Yea, we had a cold snap a few weeks ago... so I had to dig into our winter hats and gloves and socks container. In said container was the Christmas hat that my folks gave all us kids a few years back. (It's been worn to many App State Football games). Caden seems to enjoy it... it jingles :) He's so cute!

I missed getting the shots I wanted from this storm that blew in last week. (Camera battery died just when I turned it on... opps). It reminded me of the scene in Independence Day when the alien ships fly in above the towns and the leading edge of the ship blotting out the sun. It was about 7pm when this thing blew in out of nowhere... it was still sunny out. And then it was dark... very dark.
On the flip side... here is a shot of my tomato plants growing out on our deck. The little green tomatoes are growing nicely... Michael said that from the parking lot, our deck looks like a jungle... with the tomatoes, basil, dill, oregano, and palms all growing happily, it makes me smile! :)
I wish I had caught him as he was climbing up on the scooter, but, what are ya gonna do?! This is just a hint of what he's doing these days. He climbs up on everything. The bed, the couch, the table benches, the bakers rack, the lamp, my dresser, the bathtub, the laundry machines, the dishwasher, etc. He's even figured out how to get the child locks open on the cabinets! Guess I have to go find some new ones to keep him out!
My husband rocks! So for our anniversary he showed up with this bag that I had mentioned liking a few weeks back. I never in a million years would have bought it for myself. But he likes to spoil me when he can... :) Talk about surprising me! Love it! Now... to get some outfits that I can wear with it... :)

he's mommy's little helper! :) it's really funny cause now, when i need to go get the clothes out of the dryer, he will go straight to the dryer, try to open it, start pulling out clothes and either hand them to me or walk them in to the den and pile them up.
our foray into finger painting. i think we got painted more than the paper... and of course, it was straight off to the tub!
the last shot is Caden helping mommy doing the laundry... and trying on daddy's shirt... Bastogne!

first clue that it was going to be nasty... it blew up from the wrong direction! never good when the wind is blowing in from the direction of where storms go AFTER they pass us... and the clouds are going in opposite directions. swirling clouds are never a good sign. and poor Michael was out in the field that night!

in case you can't tell... there is about 2 inches of water in the pool... it isn't empty. i'm not that mean! though he will happily sit and play in it even without the water! :) oh... and since i failed to mention it... daddy helped mommy give the little one a hair cut the other day. no more hot hair! less complaining when getting out of the bath and needing to dry the hair off! much better!
