Snow Fun!

We've had Ryan, Laura, and Ella visiting on their cross country route from Florida to Spokane, WA. We haven't been snowed in, but it's been a lot of fun playing and watching all the snow fall. Laura and Ella are visiting for a few more days while Ryan completes their journey so maybe by then Ella will warm up to scary Uncle Adam.

We went to Old Chicago for dinner tonight (YUMMO!) and we've been watching the recap of Lost tonight in anticipation for next week's episode.

Ella really liked playing in the snow until Uncle Adam got too close, maybe tomorrow we'll go out and play some more if the windchill is above 0.

Future CinderELLA in the making, she decided to clean my floor with the dish towel.

Ella likes to wear hats- in the pictures above she's wearing a hat I had made myself, in the picture below she's wearing Max's hat. I'm making her a hat tonight for her to take with her to WA where she'll need it.

Max liked watching Ella in the snow from the safety of the garage. It sure is windy here.

Max has been learning to clap recently. Here's a demonstration of a half hearted attempt. He will hold one hand still and clap on it with the other hand. Too cute!

I've been trying for such a long time to get Max laughing on video, but he normally only laughs when I'm tickling him and therefor I cannot hold the camera too. But today he thought Daddy was HILARIOUS.

Great pictures! I wish the laughing video showed what Adam was doing (cause I saw it and it was funny).

I usually read your blog from google reader so I haven't seen the new header - love it!
We have an Old Chicago too - little slice of heaven.
We were given the outfit Max is wearing (blue with the puppy dog) and it is definitely one of my favorites!
Is there a better sound than a baby laughing? Keep Max small until Ben gets big enough and then they can play and laugh together :)

Love the clips of Max! I watched the one of him laughing like 5 times in a row! Love that sound! :)

Amber- Thanks! Old Chicago is the best- I could just eat the crust and if you haven't tried them, get the Italian Nachos. YUM!
Also, anything from Carter's is cute, that and babyGap, oh and Gymboree, and of course Janie and Jack.... Ugh, I just need to have a bazillion kids to fit in all these clothes. :)
