In the snow

We didn't get any of the 2nd winter storm here in Garden City. It moved across much of the state, but didn't really get going until east of us. We did make it outside after the snow last week, and I tried to grab a few pictures to commemorate Logan's first experience. 

He loved it, of course. 
He crawled all over. I could not get his gloves to stay on (not really made for the snow, and not really made for sneaky little balls of baby hands.) 
 Throwing snow on Casey?
 Of course, he went for the bush. he kept trying to crawl in it. 
And there's Makenah's coat...not on her body...
 Making a mini snowman. 

 He had to make due with plastic bags over his tennis shoes. I could never find snow boots that small...Not that it would be a good investment anyway...his feet are growing so fast!
 There were tears from both parties when their time ended. I had to take Logan in after awhile because his hands were freezing, and he wouldn't keep those gloves on. Overall, a good first experience. 

Makenah really REALLY did not want to come in. Major tears. 
"I just want to play in the snow! I just want to play in the snow!" 
We'll be out as soon as more snow comes, I'm sure. 


Our baby is walking. 
Watching his little body toddle around ranks near the top of the preciousness-chart. 
He is sturdy and quick. I know he wants to run. 
Soon things will be moving even faster around here!

Instagram Wednesday

I need some kind of catchy name for the weekly phone picture download. 
It's Wednesday, and here are some of the latest happenings. 

She's always squirming around while I strap in Logan.
 Good looking guys before church. 
 Ha! Opening Valentine's Day presents....guess I should have had them sit a little closer!
 Pink heart pancakes for breakfast.
Wax paper/iron heart creations. 
 Puzzle time.
 Bustin' a move. 
 The cutest wave...when they first learn, and it's a real small wave with the fingers, and it often points at themselves. 
 Noodles at the local Vietnamese restaurant. 
 Snack outside on a beautiful day.
 While we were out, this drove by our house! 
 I'm always trying to think of things that Makenah would enjoy doing. She likes to be busy, and she likes to make things. This turned out to be a great was cooking, but she also felt like she was making art. Dipping pretzels in chocolate and then different colored sprinkles.
 And another one...we did apple stamping, and then she decided she would like to just go ahead and paint the apple. Ha.
 Since Makenah was a baby I've been meaning to make her a bow holder. I finally got it done. I always liked the ones I saw that used picture frames with strips of cute ribbons running down. Then, you can just clip all the bows on there. She's got quite the collection...that frame is big!
 Cute kids!!!!!
 She wants to help me do EVERYTHING right now. She even insisted on putting the laundry in the washer, adding the soap and turning it on. She said, "Okay clothes, its time for you to get a bubble bath!" 
 Grandma and Grandpa's house. 
 She's into lotion right now. It was cute watching her lather up her legs and feet. And, you get a peek at the swimsuit cover-up making an appearance that day.
And, here are my three Valentine's Day pictures. I practically begged Makenah to sit by Logan and let me take their picture. She refused. Later, when they got in the same area of the room, I tried but Logan was heading away quick. 
Couldn't get them together, so took them separate. She wouldn't look at me though!

Quick trip to Colorado

We made a weekend trip to to Colorado a couple weekends ago. We stayed two nights in Woodland Park with Bryan's grandparents, and then one night in Denver. Granna and Grandad took such good care of us while we stayed at their house, and we also go to do some fun things together in Woodland Park. 
Saturday morning we went to a locally famous donut shop called the Donut Mill. The donuts were huge and very good, and we had fun hearing stories from a very experienced baker who worked there. 
 Having fun! Makenah really likes donuts, and it was a treat to get to see so many in the display case, and get to choose whichever one she wanted. 
 This sideways donut picture(oops) shows my donut that seems to go on forever. My eyes deceived me in the case, and I was thinking it was 2 separate ones. Ha! She pulled it out and my mouth dropped open.
After donuts, we headed to the Dinosaur Resource Center to look around. They had a lot of neat things to see and I think Makenah enjoyed seeing all the dinosaur bones. Logan did great as we made our way through. 

Opening wide.
 I didn't get my camera out for the rest of the trip, but the next day we all headed into Denver and went to Bryan's Uncle Steve and Aunt Cristal's house, had lunch with them and the cousins and did some shopping. That evening we stayed in Denver and had a sweet night together just our little family.
