Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

February Days….

....are coming to an end and they have gone by quickly.  It has been common to find our baby...
....sleeping in his Moby Wrap.  Snuggling during these winter days have been treasured!

Last night we had a small snowstorm.  Ky even was let out of school an hour early!
Today, Buttercup, Nacho and Moe set off to sled on a distant hill....
....and after the fresh air, sledding, and longs walks to and from the hill, they came back tired and ready to come in and work on school!

Snug As A Bug

We have to be careful where we sit in this house....

...as a chair or couch could serve as....

...a warm, snuggly nest for a sleeping baby!!!!

"B" Week

It just so happened that this week was "B" week for Nacho in school.  He has been working hard on writing the letter  B......

.....and learning about the sound B makes.

And one member of the family was able to fully participate in the letter B fun.  He is the little Baby Boy Brother wearing Blue with a Bulldog on his outfit...wrapped up in his Brown Blanket.

He also scored a few extra bonus points.....

.....A Bulldog on his Bottom!!!!

Oh, Boy!

Our Sweetie!
Born: 2/4/13
1:13 pm
8lbs 7oz
22 in.
We had a wonderful hospital stay...

...but we were so glad to be home so that older siblings could meet their youngest brother.  Hospital restrictions did not allow anyone 18 years or younger to visit due to the flu season, so last night was the first time our whole family was together and eating supper around the table as a family of 9!
We have MANY volunteers to rock...
...and love this bundle of joy!
