Just Like Big Brother

As the days/weeks/months go by, Noah is becoming more insistent in doing everything Matthew does. From what he eats, how he plays, and even how he talks. He is always looking to Matthew to copy everything he does. Even the little things - like decorating book bags at the Kidgets mall event this weekend. Noah was more interested in watching Matthew than concentrating on his own.
And after years of watching Matthew spin the big wheel at the mall...
Noah got his own chance.
He even mastered the art of eating with chopsticks this weekend, just like his big bro.
I'm starting to understand why people ask me if they're twins!

My Funny Valentines

After a morning of little presents, Valentine's Day specials on Disney Junior, and some spirited coloring, me and the boys went out for a little treat - lunch at McDonald's. Noah kept yelling at me to look at the woman who was sitting at another table - hence the pointing and open mouth here.
Matthew loved his Skylander gift enough to bring him along to our little lunch. Not sure why he held up his fry when I took this picture, but it works.
Love certainly was in the air today. We all had a great day loving on each other.
Tomorrow it's more loving at Matthew's little preschool party. Then a busy 3-day weekend that will end with professional photos on Monday. Hope you all had a great day. Enjoy the long weekend!

Nemo Found Us

Well, it could've been worse. We got about 15 inches of heavy white snow as Nemo passed through our town on its way to wreak havoc in MA and RI. We kept power and we were able to dig out just fine this morning, so like I said, it could've been worse! And after a snow-day lunch of mac and cheese and hot dogs, we hit the hills of the school yard for some sledding this afternoon. Matthew was out-of-his-mind excited about it.
Even Noah was psyched.
Maryann joined us for the afternoon too.
These three bananas really had a blast.
My dad even tried to get in on the fun. But he wiped out halfway down the hill on his first run and gave up.
Matthew would have stayed out all day if we let him. But the promise of hot chocolate lured him and the other two maniacs inside.
Now that we've had our fun, I need a few days of above-freezing weather to get rid of all this stuff. Those stinkin' groundhogs promised me an early spring and that's what I want!

Wordless Wednesday: Super Bowl Fun

I was lucky enough to win a #SodaStreamParty from House Party this year - it added a little bit more excitement to our annual bash, especially for the kiddos who went crazy for the foam fingers!
