Happy Birthday, Jay!

Have a good one! :)

And one more thing:
 (When things are below freezing C makes more sense.)

Baby-led weaning

One of my coworkers who has twin baby girls was telling me about baby-led weaning. She said her girls (now about 11 months) love it, and are eating pretty much everything, including chicken on the bone, mandarin oranges with the skins on (they chew it up and spit out the 'skin'), etc. Obviously that sounds a lot easier than pureeing everything, freezing it, labeling, thawing, heating, spoon feeding, etc. so I thought I would give it a try! I went to a class on Saturday with Maja, and her first food ever was a cucumber stick! She loved it! And not even a single time gagging (not that it won't ever happen... I just woulda thought for sure this would have caused gagging as a first time food!).

Here are a few videos from the same adventure later that day, at home. The first one is a video by Alina. It has a pretty funny part in it that I didn't know about until I watched it later. Ha...

I wish I had known about this when the other girls were babies! Pretty pfun!

Conversations with Vittoria

"I'm going to try not to pick my nose while the guests are here.  But I don't know.  It will be hard."

Conversations with Vittoria

Me - "V, what do girls love?"
V - "Babies."

The Great 2014 Snowstorm

We got a little snow yesterday. Schools were canceled.  These pictures were taken about the same time, above with no flash, below with.

We shoveled in shifts.

The next morning.

Can you see the fire hydrant?

The Ol' Amerwoman Sledding Hill

Just a little bit of snow on this end with a foot more in the forecast...So we went sledding at Mary's school. Like V's hat?

What about Katie's?

The others are sadly store bought.

Here's the big hill.  See that little ramp there? Take notice.

Alina's boots have no traction on them so she had to hold someone's hand every time she went up the hill or she would fall.

Remember that ramp? V caught massive air on that ramp. Here she is being a trooper going down after she fell. Little bit of the hair of the dog.

Finally...A Little Sweet and Sassy

Josh and I took the girls to Sweet and Sassy for their Christmas present on New Year's Eve. This is the before picture. Look how sad and not pretty they all are.

The package included a haircut.


And pedicure.

And then how happy they are once they are beautiful! :)

New Year New Face!

He said he'll start growing it out. My guess is starting today.

New Car New Challenge

I was trying to take a picture of Josh partying in the parking lot but this pfamily and their new van got in the way. End of an era. RIP Passat.

I saw this place on the Travel Channel and have been wanting to go ever since for two reasons, the Hellfire Challenge. The Hellfire used ghost chilies and included a chili burger, chili and six wings. There was a waver.

Josh took it very seriously. He forgot the "P" in Pfake, though.

And this beauty. The ten pound burger.

Derek ate two wings. Josh ate three.

Tears of joy. Not sure if you can see them or not.
