I know Abilene has gotten a ton of snow since we left, but we really haven't had any here. It snowed a little when we first got here and it snowed again this Tuesday. Grayson was so excited to see it snow. He just stood by the window and watched it forever. I know he thought he was going to get to go sledding and throw snowballs, but we didn't get enough to even enjoy it. Poor kid... it's hard to explain that sometimes it snows a lot, and sometimes it snow just a little to a 3 year old. 

Las Cruces

The boys and I went to Las Cruces last week and I am finally posting...

Someone, I won't name any names, gave Gavyn his first few licks of a popsicle. I kind of freaked out, but Gavyn was in heaven!

We enjoyed some relaxation time in the hot tub. It was Gavyn's first time, but he loved it as much as Grayson did his first time. Don't worry the temperature is regulated, the water is comfortable for the kids. Just in case you were thinking, "I can't believe she lets here babies in the hot tub!"

We went to the park to play since the weather was nice, unlike our crazy Texas weather. Grayson also revisited the tennis courts and Gavyn watched very intently. Grayson doesn't really have a clue how to play, nor does he follow my directions to learn. He just runs around crazily and chases the tennis balls. Oh well... he burns a lot of energy.

 I got to get a pedicure all by myself, without baby in lap. My feet are finally soft again and do not feel like sand paper anymore! You are probably getting bored by now, but I just think my kids are so cute. I could have done without the feet picture, I know, but I just though it was cute Grayson put his feet on mine after my pedicure. He notices everything!

Grayson got a new shirt with a tie on it, that he insisted I take a picture of.

Finally, it was my mom's birthday and her friends threw a SURPRISE party! I was in on the surprise and I didn't spill the beans, go me!!! She got this crazy hat as a gift and the kids loved it. They both wanted to play with it and for some reason it brought out he crazies in Grayson. He was wild and crazy until he took it off. Well, there ya have it a week in New Mexico.

Garrett is still in Afghanistan and was supposed to stay until May. We received good news recently that he would be finished in March. I know it's been rough over there, not just for him but all our troops. Please pray for all our troops safety, physical and mental health as this War continues. We are praying for his safety the next couple of weeks, as well as a safe return. We miss him so much and can't wait for him to come home!

Arts & Crafts

a little bit of mod podging... we took a boring old gold G and did a little mod podge,  so it would look more like Grayson's room

Grayson had a lot of fun mod podging a canvas and it's so easy for kids. The best part about mod podging is they can't mess it up.
The finished project!

Warning: Nudity




Gavyn is finally crawling, and I can't keep up with him. He is so proud of himself, he is actually helping me post this right now. I figured naked pictures were only cute for so long, so don't be offended. I couldn't resist capturing his chubby little cheeks!

If you stick your tongue out, it helps you concentrate. At least, it does for me!
