preeetty awesome

I just love driving around after a big snow storm and seeing all the snowmen that have popped up in front yards. 

Earlier this week, I passed by this guy on my way home from work. 
I'm honestly not even sure what else to say in response to this besides, "Awwweeesome!!!" 
I mean just check out the pelvic bones!
This guy is probably the snowman king. The evil snowman king. 

And last night, our stroller came in the mail. 
Look how beautiful it is.
We tore into the box, quickly assembled it, and exchanged a few little shrieks of joy and excitement. 

Then Chas grabbed the handle bars and proceeded to take little cryings (the empty stroller) for a little ride around the house. Laughing, and trying to grab the handle bars so I could have a turn, I followed closely behind him. Together, we strolled around the living room, kitchen, hallway, and ended up in the baby's room. 

That's where I just had to forcefully take the stroller and demand a turn pushing it. 
Chas wasn't sharing. 

This morning, I asked Chas if he thought the baby will love riding in the stroller as much as we love pushing it around. 

"Ummm...Probably not" was his response. 
And he's probably right.

I remember when our stroller came. We felt the same way! We tore into it, put it together and then just counted our blessings. I am genuinely so thrilled for you 2! Yay for little cryings!

Aren't his legs a wee bit short?? He's still kinda cute though. :)
p.s. That stroller is all sorts of awesome! Can't wait for our day to come...

That skeleton is pretty impressive. I would have no idea how to even start that.

Maria said...

Haha this is great! I love the picture of the snowman/evil snow thing! And the stroller is precious, I love the color combination so much. I'm not sure if the little cryings will like riding in the stroller as much as y'all like pushing it but you can always find out!

Erin said...

Wow. Diligent and talented they must have been to create that! I hope you enjoy your new stroller! :)

Pam said...

Yay for a new stroller! Looks like a good one. I'm 5 weeks away from my due date and we still haven't decided on one yet. There are just so many options....

Stephanie Shepherd said...

That might just be the most impressive snowman I've seen. How does one even make snow form like that?!

Emma Frances said...

What a cute stroller! :] And I'm sure little cryings will like riding around in the stroller! That's the only thing that would get my colicky sister to sleep!

That snowman reminds me of sand sculpters. Some people take their snowman building very seriously.

Eeek! Is it in those same colors too, because I love it. So exciting.

Kate said...

That snowman is way awesome, but I'm thinking that stroller is even more awesome! What a fun delivery!

Rachael said...

You guys are the cutest! That is a nice stroller though!
And love that snowman! That is awesome, I've never seen one that wasn't an actual snowman before!

Kylie said...

Every time I read your blog I love it more and more! Love hearing about your preparation for little cryings!

Hahahah...wow!

I love that the stroller name is "bumble ride." I have the image of an adorable bumble bee in my head and I can't stop smiling.

Songbook said...

hehe you guys crack me up. Oh, and I push Brielle around the house in her stroller, her doll's stroller, and cardboard boxes. If your baby is anything like mine-she will love being strolled around

Caitlin said...

Hahahaha that snow skeleton is terrifying! But what a neat-o stroller! Not that I know anything about strollers.

Mindee and Austin said...
