Anyways....one of the groups I joined is called Moms in Fairfax County and I have been to a few events now and have just had a great time! Sometimes we will meet for coffee and all park our strollers at the Starbucks in the mall (usually in the larger, open areas), or we will meet up somewhere for lunch. Last week we had a potluck brunch at one of the moms' houses and we had so much fun! Last week we also had "Mom Movie" day. It is such a good idea and if you are a mom reading this you should check into it! Once a month one of the local movie theatres does a "Mom Movie" day (I don't think that's the official name, but it is something similar). Basically, they just play a regular movie and pay a regular matinee price but it is all moms in the theatre. So, everyone brings their babies and parks the strollers outside the theatre. It is great because there usually is a baby or two crying, but it's not a big deal because everyone in the theatre has a baby! There were a ton of moms there and it was really nice to get to see a movie in the theatre too!
Here are a few pictures of the lunch we had earlier today. There actually were about 20 moms there, but I just got a picture of a few of us. Look at all the babies!
Next week we are doing "Mommy and Me Rollerskating" where we rollerskate and bring the strollers on the rink! This sounds like so much fun and I am sure I will have some funny pictures to post.
This was SO cute!! Lincoln has never really seen a dog before and our friends have the sweetest dog, Bean. Here Lincoln is trying to figure out what this thing is! PS...his pants look like major highwaters here - they actually do fit him I swear! They were just all bunched up at his thighs :)
Dad is home!

First we put on the music that he loves and got him in a good mood. Here is a shot before we cut it. If you look closely you can see his hairs sticking up.
Lincoln looks so confused here! "Mom, what is Dad doing to me?!"

Lincoln gets so mesmerized by the camera that he never smiles when he sees it! But, I love how he starts laughing in the last few seconds of this video. Of course I am being silly trying to get him to laugh.
Ok I know you can't see Lincoln's face very well here but I was trying to "hide" the camera so he would actually respond to me!! If you listen you can hear his sweet little laugh, it is so cute! ps....we had the Verizon guys at our house all day installing Verizon Fios which explains the big hole in the ceiling!

About a week after that appointment Lincoln got his first cold. It was so sad! He just woke up one day and his eyes were full of goop and he had a stuffy nose. Of course he got over it, but I just felt so bad for him. All he wanted to do was be held and cuddled with all day.
Look at those swollen eyes! Poor baby...
Still having fun with Dad though!
So sad with his swollen and red eyes!
This was pretty funny. As I had mentioned before, we didn't have a snow shovel and all the hardware stores within 100 miles were completely sold out. In fact, I called Home Depot and this is what their greeting said, "Hello thank you for calling Home Depot. We do not have any snow shovels or ice melt. If you know your party's extension please dial it now..." SOO we had to improvise! We had these boogie board things in our storage room and I went out to try to clear our walkway and ended up using that to shovel the snow away. Sheridan thought this was hilarious and took about a million pictures.

I took this one at about 11pm last night....we had about 12 inches at this point.
Sheridan and I decided to walk around for a minute - it was hard to take pictures though becuase the snowflakes were coming down so hard!
Look at that snow!!!
