T is for Train!

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...

Valentines Day

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!

No words...

Taking the plunge.

Finger licking good.

Like mother like daughter?

The best kind of facial hair.

Fun in the snow on Groundhog Day

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.

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.

He's off!

...aaaaand he's rolling over...

Woohoo! Let's do it again!

Heather's turn.

...stay on target...stay on target...

Woohoo, good job! 
Repeat about 50 bajillion times and that was our afternoon. It sure was tiring, but we had a great time!

Indianapolis Children's Museum for MLK Day

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.

Happy Day

We had a particularly happy day today. Here's what it looked like.  :)

The first books Heather read on her own. (With a little help.)

Takes after his mommy and Heather and loves books too!
