baby it's cold outside

This past weekend our first winter storm it... and it sure came down. Tons of snow - probably about a foot. Power outages, blowing snow. A winter friday night. So the next morning Regan was being a good husband and neighbor, went out and spent 2 - 3 hours shovelling our driveway and our neighbours (they were away.) Sunday it started to rain. And rain. And rain and rain... you get the point. So a lot of the snow melted. All that work and he could of just waited.... but he was being a good guy! (He's good at that!) Made the roads slick this morning when we went out. I'm glad to be home and safe again this afternoon!

Lucy had her 2 month check up. She weighed in at 11 pounds 7 ounces. She is doing great. And also really tall - in the 95% for her height.
Even though this first picture is out of focus - I had to keep it. It is the first time we have been able to catch Lucy smiling... of course it is blurry. Oh well - it's still cute!


















Alden is doing great too. He looks so big in this photo. I just took it about 10 minutes ago...and he looks bigger already. We have been talking to him about Christmas and trying to teach him the real reason behind Christmas. I think we will be having a birthday cake close to Christmas and talking about how it is Jesus Christ's birthday to help it sink in a bit. He knows to say it is his BIrthday - but then asks when his is so he can get more presents. He's three. :)

She looks like ALden in the smile picture. So funny to see the resemblances.

Good for you making a birthday cake for Jesus. We will have to do that sometime too. Maybe next week.

She is adorable!! Those blurry photos are just as important, I have kept many of those! They really look alike! 95th percentile...wow...that is tall, DD is in the 75th, so I do have a clue!

Glad that your family is safe in the storm and wish I could send our weather your way! We've been blessed with some warm sunny days! Hang in there...summer is not far off. LOL!

Having a birthday cake for Jesus is a great idea. We are also teaching the real meaning of Christmas too, so thanks for the idea. DD loves cake, so she will really be happy about it.
