Our February Post

In our slow progression from our last blog, here's basically what we were up to in February.  For our more astute readers you may notice, at least in February, we seemed to favor our two blond-haired, blue-eyed short people. Not so sure what the other two were up to all month...
One of our favorite neighbors stopped by with an extra lemon miringue pie one day.  Oliver gave it a thumbs up.

Mrs. Warner is always coming up with fun crafty projects for her kindergarten class.  One day they came home as little Statues of Liberty. 

Aunt still fits!  Dad dressed C in her C shirt one last time before we officially retired it.  It's a 3-6 mos. onsie and she was 17 mos. in this pic. 

She has a thing for shoes.  Maybe this is why our internet monitoring software was giving me so much trouble downloading pics for the blog.

She is finally willing to sit still long enough for a fountain, at least occasionally. 

This little monkey was up late one night.  She decided she would rather enjoy a game of soduku than be in bed.  Watch out Grandma someone might be borrowing your book.

She also thinks she's one of the big kids.  She often finds the stool in the bathroom and drags it around the house, usually to "help" Mom in the kitchen.  She hasn't quite figured out that even standing on the stool the counter is still only eye level.

Sharing some of Dad's birthday torte.

Our preschool celebrated pajama day.  Tessa came home with monster feet.  Yikes!

Aunt Becky the body art crayons are a big hit. 

Some sort of fort was erected between the dining room and living room one day.  Mom missed out on all that fun.  Maybe next time.



Since we have some catching up to do we thought we'd start in the most logical place and work backward.  This is what we did in March, or at least what we've taken pictures of.
The Arcbhold schools celebrated Read Across America week with a Dr. Seuss theme.  Here is one of our Cat's in the Hat.

We visted the Taller's in the sprawling metropolis of Atlanta, IN where we found corn growing more than 6 ft tall in March.  Hmm...

   I guess this is what I get for trying to rearrange my pics.  Oh well.  It's all still here.

Of course George managed to also find a tractor for all that corn.  We did also get to see a helicopter and a sweet chopper.
This little turkey thinks she's big stuff and is often found on a dining chair.  She also loves things with wheels and even makes "vroom, vroom" noises.

Sometime late this winter we were told she was too little, in medical terms she was deemed as "failure to thrive".  So we started fattening her up the best way we know how.  Please don't get too alarmed she does also consume some fruit and veg occasionally, but she does prefer cake, cookies, and chocolate.
