what's up

A couple weeks ago when the snow had melted and it was warm out, I took Malcolm to the playground.

Despite all the smiley photos, he didn't want to stay long because he wanted someone to play with!

Here's a dinosaur mask he made.

He did this dinosaur picture at school. I took a photo since I didn't think the pasta would stay on forever.

Malcolm insists on helping me with the dishes after lunch each day. Daddy even bought him a pair of rubber gloves.

Jane found some ice to sled on in the backyard!

One day we went for a walk in the snow.

Malcolm enjoyed Daddy reading The Hobbit.

Jane did too. She is sick in this picture and never changed out of her pjs. Shortly after, she fell asleep!

skating in the park

We've been waiting for years to be able to skate in our town's park, but every time we've tried it's been closed. Malcolm and I checked it out at lunchtime and it was open! We were the only ones there.

As Leigh requested, here are photos of me skating.

After Jane got off the bus, we went back for more! Several other families had the same idea.

Malcolm has been staying up until 10pm recently. Hopefully tonight he'll fall asleep earlier after all the fresh air and exercise today!

sledding with friends

We met our friends Rosalie and Nolan at a golf course to go sledding last weekend. We had a great time!

The cocoa with marshmallows Lindsay brought was a big hit!

fuzzy visitor

Jane was happy Westie visited her room!

we found a pond!

We noticed this frozen pond when we were driving past it the other day, so we thought we'd check it out on New Year's Day. It was great! There are some serious ice-skaters who keep it clear of snow. There were hockey players, kids, families and a few dogs on the ice.

Jane hadn't forgotten how to skate at all!

The best part for me was the price: free. The kids enjoyed their cocoa afterwards.

New Year's Eve

Jane and Malcolm really enjoyed staying up a few hours late on New Year's Eve. Daddy and Jane did her new World puzzle.

Malcolm played with Magformers.

The kids played Rat-A-Tat-Cat.

Later we ate nachos and apple crisp!

shopping trip

The kids had a fun time going to the toy store and book store to spend their Hanukkah money from Nana!

Jane got a horse and a book and Malcolm got a Transformer and a triceratops.
