She only ate olives and french fries for dinner.
She entertained herself by reading her new books and using my camera to take random pictures. Some of her pictures were actually pretty good.
Here's my entree. Looks good but it was just ok. I got Laura pasta with sauce and she didn't touch it.

On Saturday, I made a big breakfast of pancakes and bacon and Laura and I set out for a sledding adventure. Here she is with Matthew before we set out for our little trip.

There was crazy weather on President's Day. It was about 60 degrees with high winds and crazy rain. Laura and I went to Ikea again b/c there was a free "Magic show". We went to the 11am show. Laura was shy and wanting to sit on mommy's lap and being all needy. See the tongue "I'm feeling uncomfortable" look?
The look she gave me when I made her stand up b/c my legs were about to fall off from her sitting on them for 1/2 hr.
Then we drove to her daddy's work for lunch.
A quick trip to Trader Joes and our local bakery and down for a nap.
From Dr. Seuss' ABC book:

We've been crafty this week. Laura made some cards.
I put lipstick on her so that she could put poh pohs (kisses) on her cards.
Here she is kissing one of her cards.
She also helped me make cookies for her school. Who needs a mixing stand when you have a child to do it for you! I made sugar cookies but messed up the dough. I doubled the amount of butter so it was soooo difficult to work with. It took forever and was very painful and the cookies were obviously very buttery.

This was short lived and she continued to go downhill for the rest of the afternoon. Her father took a look at her this evening after he got home from work and thinks that she's got strep again and an ear infection so we started her on antibiotics AGAIN!
Needless to say, we sat down for a feast of BBQ ribs and all the sides while watching the superbowl and Laura ate some and proceeded to vomit all of her dinner back on her plate. Aren't you glad I didn't get any photos of that?!
Anyway, we watched the Patriots lose and by then, Laura was feeling better.
A side story: One of the girls babysitting at the gym told me that she asked Laura if she was going to watch the superbowl and Laura said "I don't got that movie".

I made these yummy brownies topped with chocolate chips and marshmallows which was gooey, chewy, rich and decadent. Of course, no one has been eating this except me.
I asked Laura if she wanted a piece and she opted for a bagel with cream cheese. What is wrong with this girl?!
