Alex Age 29 Months

This guy can talk.  He is unsure of new people like the new gymnastics coach but will warm up after 5 or 6 classes.  He can climb.  We did a trip to Vancouver last weekend and he got out of his pack and play.  Then this week he decided he could get out of his crib.  So now he is in a big boy room.

This week I dusted off my bike and rode around with the kids.   Alex was sitting in the center of the street.  Lip out as far as it could go and says to me when I ask what is wrong.   "Mommy has pedals, Daddy has pedals, Nathan has pedals."  Poor kid is always trying to keep up with the big kids and he does a great job.  Now if I could only find him a 10" pedal bike.

Photo before bed.  Kona Kitty

I tried to take a pic of the full moon, Paul did a better job with the tri-pod.

Trip to Ikea.  Alex will be getting a big boy bed soon.  He loved the purple.

They thought to do it off the counter.

What happens when I try to work out but not nearly as bad as the lip stain pen problem on Monday.

Who wouldn't want a giant moose from Costco?  Alex didn't he told me to put it back.

We snowshoed in the morning.  Had a good time when we first got to Jump Planet for Noor's 5th birthday party.
This week is mostly iphone pictures.  I was lucky to even take one a day.  We had a trip to Ikea this week and Alex and I did a Costco run too.

Week 5 Day 22-29

Fun week at the Cooley house.  The quality of the pictures is going down.  I keep forgetting my camera so iphone pictures it is.  At least I took one everyday this week.  We were blessed with nice sunny days this week.  Nice break from the snow and rain.
Glow bracelets in the tub after we had them outside of course.

Trying to get a picture of Nathan... must use feet to keep him still.

Who doesn't like free decorate your cupcake day?

This was only the start of the sprinkles.

This is one of his favorite things to do at Toddler Group.

Neighbors had a disaster and rented a steam cleaner.  We got to use it too.

Sunny Friday day includes a bike and a car wash after preschool.

Well it might be February but it was perfect for a beach day!

Week 4 Day 22-29

 Ok this week I was not very good at taking pictures.  I have 2 pictures from the 27 due to the fact I took zero on the 26th.  All and all it was not a very exciting week at the Cooley house.  Back to the normal school week since the snow had melted.  We did swimming with the Cole kids on Tuesday and it is hard to take a picture of that and then on Thursday we just did a little shopping me and the kids.  I did cook some great meals with our 1/4 of grass fed beef.  I used the tenderloin steaks.  Then on Saturday we had some fun with the Jacksons at Gold Creek.  "No-shoeing, No-Balls and No-men"  According to Alex. 

Joke on the Jacksons.  They had to park outside for the night.  Sorry Heidi I heard you shoveling.  I thought Ken would do it.

Last minute dinner plans with friends at Zeek's.  Great place for kids!

Broccoli Beef stir fry served on shredded cabbage.  Made rice for the kids and hubby.


Maylee... the boys wouldn't even look at me for pictures.

Date night was a tour of happy hour in Kirkland.  First stop Trellis.  Pear Necessity martini and a whiskey.

Snow day with the Jacksons.  Gold Creek for some snow shoeing.

Week 3 Day 15-21

This week we had no school due to all the snow.  So we spent a good week of it at home.  We enjoyed having Paul working from home and had so much fun sledding on the drive way.  On Sunday we skipped church and played outside from 8am until 11am.  What  a great family week.  Happy the snow is melting and that we can go back to our regular schedule next week.  We hear that more arctic air is on the way here but will be enjoying the rain this week. 
Snowshoe in the drive way.

Forgot to take a picture so I snapped this at bed time.

Alex wanted his snow ball back that I tossed before we went in.
