So sweet

Last night Joshua said, "I love you too, Mommy" for the first time during our bedtime ritual. What wonderful words to hear from your child. It made me smile that's for sure and he says it so cute. Gotta love these mommy moments.

what do you do with an almost four year old with so much energy you can't keep him occupied long enough for a pregnant woman to take a 30 minute rest????? And for that matter, get him to listen to you. He is big into doing the complete opposite these days. Although, he then turns around and becomes the sweetest boy in the world. Can we say bipolar? Nah, maybe not that drastic, but something is going on that's for sure. I just sent him outside to play. Maybe that will help. One would hope. Hope Grammy makes it here safely soon. A weekend with some help is much appreciated.

Snow in Alabama!

We actually had a good amount of snow last Friday (Feb 12th since I am really late posting this). It was beautiful to see the snow falling all day long and stick long enough to play in it. The boys were pretty excited about it. We didn't have the right gloves for them so their little hands got pretty frozen, but for the most part they didn't mind. Friday morning we bundled up and took a little walk around the neighborhood in the snow. Joshua wasn't too keen on walking in it, but did have fun eating the snow after he saw Nicholas do it. Who knows what was in it, I try not to think about that.

Eating snow.

After lunch there was enough snow to build snowmen. I tried to put Joshua down for a nap, but he wasn't having that so I bundled him up and sent him outside with Burt and Nicholas. They had a good time making our snowman and throwing snowballs. After awhile Joshua's hands were freezing and was pretty miserable so I went inside and made hot chocolate for everyone and tried to warm him up. Every so often the boys would go look outside to make sure their snowman was still there. It was cute. All and all a fun experience for them.

Our cute snowman.

After dinner, or maybe before, we went for a little drive around the neighborhood to see all the other creations families had made. Nicholas was very excited about this. It was also nice to see white everywhere. Fun times in Montgomery, Alabama.

Burt's attempt to be funny by making a "mohawk" on his car.

Not as much snow on the ground since it was used for the snowman, but still pretty. Look at the roofs.
