Grace Group Lunch

On Jan. 22 we had a Grace Group lunch at our house.  Our Grace Group is a group from church that gets together on Wednesday nights to discuss the previous Sunday's sermon.  It has been such a joy to get to know all these folks and I am so thankful to be a part of this group! We had french dip sandwiches with yummy salad, pineapple and brownies! Yum!

Just had to throw in one of Addison curled.  She's so cute that way!

Island Fort!

Our kitchen island (an $80 craigslist find...i know, unbelievable!) is perfect for making a little fort! G had so much fun crawling in and out and jumping around. It was so cute!
 Look at that little foot!

Napping with Baby Girl

G and N really love to play in the crib together.  She had been sleeping, but woke up and G wanted to go say hi!

Winter Swinging

Even in the winter, G loves swinging on his swing set!

Little Boys

One day in January we had a little play day with the little boys! It is so much fun to see them grow up!

Elephants and Tigers, Oh My!

So, for the national championship we went to my Mom and Dad's house to eat dinner and watch the game.  Gardner wasn't sure who to cheer for since his parents are for opposite teams, so he played with the tiger and the elephant!
Then he took his first bubble bath in Snookie's jacuzzi tub! He was a little shocked at the jets at first, but ended up loving it! It was quite enjoyable to watch him having such a blast.

 The opposing brother-in-laws:


 Oh, Max, I'm not doing anything...don't mind me...pounce!!!!
 Wa hahahahaha!!!

Uncle "An-een"'s Party and a Glow Stick Bath

Allen had a party with his friends last weekend and we went over for dinner before.  It was a lot of fun for G to play in the garage while it was all lit up.  Allen did a great job in his first DJ role. :)

 Gardner really enjoys his glowstick baths! I played with my camera settings to get these pictures, but it didn't work out that well... working on it.

It's not so much the zoo, as it's the people we go with!

Rachel was home from Samford and she came over to hang out with us! Gardner had a lot of fun with her! 
 The Polar Bear was super active.  It was awesome!
 We ran into some friends near the Polar Bears too!
 Thanks for going to the zoo with us, Miss Rachel!

Potty? Maybe?

Gardner is showing interest in the potty. He tries to go, but can't quite make it! It doesn't help that he has so many clothes on in this frigid time of year.  But we are doing lots of undressing and dressing anyway!  Hopefully this will lead to a potty trained boy soon! (Well, maybe in the next year!)

Snookie and the Playground

 On another unseasonably warm day we spent the morning at the park with Snookie!

 What a beautiful, bright blue sky!!
 Loving swinging with Snookie!
The saucer swing was decently accepted this time.  He cracked a few smiles but the experience did end, as usual, with a few tears!
