Well Today was a snowday! Now school! These days are so fun to me! Even though it is so cold outside I think we have figured out a way to give Parker some outdoor like exercise. Everyone knows he is a ball of energy so this is definitely good for him!

Chandler's First Big Snow.

We've had a little bit of snow on the ground before but not very much. Today Chandler got to see snow falling from the sky for the first time. We played outside for a little bit. Chandler ate some snow and made a funny face. Shaun made a big pile of snow for Parker to jump in. It was really fun. Afterward we all came in and warmed up by the fire. Brrrr.

Nanny's Birthday

We went to Nanny's house for her birthday and ate dinner and cake.The boys had a blast. Chandler got to have a little cake and ice cream. We got Nanny a cuddle blanket and Parker gave Nanny something extra special. Maybe you can tell from the pictures what it was.


Chandler's First Haircut

Chandler got his first haircut today. He did such a good job. It was cute. He Really doesn't have a whole lot of hair but it was long on the top and poofy in the back so she just took a little bit off. He liked the razor. He smiled like it tickled.
Parker got his haircut too and he did good as usual, but he did fall out of the chair because he was trying to squirt me with the water bottle.

Poor Chandler

I realized today that he is not just cutting his 3rd tooth like I said previously. Poor little Chandler is cutting his 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th tooth all at the same time. Guess he is gonna cut teeth like his Uncle Dustin. No wonder his front gums have so so swollen.

Parker reads a book

Parker loves to read stories with me. Tonight when we read this short little book and he decided to read by himself. Sometimes I point to the words, maybe cause I am a teacher, so that he can learn that those weird shapes at the bottom mean something. Anyway, he pointed to the words when he read tonight! That is such a big deal to me. He called the pig and oink and the dog a puppy, but he pointed tot he words! Woohoo! I am so excited. It was cute. My little beginner reader, I am a proud mommy.

Well, i was mama for a long time. then all of the sudden Parker started calling me mom. It was weir to hear him say. Sounded so grown up. Well, yesterday he stared calling me mommy! I thought maybe it was just for the day but, today he is still calling me mommy. I like it. I hope it lasts.
Today during dinner, Parker said he was gonna get stong and big like Daddy from eating. It was cute. We have never heard him say that before.

Pigs at Lowe's

Today we had to run to Wal-Mart and when we got out of the car Parker asked if we could go see the piggies. We were confused and didn't have a clue what he was talking about. Finally, I figured out that he was looking at all the little sheds outside of Lowe's. He thinks they are barns for little piggies.

Chandlers 3rd Tooth

Chandler is cutting his 3rd tooth! It is his top right one. I can feel it coming in. He is teething really well. He is sleeping all night and I haven't given him Tylenol at all for this tooth until today. It really hasn't seemed to bother him. Poor Parker had a tough time teething. He even had to have codeine to get him through a few of his teeth.

St Louis

This weekend we took a quick trip to St. Louis. Shaun woke up Friday morning and said he sure would love to get out of town for the weekend, so we did. The boys did pretty good on the way up there. It took much longer than just a normal 6 hour drive. We had several stops. But we made it there Friday night and we had fun.
On Saturday we went to the City Museum. It was such a cool place. They had all kinds of tunnels and slides and stuff made out of steel and building material and shipping rollers. Parker and Chandler had so much fun. They were completely worn out when we left.
We realized we forgot bathing suits to swim in at the hotel, so we decided to go to walmart, but it took us forever to find it. We actually never found it until we finally found a Target and left from there. Suddenly walmart just appeared out of nowhere. Of course it would when we didn't need it anymore.
On Sunday we ate at white Castle. It was ok. We saw it on food network and wanted to try it. We went to the arch. Parker hesitated to go to the top, but he liked it a little. He is scared of heights so after he looked out the window he told us... I am done, I want to go home now. He really just wanted to get back down to the ground. Seeing flying birds below him didn't fit his fancy.
Last we took a tour of annheiser busch. The boys got to see the clydesdale horses. Those horses are like royalty. i think I want to be a horse for Annheiser Busch.
This trip homw was better. i boys slept most of the way, they were exhausted. We stopped and ate at Cracker Barrel in joplina nd then got home about 10:00 Sunday night. It was a good get away and it is always fun to take the boys to see new stuff. They really enjoy famly outings.
