Freezing Our Way into 2017

Story told by: Lainey

We have had nothing but snow for the past two months! We can’t recall a day where it hasn’t snowed. We’re doing our best to stay warm indoors, and bundling up when we head outside.

Pizza night is always a great way to stay warm and cozy.

Daddy and I went on a date to the women’s basketball game last weekend. One of our friend’s caught our multiple appearances on the big screen. Daddy and I also competed in the halftime contest down on the court against two other daddies and their daughters. The biggest news of the night, though, is that while I was on the court, I gave Butch a high five!! When Mommy asked me about it, I said, “I saw him coming toward me, and I said to myself, ‘I can do this.’ Then I gave him a high five.”

Go Cougs! The women had a great game, and beat the #9 UCLA team!

Mommy and Daddy also got a date night. Mommy is working SUPER hard to potty train Henry, and it’s been a slow process (nowhere near as quickly as me), so Mommy needed a night out (complete with flowers from Daddy, and wine).

I’ve been trying to earn some extra money to buy a special set of markers. Mommy is having me do some extra tasks around the house (more than my normal chores) to earn this money. While helping peel carrots for dinner one night, I said, “Making dinner is hard work. But you know what’s even more work than that? Having brothers.” Mommy definitely agreed with this statement.

We do lots of dancing in our house, but lately I’ve been requesting a formal audience for it. I didn’t want music for this dance as I wanted to make my own music. (Please take note of my stage decorations in the background.)

The boys wanted to follow with their own performances.

We have over three feet of snow, so playing outside in it is a must.

While Henry and I played, Brody was a good shoveling helper for Mommy.


The plows have created some awesome snow piles around our house!

We got the sled out to try sledding down the snow piles.

Now that we’re back from our trip, Taylor (our favorite babysitter!!!!) met up with us at dance class to give us our Christmas presents. She’s the sweetest! (Brody’s leg is pictured as he is running away to throw a temper tantrum.) Thank you, Taylor!!

Coloring is very popular in our house (especially since our outside time is limited right now).

We did our first Valentine’s Day craft today!

Brody insisted on getting his picture taken with his craft, but then refused to show it to Mommy.

There we go….got a sneak peek! (This has Brody’s name on it, but it really should say “Brody’s craft as done by Mommy while Brody licked the paint off his fingers.”)
