Little Leopard, Gramma & Grampa, and the First Fire.

Miss Alla was lucky enough to get this coat sent to her last winter from the wonderful Tara, whose blog I am too lazy to link at the moment. It finally fits her and it gets worn everyday. Literally. It's her favorite. "That one" is what she says to me as we're getting dressed for the cold. And she means this very one. She's also into dressing herself, as you can see, so if that means capris with pink striped tights and three ponies, then so be it. Little girls, gotta love 'em.
Lucky for us, Gramma and Grampa came to visit this weekend and Alla had herself a grand old time reading every last book she owns with them, decorating their cheeks with paper stars, and kicking down towers of blocks, which resulted in fits and fits of giggles.Our weekend was topped off by our first fire in our first fireplace. So lovely. I thought it might be a weekend thing, but I'm really aching for Ron to get home and start another one. Isn't it pretty?

let me first off start by saying that getting ready to marry into the AF lifestyle... that "first fire in our first fireplace" really hit me! i forgot that for a while Scott and I might not have a real fireplace to build fires if we are living in apartments and on base!!! Second off- having my daddy build us fires on the weekend is one of my fondest childhood memories!!!

Mazie went through that "wear what I want" phase. She has a coat that is similar that she can't wait to wear in PA next month. Looks like Alla likes the fire too.

the coat is to die for on her!!!!!!
ya know, savannah started that "i wear this" phase at 18 months and it has not been a phase, it has lasted forever. so man oh man, i say get a handle on it unless you want her to wear ONLY what she wants forever and you are willing to let it go even if it means NEVER wearing ANYTHING you buy them unless they pick it out themselves!!!! i say FORCE Her NOW LOL!!!!!!!!!!! i go through HE** trying to get them to wear anything that i think is CUTE!!!! good lucK!
