Winter Snapshots

I am entirely grateful that I spend most my days with my favorite two little munchkins. Soon enough they will be school age and I will be back in the real world working a full time job with full time stresses. For now though, we'll play a bit longer and enjoy making tough decisions like should we make an obstacle course or slide down the stairs in sleeping bags first?
Twice in her life Madelyn has put on a tutu. This time it was off in 30 seconds. The cowboy hat stayed on, however, and she added a pair of cowboy boots.

Paper airplanes on a rainy day.

The bookstore on yet another rainy day.

Story time. Madelyn is off camera climbing up the puppet stage. At this point I am getting glares from other parents and the owner of the bookstore but I'm more concerned with capturing this sweet Patrick moment for eternity than being a good parent.

This girl loves to paint and get messy like it's her job. Absolutely one of the things I love most about her.

He did about 6 layers of paint on this paper then used the back of the paint brush to practice spelling his name.
Patch liked that if the letter wasn't perfect he could easily wipe it away with the paintbrush.

Arctic Rescuers on a mission to find lost animals with our flashlights in the dark. We saved a lot of animals that evening (and cleaned up the house a little too).

Stories and snuggles
Making jellyfish in a bottle.
Patrick told me his didn't exactly look like a jellyfish but for a pretend one it was pretty good.

Reading books in the blanket fort.

Jumping in puddles.

So wonderful---reminds me of the stichery in your nursery when you were a baby Angie......

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait til tomorrow
For babies grow up we learn to our sorrow
So quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep

Such a blessing to see you and Toby enjoy parenthood. Love Meme
