we trudged through the snow...

Sam has been sucking on her thumb for the past 2 weeks or so. I caught her about to snooze on the play mat with her thumb in her mouth.
Trying out the bumbo. If you remember when Caden was little, you may remember that he stuck his tongue out all the time...well looks like Sam is going to be the same way.
Laughing in the bumbo
Caden has been trying out the potty lately with some success and some mess.

Two weeks ago Samantha and I made a trip up to Maumee for a baby shower for one of my college friends, Karen. Her and her husband Lane are expecting their first at the end of March. We cannot wait! We had such a good time at the shower. It was great to see Corrie and Lisa and chit chat with them. We didn't get to talk to the momma to be too much, but am sure that we will see her this spring with their new addition!
The only pic that I have from the shower...
Karen's friend from home, then Corrie in black, me and Sam, Karen (momma to be) and Lisa
I saw Nia out in the snow the other day...almost had to check to see if she was ok.
Fun with icicles, right before he dropped it and it broke into a couple pieces. It made him mad every time!

He had enough the other day and just had to get out in the snow, pajamas, rain boots and truck.

Well, in the huge Ohio snowstorm a few weekends back ... we trudged through the snow up to my parents house. I hate to admit that we went and didn't turn around in Sidney. It took us 8 hours together!!!! But it did make the way 3 1/2hr trip home seem like a breeze! We went up to see my cousins on my mom's side that were in town from Baltimore and NYC. Here is a pic of most of us, unfortunately Joe/Amy/Joey couldn't make it because Joey was feeling under the weather. boo.

One of Caden's favorite things lately has been to help me in the kitchen. He loves to stir the ingredients in the bowl and see what is going on with the stove and pretty much anything up on the countertop. Here he is mixing the usual, flour, oatmeal and brown sugar.
oops...did I make that mess?
The boys are getting ready to go outside, not you little Sam.
