So much fun!

Cali asks me all kinds of questions now, and she really remembers everything I tell her. The other day she asked me where the sun was, and I said it was sleeping because it's night time. The next day it was cloudy (which is very normal in Michigan), and she asked me where the sun was again, and I said it was hiding behind the clouds. Later that day she said, "Mommy the sun must be scared because it's hiding again."

Date night

This was our night of babysitting as my friends ventured out on a date with their spouses. It's really a great idea to get a free date night almost every weekend. I sure do love it, and my kids love the friend party.
This is when we put a movie in for the end of the two hours. As you can see, they are glued to the TV like they have never seen it before.

A snow park!

I really have never ever been to the park when it was so snowy outside and cold. Neither have my kids, so I guess it was a new experience for all! Isaac loved it and I didn't have a snow bib for Isaac and his pants got all wet. He didn't seem to care at all. He just wanted to touch it and lay in it all the time.

This has been the weather lately in Michigan, cold and snowy. I am glad that the sun hasn't been hiding as much as it did last winter. Cali has been saying the cutest prayers lately. She has been adding in her own requests of blessing Daddy to bring her home a sucker or some dougnuts. We like to call that wishful thinking.

I am so glad that Cali and Isaac are playing together much better. And Isaac still eats everything!

Girls just want to have fun!

Cali's hair in braids at night....... Crazy hair the next day!
Cali loves playing with her friend Ali. She just adores her and asks if she can come over and play everyday. Well, Ali got to come over and play the other day and Cali had way too much fun!

Wise Man

Cali was watching her morning cartoons on PBS and I don't remember which show it was, but it was talking about how you can be anything when you grow up. I then turned to Cali and asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up. Cali thought for a minute and said, "a wise man". Apparently she wants to be smart. I agreed that was a great thing to be!

Christmas Eve....

I was so happy to have good friends these past few holidays with out having family around. Christmas Eve I was able to celebrate since Isaac is now one years old and it was fun going over to the Whites next door and eat some yummy mexican food and play the white elephant game. Thanks Amie and Mike for putting that on at your house!

Merry Christmas!

Our Christmas this year was a fun surprise to have Scotty home by 8:00am. He left really early to do rounds because he was on-call and came back when the kids and I were still in bed. We all got up and had a wonderful Christmas day together as a family!Cali got her carebear she has been asking for from Santa. This is what Canton, Michigan looked like Christmas morning.

Happy Birthday Isaac!

Isaac turned one years old. Yes, the little rascal that thinks he is big enough to do anything has had a birthday. Isaac definitely loved the cupcake as you see it all over his face. I can't believe it's been a year since he was born, it went by all too fast. I love him so much and he really laughs more than any baby I have ever known, it's the cutest thing. Isaac says thanks for his birthday presents and loves playing with all of them!
