Well, when winter gets long, we need to get creative with our indoor surroundings :) In the first few pictures, Lilly helped me make play-doh in her favorite color-blue. In the next pic, she's with her cousins Elijah and Evan as they came over for a playdate. The next few pics show Lilly doing some of her favorite things; playing on her computer and riding the train while wearing Daddy's hat. The last few pictures show her being giggly with Daddy and "cutting" mama's hair. BTW, we have no idea where she picked this up, since she's never seen anyone's hair get cut ?!?!?
In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we decorated some yummy cookies! Everything is nice, clean and orderly in the first picture (just the way I like it) and progressively gets messier by the end (the way Lilly likes it.) She had fun picking out "white" or "brown" frosting and deciding which sprinkles to put on. She also had great restraint when it came to choosing between decorating another cookie or eating a cookie-I think she decorated 4 cookies before caving and deciding to eat one!
So, it was yet another cold day here in MN. We decided to head out to Edinborough Park to escape the cold and give Lilly some much-needed playtime. Unfortunately, everyone else had the same idea! Despite the large volume of people, we did manage to have a good time. As you can see, Lilly enjoyed time with Daddy on the slides, in a scooter chair and organizing colored cones (too bad the other kids kept "screwing up" her cones :)
