Snow (and it was more than flurries!)

On February 12th, 2010 Chapin, South Carolina got snow and it was more than flurries. This is a really big deal, since we usually don't see any snow and if we do it is just a few flurries ... nothing to write home about. The weather forecast was calling for inches, so when it started I had my fingers crossed.

Tyler got picked up from daycare by my mom that Friday, and when they got home they went outside to watch the snow come down.

In just a couple of hours, the yards were covered in snow. And it kept coming down.

Of course we all had to get our pictures taken cause when are we ever going to see this happen again!

The next morning we woke up to 5 inches of snow! It was beautiful!

Valentine's Day!

For Tyler's class we needed to make a Valentine's Day box. You know, a decorated box that everyone can put their valentine's in that they brought for you.

So we started with one of Tyler's shoe boxes.

I had him 'decorate' the paper that I was going to use to wrap the top of the box with. (Please disregard the clothes on the table in the background. We were in the middle of washing clothes ... it seems we are always in the middle of washing clothes!)

By 'decorate' we mean finger paint all over the paper. He is very good at fingerpainting. They must do a lot of it at day care.

Then I cut out little foam hearts and glued 'googly' eyes on them.

And here is the end result! I was trying to go for something that wasn't to girly. I think it turned out pretty awesome!

The Greatest Show on Earth!

Tyler and I got invited to the circus today! I wasn't planning on taking him this year because I didn't think he was 'old' enough for it. But I was convinced to give it a try .... and I am so glad I did. Tyler absolutely LOVED it.

As you walk up the stairs to go into the Colonial Center there are tons of vendors. And the first thing that caught Tyler's eye were the light toys. He made a bee line straight for them. So of course I gave in and got him one!

It didn't take him long to figure out how it worked.

I think Tyler's favorite was the elephants. (probably because we just learned how to make the elephant sound and use our arm as the elephant's trunk.)

Tyler lasted for 3/4 of the show, but he finally just gave out.

Question of the Day: Does your couch have static electricity?!
One of Tyler's new favorite past times is climbing. He will climb on anything, he especially loves the couch. As he was climbing, I noticed something was happening to his hair!

It kept getting bigger and bigger and crazier the more and more he climbed over the couch.

So as you can see, our couch definitely has some static electricity!
