We got some new toys today from Miss Amy. Jake likes the rocking horse a lot!


Daffodils in the sun.


Jake will eat almost anything. Here is is enjoying Pad Thai. Unfortunately, as usual, Sammy was not nearly as appreciative. It was fun to play with, though!


Sammy helping Mommy and Amma.


The secret to a fabulous hairdo is the right product. Jake recommends chocolate pudding.


Sammy at Miss Isabelle and Lydia's makin' Valentines Day cookies!


Jake would really rather not nap. There's too much interesting stuff going on. So he usually crashes somewhere odd. Here, he's about to fall asleep half in and out of the doggie bed.


Sammy loves to help. Here he is making pancakes with Amma!


Jake watching the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. A Sussex Spaniel won best of show! (maybe related to Laddie?)


Sammy made a train, of which he is one of the cars, out of his new soft blocks from Auntie Marsha.


The bloody squirrels are having a party in our trash can/rubbish bin every day. The crazy animals actually ATE away the plastic bit of the lid that let's you lock it shut!


Waffles for dinner!


More silly sleeping.


Silly sleepy boy.

(Oh, sorry it's been so long since an update. It's just been a bit slow lately and I've not felt that inspired).

Today I spent several hours in Baltimore with Kevin. We got early spring fever as it was in the 50s! Kevin obviously took this pic, but cheating is justified here... poor Glenn hasn't seen me except on Skpe for over 2 months now! Hi honey!


Jake still won't crawl on his hands and knees. He's all about the commando action. But it doesn't stop him from getting into drawers and cupboards. Here he is thinking about doing some baking.


I bought and 'customized' these clocks for Mom when I moved to the UK. Now we use them to keep track of Glenn.


Jake has developed this super fuzzy hair on the back of his head. It's from lying on his back when sleeping but it's very silly looking!


Our Christmas poinsettia is still kicking around. We've yet to decorate the house with suitable knick-knacks and pictures so it's our one bright spot of color these days.


Sammy's first proper snow (excluding the bout of flurries we had in Exeter last year!). He gets his sock and trouser look from Daddy.
