The girls and I had a nice day today- we were off for the holiday, and Todd didn't have to go in until 10, so we all had breakfast together, and then Todd went off to work. After Annie's nap, we all bundled up and headed out to the library. But, apparently the library was closed for the holiday, too, so we went to Barnes and Noble instead. Riley got a new Tinker Belle book and I picked up a few things from Halloween and Christmas for next year. Then we went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch. And then we spent the afternoon playing with all of the new Christmas toys :)

I promised an update on Riley...she has really been growing up before our eyes. She is reading now- every day I get an update from her and her teacher about the books she has read. And she reads to Annie all of the time, too. She is very much into Tinkerbelle right now- she has lots of books and toys and clothes and even a Tinkerbelle phone, which was her favorite Christmas present.

They are learning all about penguins at school and every day she tells me new things about penguins. She loves telling people how baby penguins eat, and the fact that the mother or father penguin regurgitates food for the babies....she even knows that word and what it means!! I learned the other day that she can count to 20 in French now- so that makes 4 languages that she can count in!!

Todd told me that I needed to get this down, too....when she sits on her feet at the dinner table so she can be up high, her feet fall asleep and instead of calling it "pins and needles" she calls it "thorns and briars" cute!

It is so hard to believe that in a few weeks she will be 5!!! We are having her party this year at Pump It Up....took a long time to decide where she wanted it, but it came down to that or Chuck E Cheese, and so we decided just to go with Pump It Up....she will have a great time!!

So, that is my Riley update....we are waiting for the big snow storm- really hope we get some so she can use her new boots and go out and play in it- even if it is just an inch!!!
