Snowpeople!

I finally did it! I made a snowman with Chico! In fact, I made one snowman and decided he looked lonely and needed a snowwoman.  (Actually I got rolling the middle part of the first snowman and by the time I got it next to the base it was bigger than the original base, so I decided to make two)  I happened to have these cute little hats and threw on some scarfs I had.  I couldn't figure out what to do for the eyes and we were kind of pressed for time so I grabbed some legos and threw them on. I tried to do some mouths but it was really really extremely difficult and then I ran out of time (Nelmo woke up and I had to get going to Webelos) SO they are mouthless.

I think they look like a grandma and grandpa. :)  And look, they're even holding hands!

I'm glad I got pictures of them when I did, because when I came back out to go to scouts, the man had fallen over. Bummer!

Cute Chico stuff:
My name is no longer Mommy... it is Momai with the emphasis on the dipthong (the "ai")

When we were driving around the other day whenever I would make a turn he'd go "weeeeee!"

I don't know if I've recorded this one before, but occasionally when we're driving he'll say, "Careful Daddy!" (or Mommy, depending on who is driving).  I think that's a definite sign that I'm a BAD backseat driver. It's a miracle Brent will let me drive with him anymore, if I were him I wouldn't let me drive with me.  He's just a much more patient and kind person than I am. In my defense, I've been considering going to counseling for my anxiety on the road. It's been almost 2 years since I got hit but I still think it's affecting me.

Chico's cousin's birthday is today and he's been singing happy birthday to her all morning!

Chico can sing all the words to "Baa Baa Black Sheep".  When he was younger he'd insist that a sheep and goat are the same thing.  He's very particular about things and he WILL correct you if you say something wrong.  He calls our 4Runner a Truck.  If you accidentally call it "the car" he will correct you and say, "No! The truck!".
