madcap recap

Annnnd it's catch-up time again here on the Hewitt blog. Rather than try to sum up our lives in the past month and a half, I'll rely on pictures...

When we were down in Beevile just before Christmas, Grandad built the twins a swing. Lily loves swinging so much that she can barely stand it when they come up in conversation.

Noah opted for a stroll--er, crawl--along the boards Grandad stacked for him to play on.

Gemma, Noah, and cousin Elijah

Some of the Christmas takings...

Elijah, practicing his Texish:

Standing around while Christmas tree shopping, and the salesperson just happened to snap a picture...

Enjoying more Christmas spoils...

Noah's really good at defying gravity. Or I just don't know how to rotate a picture.

Back at home, dressed in Christmas trappings:

Christmas morning festivities almost didn't make it past the stockings, once the youngun's realized there were suckers sticking out of the top. "SUCK! SUCK!" demands Lily:

"TEET! NAANEE!!" exclaims Noah:

Lily demonstrates the proper way to eat pumpkin pie: Scrape off the cool-whip, and toss the rest.

Noah, on the other hand (literally), demonstrates his pumpkin-pie-on-a-stick technique.

This is how you do it, right?

Winterwear, for the bone-chilling 50-degree weather:

New non-infant hooded towels, which the twins call "hats". Butterfly:

...and frog:

In early January, we headed up to Michigan for my brother Michael's wedding. Contrary to my fears, the twins did really well on the plane--no freak-outs, vomiting, or other excitement for us. Mother Nature celebrated our arrival with record-breaking lake-effect snowfall. No kidding. 38 inches over three days. Early in the frozen precipitation melee, I took the kids outside for some winter revelry. We gleefully celebrated...

...made snow angels...

...and trudged around in the snow for about 3 more minutes before giving up completely. The kiddos were fascinated by the snow until they touched it, and it was COLD.

As far as the rest of the trip (like the wedding), I am severely lacking in photographs. But it was beautiful and very happy, and we're glad we were able to go!
