The Wish Lady

Abby is still doing really good. The weather has been great and so she has been able to play outside a ton. Her Nonnie, my mom, was here last week she got the girls a new bike to share. Anna has a little pink one but the wheels are still flat so I'll have to fix it soon so that they can race or something. The went out on the trail by our house and I guess Abby pooped out about 1/2 way into it so Tiffany had to put the bike on lily's stroller and push it home.

The Make a Wish Foundation people came over last night to see what Abby wanted. She was excited all day and keep asking me what time it was. When they finally got here both the girls ran off to hide. I know, I don't get it either. By the time that I hand wrangled them out of the corner of the family room Abby had fallen, stubbed her toe and was crying. But, she soon was over it and bouncing on the couch next to the "wish girl" as she called her.

They gave her a neat coin that says "wish" and asked her a bunch of questions about what her favorite things were. When she was all done with those they asked her the big question, what do you want to wish for?

Now I have to give you a little history before I tell you what she wished for. All week long she's been saying she wants to see the seashells, or swim with the "fishies" or go fishing or stuff like that. The week before though she wanted to "fly off to Never Land" which was cute and all but I thought might be hard to do. But last night it was none of these things it was simply that "I want to go to Disneyland". That's the wish. We made sure that she knew that she was already going to go to Disneyland but that made no difference to her so... sometime this fall we will go back to Disneyland and do it all again! I'm sure it will be great, she will have a blast both times as will we. But, I do have to say that swimming with the fishies in Hawaii would have been my first choice. That wish did come in second though so if they can't fulfill the first wish they will try to make the second one happen.

So that's the deal. I'll post some more pics soon.

Psuedo Spring

Well spring has sprung here in Colorado, even if it's only for a week or two. I love these little teaser spring days in March. We'll probably get snow next week but that's OK. Since it's been in the 60's and 70's this week Abby and Anna have been outside a ton. Playing in the yard, swinging at the park and riding their bike down our sloped driveway... Anna's a bit of a daredevil on that one!

The sun has definitely brought a new lightness to our family. It's great to see everyone feeling well and playing so great. Sometimes I forget that we have been locked up in our house for the last 3 months. No wonder this freedom to at least the yard has felt so nice!

We'll it's sunny again, so I'm going to make breakfast and go enjoy the sun. I'll be leaving the computer inside.
