This Sunday we headed out to Clagett Farms to see some baby calves!
Within 30 seconds of entering the barn, Gus was at the top of the haybales piled up to the roof:)
He would make a wonderful farmhand!

Kip was a little more cautious, especially after a wayward chicken flew into her face from its hiding place.
"Ah, yes, excuse me, but I have something to tell you..."

Petting a baby calf just born that morning

A truly enjoyable way to spend a chilly, winter afternoon.

Something about January must make me think, "Let's fingerpaint!"  It was a great indoor activity this year, after a morning of snow games.




We got a little snow today!  Not quite enough for a snowman, so we settled for a "snowface."

Also had some fun sleding a couple tiny hills in the backyard.
Winter weather is here!  Looking forward to some more snow possibly tomorrow evening:)

Day with Dad

A spontaneous date with dad.

Passing the Torch

A (couldn't find it in storage, better late than never) Christmas gift for Gus: my old Star Wars Micro Machines. He LOVES them. If they had been a timely Christmas present, I believe they would have rivaled the Mars rover (aka top present of 2012) Gus received from Amy's parents. Maybe.

All things space these days. This evening, of his own accord, he was building spaceships. One of each version was in color and one unfinished. Who would have thought.
