J and our  friend Erin were making some frosting for some brownies. It was super tasty, and J enjoyed the chance to help out in the kitchen.

New Walmart

We went to check out the new Walmart in town today. It was super busy, as can be expected, and we came across this random bison. It made for a great laugh.

Computer matching

J has been enjoying doing matching games at the library. He's also been getting a lot better at using the mouse to do it. It's been a lot of fun to watch.

Bike riding!

J really wanted to ride his bike, but he also really didn't want to take off coat gloves or boots.

Great harvest

It's been a while since we've been to the "bread store" for a free slice of bread. We needed to do something else next door, so we decided to stop for a slice.

Tribble ear muffs

We needed to go to Walmart for something and happened to wander through their clearance section. I saw these ear muffs and started laughing. Quite a bit. :)

Puffin Rock

J was taking pictures while we were watching a show today and that was apparently all the pictures that got taken today.

Using the pedals

J has been working so hard at figuring out the pedals on his bike. He wants to ride like Mom and Dad! He's finally basically got it down, and couldn't be happier about it.

not a rug

So.... This was supposed to end up as a woven rag rug. It didn't turn out that way. It's not the best picture of it, but it definitely turned out as a basket. At least I got some good experience, and know what I did wrong?

Free donut

We've had a coupon for a free donut hanging around for quite a while. I decided to mix things up to get out of the house by going to redeem it. J loved the short walk, and loved the treat for a snack

J picked some paint off of our bathroom door one day while I was in the shower leaving him unattended (which is why I hate taking a shower without Drew home... but that's a conversation for a different day) and we discovered a beautiful wood door under 3 layers of paint. We decided to take off the paint and refinish it. It's turning out to be more of a project that originally thought, but we're excited to see how it turns out.

Blood bound

it's a poor picture of it, because we were putting it away when we remembered to take a picture, but it's a fun game, of intrigue and betrayal.

We went to the DI today to find J another pair of pants or two, and discovered this huge clock. Where was this when we were looking for Christmas presents?

at the police department

We needed to renew our parking permit today, and J loved being able to "drive" this car while I filled out the paperwork and waited in line.

Story time

J has had little interest in actually going in for story time (who wants to sit still and listen to stories at the library anyhow when there are so many other things to look at?!) but when he saw that this week's craft was a star wars hat, he immediately ran in and grabbed one for himself.

Star Wars Guys

The ultimate favorite Christmas present this year was potato head Star Wars guys. J absolutely loves these guys and plays with them all the time. :)

We had some neighbours move in recently, who left a bunch of boxes in the hall. J enjoyed examining the pile and even climbing through one or two that were huge and open on either end. We wanted to take some home with us, but no one answered, so we weren't able to ask if they were done with them.

visiting Dad's work

Drew has been the only one at work over the break (even his boss hasn't been there), so we came up to visit for a while today. J enjoyed sitting in their computer wagon.
