Last weekend Patrick and my Dad went snowmobiling in the UP so Mom came to hang out with me and the boys. The guys were with my Dad's buddy from high school - and we were lucky enough to have a play date with the ladies in their family.
Maddie is just a little older than James and they really have a good time together.
They spent much of the morning chasing each other around the house or playing trains!
Maddie also liked playing with Isaac --- she is practicing for when she becomes a big sister!
All 3 ladies wanted some baby time --- so cute :)
The big kids worked on a craft project --- a valentine that says, "I (heart) you to pieces!" and then the glued little pieces of paper in the heart. James' heart was mostly green and Maddie's was mostly pink --- clearly favorite colors showing through!
We had a great time and hope to get together again soon!
The rest of the weekend was pretty low key - we were able to get some stuff done around the house and of course play!
I didn't take a lot of pictures (weird, I know!) but managed to snap a couple before Grammy left on Sunday.
We are working very hard on sharing - Isaac wants whatever James has and when he gets his hands on it (even if Jimmy is done playing with it) James gets a little worked up --- "No Ike! - that's MINE!" It is pretty humorous that Isaac really can tell what are Jimmy's favorite things!
Isaac still isn't "crawling" but can certainly move where he wants to go. He has even started to put himself up on things so we pulled out the walker and he is a fan! (Thanks again Eric and Tara!)
Look at this big kid!
The highlight of James' weekend - getting Elmo slippers!
He loved wearing Jack's Lightning slippers at Christmas and I have been looking for something for him over the past few weeks. He was pumped when we found these and pretty much wants them on at all times!
James new trick from the weekend - launching himself from his bed onto the changing table. He only makes it about 50% of the time (I think his success rate has gone down since wearing the slippers) but it hasn't stopped him from trying!
Didn't get many photos from the guys - but here are a few.
The snow was not as impressive as last year - but the trails were still great and they had a fantastic time.
Highest point in Michigan.
Bring some of that snow back down here please!
