Skyler has been having so much fun lately playing with his cousins.  He runs around laughing and having so much fun.  It's the best physical therapy out there for him.  Since it's the dreaded cold and flu season though most of my family has been sick which means Skyler cant be around them.  We have had to be very creative lately in what we do to keep us entertained.  One of which has been bathtub fishing.  So simple, yet so much fun.  Throw a bunch of magnets into the tub and attach a magnet to the end of a fishing pole or even a stick and catch some "fishies". This kept Skyler entertained for hours.

Reeling it in...

Look at that catch!

Another fun thing Skyler has been able to do is finally play in the snow!  This was the first time in over two years that he has done that.  Last year he was in the hospital of course and the year before that he kept getting croup over and over so I didnt ever let him get in the snow.  I wasnt planning on letting him play in the snow this year either but as we were driving around the neighborhood after the first snowfall looking at all the snowmen everyone made I just couldnt keep that away from him.  I wanted to give him the joy of making his own snowman.  I bundled him up and out we went.  We tried so hard to make those awesome snowmans you see in movies but we found out that snowman making is not one of our talents.  It was quite hilarious watching us try and roll a ball of powder.  We did finally end up making a cute little one though and also had a fun snowball fight.

He was so happy to be able to throw something at me and not get in trouble.

 If you squint your eyes just right you can see our tiny little snowman. He even had goldfish eyes and pretzel arms.  That's about as creative as we get snowman wise.

That smile in the snow is enough to warm any heart. What a great decision to give him the chance to play outside and enjoy some snow. Snow angels are a hit around here when we can't make snowmen.
