Chinese New Year

Forrest's first hongbao (red envelope) that he could actually explore! Yes all the money was still there after he finished with it. Happy New Year!

Window Watchers

The foremen have to keep a close eye on daddy and yeye when they're out shoveling. Don't want them slacking on the job!


Forrest has become officially obsessed with his little red ukelele. This makes it one of the best purchases I've made for him. The good thing is he doesn't seem to notice that it's always out of tune. The bad thing is he gets very upset when we have to stop playing. Even though he carries it everywhere and bangs it around, he carefully puts it back in its spot when it's dinner time!

Jammin' in Jammies

Strumming the old ukelele on a pajamas kind of day.

Personal Snow Pile

Forrest has found the best part of the snow is the small pile on the deck. You don't have to go far and you can move snow around as long as you want. One day when he figures out how to use his thumbs inside his mittens it might be even more fun!

Let it Snow

We wish we could make it stop but it just keeps snowing. Forrest is not too into the snow since it's hard to walk in. But he likes to play with spoons in the small snow pile we have on the deck. And he did have a good time exploring our snowy yard. For a few minutes at least before his mittens came off and his mitts got cold!

Cleanup in Aisle 1!

This is what happens when Forrest wants to feed Lotus her dinner. Luckily Lotus is not picky about the plating of the dish. Forrest valiantly tried to help clean up but eventually realized someone else was doing it much faster.

The aftermath of the blizzard. Most of the snow is about as deep as Forrest is tall. But of course the drifts and shoveled snow piles are much bigger!

Criss Cross Applesauce

Slicing apples and simmering applesauce was a good blizzard activity. Forrest was great at turning the crank!


First snow of the year and the first one Forrest was actually aware of. What a surprise to open the curtains as usual and find a world of white! And also nice to find a buddy and some suckers to pull them around on a sled.

Heirloom Quilt

Forrest's amazing Christmas present from Grandma Char was the beautiful quilt!! It matches his cousin Diego's quilt and he sleeps under it every night. He really loves it and so do the rest of us!

Daily Exercise

Nothing like a workout to start your day!

Nobody Puts Forrest in the Corner

Except himself that is. He didn't do anything wrong, he just likes to hang out in the nook while he still fits.

Beanbag Toss


Thanks to some cute dog fabric I was gifted, I made Forrest these little beanbags. And thanks to Great Grandma 'Gusta who gave us her mother's bronze bowl, Forrest had everything he needed for target practice.

Big Shoes to Fill


I guess if I got to shuffle around in Shaq's shoes maybe I would remember what's so fun about giant footwear. Definitely seems to be universal among toddlers.
