Baby, It's COLD outside!

We took Phillip to work this morning and it was 25 degrees outside, freezing wind and snowing. We all had on our winter hats and ran to the car. What better excuse for Starbucks drive through right? Needless to say, we are staying home the rest of the day, making cookies for our cookies exchange at MOPS on Friday, and trying to come up with creative ideas to pass the time. Anybody got any?

Canon and I the other day, he had an animal cracker in his mouth :) This boy is the sweetest thing. Last night he went with Phillip to a big basketball game with all the boys (the girls were at Noah's playing while the mommies were at the Christmas Tea). Phillip said that Canon sat with him and watched 75% of the game, ate his dinner, clapped when everyone else clapped, was SO happy, and loved having that daddy time. He fell right to sleep in the car, woke up when Phillip got the girls, watched them in the car, and at home when Phillip was putting on his jammies he was smiling and laughing and so calm....just waiting to be put to bed. Phillip layed him down and we didn't hear a peep out of him until 7:45am this morning. He usually does not cry to get out of bed until we are getting out of bed. What a polite little cutie pie! Too bad the girls are up anywhere between 6-7am every morning, regardless of what time they went to bed :) Canon is also standing on his own now. We will stand him up and he stays there for up to 10 seconds at a time. He loves clapping for himself while he is standing up so proud!

His new hat. I love it!

We took the kids to a Parents as Teachers event on Saturday called Winter Wonderland. They got to do many kid friendly projects and games.

Canon really liked pouring the rice....or just eating the shovels...

Our house is really coming along! They are putting shingles on the roof this week and we are getting more and more excited with all the progress.

Canon snoozing in the backseat...he missed the whole thing :)

Avery driving the car :)

Atley "smiling" while driving the car. She smiles all the time, but when we tell her to smile for the camera, she does this funny pose. What a cutie.

Here are just a few of the random things the girls have said lately:
Avery: "mommy, your hair is dark." the next day I showered, and she said "mommy, your hair is yellow now"
Atley: she was playing in the bathtub and Phillip walked in, she said "look, it's a giant!"
"get your hats on kids" "I need to take a bathtub"

I can tell 3 is going to be a fun age with lots of talking and many new funny words :)

Thought I'd say "hi" since I'm lurking through your blog. :) My husband and I were friends with Phil in college, and I saw that you had a blog. Congrats on your latest "expectation." I love the name Champ. (Love all your kids' names!)
