What to do with all that energy?!

Claire is a mover! She always has been. I think that's why she was so tiny when she was born, she was even exercising in the womb! Now that she can stand she LOVES to jump. She wears our arms out jumping on our laps. So Matt stumbled onto this ingenious "horizontal baby jumper". (She got too interested in the camera, so you only get to see a sample of how hard she was working.) I was thinking that if I duct tape her feet to a chair or her crib or something, she can just go all day. The beauty of it is that when she finally wears herself out she can just close her eyes and go to sleep. What do you think? Should I apply for a patent?

Winter Fun

Monday we had an incredible snowfall. Just last week it was looking like we only had a few more days until the last remaining snow patches around the yard would be gone for good. We were starting to think about gardens and yardwork and bringing the bikes back up to the garage. Then Monday morning we woke up to over a foot of snow on the ground with no sign of stopping anytime soon. By the time it finally did stop late Monday night we had 20 inches of gorgeous, fresh powder outside. This was the kind of snow that brings tears to the eyes of skiers everywhere. The kids had so much fun playing in it and I was VERY grateful again for Matt's snowblower! Here are a few pictures from last month when Matt took Nicole, Spencer and Paige ice fishing. They had a great time but as you can see from the last picture, the little ones were through well before Dad was!



And last of all, I thought I would throw in this picture of Claire. She has learned to pull herself up to anything that will hold still for more than 5 seconds. Such a happy girl!!
