General update on the 4 of us

As I sit here little, powdery snowflakes are falling. I absolutely love winter time! Snow is so beautiful...ok, when it starts to melt it's not all that great anymore...dirty and slushy, BUT it's still nice to look out the window and see a blanket of white everywhere. Growing up in the tropics you'd think I'd miss the warmth and beaches... but nope, I always wished I was around the winter. My mom was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and would tell me and my brothers stories about playing with her siblings sledding, making snowmen, etc. Nathan looks out the window every morning and says, "Noman?" ( translation: snowman). He wants to build one so bad...but the last 2 days that it's barely snowed hasn't given us enough to cover all the grass. Maybe today.

Micah is doing great. He has the most adorable smile, one dimple on his right cheek. When we tickle him he has this laugh, it's hard to describe, but it's like it physically hurts him to when you're done tickling he finally lets out a laugh of sorts... all the while smiling. We have him on a pretty good schedule. He sleeps thru the night!! Woo-hoo!!! He is a hearty eater and is very picky about his bottle being late.

Nathan is full of life! He really loves to play with other kids. His vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds. It's funny how passionate he is about some things. He loves to cook and is a great helper in the kitchen. Danny or I will give him a bowl and put some flour in it while we cook and he'll mix it forever. Nathan is also learning to set the table and is very good at it. Now if we could just get him to potty train!!! Everyone that I've talked to has said "Do not force him!" So we're not...but good grief, the kid is old enough in my opinion... plus diapers for 2 kids is starting to get old :) He's on that road though, he comes to us with a diaper and wipe when he's wet. I'm praying VERY soon we'll have this done.

Danny & I are good. We'll celebrate 8 years of marriage this year. I cannot believe how time flies!! It's seems, at times, like it was just yesterday that we were dating. A memory that comes to mind: Danny, Justin, Priscilla, Trisha, Chris, & I... there were a few others I know, but we were the usual gang...anyway, we had all been out to eat and were racing to get back to the school. I took a short cut and immediately knew there was no way I was going to be able to back out now... but I took a back road to the campus parking lot and the chains were already up (late at night for security they only allowed one entrance) so I jumped the curb and sped along the grassy area that surrounded the parking lot, it was quite bumpy.... I could see the other cars coming and so I flew off the curb again and before I could pull into a parking spot I heard a horrible noise and thud, so I powered thru and prayed that my car kept coming with me! I got scared that I had ruined my car and vowed I'd never do that again..haha! Oh, I think I won though... I'm pretty sure Danny has another version, but I wrote mine first and it's my word against his.... unless Trish or Priscilla read this and remember anything different...if it's not on my side then keep it to yourselves, hahaha!! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Have a great day!
