Avery has been really tired by lunchtime lately. I think Jack's growing out of naps and Avery's not ready yet. He ends up waking up at 7am and torments her until she wakes up. If she had it her way I think she'd sleep until 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning. Yesterday while I was cleaning up from lunch, I noticed her puttering about and finally looked to see what she was up to.
Against my better judgment, I purchased some bathtub crayons and since Court is out of town this week, I'm trying to find fun and different things to do to change up our days and evenings. I got the tub crayons out last night. They were a lot of fun, but "easy clean-up" statement on the box wasn't entirely true. Had we only drawn on the tub and tiles and not touched the grout, we'd have been fine.

This morning while I was getting ready I could hear them on the monitor talking to each other. I knew Jack had looked out his window because he said, "Look Sis, it's snow time!!"" The snow has been falling all day and it looks like a winter wonderland out here. We'll probably go back out this afternoon as long as we can stand the cold.

Our attempt at a snowman. We got derailed lookng for eyes for him. We remembered to bring carrots out for the nose...
This video was taken a week or so ago. Jack is forever finding himself in precarious positions. He climbed up into the window and because he wasn't in serious danger, I let him stay up there and I wanted to see him get down on his own. He eventually climbed down without any trouble...
And a few weeks back, Ian and Miles came out for a visit. They had a giggle and screamfest playing with this toy:
