Bennett has been walking for a couple weeks now but I finally got some pictures.  He is always so proud of himself when he is doing it, so cute!

Joseph and Legos

Here is Joseph's latest creation to enter in the Lego Magazine contest.  They have a building contest every month and he takes these VERY seriously :-) I have been instructed to print this picture out immediately and send in his application form.  I  hope he wins one someday!
His first attempt.  He initially made a garbage truck, but then changed his mind and went with the rescue helicopter and boat. :-)

Spring Snow

We thought we weren't going to have any real snow this year, but woke up to this.  Previously, all we had was a dusting that the kids tried to to play in, but ended up making more mudballs than snowballs.  They were thrilled this morning.  I am a little annoyed because the tulips and daffodils were almost ready to bloom and now they probably won't.  It's crazy that in my last post the kids were sitting outside in shorts playing battleship and now this!

Pinewood Derby '12

The Pinewood Derby was on Monday night.  The boys weren't that excited about it this year and didn't spend much time on the cars.  Despite that, Joseph won 1st place for fastest car and Henry won 2nd place for design.
