Last night we had some friends over for dinner. Everyone brought one side dish accompanied by one rambunctious toddler.  We decided to put on a movie to entertain the boys, and here are Luke and Logan, a half hour into it, still staring away at good old Buzz and Woody. 

It scares me a little bit how quickly Luke's attention span for television has grown. On the other hand, I'm probably not going to do anything to discourage this behavior, as it's proving to be fabulously useful whenever I do decide turn on the tube!

The snow has finally melted enough that we can get outside for a walk again! We are ALL thrilled.

9 years in the making

I wrote the date down on something this morning and I thought, why does January 26 seem important to me?  Oh yeah, it's because it was on this day 9 years ago that Sam and I started dating :)

Here's a picture of us taken after one of our first dates. We already seem pretty cozy together, don't you think?? ;)

Guess he'll never be a great bowler

Luke got these bowling pins as a Christmas present.  The first day we brought them home, I set them up and showed him how to bowl.  He promptly ignored me, picked up a pin, and started whacking the ball with it.  Now he plays with them every day, but never, not once, in the way that they're actually meant to be played with.  This irritated me for a while, but today it occurred to me: really, why do I care?

Luke's ABCs

It's not all that impressive, considering he only knows the first phrase ("ABC") and the last word ("me"), but we still think he's rather cute.

Sunday morning photo shoot

My faithful readers may notice that I skipped a blog post from yesterday.  We were all sick this weekend and I honestly did not feel like taking pictures while I was lying on the couch moaning and feeling horrible. (Yeah, I'm quite pitiful when I'm sick and Sam is a saint for putting up with me and not laughing.) Thus I have no pictures from yesterday. But I have four from today, so that should make up for it.

Luke discovered his pants pockets this morning while we were getting ready to go to church, and he was so cute that we decided to have a little photo shoot right then and there.

Where's Luke?

It was 5 minutes to bed time, and Luke had gone into the mudroom to "help" fold the laundry.  Sam brought the laundry basket out and set it on the kitchen table, and returned to the mudroom. And... Luke had disappeared. 

Guess where he was hiding?
