How We're Doing the First Week of the New Year

Ashton is doing great!  Nothing really to report.  But sometimes the mundane stuff is just as important as the big stuff.

We've had snow, but today was our first big snow.  I don't know the total count, maybe 4-6 inches.

Ashton is super excited about the snow.  She begged to walk in it on the way to daycare this morning.  And as their drive way wasn't shoveled, she got her wish.  She was on cloud nine.  She wanted to go home and play in it, but it got too dark by then.  But the temperature is supposed to plummet tonight.  It is about 21 degrees for her to play a short time, but tomorrow a high of 5 degrees (with wind chill it'll be a high of -15 degrees or so!) Therefore no playing outside tomorrow.

Khaleesi hasn't gotten her exercising and has been chewing on things she shouldn't.  So we're trying to be more diligent with her.  It's got to be hard for her.  She just wants to run and play, and it's just not the weather to go out and do that right now.  It's times like this I wish I had a fenced yard or a yard at all.

The other dogs don't mind and love snuggling up together.  We've all enjoyed fires, playing dominoes together and Ashton's cards.  But Ashton has really enjoyed her puzzles and playing with apps mostly.

Ashton has been singing around the house.  She used to just ask us to sing, but now she is.  And her songs of choice, Christmas carols.  "Jingle Bells" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" are her most popular songs to sing.  It makes her very happy.

Her potty training is going VERY well.   She's pretty much potty trained at daycare, with minimal accidents.  She wears panties to daycare now.  And she loves her newest panties.  She has Frozen and Supergirl and Wonder Woman themed underwear.  She may not care what I dress her in, but she is rather particular about what panties she wants to wear that day.  It's adorable.  She wears her panties at home too, but wears diapers or pullups when we're out and about.  Though I've forgotten a time or two, and you should see it.  It's like she knows when we're in the grocery store and we're the furthest from the restrooms and she's in her panties, that's the time she has to go and I'm racing her to the bathrooms!  Those are the moments I like least.  She even mentioned needing to go once in the car (with her panties on) and I hurried and pulled over to a store and we got to the toilets in time!!  Thank goodness no accidents in the stores.  We're so proud of her!

I cut her hair for the first time last night.  Nothing big.  I have always cut her bangs since the terrible cutting incident in August of 2013!  But this time I cut her actual hair.  It was getting really long and I wanted more of the layered look.

That's about it for now.  Just the normal stuff.  Good stuff. We are blessed.
