The snow brought us even closer to our loved neighbors. We all were out digging not only each other out, but all the cars that got stuck on our street and there were a lot of them!! Carter always wanted to get his own shovel out and "help."
This video is when Carter about died and went to heaven, a UPS truck got stuck right in front of our house. The whole time I was getting him in his snow clothes as quick as I could, he kept yelling out the front door, "Wait for me truck, wait for me!!"
Good thing Carter was out there. He kept directing traffic and telling everybody what to do. He was invaluable! :)
Finally, they had to bring in a big tractor and a tow truck to get him out.
Valentines Day. I wanted to get a picture because we looked so cute and holiday coordinated. Our favorite Valentine was sleeping but I snagged a picture of her when she woke up. So I have to be silly and point out I had a really cute red skirt on, too.
This is Hayden with her chunky buddy Evan that is only 8 days older than she.
So the other day we were at Carter's buddy's house and he came down the stairs crying, "I don't want to be in handcuffs." And then that night we had this conversation:
This is one of those videos that is probably just for Grandmas and Grandpas and siblings from far away. I remember seeing videos of this sort for some of my friends kids and thinking, boring! And these videos are kind of boring except for flesh and blood that ache to see anything and everything about her. So for those interested here you go, there will probably be a fair amount of these:
We recently went to the Science Center (I LOVE our science center here) and they just opened this Sports Works where you learn about the science of sports and athletics. Carter loved this racing part. He was very intense about it. I was trying to get his picture, but apparently I was taking away his focus because he was yelling at me, "Don't take my picture, Mom!"
I love this picture because a) this water section is his favorite part of the whole Science Center. He could play for hours here. It has been a long time since we have been here and it was so cool to see how he has grown up. His play was so much more methodical and well thought out. You could see the wheels turning in his head. b) my favorite thing about this picture is his tongue. I don't know how many times I have seen Matt's tongue in this same position. Father like son Big Time!
About an hour outside of Pittsburgh is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's famous houses he designed: Falling Water. At the Science Center they have an awesome model railway of Western Pennsylvania and the newest addition is Falling Water. It looks just like it!!
This picture was taken in December with Matt's co-resident spouses. All spouses of the residents were pregnant at the same time except for two. We are missing one lady who would be second from the last.
This is us just a week ago. The first three babies are within an 8 day span and then between Hayden and the next baby boy there is 3 1/2 weeks. The next lady is due in May and then June.
