Oh Deven. I can't wait to see what / who he will be when he grows up. First pic is him peeling paint off the wall during quiet time at dance this week and second, us at the Silvertips game Saturday. He knows how to push all my buttons but then he gives me that smile, randomly tells me he loves me and I can't help but melt.

I really think we did Clifford a solid. I mean what other kiddo is going to give Clifford the opportunity to eat street tacos and pose for a picture in Air Force One. These photos are currently being printed at Walgreen's as Nick and I complete the first of what I am sure will be many last minute school projects before the Monday deadline.

This is one hand-me-down we are sure Tova is enjoying. Nick took Tova for his first bike ride last month. He said she had a smile plastered on her face but was completely silent not even caring that snot was rolling down her chin. :). An athlete in the making.
When I was little...I couldn't have been older than 8...I was being a snot (yes I know, hard to believe) and I told my dad that football was stupid because it was just a bunch of guys throwing around a leather ball. I have NO idea where I got this from and I'm certain I was just saying it to irritate him. Well after I became a cheerleader in junior high and was on dance team in high school and college and became more familiar with the game, its rules and athletes I have since changed my mind about the whole thing. Don't get me wrong I am no die hard, I don't know every team members name, stats or when the games are on unless I remember to look them up but I have respect for the game and admire people's passion.
Speaking of passion we have two very passionate kiddos who I feel confident will not be telling Nick or me that football is stupid.
Our tv is generally not on when the kids are awake unless its Pandora, sports or mom and daddo just need a "moment". However, because it is (was) football season the tv has been tuned in for all the games. Tova is an avid football fan. Nick and her watch together and she actually watches and says "yaaayyyy" and "awwwwee" at seemingly the right times. She may be able to help me with the technicals when she learns to talk.
So. Hawk mania in the Johnston house, in pictures. I may get more off of Nick's phone later but here are the goodies from mine.

I sort of really want it to snow. Maybe so we can finally ski now that I'm not preggo or recovering from being preggo!!...or maybe to see these two crazies have a blast in it. I don't think I've posted these gems before but this was earlier in December when we had a day or two of snow up here Everett's polar vortex of sorts. Here's hoping for snow on some none engaged weekend soon.
Pic of Dev - pre hair cut *sniff*
Pic of Tova - obviously she didn't make it outside that night. Which is another reason for it to snow...she has a new purple snow suit to break in!!

|From a couple of weeks ago but representative of her adorablness|
|co-eating [tova sitting on mama's lap to eat] is generally normal but becomes imperative while our girl is sick|
|Thankfully not puking in this box|
|doing daddo's nails - it was apparently a very serious matter|
I haven't done official research but I'm pretty sure one or both of the kiddos gets sick this week every year. It was Tova's turn this year. The flu got her...and not the achy muscle stuffy head kinda flu, much to Nick and my dismay. I thought it was too rich of food Tuesday night but I had just gotten to work when school called me back to come quarantine her for 24 hours. :) Anyhow she faked us out for another 48 hours only to end up sick again on Friday. I got the house clean on Wednesday during the fake out and Nick got some serious Daddo and Tova cuddle time only to match her first month of life on Friday. So holiday weekend was free and clear of...unpleasantness. : )
