Bedtime Conversations with CKW

Last night while Daddy was putting C to bed.

Daddy: "How did a daddy like me get to have a piper (nickname) like you for a little girl?"

C: "My goodness Daddy that is a hard one. Well, God choosed to put me in (insert my full name) tummy so I could be born and you could be my daddy."

Brrrr....It's Cold Outside

It's a chilly 0 degrees outside right now with a nice layer of snow on the ground. My plans for the day are to try and avoid going outside at all costs. We went to church last night and I think I have dh convinced to go the grocery store. I have my coffee in hand and my slipper socks on. We have some school projects to work on, Christmas thank yous to write, a meal to cook for a friend on bedrest, and some Girl Scout cookies to sort. Two little girlfriends are coming here to night for a special sleepover (no school tomorrow) and we are going over to our neighbors/friends to watch some football later on this afternoon (so I guess I will have to go out once!). A perfect frigid, winter day!

Stay warm!

The King of Hearts

Every year my children's elementary school puts on wonderful plays and musicals. This year they are doing Alice and Wonderland. The musical was open to any 4th and 5th graders who wanted to particpate, with a few lottery slots for 3rd graders. It is a very popular activity at our school with lots of interest from both boys and girls. JJW is in 5th grade and this is his last year at our wonderful elementary school. He has participated before in the plays/musicals as part of the chorus, but has never tried out for a part. Well this year he tried out for a speaking role. Yesterday he found out that he was cast as the King of Hearts! I am so proud of him for trying out, something not completely in his comfort zone. I know he will enjoy it.

So, JJW, we can't wait to see you in the musical. Break a leg!
