We Have Truffula Trees!

I painted Georgia's playroom months ago, and it has taken me this long to finally figure out what to do with it beyond just paint.

Welcome the world of Dr. Seuss... and we're starting with truffula trees from "The Lorax."

NC Snow!!!

We've lived here in our new home in North Carolina for more than a year and a half now, and we finally just had our first snowfall! Yay! Now, granted, this is a southern snowfall, so the hype was much more than the snow amount. Having lived in Omaha, NE, the five years previous to this, I had almost forgotten how fleeting snow here can be.

But we got snow... all 1/4 of an inch of it! And Georgia loved every little icy snowflake.

Of course, she and her daddy had to conspire against me to make sure I was hit with my fair share of snowballs...

And even though there wasn't much snow there, we made snow angels.

It was a beautiful day...

... finished off by a perfect cup of hot chocolate just before the sun melted away all the snow around noon.



Bath Time

Bath time with Georgia is not typically my time in the house. Monday through Friday, I am heading back to work at the end of my dinner break as Georgia climbs into the tub, so it's my hubby who supervises. And while bath time usually feels more like a chore, tonight I was reminded of the magic you can find when a little one is in a vessel full of water.

While Georgia bathed tonight, I was lured in by the sounds of laughter and splashing behind the closed door. Bubbles were flying and smiles were abundant. How my little one loves the water!

It just took a moment to remind how magical even the most mundane things can be when there's a child in the mix.
