So we'll start with a few random pictures from the end of January. I realized that I take far too many cute pictures of Jake and not enough of the girls, so here are a few.
And one of them just being, as Sam would put it, ridiculous!
Great Grandma came to visit quickly and we all had fun. The girls had her tossing the football!
And this is what happens when Jake wakes up and I can't get in there fast enough. One of the girls will go in and entertain him until I get there. I love it! Sam always walks in and says "Heeey Buddy!"
Since the weather got bad and we've been stuck inside a lot we've been trying to find fun things to keep us active and occupied. We've done a lot of dancing...
Jake is getting really good at using his walker...
we had conversations with Nana and Grandpa before the snow and ice came...
We 'ice skated' on the driveway and sidewalk because it was that bad. Didn't even leave a footprint!
"This is my crazy sister, isn't she weird?"
We learned how to play dominoes. They are good and they are also learning how to add, sort of, using both halves of each tile. Catherine lost the first two games she ever played, so when she finally won she celebrated soccer style, leaping off the chair, running around in a circle, and ending on the floor waving her arms and legs in the air and squealing. It was hilarious and no one told her how to do it.
Even Jake got out for a little, but without mittens he went back in pretty quickly.
and because my road is still an icy mess they went sledding down it.
Hard to believe we had a picnic on the deck a week and a half ago. Spring, where are you!?
