Coming Out of Hibernation

It's been a crazy season for weather.  Our weather is up and down constantly; it's very difficult to plan anything.  Well, a lot of the time it's been too cold to get out and play.  Cabin fever was setting in and the kids were ready to get out and stretch their little legs.

Superheros Unite

Liam is in love with his superheros that he has gotten over the years.  He plays with them on and off, giving all of his toys equal attention.  He pulled these guys out and brought them in the living room and asked if I would play with him and take pictures.  He loves it that I take pictures of him.  He loves it more when he can be goofy and laugh at himself when viewing the pictures later.  I think that is his favorite part!  So, here we are bridging the DC Marvel worlds.

My Little Valentine

I'm horrible.  I didn't do anything with or for anyone on Valentine's Day.  The kids don't care anyway.  They get enough chocolate and treats throughout the year that it doesn't matter to them, it's just another day.  Aaron doesn't want me spending the money on him, so I have to skip any ideas I may have up my sleeve.  So, all I did was snap a couple of pictures of Liam holding a balloon.  Sounds super exciting, huh?

Taking it Back to the Eighties

When I was a kid growing up in the eighties, we had all kinds of cool toys - from Cabbage Patch Kids and cool Barbie accessories (that they don't have now) to Atari and the Commodore 64.  It was such a great time to grow up.  Not to mention the music!  I miss those days so much!  Since I have been going through my mom's old stuff to prepare for an estate sale, I have been finding some old stuff of mine that I haven't seen in about 25-30 years!  My kids have made several trips to the house with me and found my old wooden bats (Landon took those), a softball glove, baby clothes, multiple trains, various dolls, books, elementary school papers, pictures, artwork, games, a weaving loom, and an old McDonald's set. Liam was all about the dolls, weaving loom, trains, and my McDonald's set!  Here he is playing with a few of those items.  Love it!
