The winter blues, cabin fever, call it whatever you want, we have it at the Beck house. We are SOOOOOO ready for spring/summer!! Last week was a regular heat wave here in Utah and we saw some sunny days with 40 degree weather!! Break out the tank tops. Since it was down right swealtering, we went out front to throw around the balls and ride bikes. The boys almost didn't know what to think. It was actually warm enough to not have their gloves on them (which the HATE) so that was nice. AND it's been fairly snow free so the streets are dry enough to play on. Trying to find the bright side here. :) We long for the days of sweat and sprinklers. To talk the boys back in the house (after 45 min. of outdoor fun) I had to promise hot chocolate. (Reed)
They boys really really liked drinking it and had a good time saying, "MMMM, it's warm" (Grant)
Being the creative problem solover that I am, I figured out the value that comes with an icecream cone from McDonalds. .40 + .40= Two happy little boys.
Not to mention the personal joy of watching them eat it. :) It's a sight to behold.
Potty training update. Not much to update, they aren't. Grant wanted to try and use the potty yesterday and so we let him. He stood there for a good 5 solid minutes with no results. But look at those cute buns! He does insist on standing (know idea why) and has to have the elmo seat on the potty. Hey if it works I'll take it. :)

The snow was falling in Salt Lake before we left on our trip to San Diego for the Christmas Holiday. Jeff and the boys took advantage and made a big snowman.
The boys helping daddy build him.
Reed kept patting him and "helping".
And Santa brought some Mickey TOYS!! Just what they asked for!!
What a cutie!
Some videos from the trip:
