Building and Stacking

Bob Kale the Builder has been up to lots of building and stacking these days.  It seems no matter what the objects, he works to stack them up. 

Pantry items....

Teddy Grahams on sippy cup....
Airplanes on Lego tower...
No matter how he stacks it up, we love this boy.

Leta and Fam

Enjoyed catching up with my friend and former roommate, Leta and her family over Christmas break.  They were in town visiting from Virginia.  So great meeting Henry, now 9 months old!  Love you, sweet friend!  Thanks for visiting!

Happy Belated

December 28 was Justin's birthday.  We enjoyed a date night out to Texas Roadhouse, Christmas light looking and ice cream at none other than Mickey-D's!  Happy Birthday, hubs!  Wishing you another blessed year!

Christmas 2011

We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with our families.  We spent Christmas Eve/Day in MN.
Kale was much more comfortable with all the cousins and aunts/uncles.  He actually let them snuggle him a little and he even ventured into the basement on his own to play with toys.  Our little boy is growing up!

We celebrated our own little family Christmas on Tuesday, Decemeber 27.  Kale still isn't so sure about gift opening-but it was fun to set things out the night before and see him on our Christmas morning.

(This tractor was from Auntie Alyssa's family.  Let's just say it's already put on a few a lot of miles...)

And we spent Friday, Dec. 30 & 31 at Deedra's parents.  We kept the tradition of roasting hot dogs over the fire and added new entertainment of watching old family Christmas videos.  Oh that 1980s hair...
 MMM...this wise man tastes good.  D's brother's dog, Ruger, also must have thought so as one of the wise men went missing for a few minutes...

Deedra's Dad made Kale this wooden "toolbox" to hold his books.  Kale, being an ordinary 18 month old, thought it would be okay to step inside...
