Carter's Glasses

Carter got his eyes checked this week and we found out that he is far sighted and has a severe double astigmatism. The poor kid needs glasses and the doctor said that he sees everything elongated. So, everyone looks like long skinny zombie people. When he put on his glasses for the first time he looked at me for about a minute straight. Then he looked around the room pointing at things and saying "wow". All night the look in his eyes has been like a whole new world opened up to him. So, I guess the poor kid really did need glasses. Now when Evan turns 2 and gets his glasses all the boys will have glasses. My little family of nerds.

Snow!

We got a bunch of snow the last couple of days and the boys have just loved it. They have been playing outside several times a day and for hours at a time. It's so fun to watch them all out having a blast. We didn't build a snowman this year but we did go sledding. I love the snow. It makes for some awesome family moments.

Evan love love loved the snow this year. Just look how happy he is.

Evan had so much fun sledding. No one was allowed to go down without him on the sled. Then he insisted on being pulled back up.

Allen and Carter had some friends come with us. So, I think they would have stayed all day and night.

When Evan didn't get to go on someone's sled he would try to sled down the hill on his bum or tummy.

Carter was so focused and in the sledding zone for pretty much the whole time.

Evan doing his best impersonation of a seal on an ice flow. I think it's pretty accurate.

Up at the top of the hill, I spent most of the time chatting with my ladies and giving kids a push start.

As always the hardest part of sledding is the hike back up.

This year Carter was all about sledding. If he couldn't get on with someone he just went by himself. He is getting so big. So, this is him coming down alone (commentary by Evan).

More Cake

This is the new cake I just made for a girl who was turning 15. She is really into crafts and she wanted the young women's colors. It was so much fun to make.
The cake all put together and done.
Just some of the little details. I had a good time doing this one.
