Is spring on it's way to GA?
(I hope this is not a cruel 80° Leap Day joke!)

59 New Job

The LT got a "new job" yesterday. Today was his first full day of work. He is working at the Airborne Headquarters. It's a pretty cool gig. I'm secretly hoping he can finagle a way for me to get to jump out of an airplane...

57 Leapin' Lizards!

Ok, so no lizards really.
The DQ turns 12(!) this year and will be going into Young Women's in church.
They are having a dinner for all of the incoming girls and had planned it for Leap Day (but scheduling conflicts required they change it to a few weeks later) so the theme is "Leap Into Personal Progress" so they wanted pictures of the girls leaping.
She is getting so big!

56 Princess Bean

Today we watched the show "Make My House Disney".
Now Bean is obsessed with creating the perfect princess room.
She got out her tracing station and traced all of the princesses so we could hang them in her room. She also had a very un-Bean-like meltdown when I told her I would not give her the DQ's canopy bed so that she could have a princess bed with curtains.
Heaven help me.

55 Do the Evolution

I am still trying to go through the last of the boxes of things that were thrown into the spare room. Several of boxes had not been opened throughout several moves. I am determined not to lug this junk to another house.
Today, we found these phones tucked away. Amazing to see how much technology has evolved. The Star-Tac on the left was retired from the LT's usage in 2002.
And do you know what? He plugged it in...
and it worked!

54 Cruisin'

These two were at it again today. Bean is going to be in a world of hurt when her BFF says "Aloha" in May!

53 Flat Stanley

We recieved a vistor in the mail the other day. His name is Flat Stanley and he came to stay with us and check out Fort Benning!
We "took" him around with us and took some pictures. He learned what life is like on an army post and what things are like in Georgia. Then he wrote a letter back to the class he came from and today, I mailed him back to Arizona.
It was a fun activity to do with the girls and now I am even reading the book Flat Stanley to Bean!

52 Tough Job

I walked by this hagning in the hallway at Bean's school today.
I laughed out loud.
Apparently, only presidents have to think.

51 Sweet Neighbors

Our neighbors brought us a King Cake tonight. I knew what a king cake was, but had never tried one.
Bean ran around the house tonight singing her excitement for dessert.
She was not disappointed!

50 Again

Yes. We watched more Downton Abbey tonight.
No. We did not accomplish things that we were wanting to do.
But. We're almost done with it and will have lots of time to get things done until it returns in September.

49 Soggy

Today we drove out to Auburn in hopes of an afternoon of walking around, shopping, and enjoying the day.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans and it rained all day.
So we really didn't do much except eat at Chipotle (where else!?) and run into a few stores.
It's supposed to be like this tomorrow, and it's rained every other day this week.
I'm ready for the sun to come back.

48 One Down...

I finally got around to sewing a baby gift. My guilty consience got the best of me since this precious little one is now 3 months old!
Only 2 more left to sew!

47 I Rather Fancy This...

I daresay we are quite fond of Downton Abbey around here. Today we enjoyed 6 episodes of this lovely program.

46 Dinner

Columbus finally has a healthy option for dinner!
This was our first time at a Zo√ęs Kitchen and it was delish!

45 There's No Place Like Home

Happy birthday Arizona!!
It's been a crazy 100 years and I am proud to call you home!!
(and since I am not there to take a photo of AZ today, I am leaving you with this one of miss Bean, celebrating that other holiday today)

We sure are loved!!

My mom and I hit up the Arizona Best Fest.

42 Mo Tab Choir

(Please pardon the camera phone photo... they didn't allow cameras or recorders in. Yet they let phones in though...)
As part of my mom's birthday gift, I took her to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
They were invited by the governor to help celebrate Arizona's 100th birthday.
It was quite an experience.
Hands down my favorite moment though, was when the guest conductor was introduced and Sandra Day O'Connor came on stage to lead the choir in "God Bless America."
Truly a once in a lifetime event!

41 A Thousand Words

I flew to Arizona to suprise my mom for her birthday.
She had NO idea I was coming.
Can you tell?

40 Playing Frankenstein

The DQ has a book project due this week and she needed some help. The story is about a girl who looses her leg in a car accident. In her diorama, she wanted to show the before and after for the main character. Today I cut off the leg of the doll and then hand sewed velcro on so that her leg would detach.
I felt like a real surgeon!
(ok, maybe not, but that's as close as I'll ever get!)

39 Procrastination

I have several projects I've been meaning to get finished for oh, about 2 months now, but just haven't gotten them done. While I was in AZ, I purchased an embroidery foot for my machine thinking it would make some free-sewing easier. I spent over an hour trying to figure out how to lower the feed dogs before I finally figured out that you can't do it on this machine. Awesome.
Oh, and that was an hour spent messing with the machine, not actually sewing...

38 Whatever it Takes

The LT has had some stuff at work in the works for a few months now. Nothing we can really talk about, but something we've been hoping/praying for fervently.
Things are progressing quite well, but nothing is a done deal yet.
Today, he was told he had to sign some paperwork relating to this big Hope.
His Major then informed him that he would not process any of his paperwork unless he got more cookies.
So guess what I did today?
Happy to do it.

Super ending.
Super day.

35 Where is All of the Tupperware?

Oh, there it is.
In the fridge.
Thanks to the LT for cleaning it all.
(P.S. The LT thinks I'm crazy for posting this photo)

34 A Night at the Theater

We scored some free tickets to the play Ramona Quimby tonight.
The DQ brought a friend along. We had a great dinner at Houlihan's before, and then ran into a few friends from church at the theater so we all went out for ice cream afterwards!

32 Pulp (non)Fiction

We get a weekly newspaper, The Bayonet.
Last week, I didn't pick it up because it was raining.
Then we accidentally drove over it, and it turned to this:
(Today's paper on the left. Last week's on the right)
I was sure to pick up today's before it started raining again.
