Good Day, Sunshine

We all went outside yesterday.  Oh, the power of a little sunshine and warmth after shivering in our woolies for so long!


Don't you love Ellerie's hat?  A gift from Nana Sue by Adrienne Kinsella at Etsy.  We loved this one, of course, because of our little Birdie, but she's got some beautiful things to check out.  I'm so glad it is going to fit her for a couple of years.  This one is a keeper, for sure.  


Tate started out with mismatched mittens and rainboots, as it wasn't quite 50 degrees...


.... but the sun brings out happy play, laughter...


.....and, yeah.......naked feet.


Today is Calvin's 6th B-day!  I sent him off to school this morning with a bag full of gummy fruit snacks (thanks Sherrie!) and his crown.  He told me he loved it, which is just enough to melt my heart, even if he never touches it again after today.  We've got some special things planned for tonight.....anyone see Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium?.... and the party is tomorrow, so pics of that next week probably.  It's practically tropical here for march, so hopefully we'll all get out and enjoy it.

HEY! love everything - especially that you are all better *) hope Cal's b-day was fantastic - seems like he's been around for more than 6 years doesn't it?

The hat is making me swoon! So adorable. Your kids have well adorned heads lately--the crown is fantastic too!

(PS-I echo your thoughts on spring. The flowers are so lovely, but it started snowing this morning! Brrrr...)
