Snow Excitement!

Well, in case you didn't know we have had some wintery weather around here lately. The first big snow storm came in about two weeks ago and it was bitterly cold so we didn't get to go out in play in it.  Finally, during the second big snow this past week, we were able to get out for a little while and "play" in the snow....

Can't you feel Josiah's excitement in this picture... all the pictures we took that day looked like this. At one point he asked to "goff" (aka - golf!). I don't think he is a fan of the cold weather like this mommy!

We did eventually find something he liked, going down the slide! With slick snow pants on and a little powdery snow you slide down pretty quick and easy - but still no excitement.


Hope everyone is keeping warm and safe.  I think we will stick to inside activities for a while.

Away in the Manager

Our dear little Josiah can be so sweet sometimes. This holiday season, Grandma taught Josiah the motions to "Away in the Manager." While we were at my parents Josiah did a little performance... please ignore the singing (it's not a Call family strength!)

Sharing the Purple Love

Grandma, Josiah, and Brece

On New Year's Eve my family headed to the Little Apple, Manhattan, Kansas to watch K-State men's basketball team take on University of Northern Florida. In case you didn't know the rest of my family bleeds purple... this Gorilla was just excited to take Josiah to his first basketball game. It was fun to show him in person the game that his mommy loved to play for so many years.

Josiah was a little overwhelmed by all the noise, action, people, etc. But overall it was a fun experience.  Cousin Brece is an old pro at K-State sporting events and knew exactly what to do during the "Wasbash" and when the team shot free throws, "woosh!"

What a fun way to spend New Year's Eve than with family!
