JJ had to go back to school today. He was very excited to be going back on the bus. I meant to get a photo of him getting on the bus but I just didn’t get to it. But when I went outside I saw the neatest thing. His footprints in the snow, leading to the road where he got on the bus. And when I finally went to get the mail after dark – I got some pretty good snow EYE CANDY! 🙂
Joey, along with our friend PETE, made their first podcast tonight. They are going to do it weekly and they are talking about some of their favorite tv shows, politics, and other things. Joey really had a great time tonight!

Beth got to go back to preschool today and she was so happy to get out of the house. Lots of snow today and the kids were excited to wear their coats, hats and gloves. We did a little grocery shopping after preschool and then just hung out after JJ got home from school. Each of them got a shower and we put them in their new pjs and robes to go get Dad from work!

JJ really loves the Lightning McQueen Car he got from Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen for Christmas this year. It walks, races, talks, and is just a fun addition to his toy collection. Today I finally was able to capture his excitement for the toy!
This smile says it all!

Today was kind of a downer day. I just felt a little under the weather, a little out of sorts, and just not myself. Nothing particularly exciting happened today. It was just kind of a BLAH day. There’s only one thing you can do when this happens – and that’s forget healthy meals and go with comfort food. So for dinner some of my favorites were on the menu. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, Stove Top Stuffing, and for dessert came the Vanilla Ice Cream with hot fudge. YUM!

Before Joey left for his Friday night racquetball, he was working on his computer and JJ got really excited when he saw the Firefox logo on Dad’s screen. He kept saying a word that we didn’t understand. We rarely get details from JJ about what he does at school, so when he finally got the word he was saying across to us it was a real surprise. He was saying STARFALL and apparently it’s a program on the internet that they use at school that helps them to learn to read and other learning experiences. We thought it was so neat that JJ recognized it from the Firefox logo and that we were able to find it and now we can play it at home! It’s a great experience to have communication with JJ and to see what he is learning! A great day today!

The kids have been playing Hide ‘n Seek with their Dad lately and they totally love it and can’t get enough. I managed to snap a few photos of their game today. The kids took turns counting. They were so cute as they shut their eyes, leaned against the kitchen counters and counted – Beth to 10, JJ to 20. Both kids can’t contain their giggling when Dad is hunting them. They give away their hiding place every time. And it’s a hoot when Beth finds Dad because she shouts BOO! It was such a delight to watch the interaction of the kids with their Dad.

JJ loves Spiderman. Joey managed to get some Spiderman cartoons for him and that’s all he wants to do now is watch Spiderman or play Spiderman or be Spiderman. No matter how much his Dad tries to convince him that Superman is much better, JJ is completely convinced that Spiderman is the best superhero. Maybe we will convince him eventually. After all, his middle name is Clark.
Joey went to the Casetta’s house for a little while tonight to help Mike with his computer because as Beth said, “Dad is going to help EVERYBODY with their computers.”
And here is my completed layout for Week 2:
I used my Digital 365 Kits to create this layout!
