Snow Mountain

Nick has become very fond of the snow mountain out front. He has received many small injuries from the mountain, but still continues to play as it has gotten bigger and bigger over the last few weeks! The other day he came in with his hand bleeding. He told me he went down the mountain on his bike and went head first and caught himself with his hands! Nice!


Natalie and I have this thing we do, where we make faces at each other. She'll just randomly say to me, "mom, let's do faces!" So, we do! I took some pics of her doing her side of the faces the other day.

Snow Ice Cream

We made Snow Ice Cream again today! It really is pretty yummy and kids love it. It works best with freshly fallen snow, but anything with enough sugar in it works for the kids! It is an easy recipe the kids can do and quick too. Another way to enjoy these cold winter days. Especially when I have been home with at least 6 kids for the past 3 days! Ahhhh- I need to get out this weekend. Hopefully Nate will get the memo!! (Yes, Natalie is in her jammies and it was 4:00 in the afternoon! She was having too much fun today to ever take the time to get dressed.)

Happy 2009!

Happy New Years! It is hard to believe another year has gone by! And guess what?, I am still not pregnant and my baby is almost 3! It seems hard for me to believe sometimes too! We have been so blessed this past year and I am grateful for all that 2008 brought. I look forward to 2009.
We had a fun New Years party with 2 pinatas this year. One for the kids, and one for the adults! It is so funny every year to see adults diving on the cement for dollars! Love it! Thanks for the fun mom and dad!
Derek got engaged and we are excited to have Jenny in the family! Love you guys!
