Brrr, it's cold outside!

It has been unseasonably cold here for the last two weeks. We haven't been above freezing and in fact, it has been in the low 20's and teens. It is just cold. The river by us, the Nooksack, is frozen! This is the first time I have seen it like this. It was just too cool (no pun intended) to not stop and take a picture. We have been parking our van outside of the garage the last 2 days and last night Amanda couldn't get her cup out of her cup holder (which had a bit of water in it) because it froze solid!

Power Toe

Many babies will crawl and wear out the knees on thier pants. Darren is still sporting the army crawl and he pushes with his left arm and right toe. That is one strong toe. The other day I put this outfit on him--which happens to be my favorite--and he had worn a hole through the toe! Of my 5 children, that is a first.
