Nila was out there for three hours painting and loved every minute of it. She started out with the little paintbrush, but soon had coned Grandma into giving her the roller. They finished up the rest this afternoon and we will hopefully be getting sand tonight.

You want a sandbox? And you want it red?








Jason, Grandma Linda and Nila made a sandbox last Friday. Jason commented how wonderful it would look in red....so Nila and Grandma got to work!

Jonas




MaryLou brought her scissors and I tried to cut Jonas' hair while she gave me instructions. The bangs ended up a bit short, but after MaryLou fixed all my mistakes and finished the haircut Jonas looks pretty dapper.

After this huge walk Nila actually VOLUNTEERED to go to bed she was so tired.

Jonas welcome to Lake Michigan






Grandma Linda is here visiting and we are having a wonderful time. We all went up to Grand Haven to spend the weekend with Jason's Aunts and family at Stuart and Eleanor's cottage. A great weekend of relaxing, food, and games. We introduced Jonas to the big lake on Saturday. It was really grey, but Jonas loved the sand.

portriats


Nila's drawing is getting awesome! Check out this portrait of me that she drew on Sunday...and no those are not two extra eyes on the bottom, but my breasts, "so you can nurse Jonas" and that is a tissue on my arm "for your face".

Huzzys Lake


Sarah's Brother and his wife recently purchased a great lake house. We were invited over for lunch today.

Nila with her Banana Crumble.

Sarah and I have forgotten about Michigan Winters. We really got beat down with the move, snow, cold, and gray. The weather was nice enough to go for a walk through the nearby vineyards.

Aunt Lis joined us for lunch and the walk. Nila even got to ride up top for awhile.

My Grandma Dorthy turns 88 today. We tried to get a nice family photo to post but things fell to pieces.
Happy 88th Grandma, see you next weekend!

Saturday Nila wanted to eat dinner outside. Jonas always like to do what his big sister is doing but I was not sure how he could eat with her. I grabbed a chair and sat him at it and he ate his entire meal with her. They both had a blast.
