Yesterday we got had the wonderful opportunity to go snow shoeing in Grand Teton National Park. It takes us about 2 hours (in good conditions to get there). As we started to get into the high country the sites got prettier and prettier. The mountains ahead looked to pretty with their dusting of new snow, I just had to take a photo through the windshield as my Greg was driving.

I guess it's time to get back to my blog. I have been so negligent. It's such a cold, windy, and nasty day, it seems like a good time to post something. Now that the holiday rush is over, I am going to start doing Special Days again. It's easiest for me to remember if I go from youngest to oldest, so today was Jaycie's turn. We just ran errands and went out to lunch, but she was such a trooper. Her strong will and determination crack me up. She reminds me so much of Melissa at that age. You can't talk her into anything. It has to be her idea. We went to TJ Max. I was looking for a few different items and Jaycie was very patient. Then we went to the children's section. We found a little princess game for a few dollars and she wanted that for her special day treat. Then I saw some coats that were on sale for $10. I tried to get her to try on a coat. I thought that for that inexpensive price, if we could find one that was cute and would fit her, I would pick it up. She would not hear of it. I tried to tell her that even if we found a coat to buy, she could still have the princess game, but no all she could say was, "Maybe next year." Oh well, they probably weren't that cute anyway!! Then it was off to Chick Fil A for lunch.
