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!!!!

Man down.

Most amazing sunset last night. I was helping Mimi wash her hair and all of a sudden the bathroom turned pink. I ran outside and saw THIS!






Also saw the most amazing handmade scarf last night at the Stake Center and chatted this sister up on how she made it. She said she used a technique where you use your arms as the knitting needles (tutorials on youtube!). She graciously let me take a quick pic. It was even better in real life, just stunning!:


Crashed out after a long day at school:

A little Halifax for Mommy after a very hard week (lucky for me, I think Nate likes the accents):


And then today...Man down: Poor Nate has a fever and absolutely no energy or appetite.  These pictures don't quite capture the bleary, droopy eyes. We spent the day cuddling, taking short naps, and watching Sesame Street in the rocking chair.


 Nate likes to sit with his ankles crossed, which gives Auntie Shoody a big kick:


It was 70 degrees this afternoon! So we took a walk and had a snooze:



Carried him in for more snoozing, but it didn't last long. Nate woke up fussing and wanting to cuddle in the rocking chair some more, poor baby!


But now he's back in his crib, but no doubt will be up again soon for another round!
