Spring Fever

This year the groundhog reportedly missed his shadow which means that spring is right around the corner. We have had a small taste of spring the last two days, warm and breezy. Yesterday we spend a lot of time playing outside. I put warm-weather clothes on the kids and we went to the park. I was so glad to put Tristan's clothes on because I have quite a few 12-months short sets that I thought he was going to grow out of before he even got to wear them. Luckily both sets I tried have fit just right. The kids looked cute and were excited to get out and breathe some fresh air.

In other news, we continue to show our house but no takers yet. It has been very difficult, with two kids, to keep the house looking nice at all times. Sure hope someone puts in an offer soon!

Tonight we look forward to the arrival of Grandma Mary. She is coming to help with the kids while I clean the house. We intended on having her here before we put our house on the market but we ended up listing it sooner than we originally thought.

Here are some more pictures I downloaded tonight. The infamous step stool. Tristan drinking from a flower vase--he is his father's son. Whenever we go to Beaver Chris finds my mom's vase that looks like a big drinking glass and uses that for his water.

Cute pictures. They look like brother and sister, don't they? But they sure don't look like you. Funny how that happens, isn't it. I'm sure they're enjoying Grandma Mary's stay.

I can see you in Tristan. Kennedy looks like Chris though, I think.

Are you hating the showing your house phase? I'm dreading even getting it ready, much less keeping it ready. Ugh. And you guys are clean freaks! There is no hope for me!

Love the pictures. I hope you are having fun with your mom.

Oh my gosh I can't believe how big Tristan is. I seriously can't get over it. They're so adorable! You're lucky its warm there, its snowing AGAIN here. It makes me so mad. So is Grandma there now? What are you all up to? Give everyone a hug for me. Love you
