We traveled to Cleveland, Ohio January 18th through the 21st. James and Jesse played in the pool at Comfort Inn every day. I got to spend one evening with them at the pool and captured many pictures of them playing. James jumping off the side of the pool would have given me heart palpitations just last October. He has come so far with his swimming lessons. He's a fish in the water. Jesse needs a new bathing suit cause well her girly parts play peek-a-boo sometimes and it gives me the heebie jeebies. I can't even put her in a bikini or tankini in good conscience. She may be relegated to boy shorts and rash guard shirts for the next decade. :D Jon. What can I say? He needs new swim shorts too. I believe those are 9 years old.

I once had a rabbit named Snuggles, Jesse puts that rabbit to shame. Jesse loves laptime, snuggletime, mommytime. I joke that I carried her for 14 months, nine months in the womb and 5 months strapped to me in the Mai Tei. I think she looks like Cindy Lou Who in the Grinch movie in this picture.

Jon is scraping my toppings off my vegie lovers pizza! Can you hear the gasp and horror in my voice?! We went to Donato's pizza in Lebanon Friday night before heading to Walmart for groceries. Jon ordered a large half cheese and black olives (cause James and Jesse LOVE black olives) and half vegie lovers. Then he proceeded to desacrate my pizza. Next time he's gonna have to order his own personal pizza, cause I got two pieces and then had to eat just toppings while he ate mutilated pizza. We ate it all, though. :D

The thermometer reads 21 degrees and it is pouring snow. We are expected to get several inches. Puppy refuses to come inside today. I'll randomly look out and she's chasing her tail or running circles or digging in the snow. At this moment she decided to come get her bottom warm and rest after her circle running. She's laying on top of her dog kennel. She refuses to use it, so I've resorted to putting a blanket on top with a doggy indoor/outdoor heating pad. The heating pad is that brown thing she is laying on. It heats in response to pressure, so it gets warmer as she lays there and then reaches a max temp before it shuts off. It's pretty cool. I had to steal this one from the cats cause Puppy is being a butthead. They'll have to duke it out another day.

Spice-Girl and her two cohorts live in the cat room. Since it is wintertime, I put down straw for their bedding. The three rabbits will spread the straw the entire length and width of the 10'X5' room. Spice gets her ears wet everytime she drinks from the bowl and I find it adorable, those big floppy soft ears floating in the water.

Jesse had just finished putting on the bridle and was working on fastening the saddle on when I snapped this picture. Look at that face of concentration. She's serious about her horse. Joey went to bed with her last night and it was of EPIC importance this morning that I find the bridle before I went to work. I think I have a horse-mad girl on my hands. Makes momma proud.

One of the things I do at work is inspect schools and there is an "aroma" in most elementary classrooms that I have finally placed...Paints. Non-toxic children's paint has a beautiful scent that is now and forever will be associated with Jesse and her paintings. She's an artist in the making. I feel it.
The second picture was taken on 12-27-09 and in the seven days since, Jesse has filled up this wall and two walls in the living room. She's been busy. I love it.
