We braved the roads (which were just slushy) this morning to venture to Granna and Granddaddy's house. They have the perfect backyard for sledding and everywhere around our house is very flat. They even had sleds from when Mommy and Uncle Brian were kids! We just had to take advantage of today for AK's first sledding experience... who knows when we will get a decent snow here again? Anna Kate was really excited about "sliding" down the hill. She was so brave that she even went by her self after the first time with daddy. She loved it, and here is the evidence... :o)

I know, I know. Two posts in one day is shocking, right?
I did not get any great pictures of the process, because AK insisted that she sit in my lap while getting her hair cut. And yes... I bribed her to sit still with candy. :)
It cracks me up how Kimberly's kids are always perfect posers for pictures. Mine on the other hand looks everywhere but the camera in most cases.

In the past few weeks, Anna Kate has had some really fun experiences! Here is a little peek into what she's been up to. By the way I am typing this mostly with one hand, because my sweet girl is insisting on sitting in my lap. The wording may be short and sweet. :)
On a FREEZING day in January, the Hamptons invited us to join them at the bowling alley. This would be both Reed and Anna Kate's first time bowling. They had a blast!
Quick funny story... About two weeks before we got the bed for her, she was playing in my room and climbed up on my and Chris' bed. She very dramatically plopped down -head on the pillow- and sighed loudly. I asked her what was wrong, and she said, "Oh... Anna Kate just NEEDS a big girl bed SO BAD, Mommy!" Like she had been waiting her entire life.
After a long weeks of really cold weather, we enjoyed a nice break of weather in the 50's for a few days. On MLK day Granna and Uncle Brian joined us at the park for a picnic and playing. Anna Kate had a blast playing outside! It had been awhile!
