Sledding action








Daily Sam, 2012 snow edition

More snow! Even more than the little teasing we got on Christmas Day!

Sammers wasn't sure what to think of the great big flakes at first - he just stood in a little corner of the yard and told us "snowing, play snow, snowing, play snow," but without really doing any of the playing part.

He's always so tolerant of the paparazzi ;)

So we got the sled out and we started sledding down the driveway.

Once Sammers finally figured out the play part, he did not want to come inside!

It's the middle of December and the temperatures are still in the mid-60s - it's totally weird the week before Christmas to be playing at the park and feeding the ducks. But we're enjoying it!







And he didn't even try to climb into the water! He's learning!

A wedding in a barn

So....my baby brother got married. The ceremony and reception were out at the family farm and it was surreal and wonderful and gorgeous and perfect. The whole weekend was truly a group effort - everyone pitched in and made it a super-fantastic event. It totally could be featured on one of those wedding-stylist-diy-blogs. And of course there was a photobooth - it wouldn't be an official wedding without one ;)

So I'm just going to finish off the month of September with one giant blog post; I'm sure all of Sammers' fans won't mind, right?

The obsession with cars and trucks, really anything with wheels, continues to grow.
