With the weather warming up we've had many days of opening the windows. The kids opened theirs in the car and, well, you'll see what happened..
With all the snow we haven't been outside nearly as much as usual. Thankfully the kidlets have been going to preschool and Nanny Danielle's but at home we've been finding other ways to get out some energy. Today:
It doesn't snow here they said.. Well, they were definitely wrong! We got about a foot of snow over three days, over 8 inches in 24 hours which came in runner up to the record of 11 inches in 1919!
Savannah loooves it, walking around in it, building a snowman with Daddy and throwing it around. Tyler isn't quite as thrilled - he takes a couple steps in and says "I'm stuck!" even if it's only a couple inches.
We've had the added bonus of beautiful views just from the house let alone while out!
We have been reading a lot more lately since there have been a bunch of rainy afternoons. The books that have been unpacked are like new since most haven't been seen since June.
Tyler has gotten really into reading. So much that he changed his bedtime routine on us. We have our normal routine that's been the same since Savannah was born (it just gets repeated for Tyler).
However, after we leave his room his routine starts. First he plays with whatever toy he took to bed - talking to it, pretending it is falling and helping to save it from death, swinging it around like an airplane.. Next he sits up for a couple minutes followed by crawling to the end of his bed and staring into the camera. It's creepy, it's like he sees us or something else. After a minute or two of being a creepy peeper he gets out of bed, turns on the light then grabs a book and sits in his chair to read. Sometimes it's all reading, sometimes he starts rocking in the chair like crazy (depending on the direction there is a lot of banging). It's actually pretty cute when I don't think about how late he's staying up and that he won't sleep in so he'll be grouchy the next day!
