Happy Snow day?

So, no fun pictures today. What's new here?
1. Gary has been home for 2 days because of the snow. I think the snow is beautiful. I miss my walks with Kai though. Sunny days with warm weather would be great. Skirts. Flip flops. Sunglasses. Ahhhhhh
2. Kai is heavy. We have many stairs. That is my work out. Also, my biceps are monstrous due to hours of him jumping in my arms (he just stands on my lap and jumps, jumps, jumps).
3. I made a spinach, strawberry salad tonight. I really like fruit, especially when its already cut up and ready to be devoured.
4. I love our care group from church. We meet every Thursday and there are 2 other new babies in the group too which is nice. There's 6 couples and we are currently doing a study on marriage. Good times. Although, I miss `The Office' on these nights and tonight, I forgot to tape it.
5. Kai is on a crazy schedule of eating every 2 1/2 hours for the past 3 days (okay, not at night but during the day). Must be another growth spurt. Like he needs another one. I had a dream last night that this giant that was like 8 feet tall claimed he was Kai's father and I thought that made sense. Should I not be writing about weird stuff like that? Probably not. Oops. I'm tired.
6. Gary just went through some boxes of his in the basement. We found a story he wrote and illustrated in grade seven. It's about a mouse named Brent that loves basketball and scores the winning basket in the most important game of the season. It is very cute and it was nice for me to see that side of him...just a glimpse into what he was like as a kid.
7. We bought a mini football for Kai for just 50cents at Toys R Us. Kai likes to suck on it but Gary and I have really enjoyed tossing it around the house! I think its some good practice for the off season. Hope to play again in May.
8. I wish we knew our neighbours better. We have the conversations that you have with people when you are both in the back yard at the same time (lots of snow hey? how was your commute? oh look at how big your son is now!). Guess these things take time.
9. Gary should be home in a few minutes (they had a game tonight). So far, they are 3-0, lets see what happened tonight!
10. Here's a joke. This was my sister Jantina's favourite joke when she was 3 years old, she would tell it over and over and over....
Q. How do you catch a squirrel?
A. Climb up a tree and act like a nut.

Bon nuit. Lala salama (`sleep peacefully' in swahili...I still use some swahili with Gary. I'll have to teach Kai). Good night.


  1. Kai's father is an 8 foot giant ? Interesting....
    Another growth spurt, he will outgrow annie before we know it.
    Neighbours...maybe you should organize a bbq for the neighbours in the summer. Our cul-de-sac has a huge one once a year, it was fun last year :o)
