Christmas '09

Trying on his DJ Lance Rock hat and glasses. Thanks Gram and G-dawg!

Once Rowan saw his bubble mower and grocery cart we couldn't get him to open anything else. He spent the whole morning driving them around.

"tasting" some of his fake food we got to go in his grocery cart.
Rowan's new favorite thing is to take a shower instead of a bath. He can only do it when his daddy is home and can go in with him.
He got a shaving kit for Christmas, and he got to try it out tonight...he loves to copy anything he sees mommy and daddy do.

Excited to start their sledding adventure!
Rowan made the long walk down and back up the driveway to get to the really good sledding hill...I think he will sleep good tonight!

Rowan had a great time sledding! We will post some videos if we can ever dig out and get to fast internet.

snow boots

Gram wanted to see pictures of Rowan in his snow boots, so here you go. He will hate us for these one day, but boy did they make us laugh. He kept looking at me like, "do you realize you forgot to put pants on me?"

Snow day

We were surprised by the actual accumulation we got here much for the trace amount they were calling for. Rowan loves the snow! He has wanted to be out in it all day. I froze in like 10 minutes, but Josh was a good sport and stayed out with him. Here are a few from the short amount of time I lasted outside.

Deer-1, Shey's car-0

Rowan and I hit a deer tonight about 1/2 mile from our driveway. We were both fine (just shaken) and the air bags didn't even deploy, but it was still very scary. And it left the car in pretty bad shape, I couldn't even open my door more than a few inches. Good thing I drive a mom car, if we would have hit it in Josh's car I think it would have gone through the windshield.

Morning routine

Rowan insists on saying good morning to all his stuffed animals before he will get out of bed in the morning...this is only about half.

Mowing the Lawn

The Owsley's lawn mower took a break out on our patio for the last couple of days while they got caught in the rain while mowing the grass, and Rowan has become fascinated by the machine. Now that he is walking, he decided to "mow" the patio.

"Fixing" things

Trapped in the house again with crazy weather and a sniffly kid, we had to get creative to pass the time. Yesterday was Rowan's first attempt with play-do and today it was 'fixing' things. he has been obsessed with tools forever, but yesterday he saw me replace some batteries in a toy and he was mesmerized. I took out the bit from an adjustable screw driver and let him go to town fixing things all over the house. Here he is giving his push lion a tune up.

Monkey needed some fixing too...

Leaf blower

Most kids are scared of loud noises, and the things that make them, right? Not this kid. We have already established his love of vacuum cleaners, dust-busters, the dryer, but now we have broadened the scope to leaf blowers. When you first turn it on, you might think Rowan is scared, because he is shaking...then you realize he has a huge grin on his face and is shaking out of pure joy and excitement, in the "I must have that right now" kind of way. Today we walked hand in hand while he held on to the leaf blower helping me clean off the patio. He gave me a very frantic "please" when we were done to ask if he could play with it. He is ridiculous.

Doesn't he look just like a Hayden in this one?

A day at the park

It was very chilly today, but we bundled up and went to the park to get some fresh air this afternoon. We didn't last very long but had a great time while we were there.

Rowan is so affectionate with Josh. This is my favorite shot of the day.

Yes, Josh was in shorts...he wouldn't admit it, but I think he was cold.
