Well, I've been meaning to update for a while now, but I haven't done it til now. Things have been pretty much the same, other than the fact I have a HORENDOUS head cold! YUCK! Kids are growing like weeds. They are so funny! Aleigha will, on occasion, come up to you and pretend to tickle you! She goes, "Tittle-tittle" and moves her fingers like she is tickling you. Hahaha! It's SO cute when she does this. And it is when you least expect it. Also, she is our yeller! It's amazing that such a loud voice comes out of such a tiny body! And, man, is she loud! She has definately made her presence known! If brother is doing something she doesn't like she lets him know, or if she is happy about something she will let us know! She is just L-O-U-D! Jon says that she is loud like Amanda was. She must have given Aleigha pointers on what would completely BUG 'Uncle Jon' before Aleigha was born. If she did, it's working!! :P Oh, anther thing about Aleigha, she is our Na-Kid! She LOVES being naked!!!!! It's very rare to find her clothed when I go in to get her when she wakes up in the morning. And, she likes to get undressed whenever possible! She will be clothed one second and then the next I will here from Jake yelling "Mom, Aleigha's diaper is off" or "Aleigha is taking her shirt off", Something like that. LOL She is quite the girl! Definately keeps us on our toes!
Jake is thoroughly excited for his birthday! Each morning he wakes up and asks if we can go to his birthday party. LOL I just have to tell him, "It's not your birthday yet. Another X days." He is so fun! Drives me crazy, but I love him!

About 2 weeks ago, I went outside with the kids and took some pictures of them playing in the snow. Jake had SOO much fun! Aleigha, on the other hand, didn't quite know what to make of all this cold stuff. She didn't like to be right out in the deep stuff, but stuck with the sidewalk. She would walk from the back steps to the fence and back. It was fun seeing them play. But, man, I am SOO ready for Spring!

This weekend we are working on getting things cleaned up and organized. We are planning on having a HUGE yard sale in the spring and are really trying to get things cleaned up. Also, we are trying to get things ready for if/when Krysten comes to live with us starting this summer. We have 4 months till she should be here. So, we have a LOT to do before then. Especially, since her room we are planning on putting her in is completely STUFFED to the gills of storage crap! We are still in the unknown stage of whether or not we will actually be able to adopt her, but we are getting ready none-the-less. We are just praying that everything will work out for her. She is such a sweet girl and deserves a mom and dad who will love her and give her the things she needs and deserves.

Anyways, that about it. Love you all!


Fun in the Snow
