you lead. i'll follow.

this past weekend we took a trip to the texas tech museum for a valentine craft event. we passed a set of stairs on the way to the craft room and i was wearing aplin. needless to say, our craft time lasted all of 4 1/2 minutes.  there is little crafting to be done when you have an 18 pound, grabby-hand baby attached to the front of you. not to mention a boy so focused on the stairs he hadn't climbed, he didn't even try to eat the glue or put beads up his nose. 
i decided to forget the craft and let mclain explore the museum. life is so much easier when you don't have an agenda and you're just along for the ride. with that said, mclain you lead and aplin and i will follow.

hugs and kisses~s.

snow day + a new job

winter days are so much better with snow on the ground.

^^^mclain patting his leg, calling buster to come. he's such a little person. it's the cutest.^^^
more snow is headed this way!!! 
i am so excited about a new opportunity for our family!
i got a job at a local kids day out program. it's 2 days a week. 
i'm working at the front desk, which means i get to hold aplin and peek in on mclain whenever i want. 
mclain gets to go to music class and learn how to share fun toys with his new friends and aplin gets to cruise around the church in a stretch stroller!
^^^she LOVES it!^^^
i couldn't ask for a better opportunity for our family! 

hugs and kisses~s.
