Flipper the Convert

You may be wondering about the title of this blog......... well, Sam has taken to a new form of communication. It has only been in the past two weeks, but happy or sad, Sam has decided to start letting out ear-deafening shrieks.

In fact, when we were in the mall the other day, a lady beside us commented that she thought he was trying to communicate with the dolphins. I thought that was the best description I have heard thus far. My mom seemed to think the fire alarm was going off the first time she heard it. Nice.

We also had an exciting weekend as both sets of grandparents came in to be a part of Sam's baptism (hence the second half of the title). It was such a fun time and a beautiful service. Sam even got to wear the family heirloom baptismal gown that his Nanny Sunshine made 60 years ago!

What What...

This is the second season since 2007 in which Carolina has swept Duke in both games.........way to go, Heels.

We found a way to beat daylight savings time! Get your kid hyped up about a Carolina game in order to keep him from napping so that he crashes in the car on the way home. He was so out that I picked him up, placed him on the changing table, changed his diaper, put on his pajamas, and laid him in bed for the night. Nice.

Here is our time to give a shout out to our Heels that have clinched #1 in the ACC and by tomorrow will probably be #1 in the nation. Hopefully on the way to the NCAA Champions as well...... but we won't get ahead of ourselves. We went to our friends - the Dudley's - to join some other Tarheels in WNC to cheer on our boys. Steven Edward and Sam were decked out for the affair. His dinner left a bit to be desired, but boy did he have a good time. And luckily his friend Ben had a train table, so he was entertained the entire game!

Notice that although we had 8 inches of snow last week, we are now in shorts.

A Reminder of the City

Well, we finally got a good snow here in Asheville. It has been coming for 6 years! It feels very similar to a snow we got in New York last year (you have to scan down to the second post) about the same time. But last year Steven Edward was so young he couldn't do too much so I ended up playing with my friend's kids in the snow. I sledded and built snowmen with the Dube's (who now live where snow is abundant and I'm sure are quite tired of it) who very much enjoyed my snow excitement. This year it was fun to do the same with my own son. He did not want to touch it, but he enjoyed walking in it and sledding with his daddy.

The snow started yesterday at around noon, and we were even able to get out in it and build a snowman last night!

Here is the snowman as of this morning. Poor guy....

Here are some pictures of our outing...Steven Edward only lasted about 15-20 minutes in the 20 degree windy weather. He was quite happy to get back inside to a fire and his toys! I decided the best age for snow must be between about 8 and 20! These little guys aren't up for the cold.
