It's cold here and there is snow on the ground which is probably here to stay through February which means winter has finally arrived, and I kind of like it. The one bad part of it all is that Jack Frost decided to bring car troubles with him. And he decided to get both of our cars at once. My honda needs a new battery which we sadly discovered once I already had the kiddos buckled in, diaper bag packed, and ready to go play. Henry was devastated when I told him that the car was broken and that we couldn't go play, however I may have been more devastated at the fact that I wouldn't be leaving the house for the day. He just kept telling me that it needed new batteries. He was surprisingly right. Anytime something doesn't work he thinks new batteries will fix it. And our other car needs a new motor for the windshield wipers. Turns out that windshield wipers are a necessity for a Buffalo winter and we now get to buy a new motor...or never drive in a snow storm.

anyway....on to our crazy busy life. Thanksgiving was a blast. We went to Ohio again this year, and visited the Starkeys. The food was delightful but the company was even better. I love cousins.
I love this little girl. Don't you just want to squeeze her? I do it every day. And unfortunately for her Henry does too.

This kid is hysterical. I love that he talks. And I love the things he says. Like the other day when he told me that the flames on our gas stove are not dangerous, they are beautiful because they make blue fire. I explained to him that things can be beautiful but it doesn't mean they aren't dangerous and that we should NEVER touch fire no matter how beautiful it may seem. I also find myself arguing with him regularly. Who argues with a two year old? He drives me crazy sometimes. This is us waiting in line in the freezing cold to win $20 American Express giftcards the day after thanksgiving. It was a success and totally worth the freezing cold for $40. We took turns waiting across the street inside Barnes & Noble with all the kids so they wouldn't be hysterical. It was waaaay better than last year when Henry got sick and puked all over the floor and the perfume counter at Dillards.
