Happy Valentine's Day!

 I think this picture of Lauren is so funny.  This is the face you get when you try to take her picture!
 Hannah with her new Ariel doll that she got from Grammie and Big Daddy.  We were at the hospital visiting my dad.

 Someday I will get a non-blurry, great picture of my kids together. Until then...this is the best I could get.

Snow Fun

 When it was cold and snowy outside we stayed in and had some bed jumping fun!

 The picture of Lauren cracks me up because they were having such a great time playing together.

Sweet sisters! Please excuse Lauren's red face, she was getting over a cold.

This is my kind of snow fun...indoors!

Iced In

The weather has been terrible the last two days, but we are trying to make the best of it! Yesterday, we stayed inside and played. Today we convinced our friends to come and play.  Zac and Abby live super close to us,and their mom, Sondra, was willing to drive the short distance to our house. So we got to play with our friends! We were all excited. In honor of the snow/sleet we made some snowflake tortillas. The turned our really good. Here are the kids waiting paitently for the actvity to start.
 They folded the tortillas and tore hole in them to create the snowflakes. I think they look pretty good!
 We put butter, cinnamon, and sugar on top and baked them for about 10 minutes.
 They were nice and crunchy! The kids enjoyed eating them and they tasted great!

Thanks for braving the ice and coldtospend the morning with us! We had fun.


 Hannah started a little ballet class at the YMCA last June.  We have been going every Monday since then.  She loves going and it is a nice, low stress class.  They have been practicing a little routine to "Twinkle, Twinkle".  Here are a few pictures of her dancing.

She is much more engaged at ballet, then basketball. I think it's a keeper.


We decided to try rookie basketball at the YMCA this year. Let's just say we don't see any major commitments to sport of basketball happening any time soon.  She looks super cute...

fluffing her hair on the court. Yes, the other children were running around playing the game.Oh, my! And don't worry she has a nice pink and purple ball to play with too. Bless her little heart, but I don't think basketball is her thing.
