Thanks to Kevin and Brandi for inviting us to enjoy the suite at the Mavs Game! We finally felt brave enough to take Dylan to his first Mavs game!
Here is Mimi and Will enjoying the game!
“The boys” chillin’ :) These two make me smile!
Whose kid is that? This is Dylan’s version of “Let’s Go Mavs!”
Isn't he the sweetest?! I love how he looks like such a big boy sitting in the chair all by himself!
The highlight of the night was the foam finger! Mimi bought him the foam finger and him and “Windsey” played every foam finger game imaginable! Thanks Mimi for the finger and Lindsey for the entertainment!

Today at church the title of the sermon was "Life's too Short, not to love" and not... "I love chocolate, or I love the weekend." but real agape love. Agape love is the way that a parent loves their child and the way that Christ loves his church. It is was 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 is describing..."love is patient, love is kind, etc... Love that truly, without hindrance, loves without thinking. And it did a great job at painting a picture of what our love as Christians should look like. Without fear, without keeping record of wrong, without thinking about it. As a parent I certainly do not have to think or decide to love Dylan, but with my marriage, and with every other person there are certainly times I have to chose to love. I think if I can truly understand what it means to love my husband, love the world as Christ loves me, it wouldn't ever be a choice. So on this Valentine's day I'm focusing on how Christ loves me without hindrance and without thinking because if I can truly grasp that feeling, then loving everyone else...will come without thinking or trying.

This is the “official” reading at the Snider’s! Clearly 9 inches!! Insane!!!
These are just some random pics from around my parent’s house…
A couple of limbs down in the backyard…I wish I had a tree service company, they are going to make a KILLING off of this storm!!!!
Look at how many limbs the neighbors had down!
Our snowman packed on a few more inches…
We finally headed home to let Lonna in on the fun and MAN was she excited!! Fetch in the snow=LOTS of fun!!
She looks so pretty next to all the really white snow!
Snow fun in our own backyard!
I like this picture because it shows how DEEP the snow is…OVER Dylan’s knees!
We “boogie boarded” around the backyard! Dylan thought this was the coolest thing ever!
Here is our one casualty, welcome to homeownership :)
Have a great weekend and stay warm! This will definitely be a day to remember!

So, I'm not sure if it because he is getting so articulate, but this boy has really had me laughing lately!! Dylan has been in need of a new pair of "running" shoes - when getting dressed in the morning he calls his Nike's his running shoes (only the son of two runners does this) - anyway, he's needed them pretty bad for a couple of weeks. So tonight, we braved the cold and rain and headed to Academy. He had decided he wanted blue shoes. (He's been talking about getting blue shoes for days now) We get there and I go to browse the running section and Dustin and Dylan head to the shoe department. 5 minutes later, I head back to meet them, and Dylan has decided on these...
Fast-forward to bath time...he is clean, I left him for a second to go grab some clean undies and the Christmas pj's that Dylan still insists on wearing. So I come back to find Dylan...naked...with his new shoes on...the wrong feet. Yes, naked. I am laughing so hard I'm snorting.
Here is Dylan running around the house in his Christmas pj's swearing that he is faster with his new shoes on. (Lance used to make this same claim EVERY time he would get new shoes as a kid-scares the crap out of me)...Enjoy...

Dylan: "Mommy, that was a silly bird."
Me: "Oh really, why was that a silly bird?"
Dylan: we are sitting at a stop light so I tuned around - "yes he made this silly face." - as he puts his thumbs in his ears and sticks out his tongue.
Me: "Well a bird that makes that face, is definitely silly."
Where does he come up with this stuff?? A bird making a funny face...oh he is a funny man.
