What's better than being attacked by baby kisses? She's definitely like her brother and sister, the later it gets, the sillier she gets. I was getting ready to put her jammies on her and settle down for the night when she started her attack. She got the giggles and we had a little mommy and Thumper play time. It was great!

To get snow twice in a year is simply amazing but to get snow twice in a MONTH is absolutely unheard of. I hate the winter and I hate to be cold but THIS is amazing and I am so thankful for the beautiful snow. Bubba and I just couldn't help ourselves, we had to get out in it even if it is almost midnight. Thank you Jesus!!!
Another nice warm day to go out and play. Sister loves to play ring around the rosies on the trampoline. She's been playing on the trampoline since before she could walk. We bought it for Bubba on his 3rd birthday and it's been through two hurricanes. We definitely got our moneys worth out of it.
It was entirely too cold on New Years to get out and pop fireworks. Even with a bonfire it would have been too cold and nasty to have the kids out. Hubs decided since we had a little better weather we'd build a fire and let the kids do some sparklers and roman candles. They had a blast!

What has happened to my little boy? He's growing up so fast! His hands are huge, they are bigger than mine now. Don't even get me started about his feet. I love watching him grow but it's so bittersweet. I miss him being little and shudder to think that he'll soon be a teenager. Time really does fly!
Wow!! LOTS of snow today! We woke up this morning with about 6 inches on the ground. I'm 35 years old and this is the most that I can ever remember it snowing here at home. It was BEAUTIFUL! Sister had so much fun helping me build a snowman. She loved for mommy to build it so that she could knock it down.
Snow is not a common thing here. We may see a few flakes here and there but almost never enough to actually play in. The first sight of real snow and we had to get everyone bundled up and get out in it. Thumper wasn't too into it, she's still too little but Sister had a blast!

Oh how she loves to slide! She's getting pretty good at it too. I can set her at the top of the slide and let go and she'll push herself off. It's so cute and she gets so excited, almost like she's proud of herself. It's hard to believe that she is already seven months old. It seems like only yesterday she was still in my belly.
We went to cheer on Bubba at his last basketball game of the season. It was ugly! They got beat by over 30 points. We don't have a great coach. We also lack talent but the coach, he's too soft. Thumper, well she had all of the ballgame that she could handle. She took her a little nap and was ready to go when the game was over.
Movie night with my sweet boy. He got to pick the movie and he chose a classic. Friday the 13th Uncut. I know it's a horror movie and a bit gory but it is really mild compared to the horror films today. I hadn't seen it since I was about his age so it was almost like watching it for the first time. Good movie, enjoyed spending time with my boy!
We had to comb out all of the tangles after bath time. Her hair is so thin and fine that it just mats up and if you don't get those tangles out in a hurry, you'll have a big mess. She loves to have her hair brushed. She's not always still but she like it.
Bubba and I got a little alone time after the girls went to sleep. Now that I have two babies it is hard to find time to spend with just my boy. He's an amazing kid and he rarely complains but he deserves more alone time with his mommy and I'm really trying to make that happen for him.

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles! I don't typically give the girls a "bubble" bath but they both had a little congestion going on so I filled the tub with vapor bath. Thumper had never really had a "bubble" bath and she absolutely loved it. It was really difficult though because she was so excited that she couldn't stay still. I had to keep my hands on her because she kept flipping over in the water. She's mobile now and I can't contain her. Sister, well she's always loved a good bubble bath. Keeping her from jumping and splashing is a chore. Bath time with my girlies is so much fun!!!
