April 2009

Liliana just walked into the room and proclaimed, “I want to be a pissy fairy.” I started laughing so hard, and she couldn’t figure out why. She looked at me rather inquisitively and restated, “Mom, I just want to be a pissy fairy.” I looked her straight in the eyes and said, “You go girl, go be a fairy with an attitude!”

She is in her bedroom right now putting her pixie fairy costume on… with black shoes to boot! Who knew fairies walked around with such attitude!


Finally, finally, finally the weather turned here for the better. After missing out on 6 days of school because of closures due to snow over the past month, the sun and warm weather finally made its way to South Dakota. And the little Ladybug is loving every warm, sunny moment of it! With temperatures in the 80’s, Liliana donned an adorable dress and shorts, and daddy added some adorable pig-tails to boot. I just had to share. Woohoo… Happy Spring!!!

Hard to believe that this was our weather less than three weeks ago! My oh my how things change quickly here!

**UPDATE (the next morning): I just awoke and the Weather Channel is forecasting a high of 40 degrees!  Yesterday we enjoyed a record high of 85 degrees.  Hmmmmm… things do change quickly around here.

***UPDATE #2 (at 10:30 a.m. the same morning).  Great big HUGE snowflakes falling to the ground.  Seriously, where is this weather coming from?



Well, it happened… our little bug turned another year older. It was bound to happen, but I just want to know… where is my little girl going? She had a stellar party (that I will discuss in another post) with a few select friends, and lots of perfect 3-year old “princessness.”

Beside her fun little party, we also took Liliana to get her 3-year old portraits completed. Unlike the previous two years, she is now a posing pro and was able to get all of her photos completed in half the time! Below are a few of the pictures from her session. Enjoy!

Kissing the bear.

Lounging with the butterflies. She just loved this background.

She just looks so much older now. She is not a little “baby” any more.

Another cute collage in her favorite dress… she is showing is that is twirls!

Our happy little three-year old.
