We haven’t been up to much lately.  Just watching the days get warmer and longer.  It is my favorite!  And I can see my daffodils and the 90 tulip bulbs I planted in the fall coming in.  I can’t wait to see what colors they all are if the deer don’t get to them first.  I will curse those deer if they do.  Anyway…life is good and here’s the proof.

The kids built a fort one day and spent a good portion of the morning in there.  You do what you have to when the outside is covered in snow.

It was supposed to be 50 degrees this day so I couldn’t resist putting Sophs in some of her new adorable spring attire.  And she can’t resist playing “check-up” with anything and everyone.  I think all of her doctor visits have had quite an impact on her young life.  Future doctor??  We’ll see…  You want to know the cutest thing she is saying these days?!?  When you say “Thanks Sophie”  She says “You’re helper” instead of “You’re Welcome”.  It is my favorite.  I don’t ever want her to grow out of it.

A little story time with Daddy never hurts.  Nor does a picture of Sophie’s huge post dinner belly.  Love it.

This boy is always up to something.  And yes…he is his “comfys” for a good portion of the day.  I have noticed as he has been dressing himself more lately (one of his chores) that he always picks stretchy waisted pants to wear….never jeans.  They learn young what is comfortable!  I decided this last library trip to check out some chapter books to read to Jack.  We finished James and the Giant Peach in 5 days and are now on to Stuart Little.  He is loving it.  Although I did have to do a little editing since the A-word appears 3 times in that book.  Not quite ready to explain those kind of words since at the moment “stupid” is the worst word he knows!

After our perfect dentist check-up we celebrated with Cafe Rio.  And Jack ate a whole burrito by himself.  I can’t keep up with this kid.  He has a huge appetite lately.  I’m doomed when he’s a teenager.

We went on a double curling date with James and Kerri last weekend.  It was awesome.  I was beyond terrified at first cause the teacher repeatedly was warning us about slipping on the ice and our brain coming out all over.  There has to be a better way to say that without paralyzing people with crippling fear.  I was sure I was going to be one of those people.  Alas I am dramatic! But once I got the hang of it and that I could be as slow as I wanted, I loved it.  We are heading to our second lesson in a couple of weeks.

And finally on Jacob’s birthday we swung by for a short visit.  We love him and my grandpa and can’t wait to see them again someday.
