I sit here blogging today, April 10th (I know, I know. I am WAY behind). It has been snowing sporadically for 3 days. It is COLD and there are patches of snow on the grass and branches.
However, December 25th was a beautiful day, perfect for taking their new bikes for a spin.
He LOVES it!
It will take a little bit for him to adjust to the pedals. Meanwhile, we do a lot of pushing and running while encouraging, "Pedal, pedal, pedal, keep pedalling, pedal faster." Add in the abrupt cessation of forward movement every few seconds, and we are both laughing so hard it is hard to remain upright.
Somewhere in there is a boy of mine ☺

Is that really possible already?
"Stockings hung by the chimney with care"...
don't worry, we added a few more.
Didn't the boys select a fantastic tree even though it was dark?
For me it is the little things, the unnoticed, the forgotten, but they remind me of something/someone very special - my Grandma.
The boys love helping me carefully unpack these from amongst the peanuts in their tin.
This project started as the "Nile River", but it took on a life of its own (no pun intended☺) The final result was a great lesson in the prevention of soil erosion.

First Sweet Pea
It was fun growing and eating our own fresh peas in the off-season.

I am pretty sure this was her first time in the sink. We had to keep a close eye on her since she kept slipping, but she seemed to really enjoy it.
Water dripping from her forehead as her hair was rinsed out.
Could she be teething?
There is nothing quite like a fresh, clean baby.
