Mom and Dad's Cabin

My mom and dad just put a cabin on their farm, just a few feet away from their house. They plan to use it for guests and also as a cabin for hunters. I am trying to convince them to rent it out to weekend scrapbookers too! Anyway, we all just love it. It is so cute and cozy. I keep trying to get over there while I am here over Christmas to just relax and watch a movie, scrapbook or read a book by myself, but with the two kids, its almost impossible! I thought I would share some pictures with you.

Hooray for Isaac!

Isaac handed me this slip of paper last night and I was astounded! He has been working on his name for quite some time, but this is the first time he was able to print it perfectly without any help! I am so proud of him!

Some odds and ends from our life...

We just started solids last week, and Graham LOVES it! I am hoping he will be a better eater than Isaac. If the first bite is any indication, I'd say we're off to a good start because Isaac hated his first bite of rice cereal. Graham absolutely INHALES his food. He looks like a little hamster-he sort of hunches over and grabs the spoon with both hands and scrunches his little nose and slurps it out of the spoon. It is a total body experience for him, as you can see in the picture above! He's so cute!

Here's a couple recent funny Isaac stories:

*We celebrated our Christmas early on Saturday because we will be leaving next Friday to be with our family. Isaac LOVED all of his presents from his mom and dad. One of the things we got him is a real acoustic guitar for kids. After we got done opening gifts, we heard him strumming away on his guitar singing, "I love my parents, I love my parents..."

*Isaac came up to me the other day and showed me his little plastic pig from his farm set floating in a bowl of water with a couple of rocks. He said, "I put my pig in this water, do you know why?" When I said, "why?" he said, "because its his natural habitat."

*Isaac came running downstairs from his room and excitedly said, "Mama! we're having circle time! Come see!" I proceeded to go up to his room and found all of his little stuffed animals sitting on the baby's washrags in a circle (at his preschool the kids sit in a circle on carpet squares during circle time).
