We have a rabbit.
She left for school as a little girl and when I had lunch she was fine but sometime during reading she lost her tooth.


It is finally cold enough for Steve to wear the scarf Mara made him.

French horn

Ella just got to switch over to the French horn today.  She is so excited. I am grateful the school has one she can borrow.  This is a single French horn. A double French horn has another loop and sounds nicer but this will have to do and if she likes it we will have to see if we can find her own.

Old becomes new

Bought an end table at the local thrift store for $5-- I could see the potential it had and I knew that Mara needed something to put her dollhouse on besides a grey tote full of clothes that no longer fit her. The added bonus is the extra storage she gains below. 
This is the end result. Mara chose the color and I'm happy to say she loves it.

That means trumpet in Spanish. This is how Ella likes to practice--outside.  She says she sounds better. It is quieter inside the house and the neighbors haven't complained.

A Magical Morning

We woke up to a dusting of snow this morning which made the walk to school a bit cooler but a lot more fun as feet slid and tracks were made. And how can you resist sticking out your tongue trying to catch a few snowflakes.
