Catchin' up...

Is it really February already?  We haven't really been up to anything all that exciting but we're having a good time anyway, guess life really is what you make it.  The cold weather has meant plenty of days spent indoors (and when you work from home this can make some days seem REALLY long) but we've found lots to do.  Jenna continues to smother her brother with love....at least that what she thinks, Garrett might just think all her attention is just plain annoying at times!  We spend lots of time with Jenna doing crafts, coloring, reading books and playing store and beauty salon...a couple of her favorites.  She also loves games so there have been plenty of rounds of Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, Old Maid, Go Fish, Memory and Guess Who just to name a few.  We're open to suggestions of new fun games.  She also learned how to play tic-tac-toe and legitamately beat her Uncle Travis, he was a little shocked that he lost :-).

Jenna comes up with plenty of fun games for her and Garrett to play too....
Jenna made Garrett one of her students along with all her stuffed animals.  He thought it was great fun sitting with all the animals around and listening to Jenna talk and talk and talk.
Jenna teaching Garrett how to play with the farm toys he got for Christmas, he actually paid attention to her for quite awhile!
Jenna's latest and greatest is covering Garretts jumperoo with a blanket and making him his own little tent.  By the look on his face he doesn't seem to mind too much
(he might actually like it since it's kind of like hiding from her)

A couple weeks ago Jenna was the Star Helper at Preschool.  She also got to celebrate her 1/2 birthday because she has a summer birthday.  It was so fun to spend the morning in her classroom with her!
Garrett is a healthy and happy 5 month old.  We love him to pieces....especially those cheeks!   No surprise he loves his cereal, it is food afterall.  Rolling, giggling, drooling like crazy, trying to sit up, jumping like crazy when you stand him up....he's such a content and happy baby....we're having so much fun!
