Just a few more pics

Loving the opportunity to play in his very own "park" right in our own backyard!

Playdough and snacktime (like my creation?)

 This was Jake's masterpiece (with some help from Mommy)---he calls it "Daddy"!

 Aren't Big Boy Beds wonderful? At least they are to play on/read on/jump on...But sleeping in? Not a chance. Any helpful ideas on this one?

Silver Frost

A few weeks back, it was incredibly cold here. Not so unusual for the winter in Colorado (I I said, the weather here is wierd), but what I did find unique was how any moisture on the trees and plants froze solid. I think it's called a Silver Frost and it was gorgeous! Enjoy the pictures.

Christmas Activities 2010

We decorated a gingerbread house this year. I'll admit that Costco was really the architect, but we did the exterior design. It ended up being  full of fun color, and a tree, gingerbread man, & a snowman on the front porch completed our decorative little model home.

Oooh! The anticipation for sugar cookies to come out of the oven!
 Some of our artistic creations :)

  Suprises from Santa on Christmas morning!
 The only picture I have of Jake wearing a helmet on his bicycle. I'm not sure why, but he won't hear of putting it on. I guess he'll have to wait to ride his bike...

I'm a Big Kid Now!!

Jacob is officially sleeping in a big boy bed. The proof is in the picture. He only got out of bed once tonight (two minutes after we said the final goodnight, he walks out of his room and says to me, "What you doing?") Heaven help us, our little boy is growing up.
