Wow! It has been too long since we've posted anything new on our blog, even I am getting tired of looking at the same pictures every time I log on to check out everyone else's blogs :) So I won't really try to catch up, I'll just summarize and post a few pics.
We spent Christmas at my parents in Othello and my younger sister and her husband were nice enough to let us stay at there house for a few days, which turned out great because she has a little girl close enough in age to Ethan that they were either side by side watching disney movies 2 inches from the tv, or pulling toys away from each other! Ethan's big present this year was building blocks, because he loves stacking empty oatmeal canisters and anything else he can balance on top of them. Ironically, he still prefers the oatmeal canisters over the store bought blocks!
We've been enduring some gloomy post holiday weather and enjoy every second that we actually get to see the sun shining. Unlike a lot of people, I love Valentine's day and love to make a big deal out of it, so we made heart shaped cookies and valentine's for FHE this past Monday. Ethan drew pictures and signed his name on cards to grandparents and his nursery teachers (yes! he's finally in nursery and has not looked back once!). His favorite part was licking the frosting off the cookie. It was really cute to see him recognize his nursery teacher's face when we dropped off her valentine and cookies :)
Also, we found out that baby #2 is a boy! So I don't think things are going to be slowing down around here any time soon :)
The picture of Nate and I dressed up is from the night of his Christmas work party. We're so glad to have found a babysitter that we love so we can spend the night on the town every now and then :)
