Is it SPRING yet??

It takes more than 6 inches of cold snow on the ground to take Heber's eyes off of the swingset outside. It's a tough job, but somebody has go to do it!
After working very hard to clean that slide off I finally got to enjoy a great ride to the bottom. The only landing spot that could be any better than a pile of cold snow is a big muddy puddle!!
These pictures were taken earlier this week before we reached arctic -32 degrees temperatures. I think we have finally found the key to keeping Heber off of the slide.....I would play on the swingset all day though if we could only just be warm!!

Got Chips?

This morning as I was driving Heber to school he asked me if I was going to work while he was at school. I told him that I was going to the grocery store to get food for dinner. He thought that was a great idea and then changed the subject. Once at school, we took off the many layers of extra clothing outside his classroom and I hugged him goodbye as his teacher welcomed him into the room. He started to walk away and then stopped and leaned backwards so I could see only the top half of his body in the doorway and said "GET CHIPS!!"

Where did this kid come from anyway?

Caution: Blogger Working

So as you can see, we are under construction. I have decided to try a few new looks and in the process have had to have a few things removed until I can put them back where I want them. Please don't mind the mess and check back often!

Top 10 reasons for loving Heber:
(at least for today anyway!)

1. Just look at that face!

2. He says things like "whats coming this noise?" (what is that noise?) and "oh, I sawey" (oh, I'm sorry).

3. He wanders around all day singing to himself or anyone that will listen...his current favorite is still Jingle Bells. He is especially great at throwing in that "HEY" after singing "one horse open sleigh."

4. He loves to be read to at night.

5. He is a major tease....getting Ben's goat is on his daily agenda.

6. He makes every day an adventure complete with sword fights, gun shootouts, wrestelmania, basketball finals, car races, tower construction, couch sailing (they do make great boats), bat and snake safaris, and at least one chance a day to save the world as one of the many superheros taking over his toy room.

7. He gives me hugs and kisses at the doorway to his classroom when I drop him off and pick him up.

8. He burrows into his covers at night so far that you can barely see the top of his little head.

9. He never gives up (even when mom and dad are threatening time out....or the many other means of discipline we have exhausted).

10. He is a miniature version of his father.....what is not to love about that?!
