Playing in the snow!!

Jack is loving the snow! Reid has been skeptical. The post-holiday snow was fun for daddy and Jack. They built a small fort and threw snow balls...Jack even helped shovel!

Holiday Wrap-up

It's been busy around here and I haven't stayed up on my posts. The kids had a great Christmas and Santa was good to them. We did the Elf on a Shelf this year, Jack and Reid enjoyed looking for Rupert each morning.

We went to see the extended Hakes family before Christmas and then did Christmas Eve with my side and Christmas Day with Dustin's side.

Jack started preschool this month. I still can't believe he's old enough for preschool but he is enjoying it! I drop him off in the morning and Grandma picks him up in the afternoon. He knows he is going to see "Miss Tarrah" and meeting new friends. We get a daily note with his mood for the day, how much he ate and how long he naps. I love the great notes!

Here are some updated Jack pictures...he's getting sooo big!!!

New desk

Dustin and I took last week off work to get some stuff done around the house. The boys spent some time with Grandma Sally and Grandpa Fritz, so we had time to work. We painted the majority of the downstairs level and built a new desk for my office. The desk turned out great!! Dustin built everything from scratch! Here are the pictures from the project.

Fall festival

This weekend was the fall festival here in Zionsville. We took the boys into town to watch the parade on Main Street and then went down to the park. The boys love seeing the fire trucks and police cars, they didn't care for much of the rest of the parade! I didn't get too many pictures but a couple before the parade started.

Trying out the blogger app...

So, I've downloaded the blogger app in hopes that it'll allow me to post all the pictures from our phones much easier! We will see. Now for updates on the kids

Jack- it is hard to believe he is going to be 3 in less than 2 months. He's doing so well and becoming such a big boy. Here are some of his favorite things: playing outside(he wants to go out as soon as he wakes up), playing golf, talking about either basketball or football, riding his tricycle, anything to do with horses! Milestones: potty trained(daytime), sleeping in a big boy bed, dressing/undressing himself. Talking in sentences and remembering everything!!

Reid- loves watching and trying to keep up with his big brother, playing outside, the sandbox, throwing food on the floor, drinking(tons) milk. Milestones-running, throwing a ball, climbing, saying tons of words, signing more.

They are keeping us busy, busy, busy! We are looking forward to new exciting things this fall, Jack is starting preschool after his birthday and Reid will be able to have some personal time with Grandma or Mommy depending upon the day!

Here are some updated pictures of the boys (and a couple of Kate too)
