February and time flying

One would think that with January and February things would slow down.  Not so!  My son and daughter-in-law visited with Noah and Kate, and it was great to have them here.  The kids are adorable, and it's amazing how well Katherine talks already at 20 months.  And it's amazing how much the little ones know about computers, and especially the iPad.  Evan at 2 1/2 can amuse himself with games on the tablet for hours, and Kate watches videos on it, and knows how to get to the things she wants to watch.
Of course the older kids use them as a matter of course.
We had a Christmas exchange over the weekend, and everyone came over here.

Think the living room is too small?
 Katie - how big she got, and the sweetest smile on Noah

The newest pet: Odin, a rescue

Of course we went hiking yesterday after everyone left.  Back to Harriman State Park, just over the border into NY State.  A dusting of snow on the ground, and the path we took didn't have any foot prints in it yet.  Lovely!  We clambered all the way to the top of the mountain again, watching for either fox or coyote tracks, hoping to see either, no luck, though.

 On the top - it's lovely!

luckily nothing happened to him.
