Dayna (my sister-in-law in the ever so stylish hat I bought her for Christmas) and I spent lots of time chillin’ with our boys. Drew is small and nimble. He is all over the place crawling and using the furniture to stand and walk. Kole is bigger and hmm…how should I put it…less nimble?
He’s doing the army crawl, but for the most part is pretty content to be held or to sit and watch Drew (his younger cousin) crawl circles around him.
But oh am I ever in love with this little guy. I don’t care if he doesn’t walk until he’s two. In fact, come to think of it, I quite prefer it that way. :)
We celebrated my brother’s birthday and my girls especially enjoyed the cake and presents. You can see the finger marks in the cake from two little ones who just couldn’t wait five more seconds to dig in.
And it snowed!!! So exciting! It never snows where we come from and it rarely snows in Southern Utah. My mom and I were so excited to wake up early one morning to find snow softly falling. I ran and woke the girls and they flew down the stairs and out the front door in their pajama’s.
They tasted the snow. And then danced in the snow. And yes. We all had a big old IT’S SNOWING party! I know that this isn’t exciting to most of you and our snow storm was pretty weak and misty and may not have even stuck to the ground, but it was snow none the less. And we were thrilled to see if for the first time this winter. Addison knew right off why it had snowed in the night. Because she was wearing her snow flake pajama’s, of course!
Since the snow brought with it some chilly temperatures (yes, 55 degrees is chilly to us) we decided to stay in and do some crafts. I opened my mom’s craft cupboard and gave her the look. The look that says “are you kidding me mom….how are we supposed to find crafts in here?” Then she gave me the look. The look that says “I knew you’d be appalled enough to clean out my cupboard. That’s why I sent you to it in the first place.”
So of course some organizing was in order. I pulled everything out of the cupboard and got to work categorizing. Isn’t that the best word? Categorizing. I can’t say or think that word without smiling.
much better. Supplies are organized and easily accessible. Organizing is a perfect stay inside while it’s snowing activity, don’t you think?
The next day we went shopping and while my mom bought matching soccer outfits for two of the men in her life, Dayna and I found clothes and home decor in all sorts of bright colors. When we loaded our stuff in the back of the car we decided it looked like a spring explosion! I’m so so excited for March!
And one of my favorite things about visiting Utah. With mine and Kenny’s parents in town we have the best babysitters around…and you just can’t beat their hourly rate. The four of us snuck away to dinner one night and it was so fun catching up. THANK YOU to my parents and Kenny’s for spending so much time with the kiddos this weekend so we could play. My girls adore all of their grandparents. And Kenny and I think the four of them are pretty swell too. :)
A weekend full of baby watching, birthday celebrating, snow fall partying, craft cupboard organizing, home show viewing, Chinese food dining, spring time shopping, and LOTS of family bonding.
My very favorite kind.
