Matt also had a big snowball fight with the girls. Thanks to my spectacular skill as a photographer, I was able to capture this battle with snowballs in mid-air. I know, that is a fantastic feat! Anyway, every time Morgan tried to throw a snowball back at Matt, he would scoot in really close so she could hit him with it, she would pull her hand back behind her to get some power behind her throw, and then she would let go of the snowball way to soon and it would land right on her head...every single time! It was great! Everyone had a lot of fun!
Then I decided that everyone had had enough snow time and we all went in and had a cup of hot chocolate with teeny tiny marshmallows. Our little eskimos were pretty reluctant to take off their mittens and coats, but eventually we got them undressed and down for a nap.

The other day, I was getting really frustrated that Morgan and Elle weren't minding me and sitting down at the table for lunch. I finally started to almost yell at them to sit down and Morgan casually walks up to the table and sits down and says, "Yes. Let's sit down at the table. It's a beautiful day today!" I was laughing so hard I couldn't possibly be even the slightest bit mad any more! I don't know where she comes up with this stuff. Then later that day, we were playing hide and seek and she asked me to go in a corner in the kitchen to count. I told her I would just count where I was at, and she said, "Please go count in the kitchen...I'll give you a cookie!" After hide and seek she happily handed over a deliciously invisible cookie! Morgan has also discovered her hips. I think it is from dance class; the teacher was always telling them to move their hips for the dance. So I took a video of Morgan's new hippy dance!
Elle is beyond hilarious lately, too. She is really into playing with Miles. She hides and keeps peeking out until Miles finally comes to find her and then she runs off to a different hiding spot. And lately, every time she does something she is not supposed to and I tell her "no" she just looks at me and starts laughing and tells me, "No, Mommy, but it's funny!!" After that I have a hard time telling her "no" again.
Miles is doing well, also. He is getting more teeth already and loves to bite me right on that tender spot where my neck and shoulders meet. He is pulling himself up on everything and is starting to cruise along the couch (walking while holding on, for those of you who don't know what cruising is). He laughs at everything and loves to play with his big sisters...and take away whatever toy they may be playing with at the time!
