Baby, It's Cold Outside

Here's what's going on in the Holman household:

  • Banks is learning to ride the tricycle.
  • His legs are about an inch too short for the full pedal rotation.
  • We've thought of tying some styrofoam blocks to the pedal to help his little legs.
  • Hughes has been forced to ride either his scooter or bike.
  • We haven't been outside to play in about two weeks.
  • I finally broke down today and went outside for a quick bike ride.
  • Law school starts back tonight for David.
  • The one thing I love about this time of year are the oyster roasts - YUM!
  • I'm dreaming of warmer weather and beach vacations.
  • Hughes and I have been working on the alphabet during his quiet time.
  • Hughes drew a picture about volcanoes and hot lava today at school.
  • Banks used the potty today on his own accord - I was totally surprised!
  • I'm sweating everybody out of our house with our logs on.
  • Charlie is going to have a rude awakening when this weather warms up and he's back outside all day. (FYI Charlie is our dog)
  • I'm ordering Charlie a bark collar tonight - one that will bring him to his knees!
  • We missed church pictures for the directory because I totally forgot about it. Not because we haven't been there.
  • I made beef stew using bloody mary mix again and it is so delicious.
  • David will have it for lunch tomorrow.
  • I must have messed up the salt because it's a little (a lot) too salty. Oh well.
