Since before Bethany's birthday, she has had a special greeting for Grandpa. She would lean in and give him a head bump hello and when it was time to go, a head bump goodbye. The other day she was "talking" to Pa on the phone and it was time to hang up so Grandpa said, "Give me a head bump" and well, watch the video to see for yourself how it went down.

Locks of Love

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Rebekah and I both had our hair cut in order to donate to Locks of Love. Rebekah had never had her hair cut and as long as she could talk said she "NEVER! Wanted her hair cut." Well, with A LOT of persuading, she did it. She wasn't very happy at first, but thought it was very funny when we went to Walgreens to pick up a prescription for a friend right after getting our hair cut and I couldn't find her (even though we were the only people in the store besides employees and she was 2 steps in front of me.) We laughed about that and then she fooled her brother and daddy at McDonald's that night! It was a nice way to cushion the blow. I was excited about her cutting it, but once she did I have to say I was sad that I had her do it. She looks SO much older now! :( They grow too fast and if I'd know that was going to make her "older" I would have waited longer. Anyway, it's already happened and I'm coping. A little girl will be happy to have some hair one day because of her. (They will be getting 3 pony tails each 10" long from us!) Such a worthy cause and will grow back. right?! ;)

SNOW SNOW and more SNOW!

I can't believe that we are sitting here in the middle of another snow storm this year. I don't think it's snowed this much in the last 5 years combined. :) Right now, as I look outside my front windows it looks like we are living in a snowglobe and someone shook us up! Snowed yesterday morning and then rained most of the afternoon and evening. Woke up this morning and there was a new dusting on the driveway. Now, there is atleast 3 or 4 inches out there. The kids are loving watching it snow and Ethan is ready to go out and play. Maybe tomorrow, or if we get brave enough this afternoon. Bethany is excited about seeing all the snowflakes flying and the birds sitting on the birdfeeder. Rebekah is happy to look out and see the giant snowflakes and see just how deep it is getting. Maybe Bill will take us sledding tomorrow. :) Following are some pictures from the past snow storms!
