Today, Sam had her very first spelling test at school. She worked hard to get ready for it and was a little nervous before school today.
Well, she did great, she got 100%!! Great job Sam!! We are so proud of you!

I just want to remember this...

Today Sam and I were helping Anaïs crawl up the stairs. You could tell it was hard work for her so I said to Sam: "this is really hard for her you know" and Sam tells me "yes, it might be a good exercise for her to do at the physical fairy" LOL!!! You mean PHYSICAL THERAPY Sam!!
I love you Sam!!
I want to remember all these cute little things she says!

100th day of school.

To learn how to count to 100, the kids in Sam's class have been counting down the days to the 100th day of school since the beginning of the school year. Well, the day finally came!
To celebrate the 100th day, the kids had to bring 100 small items to share with their classmates. Sam decided to bring Goldfish crackers. Here she is this morning before school with her 100 items. Then, this afternoon they had a classroom party.
Sam was very excited, she had been waiting for this day for quite a while now. :)

Piggy back ride

Yesterday we went on a walk up at Calico Basin but Sam decided she was "too tired" to much for going on a walk. lol

It is so pretty up there, I just love it!

Anaïs' new favorite thing to do... to look at Sam when she's taking her bath. They had so much fun doing that tonight, I could hear them laugh so hard from the other room.

You always have a smile on your face...

...after eating frozen yogurt! Just look at them!
This afternoon we met our friends to go eat a frozen treat, the kids loved it...and so did we. ;)

Now...putting a white shirt on Anaïs was NOT a smart idea. lol

Just playing...

The girls had dinner early tonight so I let them play a little afterwards before bedtime. They had a good time. Sam chased Anaïs and she loved it!! Look at her face, she was laughing so hard. I love it when they laugh and giggle together. Then, it got a little more complicated. Sam was playing with her Barbie computer and of course Anaïs wanted it too...
Yep...she was not happy when Sam wouldn't let her see it. LOL
But thankfully they made up almost right away... :)

Someone is distracting Sam...

...during homework!!!
Tonight, I really wanted Sam to finish all her homework for the week so she could enjoy some free time with Jeff tomorrow night. Well...someone decided to make it hard for her to focus! lol
Anaïs wanted to grab all Sam's markers and her homework pages and had to be right in the middle of everything!

Here is the little trouble maker looking very

Better late than never!

These last couple weeks have been so busy that I didn't get a chance to post pictures from Chritmas eve. In our family, we celebrate Christmas on the 24th and open presents on Christmas eve. That is how I grew up and I have such wonderful memories of that. Sam wanted to make sure that we left a cookie for Santa and some carrots for the reindeer by the tree. They were pretty excited when Santa secretly brought the presents while we were upstairs putting our PJ's on. This Santa (or Père Noël as we call him in french)...he is always so sneaky and manages to come without us seeing him! ;)

She was SO excited to get the game Guess Who!

Here is the present Sam made for us at school, a framed picture that she drew.
Playing with her new toy.
What a great Christmas! I just wished we could have spent it with my family!
