January 31, 2010

Absolutely -not- eating bits of PlayDoh from last night, no matter how much it may look like it. Ahem.

Arrr! She's a pirate!

Chatting with Granny.

Out to play in the remains of our latest snowstorm.

At first I foolishly thought I could keep Kate inside with me while David was shoveling the driveway, but she was having none of that.


Sweet and bundled.

Grace's first snow angel! Well, the first one that I could see, anyway.

Making another.


Tugging a tremendous branch and for lord knows what reason.

Looking at the buds on a fallen twig.

Clearing the bushes.

Stopping Kate as she tries to run down the street.

Here are some photos that David took while I was out running errands this morning. These guys had so much fun.

After naps we all enjoyed some painting and PlayDoh. We were so happy to have Kate painting with water -- she consumes far less of her crafting medium and makes a minimal mess because we only give her a bit of water a a time. It was a revelation.

These guys were just so cute at breakfast this morning.

We had someone come clean the air ducts in our house and Grace had a little moment of panic that he was going to be scrubbing her ducks but calmed down once I explained the process.

The noise was pretty overwhelming, though and she sought refuge in a little fort behind the couch.

Barnyard detectives! Oh hi! I'm Chickiepoo. I'm Fluff. And this is Fuzzball, our baby brother. Hi! We're using a magnifying glass to look at things really close up. Whoa, we'll have to do our detective skills and figure out what they are. Will you be a detective and help us out mom? Great. What could it be? It's brown and swirly. and it's moving really slowly Chickie Poo. What do you think it is? It's a... snail! Hello little snail! See you next time! Now let's go have our tea party, little fluff!
