A Warm January Afternoon

77 degrees in January...it does not get much better than that. It was gorgeous today and could not have been a better day to play outside with the kiddos on their new swingset. We all were outside having a ball swinging, sliding, kicking the ball, and playing with Roxy. While Sam was enjoying the swing we started to practice saying Hi and Bye with him. He has been waving for awhile and we were trying to get him to talk. He got "Hi" down pat and is so proud of it. It really is too cute to hear him say it. We went to dinner with Mima and Pepa and he told them. It is too adorable. After dinner Toby and I went to Barnes and Noble (love that) and got some cheesecake to go from Cheesecake Factory. When We got home we offered some to Jack. He insisted that this was not just cheesecake but needed to be honored with a birthday candle. He wanted us all to get around the table and sing Happy Birthday. So we did just that...candle and all. I love seeing him create these situations. It made perfect sense to him and thus made perfect sense to me. We sang Happy Birthday to our late family pet, Wally, who would have celebrated his birthday this month.

What a perfect day with my amazing husband and silly boys. Thank God for my family...thank God for 77 degree weather.

What a wonderful day, wish we could have been included in it. :(

So funny that it was 77 degrees, Jack had no pants on but yet you are in long sleeves and pants! I bet you were still cold!

We had a 72 degree day the week of Christmas. Such a much needed blessing for our 2 rambunctious boys. Looks like you boys love their new swing set.

What adorable little smiling faces your boys have!! Sounds like a perfect day! My fav part though? That the boys aren't wearing any pants! It reminds me of my youngest, who when little would constantly undress herself (sometimes even at the store!LOL). We finally just let her go around the house in just her diaper, and she was happy as a clam in her diaper and dress-up hats, jewelry, and shoes! :) THanks for sharing those sweet pictures!!!

Ok, Jeremy thought my comment was not a nice one meaning that I was questioning your mommy skills. I was just referring to the fact that you are always cold, so please do not take offense to my words!
