Where has this past month gone?  It feels like it was swallowed up in snow storms and hibernating through seriously cold weather!

We had our first real snow this month, totally somewhere around 9 or 10 inches (not official numbers)…then another storm later in the week totally 8 inches…then 3-5 more inches this week!  The kids had a great time playing in the snow for a few days, but Abraham kept getting a rash and hives from the cold and everyone started getting runny noses, so we went into hibernation.  You know, baking, reading, playing Wii, watching too much tv, etc.  I’m glad we got some snow because it’s so beautiful and the kids love playing in it, but I’m also glad that we don’t live someplace that has snow all winter.   (Sorry, Gradens!)

Felicity loved the snow, but kept taking off her gloves.  😦IMG_0690

She cruised over to check on her “bock-bocks”.IMG_0699

Since I didn’t keep up with blogging as much as I would have liked, I’m going to share some random pictures that tell about our month.  🙂

Sammy’s journal entry about his dream room.  As you can tell, he really enjoys reading and Lego’s at this point in his life.  Notice the picture–behind his bed is a giant bookshelf with a ladder so he can climb up to choose books straight out of bed.  (He also included a lamp by his bed so he could read late at night after his brothers are asleep.)

We have had some very nice afternoons recently, so we’ve tried to get out to parks often.  The kids are very sweet with Felicity and love having her play with them more. (Sammy and Eli holding Felicity’s hands with Abraham walking in front.)

We have attempted to rebuild a lot of old Lego sets.  Eli is very much at home when building, and Charlie says he is even better than him at finding lost pieces or following detailed instructions for hours.   Their most difficult set was 1,200 pieces!

The boys have been doing some creative drawings on our white board this winter.  They start out with some type of inspiration by Charlie or Sammy, then they spend hours adding creatures, super heroes, animals, explosions, etc. (Sammy, Eli, Abe, l-r)

Eli wrote a free verse poem for school.  I love how it sounds like Eli, very sweet and tender.

Charlie has been preparing himself for the day when Felicity brings home a boy she wants to date.

Felicity really likes to put chapstick on herself, maybe why Charlie is starting to get nervous about the future.  ha ha.
