More Snow Pictures...

Are you sick of these yet? I am getting pretty close. If my kids didn't like to play in the snow so much, I would be really over winter already. We had another 25 cm of snow yesterday and some high winds again. It is rather interesting to see how the drifts form because the wind seems to be from a different direction each time.
I liked the look of this drift behind the BBQ.
 The tractor and snowblower have certainly been getting a workout this last while.

Reina was surprised by the height of this drift. All of our cars in the building by this drift.
 Wilbert's parents are currently in Uganda visiting Jander and Tiffany. We have been checking on their house every day and I thought I better include some picture of what their house looks like.

 The road is pretty one lane right now, as there was still a lot of blowing and drifting today. We are pretty impressed with our plow drivers though. I still have no reason to go to town. Though I may need to head in tomorrow to pick up some parts that Wilbert needs.

We also have a small flock of mallard ducks that have been hanging around our farm. They found the corn silage and decided that it was a great source of food. While Wilbert now covers up the end of the bag better, they still hang out too sneak a bite while he is loading up the silage to feed. But they were struggling to find shelter yesterday in the storm. Here they are hiding out near a tree.
Well today as nice and tomorrow is supposed to be nice too. Saturday we have a little system coming they say. It could bring snow and rain, so that will be rather interesting. Tomorrows big job is get the snow out of the valley on the barn roof. Time to move it before the snow gets heavier.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
