No Snow!

The other day Gavin and Kyson were playing in Kyson's room. All of a sudden I heard Gavin yelling, "The snow is gone!! No snow on the sandbox!" He had opened the blinds and had saw that the snow had finally melted off of his sandbox. Even though it was still really cold outside, he insisted on going out and playing in it. Oh, how I miss the warm weather and being able to throw the kids outside and let them play! They can play for hours outside!

Dad's big helpers

Casey has been working on a few projects lately and he is sure to have his little midgets by his side. Here is Gavin helping him fix the car. He sat there and mostly complained about how cold he was, but he wasn't going to leave Dad's side.Casey was putting in a storm door and of course there were a lot of tools out. Kyson got his tools and was right along side him helping him.
We had to make sure puppy was protected and wasn't going to get hurt, so puppy had to wear a hard hat.
Gavin couldn't be tricked by the toy tools, he had to use the real tools. He would go around with a screwdriver and tried unscrewing any screw he could see. We've had to go around and fix a few loose screws.

Things that make me laugh

Here are a few things that have made me laugh lately:

Gavin fixing his hurt nose with a bandaidGavin and Kyson "snuggling" in Kyson's crib after their naps

Christmas all over again. We visited the shop where Casey works and Gavin found these 5/16 threaded inserts they make and got to bring some home. He was so excited and played with them and even had to sleep with them. He'll be our little machinest some day.
And lastly, my favorite thing right now is Kyson's "I'm in trouble" face. If Casey or I get mad at him, he gives us this face and sits there for a good 2 minutes just making this face. We try hard not to laugh.

Beautiful St. George

Over Christmas break we went to St. George with my family and enjoyed some time away from the cold weather and had fun going SWIMMING and SHOPPING. Casey is tired of me bragging about my $3 jeans I got at Downeast, but I was pretty excited about that, as well as my other wonderful bargains! Gavin and Kyson loved being there with cousins, Grandma and Grandpa and Uncles and Aunts. Thanks mom and dad for the wonderful trip!

Enjoying time home...

We had a lot of cold and snowy weather over Christmas break, so we spent a lot of time indoors and played with our new toys. We had fun putting together our huge train track!
