February Thaw

We had some super mild weather in February which made for great snowman making snow!

We dug a hole and plunked Alex in. He was thrilled to be outside!

First we had to clear a path to have a spot to build a snowman!

Thanks for all the foam pieces, Aunt Christina!
She thought she was beautiful, I agree.

Often how I find him, at the bottom of his bed, on top of his puppy.
Siblings much?

Shut out of the den because "he keeps touching our stuuuuff"
Good yogurt, Mom

They came in from playing with very cold, wet feet. A warm foot bath is of course the answer.

I was teasing Katie about something and after she responded, I said, "How do you know?" And without blinking an eye she retorts, "Because I have a brain."

Emma at supper one night, "My armpit is sleepy"

One of the girls, I can't remember which one now, "Then the angel said to them, "Do not be a Fred...."" It should have been "do not be afraid"

I was pretending to be an English gentleman and I said, "of course, wot wot" and Katie replied with, "I'm not wot wot, I'm Katie."

 Katie "Mom, I just sang Jesus Loves Me without breathing! And I didn't even die!"

I was telling Katie in some hybrid of German/Dutch/Scandinavian accent to wait for the the cloth and it sounded something like  "vait fuur de claus" and she got all up set saying "I'm NOT Sinterclaus!"  It took me a second to figure out how in the world I call her Sinterclaus!
