A New Dog?

Well, for some reason I started looking at dogs the other day on the internet and I found one that I just think will be perfect for us, Jazmine. I showed her to Noah on the computer and he started smiling and kicking his little legs. I thought maybe he was doing that because it was a dog, so I showed him a different dog and he sat with a blank stare. I put it back to Jazmine and he laughed. It was so cute! We hope to meet her on the 19th before flying out to Florida. We will be down for 10 days again. Please leave me a comment or call me so we can plan to get together while we are in FL!

Dancing in the Kitchen

Noah recieved this little "fridge farm" by Leap Frog for Christmas. He actually got it from both Barb Peters and family, and Gramma and Grampa Jensen. We have been having so much fun dancing to Tad and his banjo, and I do mean all of us. I am going to have someone come over with a digital that takes video so that we can post this. We all laughed and laughed last night. I definately needed that type of medicine!

We have also been enjoying continued success with potty training, including his first #2 on the potty today!!!

Back in Iowa

Well once we got back to Iowa, we had some very cold weather including -20 degrees! Matt wondered during this stretch if "you can call it a high if it doesn't make it above 0?" During this stretch, we went to Rochester to see James play in a B-Ball double header. We also got to celebrate Dan's birthday while we were there. I have had a few more shows since we arrived in Iowa, including a show from the lab in Gainesville that I used to work at. We have also been able to get together with our friends in Waverly which has been fun too.

Matt and I continue loving to try out new recipes and cook probably one or two new things a week. My business is helping fan the flame because with most of the products, you recieve a new recipe to try out with the product. Just last week we ate stuffed pizza with the Jensen grandparents.

A few days ago, the high actually reached 40 degrees and the snow was warm enought to build a snowman. Noah enjoyed being able to play outside for the first time in months!

He loved standing on the very top of a well packed snow pile, as if to claim, "I am king of the mountain!" He also donned kisses on our snowman!

This weekend we have had our cousin Nick staying with us and he has been educating me on how to play Yu-Gi-Oh. It has been fun having a second "son" around and Noah loves it too!

So, now I think you are all caught up to speed on our lives. Katie, this is for you girl! I would love to hear more about your little one as soon as you get a spare moment!
