Ooooh! A big box!

We saw the new baby giraffe:
All, in all, the boys had fun and got to run around outside, so it was a successful trip!

Despite Scott being in bed all day with a stomach bug (and me getting it later that night after the kids went to bed), I got the scavenger hunt together for the kids.
Ryan let Jillian find a few clues:
And encouraged her on the next ones:
Until they found their gifts (in the guest shower!):
Jillian received a fleece blanket I made:
Ryan was surprised to get a pack of silly bands:

Can you believe I'm almost a year old? Where did the time go? I am becoming little Miss Independent around here! Feeding myself,
Mommy, of course took my picture! Have you met my new friend, Elmo? When I am not trying to eat him, I like to hug him!
I am too funny!! Mommy and Ryan crack me up when they try to get me to sit still and not come after that fun camera!
So, what am I up to this month? I weigh 17 lbs, 11 ozs. I get really excited when Daddy gets home from work!
And, I am way into cabinets.
Way INto them! Get it?
Mommy thinks I like emptying them out, but she doesn't seem to understand that I just empty them out so I can get into them!
Here's my best buddy!
See you next month!

I was trying to get a video of Jillian cruising. She likes to go all along these cabinets in our kitchen (trying to open them as she goes...only the one with all the rubbermaid opens). Instead, she kept coming after me, but you can see some of her tricks. She can bend/squat down and come back up, she can stand solo, and she can take a few tiny shuffled steps!
It was thick, wet snow this time:
Our unofficial measurement:
It was so beautiful and peaceful first thing in the morning!
The wet stuff was not as good for sledding (especially since the temperature rose throughout the day), but it was better for snowman building!
Ryan pulled her around on our makeshift sled (this was right before he turned the corner and she fell off face first into the snow!):
She cried, but got back on for awhile until she got too cold:

Here they come...
They had 5 or 6 stations to go to, including a bean bag toss:
