Who needs a TV when you have big windows in Kansas?

5. He's amazingly self-disciplined and hard working...
14. He is true-blue loyal to his friends.
15. When I think about what I'd like my boys to be like in the future, I just think of their father--if my boys grow to be like him, I'll be one happy mother.

After shoveling down their oatmeal, the kiddos bundled up and ran outside to play in the quickly melting powder. Snowball fights, flavorless snowcones, trike tracks... it doesn't get much better than this!

Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.

And instead of sorting "darks" and "lights," your categories are "pinks," "brighter pinks," "light greens," "navy," "denim," "light blue," and "lighter blue". And they're all full loads. This should serve as an encouragement to any readers who have ever been behind in housework. Okay, all of us.
In my defense, the three kids and I have all been taking turns being sick. But with guests coming for the holidays (Yeay!! Hooray!! Only two more days!!), it's definitely time to tackle the piles...
Well, a dozen loads and a tired back later, my laundry room now looks like this:
All you who are still climbing out from under your piles, try not to be jealous.

For his special day, we went to the local zoo, had some friends over for the traditional chocolate-chocolate-chocolate cake with THREE airplanes, and just enjoyed our big guy!
1) If you don't dress for the cold in Kansas, you WILL regret it.
4) Pumpkins are actually a fruit. To the children's dismay, so are many of their VeggieTale friends. Yes, 'tis true: Larry, Bob, and the gourd friends are not real veggies at all! Childhood trust destroyed...

And here's Miss B, all dressed up in her new favorite outfit with matching baby (currently named Alia). She wears this at some point every day, along with about 7 other outfits. Once I taught her to fold her own clothes and put them away, I stopped caring how many clothes she goes through each day!

More testosterone in the Hintz home! Nathan has an ally! An enemy combatant for sword-fighting! An equalizing of genders! The bedroom arrangement will work! And yes, I promise this will be the last time I post photos of my son's whoo-hoo in the public domain.
And for those of us interested in other things, he's a thumb-sucker, all systems are go, and he's giving mama's ribs a thrashing as he hones his kickboxing skills.

In the tractor with Mr. David after a ride around the property (Miss B: "this is a like a gift--it's just like Christmas!)
And my little bundle of delight herself.
