The children pose for me real quick before the playoff game last night. Walker was reluctant - but he gave in. Maggie ran around the house yelling, "Here we go Steelers" and Will just chased her with the "terrible toddler towel." Papa would have been proud.

We've been busy the last week! With all the snow, playing has been a great desire, but the freezing cold temperatures (below 10 degrees most days and that's not factoring in wind chills) have kept us indoors most days. Especially because Will does not really care for the snow. I'm sure this is due to several causes: Snow clothes are bulky and hard to walk in, they don't make snow boots his size so we layer him in socks and put him in the only boots we have that are not weather proof, and, most importantly, it is really stinking cold out there!
Maggie braved the cold - she wouldn't sled ride, but she watched Walker. They also managed to get in a quad ride one late afternoon. We took a trip to the PA State Farm Show in Harrisburg January 15-18 and had a blast. I've included some photos from the trip.
As always, if you want to see more photos of what we've been up to, check out my album at www.flickr.com/photos/jenniferschwalm - or clicking on any of these photos will take you there.
To those of you that subscribe to updates, so sorry I junk up your box every time I add photos here. If it helps, I've linked the blog to facebook, so you can find updates there too.
Love and warmth to you all!
The griddle isn't hot - it is many many minutes after breakfast has been served, the griddle is cool and Will decided he was done playing with toys and was going to cook himself some lunch. This kid is too smart!
We turned Walker into a cowboy this weekend buying him new cowboy boots, a hat and a new belt for his birthday coming up in a few weeks. he was so absolutely thrilled to get all of this stuff. However, that thrill didn't translate into a pretty photo. Not sure what this pose is, but it was the best of the bunch!
He really does look like a cowboy - especially because he's so skinny he doesn't fit into his clothes!
I went to the hotel lobby to look up restaurants on the complimentary computers. While I was gone, Maggie got into my purse and managed to take these incriminating photos of my youngest and the man who was supposed to be supervising them. Who do you think has the upper hand?
Walker has always favored red tractors, then when the song "International Harvester" came out he became a IH man.
Sorry about the cheezy smile. I swear I tried to get him to smile normally. Apparently, at the age of 4, a child loses the ability to smile normally for pictures.
