early in the month, we just went out to eat on her actual birthday. Mexican, as always, was her choice but our favorite place was closed for a private party. So we went to a different place and I had hoped they did the sombrero/whipped cream thing, too...
And luckily, they did!!

Caroline's choir

OCaroline was asked to join the U of A Children's Choir and had a Christmas/winter concert in mid December. 
This one did good for 3/4 of the show but needed to talk a little so daddy took her to the hall. 

As part of the choir, she was able to join Opera Fayetteville in the performance of The Little Prince. It was a big commitment (3-6 hours of practice a day) and it took up her whole Christmas break. I was very proud of her for not complaining and sticking to it. She did great!
Here she is with the "pilot". 
And with the Little Prince. 

I don't know how many 8 yr olds can say they have performed in an opera, but this one has!!
