Joy's new words for today are "Yes" and "Wiggles" ...well, she can't fully say "wiggle" but she can grab their video and make a two-syllable sound that starts with "w". And she even watches for a few minutes before being distracted by something else. She's also still picking up signs. I taught her "paper" the other day, so now she can ask for that with her colors (crayons). She kinda mixes "please" and "hungry" but at least she says "please" now. For about two weeks she absolutely *refused* to say it. Would rather wait us out. I wonder where she got that from?

Her favorite words it seems are "Elmo" -- no longer "momo". About a week ago Sunday she clearly said "Elmo" and rarely uses "momo" to talk about the red monster. She also says Ernie pretty clearly. Can't get her to say Big Bird or Cookie Monster yet. Her fave sign is "cookie". Go figure…
ARGH!!!!! Sometimes I wonder why I had kids. I *KNOW* that I had some graph paper and I even saw it a few days ago. I also *KNOW* that my son DID NOT put away one of my Bibles as he swears he did because I saw it on the dining table and told him to put it away. So, I tell him to get the Bible this morning and he can't find it. It doesn't seem to be anywhere in the living or dining rooms. I'm kinda attached to that Bible too. And his -- his he left in the car, which my DH has today. I guess we can use the New king Jimmy version. Man, I want my Bible back!

OK, back to watching kids.

The Big Melt



Well, it's been a fun few days the last week. We usually get a little snow here on the valley floor, about 1/4 of an inch or so, just enough for a good snowball fight. We didn't have any last year and Mother Nature more than made up for it this year. We were snowed in! And asked by the local authorities to stay off the roads as much as possible.



Tim braved the weather and went to work. My home inspection has been reschuled a few times, but we are finally melting. Joy is not happy about it, not happy at all. She practically through a hissy fit the last few days because I didn't want to let her go out and play (well, it was ICY and she doesn't have the best balance).



A light dusting began on New Year's Eve. On New Year's Eve Josh showed Joy how to make a snowball. She was all for getting out and doing that some more during the whole time it snowed. We thought that was cool and that it would be gone by morning, latest, the next aftern…
