Last Sunday was cold. After getting home from church, the girls were getting bundled up to go play in the snow. Addie stops, puts her hand on Korey's cheek and says,
"I love you because you always make your body so handsome with clothes."
Addie then looks to mom so as not to leave her out and says with her head slightly tipped,
"You always make your body pretty with clothes"
Addie then grins, says goodbye, and rushes out the door to play in the snow.
It makes me smile just thinking about it. Sometimes she does the funniest things out of no where......

Over the last few weeks, Addie has decided that she is 'good' at the alpahbet and can 'read'. It is so exciting, Addie finally wants to LEARN! Most of last year she refused to sing the entire alphabet, I started wondering if she could actually still say the entire alphabet....This year, she is just a little sponge. She loves to put letters together, sound them out and ask, what does that spell? She is learning blends from her big sister, but I am just so relieved as a mom that she WANTS to learn. What a difference 6 months can make!!!!

I have had the pleasure of watching Alexis at her last two performances of the Church Christmas play. That was so much fun; she seems to just 'get it'. She speaks slowly and clearly, she is ready for her lines each time and her duet is great. I am so proud of her-she desn't appear nervous in any way, just ready. I can't believe that is my little girl I am watching-it is awesome to watch her grow into such a neat kid!
