Video Clips

Here are a couple of links for recent video clips of the kids.
(Just copy and paste the link into your browser and it should take you right to it.)

This first one is of Halie.  We spent a couple of weeks learning about the seasons during her school time and I had her learn these little songs and use her artwork to do a skit for Daddy.


And this one is of Burl pointing out the different body parts he knows so far.


Hope you enjoy!

Here's a skim through of the month of January.

Early in the month, amazingly enough, we actually had a day that was warm enough to go outside without risking frostbite.  The kids enjoyed the play time and fresh air.

Those chubby cheeks and mischievous blue eyes melt this mama's heart every single day.

Little Man was wandering around aimlessly one day while I was cooking dinner and I could tell he was bored so I sat him at the table and taped down a coloring sheet and let him go at it.

It kept him occupied for a good 15 minutes or so.

The little stinker found his old pacifier somewhere and was getting a kick out of making Halie and I giggle.

On days that we're staying home with no plans of going anywhere I let Halie dress herself.  She comes up with some very interesting and very colorful outfits!  : )

Mid-January found us inviting several of Halie's church friends over for a Snowman Party.  They had a great time and Halie loved having friends here to play with.  If you'd like to see more details and pictures of that party you can see that here: {Snowman Party}.

This picture captures two of Burl's favorite things right now.  He loves that book, and that picture in particular.  He carries it around everywhere and just looks and looks at that picture.  He's also at the stage of loving to put balls and other sorts of trinkets into bowls and boxes.  He goes around the house collecting treasures.

There's just something about overalls that I adore.  SO stinkin' cute!!

This is a pair of corduroys that I think came from a friend, can't remember for sure.

She loves her little brother!

I found this pair of Carhartt overalls at Goodwill for $2.  Again, SO stinkin' cute!  And, of course, Robert loves them.

Halie still enjoys dressing up as Pinkalicious a couple of times a week.  In this picture she's showing off her pink heart shaped ring.

Robert received a set of stick-on mustaches in his Christmas stocking when we were in Florida.  They ended up in Halie's dress up box and one day she wanted to try them out so we were being silly.

The kids are usually on their own to come up with some kind of entertainment while I'm busy cooking dinner most evenings and one evening I discovered them doing this.

Burl was squealing in delight as she pulled him around the house.  (That's the step stool that belongs in the bathroom turned upside down with Gretchen's leash attached to it).

Well, that pretty well sums up January.  See ya again soon.  : )
