Snow Day Part 2

We've had so much fun the past two days playing in the snow! DFW got a record breaking 12 inches of snowfall in a 24 hour period. The most in recorded history. AND, it was a perfect snow to play in, build a snowman in, and for snowball fights! Wet, sticky snow. Plus, the temps have been just perfect for it too. They stayed in the upper 30's/low 40's and that means you can play in the snow and not freeze to death while you're playing.
As you can see, we've had such a blast these past 2 days!

It's too quiet, where's Maddox??

It's too quiet in this house right now...wait a second, MADDOX??? Where are you!? Oh great, he's in the bathroom. Please tell me he's not dumping out the shampoo or unraveling the newest toilet paper roll!! It's never a good thing when your 3 year old is being 'too quiet'. Well, imagine my surpise when I walk in and this is what he's doing:

And this too:

No, it's not even bedtime. We haven't even been home 10 minutes and he proceeded to open his goodie bag from school and brush his teeth. The dentist came to Maddox's school today, "Dr. Laura". Apparantly, 3 year olds DO listen and learn while at school. Go figure, it's not all coloring, puzzles, and legos. "Dr. Laura" gave the kids a little timer (if you look, you can see he wanted to use that while brushing his teeth), a new toothbrush, and floss.

And, check it out, he's learning to write his name too! He's 3.5 by the way. Leyton didn't learn to write his name until he was 4. GO MADDOX! You, over acheiver, you!

Leyton donates to the children of Haiti

My son simply melted my heart tonight. All week Leyton has been asking me if he could take some change to school to fill the 1st grade 'bucket'. We gave a baggy with some spare change (maybe a few dollars worth??) yesterday. He wanted to take more this morning. So, before I sent him to school with more money I inquired with his teacher about what he was talking about and what the money was for. 1st graders have a tendancy to be sneaky and spending their 'change' at the student store on Chucky Cheese type junk.
The teacher told me each grade was competing to earn the most money. All the money raised is being sent to the children of Haiti. When I told Leyton we would round up some more of our change for him he asked if he could just empty his piggy bank (including one $1 and a $20!!!) and give that to those kids. I of course said he could do that. If I were to guess, I'd say he had close to $30 in that bag! He said that maybe if he sent his money to Haiti that their mom's and dad's could buy them some new stuff. My goodness! What a sweetie!
After talking about the earthquake some tonight with him he asked me to show him some pictures. After seeing those pictures he asked if maybe his money might help buy them shoes and stuff. I told him I KNOW if will help!
