Not much to report

Ollie never gets any air time so I thought I'd let him have center stage.

I seriously think I need to make these tomorrow. Seriously, have you ever heard of anything so amazing?

We (the girls and I) will be headed to NY for Easter and spring break next week.

We've all just been doing our thing.

Emma has been busy with school and activities. Nora has not been napping every day so it gives us more time to do things before we have to pick up Emma. Like run errands or go to a park. It's nice to have more freedom to get things done and not stress about bringing Nora with me to the store. She'll usually sit in a cart for a least 1/2 hour before I need to break out the i phone. Things get easier as she gets older.

We are trying to plan a trip with my brother and his family and my parents for Christmas. Somewhere warm and sunny with white beaches and turquoise water. Maybe to Turks and Caicos Islands. Anyone have a house that sleeps 11 for rent over Christmas?

I'll let you know how the french toast waffles turn out. Seriously!

Nora lost a tooth yesterday. I have no idea when, how or where. She went to school with all her teeth and came home without one. There was nothing that her teacher could think of that would cause her tooth to fall out. I hadn't noticed any loose teeth but she isn't so willing to let me look around in there for too long. It was a bottom tooth, not in the middle but one next to the middle. So not even a common first tooth to lose. So strange. She JUST turned four. Seems a bit early.

When we went to the dentist a few weeks ago, the one where they strapped her hands to her sides and velcroed her body in a big wrap to restrain her, there was no discussion of loose teeth. But then again, there wasn't much time to do much searching in there. Sooooo.... not sure what the heck happened. And I can't get a picture of it but I'll keep trying.

The tooth fairy didn't come since we don't have the tooth and Nora doesn't even know she lost one. Emma was wondering. Maybe for the next tooth.

Thanks for checking in

Only 2 more days until Alex gets home...phew.

Yo Gabba Gabba Mania

Nora is doing great. School is fun for her and she loves the bus. She is rocking her i Touch all day if we let her. But she is also into Yo Gabba Gabba! right now. She asks to watch it all the time so I got her a book, the cd and action figure of Brobie. She loves it. I have been looking for a stuffed animal or t shirt but apparently this stuff is hot right now and I can't find it anywhere.

Emma has been skiing and dancing and doing gymnastics so we have been busy as bees. She also had to do a report on a president, she got Abe Lincoln. It turned out very cute and she did a great job in her presentation.

Alex is in Japan for the week so hopefully I'll survive! Thanks for checking in!
