Month 3 (12 Project)

By Tara Zandra | March 20, 2010


March 2010 will forever be known as Cookie Madness. We did nothing but eat, sleep, and breathe cookies. Tabitha and I had a total of 9 booth sales, 7 of which were in March. All family activities were put on hold. In the end, Tabitha sold an amazing 755 cookies.

New this month: Tabitha has taken to say “Huzzah!” when she is joyful. She calls it, and other odd words, Tabi-isms. She still demonstrates on a daily basis why her nickname is Sunshine. Tabitha can get very worked up about the “what ifs” of any situations, but on the whole, she is still a child who is constantly delighted with the world around her.

Daisy simply wants to be outside. Not only is she playing in the back yard as much as she can, she has made great strides in her agreeing to outdoor activities such as hiking. She now makes it much further before complaining of walking which is a great relief to all of us. We have currently decided to pull Daisy out of gymnastics. While she is not that happy about it, we do feel it is best for our family. As such, we are trying our best to give her many climbing activities so she can use that strength of hers.

During the middle of the month, the girls and I took a mini-vaction. Essentially a stay-cation, I just don’t like that word :) We went on two hikes, visited two nature centers, Disneyland, a new park, and the Autry Museum. It was a good week for us and a wonderful break from the stress of cookies.

By the time we were all done with Girl Scout cookies, our family was ready to reclaim our time together. We celebrated the first day of Spring with a trip to the snow. Our photo this month was taken at Mt. Baldy. We didn’t go to a designated area, we simply joined many other families in an open space at a campground that is closed in the winter and spring. We made snowballs, painted the snow, made a snowman of sorts, and went sledding by improvising with an old chair cushion for a sled. We had a wonderful time and it was a great way to usher in the Spring; as well as restarting our usual weekend routine of going out and having fun together!

    I always find it hysterical when people seek out the snow and revel in it while so much of the country is FED UP with the snow. LOL Glad you all had such a great time playing in the white cold stuff. And your didn’t-go-anywhere-cation sounds awesome!
