Keilee had a great birthday. We went to IHOP as we have every year since she was 3. She wore the same hat she has worn since then. And they brought her an ice cream sundae and sang, “Happy Birthday” the same as always.
She didn’t do 14 Acts of Kindness but she did do several things. She baked cookies and brownies for the Police Officers, she got a Gift Card at Starbucks for the person behind us in line and she bought candy and took to Hospice. They were so awesome to my Mom before she died that Keilee wanted to do something nice for them.
We had a HUGE Freeze here, temperatures below zero so these girls stayed inside for days. We watched movies, played games, read, Keilee did History and Science and Art and edited photos and more.
We broke down and got cable this week. After 1 year and 7 months. ATT has finally made UVerse available where we are. After 30 minutes on the phone I got over 150 channels for $20 more a month. It is a 2 year contract and she guaranteed me that price for the entire 24 months. I also got a $250 Visa Gift Card!! We canceled HuluPlus and Netflix DVD to home and that saved $16 so it is only $4 difference. The main selling point is that our internet is 3x faster!!! My download speed was 5.89 and I have checked twice and it is over 21mg!!!!
Keilee started back gymnastics and we did several experiments with water and ice. These are BUBBLES that froze! So cool.

So 2014 is starting off great. We have plans the next few days that we are looking forward to and Keilee is doing a class right now with Jessica’s girls on FaceTime! So there are girls in Alabama and Connecticut learning together! Technology rocks!
I love this quote and I feel the exact same way
“I am often accused of being childish. I prefer to interpret that as child-like. I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things. I tend to exaggerate and fantasize and embellish. I still listen to instinctual urges. I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. I never water my garden without soaking myself. It has been after such times of joy that I have achieved my greatest creativity and produced my best work.” ~Leo F. Buscaglia
