Arts & Crafts

Jacob asked to do a craft this week so I pulled out some stuff for him. Turns out all he really wanted to do was cut. He actually did ok with the scissors, but did a lot more "ripping" than cutting.

Deep in concentration.
Norah was just a spectator.
He got those stickers at FreshCo. They were REALLY hard to get off his hands that night.
You can see all his "cut" pieces in the box. I think he would have done this all day if I let him!

Now that it's getting cold out...

We really have to bundle up to go to the bus in the mornings! I think I'll have to add at least 10 minutes onto our getting ready time once we have to add even MORE clothing!

Not sure if she likes the extra layers yet...
Jacob interrupts the photo shoot.

Not impressed with the hat. 

And a big blanket.

Looking Cute


(Minus the wet spot from drool), here's Norah in an outfit that she wore to church recently. I love the little baby tights, they are so cute!

One cool baby....

Norah sporting some cool shades from Scott's childhood. 
What she looked like under the glasses.
It's amazing what you can do to a sleeping baby...haha.

Not quite big enough....

Norah is still quite small. She actually smaller than some babies are at birth! That being sad, she's really strong. She's got great neck control and can support her weight on her legs. So we pulled out the exersaucer to try and give her something else to do....

She's just not big enough yet.
She can hang out in there but she can barely see out!
I guess she can watch TV.
The red thing is a toy that Scott gave her to play with...
Guess we'll put it away for now and wait until she grows a bit more!

Buzz Lightyear

Classic picture face.
Aunt Pamela sent this shirt for Jacob's birthday. He loves it and walks around all day calling himself "Buzz".

He looks awfully old in this picture!
(The blue closet in their room makes a great picture backdrop!)

Jacob's Birthday Celebrations IV

Jacob managed to squeeze one more birthday celebration out of us when my parents came to visit!

He's a pretty intense gift opener.
Look at that concentration!
More candles to blow out!
Blowing action.
We were kind of sick of cake so I made these super yummy chocolate chip bars!
More gifts!
Logan and Grandpa counting the gifts and letting Grandma know so she
can get the same amount for Logan! Haha!
He kept saying "WOWIE!" when he opened them.
Sporting his new birthday pjs that night before bed.

Jacob's Birthday Celebrations III

We had a busy evening on the day of Jacob's birthday since we had cake to eat, gifts to open and Meet the Teacher night at Logan's school! Luckily, we fit it all in!

Looking excited about his gifts!
A hockey stick!
And a puck!
Methodically opening the next gift.
I think he's glaring at Logan's "helping" hand here...
A police car!
"Woo Woo!"
A failed attempt at a picture of all three of them.
Blowing out his candles.

Sibling Love

For those of you who can't get enough of the's hard to get one good one of the three of them together!
A good one of the boys but not Norah.
Good one of Jacob, ok of Norah but Logan isn't really looking.
Ummm, ok.
Actually a decent one!

Visiting Storybook Gardens

The day before Scott and Jamie's wedding, we met up with Aunt Pamela and Great Grandma and took a trip to Storybook Gardens. Pamela and I visited Storybook Gardens several times when we were young with our grandma so it was great to be able to take the kids there with Grandma.

Logan and Aunt Pamela.
Scott climbed to the top of the spider web.

Pamela wanted to get up with him too.
Jacob and Logan tried to make their way up...
Logan didn't get far!
It's hard to see with the sun, but they both made it!

Aunt Pamela needed some help getting down!
Recreating an old picture!
On the Ferris wheel.
Norah was there too!
We also spent a bunch of time at the waterpark but Aunt Pamela took pictures there so I don't have any! It was a great day though!
