Not only did we have a couple of friends over today but we had a puppy over for playtime too. Chloe, the Golden Retriever, came to visit and play outside with the kids. We all had a great time with her. However, Noah now claims that he wants a puppy after Buddy goes to heaven. I'm hoping he'll settle for another fish!

Noah was trying to scare us all by jumping out of the teepee and growling or yelling. Oliver was having a great time pretending to be scared and playing along.
Daddy has been tryng to teach Oliver to wink and I caught him this morning doing a pretty good job of it.

Found Oliver in a climbing mode again, this time it was in big brothers room. I think he was trying to figure out how to fly the airplane.
Oliver was running around in his little cowboy boots so Noah went and grabbed Joel's. He then put on a show for us and did a little tap two-step. I also got video of it for blackmail purposes during the teenage years. Needless to say, I was laughing hard. I was desperately trying not to, however, because I didn't want him to stop.
We've had a good week. Even though Noah would be the first to tell you that I screwed up and forced him to skip school on Wednesday. It was originally scheduled as a no school day but was re-instated to make up for the snow days that we had. I never ammended my calendar so what's on the calendar is what happens. You should have seen the look that Noah gave me when the bus pulled up to drop him off and he realized what had happened.
Oliver is turning out to be quite the tricky little guy. Noah had a soda from lunch with some friends. When we got home he put his rootbeer on the dining room table and then turned his attention to some new game he found. I was busy cleaning my bedroom and just peaking in on the boys as needed. Oliver, without Noah or I seeing it, climbed up grabbed Noah's soda and ran into my bedroom. There is a corner that he likes to go play in and he ran straight to it. I was in a different part of the room so I didn't notice that he was carrying the rootbeer. He sat quietly in the corner - yes, I know that this should have been my first clue that something was up - and proceeded to drink the soda. Not so tricky yet but here's where it gets good...had I not seen him running back out of the room with the cup I would have never known what he had done. I followed him as he ran back out to the kitchen, climbed back up and placed the now empty cup right back where he had found it. Noah never knew and to be honest, I never told him. Noah just thought that he had drank it all.
Gotta run, I'm off to work! Love and blessings to you all! Love, Tiff

Anyway, I've got a couple of pictures from February to share with you so let's test this blog stuff out. Here we go:
Noah and Oliver playing in the bathtub. Noah doesn't join Oliver much anymore so when he does Ollie takes advantage of it and plays until the prune finger police show up.
Oliver has decided that he is going to climb and climb and climb! He climbed into our little shelf area next to the fireplace (see picture), the middle cubby of my big rolling cublicle thing and today he climbed Noah's ladder and onto the top bunk. The bunk incident really made us realize how serious he is about this climbing stuff. Noah doesn't have a regular ladder. Joel built him one that is attached to the bed and has rungs that are spaced very wide apart. It's difficult for me to climb, let alone an almost 16 month old. We are in trouble.
Well folks, it wasn't too bad for me. Like I said, let me know what you think about this blog. Love to you all! Love, Tiff
And so without further ado, I give you "the Johnson Family Blog - Vancouver"; I dare you to try it.
