Things That Make You Say..."What???"

WHAT?... A stroller on your back?

WHAT??... A toothbrush in the dirty clothes basket?

WHAT???... A hair bow in the office supply drawer?

WHAT????... A bag of dog food in the dryer?... REALLY????

I'll give you 3 guesses and the first 2 don't count on how all these things happened.

Never a dull moment at the Hinton House :)

Little Miss Curly Cue

Well, as you can see, Kate wasn't all to happy about me hot rolling her hair for the first time. Her hair is as straight as an arrow and we had a couple of extra minutes this particular Sunday morning so I though I would give it a try.

But as soon as Daddy told her how cute she was she turned that frown upside down.

And even struck a pose for us.

I must say, I never really like the feeling of all that pulling and clips and heat on my head either.

But don't you think it was worth it?

Well, at least for the 15 minutes it stayed this way. I promise it was almost completely straight again by the time we got in the truck and drove to church. At least I got a picture :)

Sweet Valentines

Made from the heart.

For special friends.

The Shirt Says It all

For Valentine's Day Erica and I found these shirts for Kate and Ella. They were just too cute to pass up.

And for all you smarty pants out there, no, Erica and I didn't get these same shirts for ourselves. It might have only been because they didn't make them in our sizes, but still, we didn't :)

Winter Wonderland

It's been many years since the south side of Atlanta has seen snow like this. J and I think it's the most snow we've seen since the blizzard of 1993. Whatever the case, it most definitely is the most snow Kate has ever seen and she absolutely L.O.V.E.D. it! We made her wait until it had been snowing a couple of hours before taking her out and we were all amazed at how fast it covered everything and how thick and fluffy it was.

Kate immediately wanted to make a snowman. Her class at school has been discussing snowmen for quite some time now and she couldn't wait to put her knowledge to the test. She told Daddy exactly how she wanted everything.

And pitched in when she could.

And if I do say so myself, I think it turned out quite cute. Kate-size and everything.

So after a hour and a half of playing hard out in the snow which included a few snowball fights and a couple of games of you-can't-catch-me after building the snowman we all headed inside to peel off the layers of snow covered clothes.

And warm ourselves by eating some grilled cheese sandwiches and hot soup.

Of course the fun doesn't stop there. The snow lasted through the night and gave us a second day to enjoy.

So, I taught Kate how to make snow angels.

And what a perfect angel she is :)

And she discovered that snow is a lot like the really good ice that you get at Zaxby's. (Eating ice is one of the only things that Kate takes after me, and of course it has to be something that could ruin your teeth and drives her Daddy crazy!)

It has been a wonderful couple of days, days that I will cherish forever!

Now that all of that is said, and we finally got a good snow, could Spring hurry up and come? I'm ready for flip flops :)

Bathing Beauty

A bath is just more fun with bubbles!

And you know you're nice and clean when this happens:

I wish I had this much fun taking a bath :)
