(here they are in 2006. Wow.)
We had a play, and our girl (in pink, front right) was busy for months preparing. Another of our girls was on the crew that painted the fabulous sets, so lots and lots of driving back and forth for rehearsals. A big thanks to eldest son, who did much of that driving for me. I knew that day would come, but I had no idea how marvelous it would be. (Any guesses on what play it was?)
And of course, as previously noted, little Melanie had her second birthday on St. Patrick's Day.
I still can't really believe she is two, but her vocabulary is really picking up lately, so she is acting more two. She is also asserting herself a bit more, but mostly is very sweet and cuddly.
So March has already come and gone, and we are in mid-April already. We are spending much more time outside, but it is still brown and cold and dreary. I am so ready for real Spring!
