Our little boy. I love newborns. Yes, they keep me up at night, but all day you can't get any more precious. He is already changing and looking less like he did when he was first born. How fast these last 2 weeks have gone. How fast these last 4 years have gone. Just over 4 years ago, I had 0 kids, now I have 3! I am so blessed.

After a snow-less Christmas and a very warm December that didn't allow for much more than an inch or 2 of snow at a time, we finally got a couple days of beautiful snowfall last week. The girls headed out to play a couple of different times and then would come in to warm up with some hot chocolate. Henry kept me company inside and I'm so glad that I can send the girls outside together to play in the backyard. I love to "spy" on them playing together. It melts my heart.
I love the snow! Especially when I can stay inside and watch it falling without having to go anywhere. It's so peaceful and relaxing.

I know it's a bit after Christmas but I couldn't post some of these projects since I made them to give away as gifts for Christmas to people who read my blog.
Magnolia and I made these reindeer cookies to share, eat and leave for Santa. Super easy and super cute. Just make peanut butter cookies, roll into balls, press flat slightly and pinch bottom have to make that part thinner. Then while still warm, but after you have removed them from the cookie sheet, place M&M eyes and nose and chocolate covered pretzel antlers. Santa approved!
these Directions but made one change. I got beeswax pellets because it was easier and when I added the wick I curled it around a stick that was at least as long as the width of the jar (mine was a broken skewer) to have better control of the placement of the wick. I obviously wanted it centered.

This past week has flown by. Dan heads back to work tomorrow or Tuesday after being off for 2 weeks. Real life is about to set in....
This little guy just gets cuter every day. I could just sit and look at him and do nothing else.
A part broke in our furnace sometime yesterday. We noticed that it was chilly going to bed last night but didn't think anything of it until this morning when it was freezing. Luckily we have THE BEST furnace repair man who came out 10 minutes after calling him this morning and fixed it. Seriously if you need any work done on your heating or AC and you live in South Bend, call K&B Appliance. We were all bundled up in hats and sweatshirts this morning before he came out.
Here are just a couple pictures we have taken in the last couple days of Henry.
