My Happy Girl

It's easy to take the little things in life for granted. I was reminded this weekend of how blessed we are to have an innocent little girl running around our house, filling our lives with joy. The happiness that Grace brings to our life is unlike anything that Cody and I have experienced before. I hope that her joyful personality continues through life and she remembers and is reminded of how loved she is on a daily basis.

On the fine evening these photos were taken, we decided to give the oven a (much  needed) break and ordered pizza + lava cake (yum!). As you can see, Grace really enjoyed the chocolate she is being her goofy gooney self.

One of Cody's couisins got married this weekend in Pierre. It was a nice event (except that they planned it outdoors and we had inches of snow on the ground so it was moved inside) and I was able to meet many of Cody's extended family members that I hadn't met yet. Cody even met a few for the first time. Grace of course had a blast! She especially loved getting to know her Great Uncle E more, seeing her Auntie Ashley and her Grandma and Grandpa. She's a lucky girl to have so many people in her life that care about her.

Tomorrow morning, I'm off to Chicago for the week for work. I look forward to exploring Chicago a bit with Wanda - we'll have a good time and have some great meetings lined up for work.

We're headed out to the Black Hills for Easter with Cody's family - it will be our first large family function in their new house, excited for all the space that this place has so we can really enjoy each other's company comfortably.

Kiss your loved ones and tell them that you loved them!
