Where's Winter??

It's mid-January and it's supposed to be winter time, however the weather does NOT agree! It's 70+ degrees outside and my kids are sportin' their flip flops and short sleeved t-shirts;) 
Ahh... it's just one of the many perks of living in the south;)
 And yes...I really do LOVE being a southern girl!
 My sweet niece, Makayla, spent the entire day with us yesterday and we had ourselves a GRAND time! My sister-in-law went into labor early Thursday morning, so Makayla was dropped off at our house on their way to the hospital. I'm an Aunt AGAIN and Makayla is a very proud BIG sister!!!
 My new niece, Kaitlyn, was born mid-day on Thursday and weighed 6lbs. 7oz. 
  She's a BEAUTY and has a head full of jet black hair.  
Oh I can't wait to get my hands on her;)
So while Makayla was here visiting with us for the day, the kids and I took full advantage of the PERFECT weather!
It was perfect for the playground,
perfect for a picnic and
 perfect for our play date!
And when the chimes of the ice cream truck could be heard coming up the street later that afternoon, we all agreed that our day was...

Maybe the Kona Ice truck will appear in your neighborhood soon too;)

Congratulations on your new niece! How sweet!
I really need to move south. We had 70 degree weather over the weekend, and now it's back in the 30's. Brrr!
