We've been doing play dough, getting out the new baby toys (you know all our toys that are about 6 month age..I've been getting them out and the boys are in love with them all over again). Making those indoor snowmen from Make and Takes. Marie is still not mobile. She takes 1 crawl step-and falls on her belly..but one day she'll get it. She eats baby food really well--
We had the missionaries over last night and he was amazed that she just was ready for each bite and ate it with no problems. Her favorite is Ham & Pineapple with rice..sounds GROSS if you ask me..but whatever. They were the Spanish speaking missionaries..it was fun to have them over-Eric got to speak some Spanish..even though he gets to do that at a daily basis at work now..but it was good. And good to have an excuse to get the house clean! Not that we're slobs..but it's just good to have company over.
Yesterday it was a bit warmer, but I think it's been snowing all day today--not sticking but still..good grief. Brandon is so excited for his Birthday--I've told him it's when it's warmer out so he gets disappointed when it's snowing because he knows it's not his birthday yet. I'm not even sure why he wants his birthday-there's no toys he's dying for or anything. He is in LOVE with Logan's birthday cake he got! He keeps asking how many more nights until his birthday--poor guy! We did have a "birthday cake" for him yesterday. He wanted to blow out candles, but I said -it's nobody's birthday but we've enjoyed the cake.
Tyler keeps talking about how much fun it is at his friends' house and how they have this, or he saw that..good imagination I guess..always thinking of a happier place-but he's deffinately making it up by now--he doesn't have any friends here yet.
Oh yeah-we got a coconut at the store yesterday..Brandon was SOOO excited to open it and get the milk out. I told him it was up to Daddy when he got home..so he tried it--didn't care for the coconut itself..it was too hard. But the milk even though his face didn't look so hot he said he liked it and that we couldn't throw away the rest of it. So that was sort of fun.
One Day Brandon wanted to help at dinner time, he put everything on the table that we needed..I was so proud of him-and he as so happy! That night Daddy didn't come home until the kids were in bed..but he saw that there was a place for him at the table..it was just so sweet.
