Beautiful busy days

After last weeks' frigid cold temperatures, we have enjoyed above zero temps for the last 5 days or so.  It's been just beautiful with gorgeous sunlight and stunning sunsets.  Today is is 9 degrees and sunny

We had these beautiful ice crystals floating in the air that sparkled in the sun.

We've had lots of snow with the warmer temperatures, so I'm working on the kids' shoveling skills.

I'm trying desperately to keep a close eye this adorable little monster, but she just gets into everything.  Yesterday, I had to change her outfit 4 times because she got in the toilet and played in the water (SO GROSS!).  On a good note, I'm super attentive to the cleanliness of the bathrooms these days.

  The other day she was happily sitting at the island with some crayons and I looked up to realize that she'd gotten on top of the counter and into the cookie container and eaten about 6 cookies...there was only one left.  Good grief.

The back of her hair shows her personality well, haha.

I received these books in the mail today.  I bought the set for a great price from Ebay, so the spines don't match, but that's part of their charm for me.  I love Anne and read this series when I was a teen, but this post from Whitney at Life Alaskan Style convinced me to re-read them and can't wait to get going.

I haven't ever read the Emily series, so I'm looking forward to that.  
  What have you been up to?


  1. I just have to comment that I have never read Anne of Green Gables but bought it a while back. I have it on my list of books to read this Spring. I like to match my books with the seasons if at all possible and I meant to get to it last Spring, but it didn't happen. So this year for sure! Enjoy!

  2. The antics of your little girl - and her hair - crack me up! Guess it's easy for me to laugh when I'm waaay past the stage of little ones. :-)

    I have the same blue bird as the one on top of your books!
