A boy, his balloon, and the Mad Bomber

Gage's Valentine balloon is still going strong, as is his love for it. Both of these pictures were taken last weekend. Gage did not give up the balloon all weekend.

It was also very cold last weekend. Stephen brought out the Mad Bomber. You can say what you want about the MB, but it will keep you warm. I like this picture because it shows off Gage's 3 teeth. Gage has had only 3 teeth for quite a while. Tooth #4 shows no signs of coming through anytime soon.

Savannah and Stephen went to the circus today (next year, Gage and I will get to go too)...those pictures to come soon if I can figure out how to get them off the card. It amazes me that I have a job as a technology project manager!!! Boy, have I pulled the wool over someone's eyes!

I heart snow

Gage isn't such a big fan, but he does enjoy watching from the warmth of the living room. I bought this hat when I was pregnant with Gage...I'm so excited it finally fits!!! He's not as thrilled about it as I am. You can't really see it too well, but he's holding a red heart mylar balloon he brought home from school today. He held onto that balloon for a good hour and a half before I could sneak it away from him and hide it. It was really getting in the way of walking, crawling, climbing, etc.

Atlanta got some snow today...a lot more actually than I thought we would get. At last measurement, accumulation was 2 1/2 inches from the Barnett back deck. Savannah FINALLY got to build a snowman...something she has reminded us of ever since it snowed a year ago when we promised she could make a snowman and before we got out to do it, the snow had melted. The snow we had in early January was too powdery to even make a snowball.

Daddy helped...

Alice, recognize the snowman's hat?

The birds have been very happy ever since we brought home the Yankee Droll Flipper. I have yet to see a squirrel take a ride, but the bird seed seems to be lasting a lot longer!
