I thought this fancy footwear was pretty special!
a little friend from church who we are trading babysitting with:
she tied this one on herself!
she can now tie bows and is pretty proud of the new skill.
rapunzel is a big theme - see her loonnnng hair?
We got to see Stella and her mom a couple times just after Christmas! It was really wonderful to see them, felt like no time at all had passed.. Stella is starting Kindergarten in the next month - it is so neat to hear all the Dutch she is learning!! Did you know knuffle [as in Knuffle Bunny] means hug in Dutch?? I love that :) Anyway, the girls didn't skip a beat and got right to playing - not even any of their usual sibling-like bickering :) Vera talks about Stella a lot still - wouldn't it be fun to visit them someday?
oops accidentally uploaded this one of edie putting pennies in the piggy bank...
a favorite activity!
