All Tied Up

This is Ruby's latest obsession that is starting to get on our nerves. She loves to tie things up:

Any shoelace or spare bit of string, Bobby's ties or any belt that is lying around is not safe. She twists and ties them up so well that it'll take us a good 5 minutes to unwind them. The shoes are especially annoying because we usually don't realize she's done it until we need to put them on when we're leaving.

We got quite a bit of snow last week and invited some friends to go sledding with us on Saturday. We had so much fun. This was Ruby's first time really sledding and she loved it, she even went down by herself. There were a few tears shed when she hit a ramp and flew off her sled and face planted in the snow. But other than that she had a blast. Jack, on the other hand, did not have fun at all. He spent most of his time in some stage of an emotional breakdown. He cried when snow got in his face going down. He cried when we were pulling him back up the hill in the sled and he fell over. He cried when we put him down on the ground so we could help Ruby. You get the idea.

This picture may document his only halfway happy moment. We buried all the kids in the snow and he was quite content moving the snow around with his hands.

Needless to say, we didn't stay too long at the sledding hill. But we did come home to doughnuts and hot cocoa.

And that made Jack one very happy boy.

Snuggles in the morning...

Ruby often asks to climb into the crib with Jack when he wakes up. There's usually sweet snuggles and lots of cuteness.
