Janie Quote....

Janie says some of the funniest and meaningful things all the time. This one today just made me smile and think " some days you do ok as a mom":).......

Her quote today  "Mom how come you are nice to me when I not nice to you?"  hahaha

I picked her up from a play date and she was a major whiner all the way home. I knew she was tired and kept answering her and asking her to say kind words :)

Just a few pics of Janie from my play time with my iphone...they are not blurry whoo hooo!

I have had a lot of fun playing with my new apps!

the kids have been out of school all week due to ice and a bit of snow...
Janie went out the other morning by herself and played for an hour:)

last but not least Madeline and Janie went on their first father/daughter date...
this is such a big deal for Madeline....she has not been willing to go...
too many people etc.
I am so proud of her, she had great time and danced her little heart out:)

Every year in 2nd grade the kids choose a biography to read
and the class has a program for the parents about what they learned...

Madeline did such a great job!
