So here are some of our "keep ourselves occupied in the winter" activites...
We take shopping trips to Asheville
And we get donuts
And sometimes we wear out our Aunt Devan too
We play with toys
And take lots of selfies
We practice our dental play dough skills
Micah works out with me
We make lots of hot chocolate.
On this particular day, Micah told me, "Mom, today is a good day for hot chocolate!"
How do I resist that?
We go the Bibi and Papa's house and let Uncle Ian serenade us
We watch Aunt Devan...well be Aunt Devan
We dress up as Superheros
We started having play dates at our house
So much cuteness!
We went out to dinner with Uncle Ian before he left for his last clinical at the beach.
When he finishes and passes his exams, he will be Dr. Youmans!
Micah went exploring with his Papa
Micah helped me clean
We made bracelets
And I took more pics of this cute baby
We (read Micah) took out every toy in his room and then let Kade crawl through the mess
Micah almost got lost in the mess
We practiced our golfing skills
We started to learn to play together
Kade started exploring
More car trips
Who doesn't like popsicles in the winter?
I am going to pause here for a minute on this smiling face. Kade was really sick this winter. He had RSV as well as many viruses, and later in the year he ran a fever for like 10 days. I have also learned he runs very high fevers like 104. It really scared me when it started happening. The doctors told me some kids just run really high fevers and he is one of those kids. He wasn't sick the whole winter and we got lots of these great smiles, but I am very thankful that season is over!
Lastly, right after Christmas, we went to explore Devan's wedding venue! We took our team aka sweet friends to help us look at it and start making decoration decisions.
And we finished the fun day of planning with lunch at a Thai restaurant.
We are so thankful for these sweet ladies!
