New Favorite Song

We went to Recognition Night at Northern Voices last night. All the kids were so adorable. They all walked down the aisle of the room to this song, which made me BAWL, of course. I'm such a sap. It's such a beautiful song though. Originally sang by Kermit the Frog, as you may remember. Remade (wonderfully, I might add) by Sarah McLachlan. This is her version:

Cute Story

Kind of a cute story I just had to share. Ally and I were at the plant store on Sunday. We were leaving the store and heading to the car, when the guy in the car next to us said to me "excuse me, ma'am, is your husband shopping with you today?" I said "no, he's not". He said "oh well, because some women's husbands don't like them to talk to or help strangers. And then,"oh, well my battery is dead, would you mind giving me a jump?". This was an older gentleman (about 70 years old probably), and he had his wife and granddaughter in the car with him. How harmful could that be?! So, we were able to get his car started and after that, he whipped out his wallet (sweet - $20?) and gave me his business card. He's a pastor at a church in Blaine. He said if I ever need a free wedding or anything, to give him a call (where was this guy 4 years ago?) His wife said I was their guardian angel that day. Needless to say, I left the store with a big smile on my face. Some people are just so cute!

Overdue Posting

So, I've been neglecting the blog. Sorry. Like I said though, life with a 2 year old is never boring. She won't be 2 for much longer, she turns 3 in August. I can hardly believe it. We've now come into the potty training days, little Ms. Attitude, and "what Ally wants, Ally gets". Oh well, I would not trade one moment of it.

Northern Voices (Ally's school) is wrapping up on Thursday. We're all taking a trip to Como Zoo on Friday, so that should be a fun time! I just hope the weather cooperates.

We had a nice weekend. Didn't do much on Friday night. We both had a couple beers and Adam grilled chicken, which was delicious. Saturday, my parents picked up me and Ally and we went to St. Cloud to visit my nephews, Ryan and Tyler. They are both getting so big and have such great personalities. Then I worked at Totino's at 4:00. Sunday we laid around. Finally got around to showering, and then I took Ally to get her hair cut. Then we went to Wal Mart for some essentials. At 4:00, we went to a birthday party for our friends Dave and Kelly's daughter, Emma. She turned 3. What a big girl she is becoming. Such a cutie pie.

Here are a few pics from this weekend. Ally on the couch in her "big girl underwear" (which she happens to pee in a lot), and her new "do". Enjoy! (I couldn't figure out how to post the pics under the writing - sorry, I'm not blog saavy).
