Mr. Helpful

As many of your know, my hubby is a clean freak when it comes to the kitchen (and I love that about him). And I think I am happy to report, Wy-man is having some of the same tendencies.

After dinner he decided he wanted to do the dishes, which then led to scrubbing the sink...

I thought it was so cute I quickly pulled out my cell phone and started taping him. (Please excuse my giggles as he decides to scrub the sink.)

He then ended the fun adventure with infamous 'soap beard'. lil' man is growin' up!

Valentine's Day Fun

Wow, life has been quite hectic in the Davidson household and I have neglected to make any posts lately. I promised myself that I wouldn't post until I had all holiday decorations taken down. (I's the end of Feb. and I am embarrassed to say that I am just getting my Christmas tree down.) ;-(

But now that it is down and nicely put away (as of yesterday), I can spend a little time updating - from our Mexico trip, to Wyatt's Words of the Week and many other happenings in our lives. So let's get started....

I love the opportunity to throw a party, design invitations and go all out on decorations, so Wy-man's V-day party at daycare was no different. This was the first year he truly understands about giving gifts and I couldn't wait for him to pass them out to his classmates.
I found plastic candy hearts and filled them with candy (I debated on going the healthy route with fruit snacks or raisins...but then decided "What the heck, let's give them a little candy.") He has 16 kids in his class so each of his friends got a different saying and a personalized Valentine complete with Wy-man's photo.
I was absolutely in love with his Valentines and he was the hit of the party...actually the talk of the daycare. No sooner did I walk in to pick him up that night, the girls at the front desk were sharing with me how much they liked his Valentine cards. So I was one proud mama! I mean...who could resist this smile?!
Happy Valentine's Day - 2011!

Outside Fun

The weather was absolutely gorgeous this weekend so Wy-man and I took full advantage of getting outside for an hour or so. (Plus, Dad-d had the flu, so I couldn't wait to escape from the house.)

The snow is probably up to Wy-man's waste, so it's a good thing he isn't too heavy and can walk without sinking too much, but it still gave him a good workout. He couldn't wait to help shovel thinking he was going to get rid of all the snow in our yard.
When he got bored with shoveling, he busted out his beloved bubble mower. Although he was saddened that the bubbles were used up during the summer, he still had a blast moving any snow/ice/water mixture he could find.
He even found time to visit the neighbor. (Boy is he social...I wonder where he gets that?!) Then we worked on a snowman...Okay, I should be realistic. Mama built the snowman while Wy-man did whatever he felt like.
But our finished product was quite the masterpiece! (We had to snap photos fast because our snowman was melting quite fast in the blistering 40 degree heat we were experiencing.) ;-)
Wy-man even put his arm around him to pose for a photo opp. (This never happens.)
And they even shared a hug!
Then we were off to sled, except we only have an inflatable Mama was inventive and hooked the dog's leash to the handle. And we were off! Running through the neighbor's yard, giggling and having a blast (until Mama needed her asthma inhaler). ;-)
(And he's only wearing his helment because he wanted to ride his scooter prior to no, I wasn't worried about head injuries during the sled ride.)
What a wonderful afternoon we had spending quality time in the snow and taking in the wonderful fresh air!
