The wind was cold yesterday, but the sunshine was bright, and the streets were mostly clear of snow and ice, so we took JJ out for an after lunch walk.
What are you doing JJ? I asked
I'm concentrating. He replied.
It was a fun walk with a Superhero.
|He stopped in front of a wet patch on the sidewalk, closed his eyes and folded his hands.|
I'm concentrating. He replied.
|He did this in front of every obstacle along the route, then in true Superhero form, he jumped across puddles, climbed snow-hills, and moved clumps of ice with ease.|
|From time to time he did need a helping hand from Amma...|
|...but mostly managed just fine on his own.|
|Moving snow from here to there.|
|Digging for buried treasure on the front Lawn.|
|Conquering the electrical box|
|Throwing snow balls.|

Another year has come and gone, and birthday celebrations were the order of the day on Sunday
|JJ came over for a BD hug...|
|...then moved back to the chip bowl for a munchie or two.|
|Danica was in a rockin' mood, so no smiles were put on for the camera.|
|She settled in to help me open my present and read the card though.|
|She modeled the dress...|
|But let me get my hands on the sweater.|
|We had a Barbie fashion show...|
|then waited for dinner|
|JJ showed me how his new computer worked...|
|Then we got ready for cake and ice cream.. I had lots of help to blow out the candles.|

When JJ first walked in the door the other day, I thought he was just wearing a funny hat. Nope, it was his Ninja scarf.
He certainly makes us smile these days. Four year old little boys are just delightful!
|As soon as he took his coat off, he had a bit of trouble getting his Ninja jacket on just right.|
|He fussed and fumed with the belt for the longest time, but didn't want any help.|
|He finally got the belt threaded through the loops...|
|...and tied it perfectly in front.|
|Yes! Now I am ready to fight the bad guys.|

It was Winter Break last week, and we had a few days off, so we gallivanted around the county visiting the local Sugar Bush for pancakes and fresh maple syrup one day, and then headed into Ottawa to visit friends on another day. Not much blogging was done during our holiday, but I hope to get back into the swing of things this week. It was nice to be footloose and fancy free for a few days, and we made the most of it. On Thursday we were back on duty, and had Danica for a sleepover.
|She helped me make brownies, and quite enjoyed licking the bowl and spoons when we were done.|
|Getting every last bit of chocolate off the spatula|
|More chocolate on her face than in her mouth, but she had fun|
|After licking the bowl clean, she helped with the washing up with soap and water too.|
|I think her chocolaty face needs more attention|
|Putting the finishing touches on the snowflake brownie.|
