Snow Day Drought...

So I haven't had a single snow day. All year. My friend Alison says the real world doesn't have snow days. My sister says that I should just remember my fabulous summer vacation. I say, that if I have to tie shoes and distribute tissues and say things like, "Let's see if we can be as quiet as mice in the hallway," then I deserve a snow day. Okay...so I don't deserve it...but I'd still like one (just one) this year. I think I'm going to move to Sunbury. My friend Megan has had like 15 snow days. There's a big snow storm coming tomorrow. I'm trying not to get my hopes up. Hello, real world. I don't like you.

Sammy- 9 mos....

Look at those baby blues. God winked down at me when he blessed this brown-eyed girl with two blue eyed babes. Sam is crawling and pulling up all the time. He just recently started repeating "mamama" or "dada" and he loves the cats...and his big sister. You'll also see the evidence of his first "mischief." He unloaded half a box of wipes before we stopped him. There's even a shot of his first visit to the rainforest! Enjoy!

Snow Bunny

Addie has been pretty sick for most of this winter when snow has been available to have some fun. Tonight, though, we were able to head outside and play!



What do you do when your daughter says to you "Shovel, daddy! I want shovel." Obviously you have your wife procure a ladel as the next best thing.

Jen rewarded us both with some hot chocolate... how awesome!

Peanuts

So when you have two kids in the tub of different genders, the older one will figure this fact out and ask your about it. Addie knows that she has a vah-jay-jay (thanks Oprah), and now she knows that boys have peanuts. At least that is what it sounds like when she says it.

The other day she was listing all of the people that she knows who "have peanuts"...

Oh boy...

her first joke...

So the other night I was putting addie to bed and she was procrastinating going to sleep (shocking). I was trying to teach her how to (more accurately) brush her teeth. {side note: I can teach kids to read and write and add...brushing your teeth is surprisingly tricky} I was showing her with my finger how you brush "way in the back" on your molars. She was watching me and she stopped and got a little smirk. She took her toothbrush out of her mouth and reached around her body and brushed her actual back. She started laughing and said, "I brush my back, Mama..."

hilarious...
