A hill in the front yard of our cousin's home serves as a perfect tobogganing hill. He takes snow and builds ramps, sides, complete with lights strung up for night time sledding. What a great time for kids!
Me to Kyle:
"Kyle, you have a charming smile! Who loves you?"
"my dad, mom, grandparents....lots of people."
"Does your older sister love you?"

Our dear aunt M. created hard cover books for two of our boys. One was filled with poems that she wrote and the other book was an "a b c" book. She filled the books with pictures that are familiar to our boys. We have all enjoyed reading and looking at the pictures. But best of all, the books reminds us of a special aunt who spent many hours creating and sharing memories.
Our middle guy spent the past two years sleeping in a nook in the upstairs hallway. With a solar system dangling above his head and a skylight to look out of; it was a cozy little place for him. Now with all of the boys two years older, it was time for doubling up and for the middle guy to get his own space. We switched everyone around and thankfully it has all worked out. The boys are happy with their new roommates.
