As Emrie approaches the blessed 18 month mark next month, she is getting to be more and more curious, mobile, and can climb on to just about anything. This past week, she got into dad's ties and found some stickers. The playing with Dad's ties is becoming a very common event so it looks like we need to find a new home for the neckwear.

Grandpa Davis had a litter of three new labrador puppies recently, one of each color (black, chocolate, and yellow). Isaac was a bit nervous to pick them up, but that is his hand petting the three. Emrie took right to them, in fact she wanted to hug the little yellow one a bit too tight. Jenna was a good big sister and made sure the kids and puppies were all okay.

One of our new rituals every night is a competition for prime teeth brushing space. Isaac is first, because he actually has a full mouth of teeth to brush. Emrie, however, wants to get into the action so we have to make room for her.
Isaac found some of mom's big house slippers and was wearing them around the house. Notice the big boy underwear. He is now officially potty trained, and before he turned 3 and 1/2.
Christopher had his second winter camp out with the scouts. Dad went along for fun. I got to around 0 degrees and we woke up to everything being frozen, including the eggs. Later in the day we went ice fishing and the sun was bright and we were actually pretty warm. It was sunny enough that we all got a pretty good sunburn on our faces. We did not have much luck catching anything, hence no pictures with our prize catches. Some in the group had better luck, so we all ate barbecue fish that we cooked right on the frozen lake. Christopher also enjoyed scaling the rock cliff near where we were fishing.
