Easter Gift

Gillian received a pair of roller skates for Easter Grammie and Grampie Miner. I can be honest, I knew she wanted them but really didn't know if they were a good idea. Sometimes her coordination gets the best of her. But she has such an interest in everything and really enjoys trying to learn how to do new stuff that I don't want to discourage her.

They have turned out quite well. I can't say she is a natural but she is definitely giving it a shot....and I think she likes the equipment that goes with it.

When I look at her with her roller skates, knee pads, elbow pads and helmet....all I can think is roller derby!

Happy Easter

Gillian was up way too early for Craig and I to be excited. We acted excited and thrilled but 6:45 came too soon. Gillian had a blast going around the house looking for eggs that the Easter Bunny had left for her to find.

Easter Dinner

Gillian and I went to my parents for Easter dinner tonight. It was nice to get together for the holiday. The girls had fun hunting for candy that was left by the Easter Bunny. He didn't know that my parents vacation ended prior to Easter Sunday so he was nice enough to leave stuff for them to find ahead of time.

10,000 Eggs

It was rainy and cold but we took Gillian to the egg hunt at the hospital. 10,000 eggs gone in less than a minute and a half. Gillian made out like a bandit.

Ava is home!

Gillian and I were invited over to meet Ava tonight! My day did not go by quick enough. After work I picked up Gillian and went home to feed her and get my camera and off we went to visit. She is so tiny and precious....I could have held her for hours!

Practice Run

I planned an egg hunt for Gillian and my nieces. Gillian called it the practice one for when the Easter Bunny comes next week. It was a very cold day but the girls had fun and kept it quick!

Gillian and I went for a walk/bike ride - I walk, she rides her bike - last night. We were heading up a slight hill and she got stuck where she couldn't get the pedals moving so I told her to wiggle her butt meaning forward to back to get going and of course she wiggled left to she looks at me and says"Silly, that's not getting me anywhere." So of course I explain what I meant and give her a push. Then on the last lap there was a man walking a dog and it was obvious he was training the dog. We pass him and Gillian looks at me and says,"He is teaching his dog tricks." And I respond,"Yes, he is." She looks at me totally serious and says,"That's dangerous to do in the road." The only response I could give her,"Yes it is." She does bring such humor to my life.

5 Year Apt

Gillian went for her 5 year old apt today. She is 38.4 lbs and 43 3/4 inches tall. And TOTALLY healthy!

Ironically the only thing we worry about for her yearly physicals is if they are going to ask us what she eats. For 38.4 lbs she eats more in a day than most adults. If she isn't eating a meal then she is snacking on something. But miraculously the girl struggles to put on some weight.

The storm!

We had thunderstorms at 3am and 7 am. I had been looking forward to the thunderstorms all week and hoped that the weather man was actually correct. This is what it looked like when I left my house for work.

Yes, I need a boat!
