Happy Feast Day, Blaise

Blaiser receives his annual throat blessing. Gus looks a little nervous for his turn. Rosie refused it. Ha! That blessing always comes at a good time when we are battling a cold. 
We "feasted" on a banana split at Margie's. Blaise ate 80% of this. I had to take his spoon away twice. He means business. 
Steph sent this- perfect for our little Jedi. :)
Blaise had to do a report on a saint for school. He chose his patron, Blaise. We learned some interesting facts- like Blaise is the patron of Dubrovnik, Croatia, as he protected the city from an attack by the Venetians. There's a big cathedral there in his honor and his statue is on top of the city gates. He also was a martyr, meaning he died defending the faith. What a good super hero to look up to. Please always intercede for us, beloved St Blaise.

Lately

It's been pretty quiet over here. Just nesting, resting, and getting ready for baby!
Gus has a new pair of pants with an ND on them. He tries to wear them every day, in conjunction with a Corey Crawford jersey. :)
Blaise and G-Pops are sending sketches back and forth of the tree house they plan to build when we eventually move. G-Pops' even features four bunk beds which fold down! Ha. 
Playing in the mud in the backyard. With a tutu. 
Tommy took Rosie on a date. He asked her where she wanted to go and she said "bus." So they took the bus to get donuts! It was cute to see them walking away hand in hand. 
Thankful for our mild winter weather, Legos to entertain the boys, and our quiet weekend to catch up.

Oh Baby!

The kids got ready for #4 after school. Blaise built a crib and enjoyed swaddling, Rosie diapered and fed, Gus dressed his baby and took her for one wild ride. 
The new baby will be LOVED... And tough!

Ski Day

Off we go! Gus's first time on skis.
Blaiser zips down the bunny hill. He made nice progress. 
Happy Gus :)
Dad and Blaise went out for more- Gus took a little snooze on my lap.

At School

We celebrated Gus's birthday at school this week. He was so excited to bring in donut holes and bananas, and his family. :)
First we showed a picture from each year of his life.
 Then, Gus got to hold the Earth and walk around the sun to show he had been alive for four years. So Montessori!
 Rosie did not want to leave. She felt right at home there!
Gus is enjoying his warm UD outfit, MarMar!!

Morning at the Conservatory

Digging in the dirt
Watering plants 
That's one way to do it Rose
Taking the path
