American Girl!

Last weekend we did something I've been dreaming about for a LONG time. We went to the American Girl store! That was so much better than I ever thought. If it wasn't for the fact that it was so crowded I would possibly have gone crazy in there. Thank goodness for the crowd!
I was so tempted to buy a doll. But I really do want to wait til my girls are a little older, since they are so expensive. We did buy an outfit though...$30 thank you. So yes, I did go a little crazy!

Is it not just darling?

We ended up going to Target and got a knock off doll. My daughter is in love!

Doughnut Monday!

Every Monday Miss E brings her friend Miss A. home after preschool. I do grocery shopping before I pick them up and it's become a tradition to get them doughnuts. So every week it's exciting for them to see what color they will get.

My beautiful Hydrangea. Now let's see how long I can keep this one alive....

Easter decoration

In Norway we don't have Easter baskets. Instead we use eggs made out of carton. This egg was a gift from my mom. Can't wait to fill it up with chocolate and marzipan ( a must!).

Eggs hanging from pussy willow and branches is another Easter must.

These little bunnies are from TJMAXX. They're a favorite in this house. Looks like Easter chocolate...mmm...

Lazy Saturday!

Beautiful burst of color in a winter wonderland

Oh, what a lazy day! I just never woke up. Yesterday we woke up to a lot of snow! Everything was covered in white. Especially my daughters bike! It's been really nice outside lately and we have been working on my oldest biking skills (or lack there of)...Now we can go sledding instead.... I really hope it will melt fast. Anyways, today was freezing! I'm looking forward to go to bed, just a few more hours....

Princess party!

My one and only niece, C, turned 2 last weekend! We went to in-laws, and celebrated. The theme was Princess. Have you ever seen a cake like this? Pretty fancy. The party was a lot of fun and the girls dressed up.

C. was Tinkerbell and Miss E. was Jasmine.

C. got lots of great presents and this car was one of them. The kids didn't wait for all the parts to be put on before they took it for a spin.

These girls will have a lot of fun together!

New fabric!

I got some new fabric the other day from Hobby Lobby - it was so hard to choose. Anyways, I made a princess skirt for my baby (with tulle underskirt).

Then a fun dress for my oldest. It has a really cute vintage pattern.

Isn't this just so adorable?

Good morning!

Isn't my sleeping/awoken baby cute?

Another busy day awaiting me, but not before some coffee and lounging around time. Lately I've been really busy and I'm starting to get tierd. I only like to be a little busy....This weekend we're going to celebrate my niece's 2nd birthday and that should be fun. The theme is princess party. Miss E. is going to be princess Jasmine, and baby doesn't have a princess dress so I made her a princess skirt. I will post it later.

Another Sunday ar the Y

Last Sunday me and Miss E. went to the Y again. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine!

I used my "new" snowshoes and E. was on her skis.

We skated for a while. First E. used boxes for support, but before long she could do without. And my feet didn't hurt! That was so fun!

Then we went tubing. The kids loved it, and I loved that it was not too packed. Last weekend it was too crowded.

We went straight after church, so we ate our lunch there. It was a great day with my daughter!

High mountain skiing





Last sunday we went cross country skiing. It was a great day, and Prinsesse E did a good job. Earlier that morning we found her skis,boots and poles at a garage sale for $30! They only had one pair and it was perfect for her! We joined the YMCA so we will do a lot of skiing. I'm so excited!
