We took Jacob to his 1st circus this weekend!! We had so much fun!! Matt and his dad have gone to the circus every year since Matt was 3 until we moved to Michigan. Poppy & I were invited to tag along too!!

As we approached the pre-show on the floor, I was not sure who was more excited... Jacob or daddy!!

We went out on the floor and got a close up look at the pre-show!

Jacob even got to dance!!

The elephant came out and painted a picture!!

Matt loves the clown nose!!

Boxing- Jacob vs Poppy

Matt and Savannah were in town for the weekend. Luckily, Jacob woke up Saturday morning feeling much better so he got to hang out with them. Saturday night everyone came over to our house for dinner and video games. Jacob & Poppy had fun playing boxing... and Jacob won!!

There were no pictures allowed for the other games we played such as dance central!!

Dining Room

The dining room is almost complete. I bought a new rug but it is not quite big enough so I need to find a new one and return this one but other than that... I LOVE it!! We can't wait to have a meal at the table!!

Snow Storm #2

We got another snow storm last night into today. It is going to change to sleet and freezing rain tonight, so tomorrow morning should be another mess.

Yes, Jacob is sick and Yes, we let him go outside in the snow to play for a few min. We thought it would be fun to try out the sled in the backyard. That was a great idea!! Jacob loved it and we had so much fun. Jacob went down the first few times by himself.

Then I went down with him. The fence helped stopped us a few times!!

He even went down his new slide once...

After sledding, we came in and made snow cream. Jacob tried to say it was yucky until he tried it and then he said how yummy it was.

Tornado Jacob

Matt and I have finally decided to paint the inside of this house. Matt is doing an awesome job so far. Yesterday he needed some help so I was taping all the molding while he was paiting... which left Jacob some time to play alone in his toy room. When I went to check on him this is what I found!!
Jacob fell asleep and Matt called "not it" to cleaning it up!! It was much easier to put back together than I expected!!
