Happy Chinese New Year

Miles had a parade at school today. Although I think he had fun, it did end in tears.

Here he is with his "Year of the Snake Hat" handmade by Miles.

In eager anticipation of the parading!


Walking with his buddy.

...and here are the tears. He told me he got scared, but really he got in trouble for trying to climb the stairs instead of parading around the tree. Do not worry, he recovered quickly.

Feeding the giraffe


Miles recently threw a penny in a fountain and wished for a Bengal joke. Anyway, I think this zoo experience is close enough.

I guess Oregonian is a dominant gene

This winter, one of Miles' favorite things to do is put on the galoshes his Nana gave him and go stomp in puddles. Too bad we only have puddles a few times a year.

Just because it is Monday

Here are some Miles' giggles. I hope they brighten your day as much as they did mine.

Miles' Promo for Appleberry Farm

While in Wisconsin, I had the pleasure of helping Dave and Connor make apple cider. Miles watched a little of the process and then quickly learned that Appleberry apple cider is his favorite beverage ever! Below is his testimony.

Family Reunion in Madison, WI

Miles, Drew and I had a wonderful time in Madison. One of the highlights was getting to watch Miles follow his cousin Ethan around. Miles would wake up in the morning saying, "Where's Ethan". When Ethan took us for walk, Miles kept pointing as houses saying, I want to live there with Ethan. 

Here is Ethan teaching Miles "the really important things in life." If I am remembering accurately, these include foosball and shooting dart guns. Ethan patiently taught Miles to do both.  

Ethan reading to Miles! This picture warms my heart.

 Bailey is one of the most tolerant dogs ever, and she is not even 2 yet.

Here we are looking at Cousin Connor's Eagle Scout project, which was building a children's garden at the church. We are so proud of Connor for achieving Eagle Scout. If Aunt Sandy and Miles look cold in these, it is because the temperature in Madison was only 23 degrees on Monday. BURR!

I love this picture!

Pop-pop and Patty also joined us in Madison, but I did a sub par job of taking pictures. Sorry, I always forget to take the camera out.

Happy Halloween

Miles is not feeling so well tonight. He has a fever and is getting his 2 bottom molars. He rallied to trick or treat, however. It was so fun! I wish Drew was here to see it. Miles was so polite and in only about 30 minutes managed to score more candy than he has ever seen before. Way to go Miles!
