my adorable children....

Harry fell asleep in his chair... Isn't he cute? It's amazing how angelic a two-year old can look... We built the coolest snow-fort EVER!!! It's really just a shoveled out pit in the yard, but Harry seems to like it!

It even has a chair!

Harry was trying to show Emma how to roll over. Can't you tell how thrilled Emma is?

skiing pictures

Well, as you can tell, we had an absolute blast this last week!!! We had a great time hanging out with Jon, Lisa, and Erin and Jon's mom, Anita, who was an amazing help and a huge blessing to us by watching the kids so all the adults could go skiing. Whistler is one of the most beautiful places we've ever been and we can't wait to go back!!

funny Harry moments

Yesterday we were driving home from Whistler and stopped for lunch at little burger place. Harry, of course, had a hot dog and french fries and they put lettuce and an orange on his plate. He sat there for a minute and just stared at his plate with this weird look on his face. Finally, Jay says, "Harry, what's wrong?" Harry looks at Jay and says, " Ewwww. Grass." and hands the lettuce to Jay!
Also, he came to tattle on Jay last night for pushing him and I asked him if he was okay. He said he was, but kept saying, "Daddy pushed Hay." So, I asked him if he had broken his leg, and he said, "Yes," and then proceeded to hold out his leg for me and said, "Daddy break-ed Hay's leg."
What a little turkey!!

Jan 18

Well, Auntie Katie is gone.... We had a wonderful and exciting 3 weeks with her and were all sad to see her leave, especially her reading buddy, Harry. I think they read ALL the books on his shelf at least 10 times while she was here! :) Jay will be home today and we're off to Vancouver in the morning, and Whistler on Sunday!!! Whoo-hoo!! It feels like we've been planning this trip forever and it's finally here. We're going with the Stevens family- some of you may remember Jon and Lisa from our wedding, and now they have a beautiful 1 year old Erin, whom we're very excited to meet. And of course, Harry will probably make her his newest girlfriend before the trip is over! ;) We're very excited about all the cool things to do in Whistler- ice skating, sleigh rides, the Lego-room, outdoor swimming pools and hot-tubs, and, of course, the skiing!! Hopefully, we'll have LOTS of great pictures and memories when the week is over! Emma cuddling with her bunny.

Harry and Emma Pictures

Mommy and her adorable kids. :)
Emma doing her Elvis impersonation.

After her bath

All snuggled in her pretty new towel from the Beahans.

Harry's girlfriend came over last weekend so her parents could have a well-deserved dinner out. Harry was SO thrilled and they had a pretty good time, Susy is such a sweet girl and just loves Emma. She's also newly potty-trained and we're SO proud of her. And really hoping that it rubs off on Harry soon!

Susy and her mommy, Linda, baked and frosted cookies for us. They were delicous!!
