Finally settling and having fun!

Hiya friends and fam! It's almost the end of January and we are finally getting into a groove. We still do have a TON of huge plastic ziplock bags to go through and a garage that's full of junk but our house is starting to come together and it isn't quite as time consuming as it was! My parents are coming up in a couple of days and I am hoping to take advantage of their babysitting services and crank through some of the last organization stuff that's needed.
But we have been having fun too! Lots of winter fun. Cy is just blowing my mind on ski's this year. Somehow he got really good over the summer -- even though he obviously wasn't on ski's at all! He skied down the "big hill" on his own last week! AND that was in zero degree weather. It was funny because I made him go in because MY toes were starting to hurt! he would have stayed out longer. We'll see what happens this week when the predicted high is negative two degrees. Not much different than the 5 or 6 degrees it was last week, right!?

 Playing hockey with Boppa
 lots and lots of outside time!
 stinkeye Cy
 Arlo's first haircut. On a whim, right before nap. He was so tired he sat there in a daze. Didnt cry or flinch a bit.
 Boppa sometimes picks up Cy in his bus and takes him to preschool!!! Cy is so proud!
 For Christmas the boys got an aquarium. Cy named his fish Rufus "because he wants a dog" and Arlo's fish Clementine because "its Arlo's favorite morning snack." Pretty cute names for a 4 yr old, eh?
 Cousin Jens made the boys these super soft blankets. We use Arlo's in the car daily in this frigid weather and Cy has faithfully slept with his every single night since we got them!
 One weird day it was rain-snowing so the boys played outside in their spring rainsuits.
 They tackled me to death, In fact it seems like that's all they do ALL the time - tackle me. Tackle eachother. I hope its true that boys show their affection through physical roughness. If it is, I am really really really loved.
 Typical night. Arlo in a costume and cy running laps in his running clothes.
 Our risque master bath. It is "tongue and cheek" literally the cheek part I guess. We totally painted the whole thing - cabinets and all and it felt a little prissy so I added some art that makes us laugh. And boy does it ever! It's just a poster I can switch out at any time but it makes me laugh daily so I am not going to switch it for a while! It's an Andy Warhol in case you want to get one for your bathroom.
 Patrick was the Godfather at Stevie's baby's baptism. Stevie is Cy's Godfather.
 it was really sweet
 emmer boys trying to wash away their multitude of sins in the holy water.

 we live three blocks from an old school malt shoppe with burgers and wicked malts. Look out fat pants, here I come!
 skier Cy on the magic carpet.
 dada and the boys having a meeting at Patrick's office. We visited one day, toured his machines and then went to lunch.
 sweet moments.
We have been putting our flu vaccines to the ultimate test. Between school and these indoor playgrounds... we know it is lurking nearby but we are having fun while we can! And washing our hands every 2 seconds.

Stay warm and stay healthy!!
