snow day part 1

Orson loved waking to the sight of snow!  We bundled up and headed outside to explore Orson's first Oregon snow...

waiting for snow...

Today we brought in a few flowers from the yard... 
we wonder how all the outdoor blooms will fare in the cold...
No real snow yet but Orson's fingers are crossed...

so many choices...


As Orson approaches the age of two, he is faced with many choices. Like which swing to pick or (gasp) whether or not to nap...

valentine's day

Orson loved picking out a Valentine's balloon for Daddio...
And he loved playing with the balloon...
We loved decorating with heart lights and banners...

Orson loved finding new blooms in our yard...

At the bookstore this little girl loved Orson...   Hope you all had a lovely day!

scenes from sisters week 2011












Orson's Aunt Kristin & Aunt Marty came out to see us last week!  We shared stories, played outside, drank rootbeer floats, shopped and needle-felted...  can't wait to do it again!

sunny day

We thought our snowbound families and friends back in the Mid-West would like to see a fun day Orson & Ayla had in the sun...The kiddos thought it would be fun to wear each other's hats...
And they switched swings...
They raced up and down the little hill in our yard...
 Orson led the way on our walk through the "jungle"...
 Ayla saw an alligator and Orson spotted a few monkeys...
They played on the playground...
There were a lot of smiles...




Hope everyone is safe and warm!
