Good Friends!

I am always so excited when friends visit us.  My friend Jenny and her husband Chris were in town and we had a great time together in the mountains.  We even talked them into learning to ski.

strange sleeper

Petunia continues to be a very strange sleeper.... 

This is Petunia's new favorite way to sleep in the car.  She doesn't fit behind the seat in the back so I have to put her in the front.  About every week or so she finds some strange new way to position herself.  Silly girl!!

Cool Dude!!

Riding in style

Hmmm... is that the cool new way to wear sunglasses?

Matthew is going to be a yogi... He is already doing a great dolphin pose! He held this pose on his own for several minutes.

Kicking it in the sand box at the play ground!

I let Matthew have his first sugar cookie.  I should have rethought the blue icing...

A very happy boy after his cookie!

Dog VS. Cat

Petunia has actually been slowly improving in her house behavior.  She can now have a bit of freedom and doesn't have to be tied to my waist all the time.  She does still however love to torture our cat Bree!  She chased her out on to the porch and then wouldn't let her back in.

"What?  I'm just laying here and chatting with her.... Really.... she's fine... I'm not doing anything I swear."

Easter Egg Hunts

This was Matthew's fist Easter when he could partially enjoy the many activities of the season.  On the Saturday before Easter we went to a local sports store for an Easter Egg Hunt.  We were late so most of the Eggs were gone by the time we got there.  Matthew didn't care at all about the Eggs... All he wanted to do was gather large rocks.   Then on Sunday we hid Eggs in our backyard and all went out in our PJ's to find eggs with jelly beans and peanut butter cups in them.  He had a blast!

"Where are all the eggs mom?"

"Forget Eggs... Check out this cool rock!!"

He filled his basket full of rocks and tried to lift it and carry it around.  Too Cute!

"I found an Egg..... and OMG it has candy in it!!!"

"I wonder what this one has in it?"

"yippee!!!  Two more!!"

Notice his butt is covered in mulch... its so fun to play in the dirt in your PJ's

"look there's another one!"

"Grandpa Johns is so cool!  He taught me to hang in the tree like a monkey!"

Adrenalin junkie at 19 months?

"I'll jump if you catch me!?!"

Grandma Kaplun and Matthew's Helmet

Alex's Mom visited us for a week and she and Matthew had fun watering the flowers. 

Matthew got a new helmet and he just LOVES it!!  He wears it all the time and insists on having it on when he gets on his tricycle. 

Caught in the act!!!  While I was trying to take a picture of Matthew, Petunia swept in and tried to eat his banana.   What a naughty puppy!!  She knows better.
