oh january, i never really know how i feel about you! some days you are just super cold and slow and i struggle. despite my feelings, we have had a wonderful past few weeks for the most part, and i wanted to share some of the photos we’ve taken here and there during it all.
right now, we are in vermont enjoying a little road trip with friends to get some skiing with the little ones in! i thought new york was cold, but wow! vermont you are like 20 times colder. haha! will share more from our little trip soon. in the meantime, a few photos….
the kids are the silliest requesting we make homemade snow cones on freaking cold winter days! they just love this kind of stuff though! (ps. we blogged some of our favorite homemade snow cone recipes here last summer! THIS is the snocone machine we use, and THESE are where you can get the reusable silicone cups.)
also, super hero masks all day every day. they do live among us. and eleanor is the leader of them all! she’s the coolest daughter anyone could ever ask for. who else can pull off this kind of look?!
and this sweetheart rocking my day every day. he’s been a little bit clingy lately, always wanting to be in my arms (or papa’s). i can’t complain about it too much though, although he’s getting so big and so very heavy!!! i feel like my arms get a workout all day long!
a lunch date with my love at bar pitti in the village. we love that place so much. ps. a throwback post from way back in 2008 when my family was in town and we had my graduation lunch at bar pitti after the festivities ended at juilliard! OH WOW!
this photo is from a few weeks ago, but it makes me laugh so hard because samson wanted josh to keep flipping him upside down but he was so proper always holding his shirt as to not flash anyone and show off his belly! haha! this boy makes everything so much fun. ps. that is paper snow falling from his shirt pocket!
new baby sneakers for mister conrad! are anyone else’s kids feet incredibly wide?! most shoes are too narrow for conrad and we’ve noticed the sides of them have been rubbing on his pinky toes! i felt so bad when i noticed that the first time last week. fortunately these little new balance kicks are “extra wide” size. i can’t get enough of his chunky little legs and teeny tiny shoes!
BIG changes taking place in our little nursery! BUNK BEDS!!!!! and a trundle bed underneath for mister conrad! is this even doable or am i being ridiculous!? we shall see. we don’t have everything quite set up just yet, but within the next few weeks we are hoping to have a serious bed situation happening in there. i’m so sad to see the toddler beds go because i’m super sentimental like that, but conrad is ready for a big bed and we think this new set up is for the best for our family! although we’ll know for sure in a few weeks time. cross your fingers for us!
the holiday train show at grand central is always something we love this time of year! we finally made it over there last week and while i was just thinking maybe samson had outgrown his train obsession a bit, i was wrong. it was fun to watch him try to get conrad excited when the train came by them! eleanor on the other hand politely asked me after maybe ten minutes or so if it was time to go yet! haha. i love that she’s kind of over it. and meanwhile, after we left the train show and were turning the corner in grand central, samson held my hand and asked so sweetly if we could go back to see the trains just for one more minute?! it was so sweet. josh stayed with E and C while i took him back to the trains so he could spend a few more minutes with them. i told him he could take as long as he wanted. he really soaked it all in.do you see this little boy just longingly watching his trains?! so sweet.
and these last two photos were from christmas eve, but i realized i never shared them on my blog so i wanted to make sure i did because i love them! this was back when the weather was insanely warm and we were all on a sugar high from josh’s ginger cookies! haha! eleanor asked me last night how many days until it’s christmas again. :( it was definitely a christmas i think she might remember!
have a great day you guys! and any of you from vermont?! what’s one thing you recommend in the burlington/stowe area?
