People who say they "love" the snow don't have to live in it. This is my newest conclusion about the snow. It started snowing today much to my shagrin. The boys did get a kick out of it though. They kept saying "It's snow it's snow it's snow". I'm just bummed. I hate it. It's wet and cold and it means we can't play outside. Oh well.
So everyday when I get dressed I put the boys on my bed to play with their toys and watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Grant was cracking me up today. He had his Mickey ears on with his sunglasses and his Mickey book and, ofcourse, his net.
Recently in the Beck house we've been trying to eat together as a family. The boys are old enough now that they will eat what we eat and at the same time as us. It's been really nice.

Not much to report this week. Grant had a sinus infection before my sister got here last weekend and now Reed has one too. I've been getting up in the middle of the night to help keep him medicated so Mommy's a little tired this week. Jeff took Reed to the store and he got to push his own cart. He was soooooooo excited.
We got some family pictures done today at historic Wheeler Farms. We had a great time and can't wait to see the proofs. Stay tuned.......

It was a really fun week/weekend with my sister Kristen and my niece Alexa visiting from San Diego. We started the week with our normal stuff and Reed has decided that his baby Elmo needs to come every where with us.
On Thursday before Kristen got here we went to the health department and got our H1N1 flu shots. Afterwards we were a little sad so I promissed to get them some fries. (Grant)
Mr. Archie Dog loves it when we get fries. He is kindly asking Grant to share.
We had a blast with Kris and Lexa. We went shopping while the boys took their nap and went to build a bear workshop. Alexa got a bunny and some cute outfits for her.
After the boys' nap we went to the scarecrow fest in Thanksgiving point and saw the barnyard boo. They had animals to look at and feed and they had face painting, pony rides, and games.

BRRRRRRR, it's getting cold outside. The boys and I usually play outside in the mornings for a few minutes and it's been getting colder. Here's our cute neighbor "baby Ava" playing with us. She's all warm in her cute snow outfit.
The boys have gotten really into playing catch together. So cute.
Reed's turn to throw.
Jeff and I found this AMAZING park near our house. The best part of it is that the boys can do the whole thing without any help at all. (Reed)
They have a "big slide" that Grant can do all by himself.
Reed was so cute the other morning. He decided that he needed to wear Jeff's socks. He was putting them on over his jammies. Too cute.
Julia came to visit us on Monday and we had a blast. We went to the mall and did some shopping (ofcourse) and on the way back Reed made us laugh with his glasses. He was just sitting there like there was nothing funny about his glasses.
The next day we went to Gardener Village to see the witches. They have these super cool witches all over and you can just walk around and look for them. Julia with the boys.
We went with our good friend Krystal and her kiddos. Here are the boys with Brianna.
The only way we could get Grant near this witch in the seat was to have Julia sit there first.
On Friday we went downtown to Bruges Waffles and Frites. Since Julia's return from Europe, she has been very very interested in the Belgian culture. ;) So we heard a commercial for waffles and fries and went downtown to enjoy.
Reed by the sign.

The boys have recently become very interested (obsessed) with my shoes. They love to go into my closet and try on all my shoes. Then Reed decided he needed to wear them around.
These bronze ones don't match his jammies that well. He looks better in my black leather pumps.
And since we live the line "monkey see monkey do" Grant also decided he needed to wear my shoes around. I don't mind though because now I have pictures to show at high school graduation, their weddings, and any other important life events.
I know the picture quality on this is terrible, but the story is sooooooo funny. I went to get dinner last Friday night and Jeff was in charge of making sure the babies went to sleep. They had on their new "mickey" jammies and were tucked in. Apparently the zipper is easy to open and Jeff went into check on them and found Grant like this. So being a good daddy he took an picture and sent it to me with the title "Look what I found"
