I'm starting to believe that, ironically, I get awesome mom points when I don't plan very far ahead. I hadn't thought about what on earth we were going to do for preschool one day, and because we were learning about the letter t, I thought trains. We colored a train picture, practiced writing t's, read a book about trains, and then I got awesome mom points. I grabbed some masking tape and "built" a train track. The kids flipped out! They loved it. In fact, it's still on our floor, and they still play with it. Yeah...I can be pretty awesome sometimes. :)
We should call Josh the blurry photo kid. I feel like I can't get a photo of him where at least some part of it is blurry. I don't know if it's my lack of photography skills, or that he runs everywhere he goes...or both. Sigh...

We had a great Valentines Day this year. We always love our traditional heart-shaped pizza, and realized this year that it is one of our oldest traditions!
|What our house looked like.|
|Traditional heart shaped pizza|
|Enjoying dessert. Yummy fondue!|
|Taking the plunge.|
|Finger licking good.|
|Like mother like daughter?|
|The best kind of facial hair.|

On Groundhog Day, our yard was covered with lots of powdery snow. Not great for building a snowman, but perfect for a bit of sledding. The kids had a blast.
Repeat about 50 bajillion times and that was our afternoon. It sure was tiring, but we had a great time!
|Thanks to the tripod, we got a pretty good shot of the whole family by our hedge!|
|We went sledding in our "back yard" (you can hardly call it that). Here I'm launching Josh.|
|...aaaaand he's rolling over...|
|Woohoo! Let's do it again!|
|...stay on target...stay on target...|
|Woohoo, good job!|
The Children's Museum of Indianapolis held a day of free admission for Martin Luther King day. We all went up to check it out and had a blast.
|The first exhibit we visited was about life in Egypt. Here is everyone enjoying a local supper.|
|I promise that this is my exaggerated laugh...|
|Josh flashin' his money maker!|
|Daddy and Heather|
|Well, at least Heather understood the significance of American Gothic...|
|...buuuuut it didn't last long.|
|Mommy, Heather, and Joshua by the train|
|Heather really liked scuba diving to recover remains of old wrecked ships.|
