christmas run

My favorite part of Christmas was running around the Marina with my family. It was a warm winter day and Tim made me run real fast.

gingerbread house

I am not typically a gingerbread house maker - which you will believe as you see my pictures - but I decided it was time for Grant and I to try our hands at a little Christmas house. Graham crackers, frosting, M&M's, and "mushrooms" (gum drops). The craft went a little like this:

Get the stuff

build a roof and take it off

put in a door

gum drop the new roof

watch the house fall down

push the wreck into a single story house

And fun is had all around! It's been a good snowy day!

oh my babes! I love you!

a glimpse of grant

Coming home from grocery shopping Grant says, "I am gonna be a paleontologist and look at the King Crabs. Also if I have a sword I'm gonna cut their legs off!"

it's christmas time

We cut our first Christmas tree today! I've heard some terrible stories this season but we went in after a big snow melt and we had no problems at all. Our favorite family the Bjurs came with us which makes things all the more fun. Our tree is perfect for our little house all decorated. Now the season has begun for us. I think we have a tradition here!

little trouble maker

Things heard repeatedly this week:

"Daddy, put the babes in her room cuz she's eating my toys."

"Daddy, put the baby in her room cuz she's in the way of the TV."

"Babes, don't look at me when I'm eating, alright?"

"Babes, I love you but you have to do what I say."

"Mommy, put the babes to bed cuz she's screaming too loud."

"Daddy, put the baby in her room cuz she's coming over and gonna eat my food."

"The babes is gonna fall over!"

"Babes, stop doing that!"

"Mommy, get the baby outta here cuz she's touching my toys."

splash time

Bath time is fierce these days when you add Calli to the mix.



8 months. My baby is advanced! (I think) I have a video of Grant crawling at about 10 months. If nothing else she's cute!!
