Aaron was out of town for a few days and this caused great concern for True....he really wanted his dad to see all of his build projects.  he asked me to take a picture of himself with his creation and send it on to Aaron, so Dad wouldn't be sad without any of us, or without seeing True's creations.  it was really sweet of True to be so thoughtful.

aprons by grandma

the boys have new aprons from grandma erbeck...each with a cat-n-the-hat theme.  they love them and like to wear them while working on art projects, as well as when they help me make cookies (sugar and wheat free, of course).  in this picture, we are hunkered in for a three day unexpected vacation due to all the snow we had, and the kids are busy making playdough cookies (and yes, my sugar and wheat free ones taste better).

pearly whites

luca had his first dental appointment.  he was very brave and did everything the dentist and hygienist asked of him.  he was surprised at the end of our visit to get toys, rather than a shot (like the doctor gives him).  true was a fantastic big brother and held luca's hand through out the appointment.

birthday party madness

true and luca were guests at true's kindergarten pals 6th bday.  the party was at Seattle Gymnastics Academy.....and what a blast!  most of the parents dropped off their kids and then had two hours to themselves- but i stayed because i wanted to have fun too!  i loved watching true and luca go crazy with all the things to crawl in and under and up and down and bounce and jump and slide and swing.  we'll definitely be visiting this gym again!

goodnight sweetheart

all of the erbecks got new beds this month!  it was long overdue for the kids and for the adults.  true and luca have some fabulous and sturdy bunkbeds that i found used (perfect condition).  while mom and dad actually bought a bed from IKEA (gasp!).  the kids also have some nice down comforters, and we all have new duvets.  winter just got a whole lot cozier.

with the magnetic letters true received from heather, true shows off his spelling skills (and he made aaron one super proud dad).
