I don't know if you've been hearing all the hype surrounding tomorrow, but it has me thinking. One extra day. What should I do with one day that normally every year I don't have? It kind of feels like almost if it was your last day, how would you live it? Kind of a carpe diem - seize the day - of sorts. I heard on the news they suggested going through your unwanted emails and actually hitting unsubscribe instead of just deleting them. Good idea, but not really seizing (not like a seizure:) the day. I kind of want to make a big deal about it with Sierra too. Should we go out of our way to do something nice for someone else, spend time with fam and friends, or just focused one on one time with each other? Any of you guys have any ideas? I want to instill in my little girl life isn't just about getting, but about investing in other people.

My 100th post is dedicated to my adorable little girl. She was anticipating losing a tooth for at least a month before, and finally the day arrived. She freaks out at the sight of blood, but when this tooth was wiggly, she worked on it and yanked it out - hilarious! I think in the process of showing it to both sets of grandparents, aunt and cousins, we lost the infamous tooth. But, there are many more to come :) So no tooth fairy visit this time, we'll have to wait a few more months, I guess :).

Ok I this post may be a little cheesy, but I lost Courtney's email and she wanted to see my new hairdo. So here is the old and in with the new. Believe me in real life the color is a lot more flourescent, but I soooo needed a change! The funny thing is I went to a beauty school so it would be cheaper ( to their credit it was), but it took the girl 5 hours! I was ready to grab the scissors myself! She kept calling over the instructor to check it and fix it. I think most of the others that were nearer to graduation would have been much faster, but this girl must have been brand spankin new. Sierra went full day yesterday b/c of their valentine party. Good thing, b/c there is no other way I would have been able to get it done. It was nice to look nice for our valentine's date though :)

The infamous sausage race - you have to be from Milwaukee to understand :)

I can't tell which Brewer this is, but our personal favorites are JJ Hardy and Prince Fielder (our cat is even named Prince Fielder :)

I don't know about any of you guys but I am so sick of snow and so ready for spring. I heard that the pitcher and catchers will be heading to practice soon, which makes me get excited about the Brewers season ahead. I think they have a good chance of doing well this year; they were right on the edge last year of making the playoffs. We normally go to about 5-6 games a year, but we'll probably have to limit the number this year. They are doing well which means they can raise the price of tickets again. We love going to TGI Fridays in the park and watching the game from in there, especially when we get nosebleed seats :). I even thought about working in Miller Park to get discounted seats, but that wouldn't work when there's day games. I don't think they'd approve of me bringing my daughter with me! Got to go - my daughter has a bandaid fettish and desperately needs one at the moment for an owie I can't even see!

(L-r) Myah, Atiera, Sierra, Mikaela & Mackenzie sitting in "Mrs. Sherwood's tree".

Sierra at her table with Jacob.

Sierra celebrated her 1/2 birthday yesterday at school since she has a summer birthday. You'd think it was her real birthday the way that she was so hyped up about it. She got to bring in a special treat for snack time. She chose icee push up popsicles. I found out from Sierra that almost the whole class got a yellow card after I left - they were wired from the sugar - oops :) Then she got to stay for lunch and get hot lunch. She was able to pick one friend to sit with her in the tree to celebrate her b'day, so she picked Atiera. I'm glad she had such a fun day!
