It used to be just pictures of the house and garden. Then I added vacations and a boyfriend. I've since turned the boyfriend into a husband and added two babies to the mix. Occasionally I will throw in some cooking and crafting. (Click on photos to view them larger)
Most important thing that happened this month was that Harper got her first haircut! Her hair is wispy fine and has a bit of curl to it. Together, this means that it likes to stick in all directions. It has gotten long enough that it was always in her eyes and when wet, the back of it is past her shoulders. Off to my favorite hair guru we went. Harper is now the proud owner of cute little bangs. She looks so serious in this picture because her mouth is full of shortbread cookies.
We had our first snow of season last night. The kids thought it would be great fun to "help" Daddy shovel the drive with the ice scrapers that belong in the car. If you look closely at Harper, you can see her poor split, swollen, bruised lip. She tripped over the cord to the laptop the night before last and face planted into the floor. Much crying and bleeding ensued, but she acted like nothing was wrong the next morning, even though she looks like she was on the losing end of a boxing match.
Spenser was actually pretty effective with the ice scraper. There is a squeegee on one end and the snow was very light.
The kids were not particularly bundled up in the first photos because we were on our way to the store to get SNOW BOOTS. Spenser was very excited about them. Since he is likely only going to wear them a few times before he outgrows them, I was pretty please to get them on sale at Target. Both pairs were $20 and Harper's are big enough that she can probably wear them next year as well. Here they are, each with snow boots, snow bib, coat, sweat pants, two shirts, hat, and mittens. (OK, Harper is refusing to wear mittens in this pictures) They were pretty over-stuffed looking as they toddled through the snow.
