It's Potty Time!

As most of you know, Libby has been really been on a roll with her potty skills over the past few days. She got a "Potty Time" chart for Valentine's day that I hung in the bathtub. After she goes on the potty, she gets to put a sticker on the chart and get a piece of candy.

We told Libby that after she earned a row of stickers (which was 20) that we would take her to the store and let her pick out whatever toy (gulp!) that she wanted. Last night, she finished the challenge....and as promised, we headed to Target this morning to claim her prize.

After much debate, she decided on a baby doll that she named "Molly". It's so sad to see my little baby grow up into such a big girl before my eyes...but so exciting to anticipate what lies ahead.

Anything for charity....

On Saturday night, my cousins and I participated in the 4th annual "Mardi Gras Lip Sync" at St. Joseph's Church. This was the 3rd time in 4 years that I had participated in this fundraiser. Last night, some of my cousins joined together for an act we called, "Night at the Movies". This 8 minute act contained clips from movies such as Little Orphan Annie, Mrs. Doubtfire, Farris Bueller's Day off and Shirley Temple. Above, Diane and I pose before going on stage.
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I'll get rid of this wig, tomorrow, it's only a day away.
How do you solve a problem like Maria?? I'm the nun second from the left. Don't I look holy?
Mike as Mrs. Doubtfire...this dude did look like a lady!
The final scene from Farris Bueller's Day Off was amazing. We did a great job (if I must say so myself) and looked like Broadway stars! We earned aver $500 on our act, alone!
Me with my oh-so-handsome Godson, Todd. Isn't he adorable?

Gary did his best to entertain himself.

Snow Bunnies

On Saturday, we headed to the Banet's hill with about 25 other people to go sledding. Libby was crazy about the snow! She threw snowballs, made snow angels, ate it (thanks to Uncle Shawn) and went down the hill many times.
Taking her turn on the bobsled.
No, she's not napping. She's making a snow angel.
Ally, Kayla and Libby making snow angels (they look like their mommies do after too many drinks).
JP broke his sled going down the big hill. You'll be glad to know that he didn't spill his beer when he wiped out.
Gary drinking a beer to stay warm. Sledding makes a girl hungry...for donuts and milk.
Libby mastered the "bunny slopes".
Sarah and I made about 10 trips up and down this treacherous hill. Here she is on one of her solo rides.
This was the funniest wipe-out of the day. We all got very comfortable going down tandem on a tube. In order to do so, we had to run and jump on it at the exact same time. This particular time, Gary and JP missed the tube when they jumped on it...leaving Gary face-first in the snow and JP like this.........hanging on for dear life. Lucky, their girls had more coordination then they do. Kayla and Libby show them how it's done. Lanie and Libby
