Celebrate the Small Things

Every week some of us like to share the small things that we have accomplished. Thanks Viklit for giving us an outlet!

1. This weekend I have two Painting With A Twist paries to attend. The first is my daughters', she will be 14 on Feb. 4th. And the other is a friend. Super stoked! I love painting on canvas and a little wine.

2.  The kids FINALLY went back to school. Out of 20 days of school, the kids have only been able to go 10. 50/50 is bad I guess. I just wish Old Man Winter would head back to the arctic where he belongs.

3.  Yesterday my daughter got her braces off. I asked if I could share the picture of her before/after and she said ok. I've never had braces but after what I witnessed yesterday, I'm blessed God gave me perfectly straight teeth. She teared up a few times and cried once when the Dr had to push down on a tooth to straighten it out before he put the permanent retainers on (apparently he didn't think it was perfect enough). I thought she was going to deck him.
The left picture she looks like Lohan from Parent Trap. She has grown up so much! Time flies!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
