    Thank you again and again. We’re so grateful!!
    Clearly we’re spending too much time together. The boys seem to be color coordinated everyday lately. Makes for great pictures… 🙂

    I noticed that too – and it does make for good pictures!

Boiled Eggs Made Fun

Alex loves eggs. He especially loves boiled eggs. At one point he was eating at least two every morning. Now he eats one in the morning and most days has another one sometime for a snack. When I saw an ad for hard boiled egg molds in a magazine, I decided to give it a…

Giggles And Chats

Alex had a rough awakening from his nap today. After we got that out of his system, he was full of smiles and giggles. He also learned how to share a pillow on the couch with Mom: Madison watched it all from her place on the couch: Alex is just getting old enough that skype…

Boys, Boys, Boys

I love that Alex has two little boys always up for playing. It doesn’t hurt that Nicki and Amber and I enjoy visiting too. The best part is that we all live within walking distance and can usually play on pretty short notice. Everyone ended up at our house and the boys had no trouble…

Is White White?

I shouldn’t be surprised by this, but it turns out white isn’t always white. Alex got a step stool for Christmas and it just arrived in the mail today. I was so excited to put it in our upstairs bathroom until I realized their white is not the same white as our cabinets and floor….

Splish Splash

Alex had his first adventure at a water park today. Amber and Abram invited us to Country Springs Water Park. Alex immediately got in the water and was pretty much up for anything. His favorite feature was the huge bucket on top of the playground that would dump water. Sadly I couldn’t make it “dump”…

Springy Snowman

Springy Snowman has been with us since the first Christmas we got married. I don’t remember all of the particulars, but Grant (a good friend from college) bought him for Wade. They both felt that Springy Snowman should stay in the living room year round. The first year he did. Every year since Wade and…

    Let it be known that the boy was not recruited. He found spring snowman in the basement on his own accord. This travesty will not stand. Behold, the triumphant return of springy snowman is on the cusp.
