Weekend Visit

As I shared previously, we had a relaxing weekend with the kids. We also had Ron's parents visiting. We stayed home and played games and watched movies. It was great.. very relaxing. Grandma and Granddad loved playing games with Anna and helped Luke "draw draw" on his magna doodle toy. Good time but too short!

Getting Big

So... I know that this has been happening. I mean, since the day I became a parent people have said "Enjoy it because they grow up fast." Well, this weekend it seem to hit me hard. My babies are getting soooooo big. Here are 3 photos to prove my point. Anna enjoys playing on her laptop (nitro notebook) and then offers to read Luke his bedtime story. The next day she says she'll hold him since he is a little grumpy after nap and look..... he's getting as big as she is. Well maybe not as tall but he's catching her in pounds. He already eats more, drinks 1/4 of a gallon of milk in a day and can hold his own if she tries to take away a toy. Life gets so busy and hectic if was nice to stop and do nothing all weekend but "enjoy" our little ones!

Happy Valentine's Day!

For Valentines Day we had a party at Anna's school. We successfully made cupcakes the night before (complete with pink icing and yummy sprinkles). The cupcakes were a hit and even Luke enjoyed some snacks. He is so big, he just fits right in with all the kids in Anna's class. Anna's friend was hanging out with me while her mommy and daddy caught an afternoon movie. She enjoyed visiting Anna's classroom and Anna gave her a complet tour!

"I'm hiding!"

This is Luke's "i'm hiding" pose. He usually dose it when a commercial featuring the rockem' sockem' robots bust through a wall and fight with a truck. Sometimes he will run and hide behind the recliner. It's precious, don't you think?

Snow Day #2

Sunday morning brought more snow! We got 1/2 inch of snow and it was a bitter 19 degrees when Ron and Anna went out to play. They tried to get Sherry and Jerry (next door) to come out but they enjoyed the view from inside while sipping coffee...Next they headed down to a friends house where they had fun slipping and sliding on her swing set slide. Anna came in and warmed up by cuddling with her brother!

Let it Snow!

What a surprise! We had expected snow Thursday and didn't get any, but today we got about 1 1/2 inches! Anna was so excited I'm surprised she waited until after breakfast before heading out into it! We bundled up and had snow fights and attempted to build snowmen and then played with friends from the neighborhood! Even Sherry from next door joined in the fun and she and I had a great snowball war! Fun day!
