Joel and Amelia have gone to Jameson's 3rd birthday party today. I stayed home due to the nasty cough and the need to study (which I'm currently taking a little break from). Amelia was sooooo cute when they left. She was dressed nicely and had glitter in her hair - party ready! This afternoon, she and I will go do a little shopping 'cause I don't plan to go to Sonora again for the rest of the week.
Oh, the butterflies... all 5 "hatched." Two of them as previously reported, one during school on Friday and the other two during the course of that evening. They're doing great, eating from orange slices, strawberries and flowers with sugar water sprayed on them. Amelia watches them all the time. We'll be setting them free at the Preschool Spring Party on Friday. It has been a very cool project and we'll probably do it again.

The big news on our hill is that of a visitor... a big Mama Bear is awake and hungry. She's been getting into the neighbor's trash cans and making people nervous. A few days ago, our friend John accidentally locked the bear in his garage, long hilarious story. Anyway, it took a snow shovel to clean up the "mess." So far, I haven't seen or heard it at my house but that doesn't make me want to be outside much after dark.

Amelia spent her first night in a "big" bed last night. When we brought it home, she was so excited and actually asked to go to bed last night! Joel found the bed on craigslist a couple of months ago and I got a mattress for it yesterday when I was in Sonora. After seeing the bed, our neighbor, Donna, brought over the cute bedspread that really went with the bed perfectly. As you can see, as soon as I got it made up with her new Diego sheets, she got to try out the bounce!

We experienced another first today - the escalator! As soon as we got on it Amelia yelled "woo hoo!" Disneyland is going to seriously blow her mind!
