Squirmin' Sherman

Story time starts out with both kids in the upright position,
That doesn't last for long though.

Walk with a Superhero

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.
He stopped in front of a wet patch on the sidewalk, closed his eyes and folded his hands.
What are you doing JJ? I asked
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.
It was a fun walk with a Superhero.

Birthday fun

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.

Ninja Fighter

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.
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.
He certainly makes us smile these days. Four year old little boys are just delightful!

The pirate and his sister

Kids were here bright and early Monday morning, and brought sunshine along with them for the day. 
Captain Hook is ready for action.
Sister climbs on board his pirate ship before she heads out to catch the school bus
Posing for a picture with the necklace Aunt Alycia gave her...
then off to fight more bad guys
Once last pose then off to school for the day.

Busy Week

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.
