Happy Birthday, Kirsten!

Yes, it is another family birthday. Our Kirsten turns 22 today. I remember well when she was little like Harlee and just as stubborn. She is trying hard to be a good mommy, working just as hard at her job and trying to enjoy being young,.

Birthday Celebration!!

I think Harlee enjoyed opening presents. I think she has finally caught on. She loved her lamb and book from Auntie Cait. And the tent, books and puzzle from Nana and Grandpa. And a Cinderella baby doll from Aunt Deyanne.

Happy Birthday, Harlee

Our Harlee turns 2 today. Where have those 2 years flown??? Kirsten and the kids will be having dinner her tonight to celebrate.

A Little Cake, A Little Water.

Kirsten had a little swimming party at the hotel to celebrate Harlee's 2nd birthday (which is later this week)with their friends. Harlee loved getting in the pool with Kirsten and eating birthday cake with Tink on it.

So Cute

Harlee is so dang cute these days. I was watching Harlee and Nicholas for a while today. She was watching Noddy on Sprout TV. There was this elephant and a wind up monkey doing tricks. So she got out her ball and tried standing on it like the monkey. Then she saw the monkey juggling and that was the next thing she was trying. And telling me to smell these little candles I have. I can't tell you how much she makes me smile. I love that little toots.

A couple of new Layouts.

A couple of things I have been working for the last week or so. Finally finished.

Happy Birthday, Robyn

Today is the birthday of my good friend, Robyn. Wishing a very special day.
Lots of birthdays to celebrate in the next week for the Barrow Family.
I can hear the wind blowing out there---end of the warm streak. Yesterday we tied the record high of 57F. Now we plunge into the deep freeze with snow. Grrrr..... Especially since our drive is finally melted.

Off to Work

today and tomorrow. Pack my lunch every single day I go - at least then I have something yummy to eat. As you can see from the lunch bag --it is Julie's and Andrew's first anniversary---enjoy WDW.
Have Cait safely back in Tacoma--less traumatic train ride--only a couple of hours late.
Awfully quiet around the Barrow household with only me here now.
Have a good one.

The Countdown is On

for taking Caitlin back to the train in Shelby and her heading to school in Tacoma. Her train is to leave tomorrow. It has been a great visit and I will miss her so much. She is a lot like her dad and I guess that is why we get along so well. I have put my scrapbooking on hold, so I could just crash on the couch and spend time with her. Isn't that what is all about? Hopefully we can visit her for spring break in March.

The Word, NO,

has suddenly become very important to Harlee. She and Nicholas spent the afternoon with Cait and I. We had a tea party and she offered Nick a cup of tea. We played trains on the kitchen floor. Nana took new photos. And Harlee thought climbing on Nana was fun, especially when she jumped on me--Ouch. She was also perusing the pamphlets for her next cruise. And had Aunt Cait do her nails. Glad to be off today after having 2 busy days at work.
