All week people have been antsy because of our predicted snow fall. All over the south people have been getting ready. The schools called a snow day (on Sunday) for both Tuesday and Wednesday. The power company sent out emails letting us know that they had extra technicians on duty to ensure no one out of power. The grocery store on Monday was super jam packed, and every stall at the gas station was in high demand. Tuesday Lee got to work and was sent home for a day and a half so everyone could be safe.
Well, we did get some rain. And it is cold enough for form icicles on the plants. But we had to make our own snow, and enjoy a full week day of Daddy being home.

My little girl is now 4 years old, graduates from her car seat, goes to primary and is getting bigger and more beautiful each day.
To celebrate, I made her a princess cake. We did a treasure hunt, opened presents, cake and ice cream. It was a fun day.
The best part is the sparkler candles. They didn’t say they would re-light, I just wanted them to sparkle.
As a side note, my cake decorating skills are improving. For Kings Day, Lee gave me a cake decorating kit, I watched some videos and made my own fondant icing.
It’s a far cry from her first birthday when I hoped to make a butterfly, but it came out more like a scary bat.

Well, he was the only one in nursery that still had long wavy locks, so I decided that I was going to give it a try in buzzing it off. I used the longest guard I had, but it is still pretty short.
So, the video really is a full minute and doesn’t show too much, but it seemed worth capturing.

On December 21st, Darian Oliver Johnson turned two years old!
We brought out a dozen balloons and tried to hand them to him. He refused and kept insisting “Want mine. Want one mine” He wanted HIS ONE balloon, not a whole bouquet. We finally convinced him that two was an acceptable compromise.

Gavin is our big 4 month old baby boy. This is the best age, I am positively sure. Last week he clocked in at 17 lbs 2 oz (84th percentile), got 4 month shots and broke through both his bottom front teeth.
He is doing lots of fun things:
Sitting up with support
Playing with Daddy
There has been lots happening this month, so hopefully I will at least get pictures up in the next few days.
