Surprise, Poppy!

Chris may or may not have been gently urging me to make a new blog post for, oh, a year now. lol :) This is a surprise for Pa because he's been the best Pa in the world for the last 10 years!!!! Here's our great Pa in action lately!!! :D

 
That's Pa up there with his Mimi, and here's me and the kids waiting for Pa after church for a whole hour! We didn't know where he was, but he was "home" teaching. I just can't get this guy to stop fellowshipping! What a guy!

 
 
Further evidence of a great Pa at work: He takes his kiddos (and his wife!) to CoCo Key and gives his Natey a smooch!
 

 
 
He snoozes with his Natester!
 
 
AND snugs up with his Mimi!
 
 
What ELSE does out Pa do??? You mean you want MORE??? Well, he takes us all out for days of culture at the YALE art museums and then for chow at Crackle Barrel!
 





 
 
He makes helps Nate make pancakes pretty much every Saturday!


 
 
Treats us to WWII war plane stuff (every summer)...




 
 
Oh and he takes Jake too :)


 
Can we just take a minute to acknowledge how handsome Maxwell is? Thanks :)

 
 
He comes merrily to his mother-in-law's for various occasions (and brings Jake):


 
 
He takes his wife out on the town!
 

 
 
And takes us all to go eagle spying!!!
 






 
 
So I think this great Pa deserves some more blogging! I promise to start blogging again just for you, Pa! xoxoxo Because you really are the best!

Just some random stuff.





We finally got the chair I ordered a million years ago. We finally have something in our house that wasn't free because someone didn't want it anymore! Winning!

Nate, show the good people our new chair!






Also, the two best friends:




AND, well, I'm actually not sure...






Love the cover of Bookmarks this month. I wish I was doing this: sitting by myself and reading in the middle of the snow with only the occasional driver to disturb me, and getting paid for it. That looks like heaven.



And, cutest baby I've seen lately besides my own little Natey. Look at those cute little rolls! Oh my cuteness!

You may think you've seen cute...

...BUT have you ever seen Nate standing up in a big boy tub???


 A full moon on the full moon :)




 He never drinks the water, he just loves to pour it over his chin. It's really cute!

 PA! Put down Mommy's Goodreads and watch all my water tricks!!!




 This is what happened before the tub: A CRAZY DINNER!


Nate is eating bread and butter pickles, garlic mashed potatoes, and homemade pizza :)









Yes Gramma, that's the blanket I asked for for Christmas a few years ago. I got about a week out of it before Maxwell just had to have it. I thought he'd get tired of it but he never has!



Homemade hedgehogs from old paperback books. Mimi's is on the left, Maxwell's lost the eyes, but we're planning on gluing on some googly ones.





The other day I woke up to a light dusting of snow that stayed on the ground for the whole day! Of course two days later it was 70 degrees (see previous post)!



Also of note: a clean clean, shiney sink (why can't it just stay like that for a little while???) and a pretty view of the town :)



Looking forward to MUCH MORE SNOW!!!!
