the wheels on the bus

Today was Maddy's 1st birthday so I decided we needed to get out of the house and do something fun. We walked to the bus stop and got on the bus and went to the mall. We got chocolates from See's. Yummy! We played at the play ground, window shopped and played chess with a giant board. We had a really fun day!

Winter warriors

They didn't get pictures while building their snow caves. This is the entrance to the cave.

I love this picture! I looks like when you are snorkling underwater and you look up and the sun reflects on the water.

Scenic view from the front door.

Chas just woke up from his hibernation. Miguel was Chas's bunk mate.

Steve cross country skiing.

Steve shooting the rifle.

Chas orienteering.


Steve and Chas

Chas and Steve went on the Winter Warriors campout. They had so much fun! I love to hear all their stories when they get home. For safety purposes they had to destroy their caves before the left. What is more fun than wrestling while smashing snow caves........boys. They are multi tasking.


Calvin had to have a bell to ring when the Winterhawks scored :) funny Calvin.

Tabby, Abbie, Izzie and Maddy.

Tabby came all dressed up like a princess.



Tabby took the picture so its a little blurry but it is the only one I got of me and Toby.

I got a call from the principal of Calvin's school..... I thought oh no what has he done...she told me that she was calling because Calvin was chosen by his teacher Ms. Orr to get Winterhawk tickets for our whole family because Calvin has shown the most progress this year. Yay Calvin!! Chas and Steve went to a boy scout campout instead. We had a great time!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I took this picture and then said, "Whoa you guys look scary!"

They were so pleased with themselves. Silly boys!

Chas said, "I mustache you a question.... Do you want to be my Valentine?"

"I mustache you a question....Will you be my Valentine?" Steve asked.

Tabby hopes you have a berry sweet Valentine's Day.

Tabby's valentine's turned out really cute.

Izzie loves to color with crayons. She made a mountain of crayons and I helped her shape them into a heart.

Izzie said, "I love you this much!" "I love you from the bottom of my heart," says Maddy

For Valentine's day this year we did photo valentines. It was so much fun. I found the ideas on pinterest. I LOVE pinterest.
