Where Did February Go?

The end of February is upon us and it has truly flown by.  Chris has been busy at work, but is also completing his final semester of graduate school (including preparing for board exams) and has been working especially hard at his 100 days of exercise challenge.  He has been such a good inspiration for us all.  Ledger and Locke have been real troopers through a difficult couple of weeks.  Grandma Jamie has been out of town for a family emergency and so our child care situation has been changing from day-to-day.  Luckily, they have been rolling with the changes pretty well.  I had a bout of terrible stomach flu right after Valentine's Day and it took me nearly a week to fully recover.  I have been very busy at work but also trying to balance roller derby with planning a 40th anniversary party for Pam & Steve!  So that's been our month, and I expect that March is going to be even crazier!

My Valentine's Day presents from my boys -- Mickey Mouse earrings and pendant!

Getting outside when weather allows!

Since the weather hasn't allowed too much outdoor play, Ledger has started really enjoying drawing!

Bonding time!

Brotherly Love.

Family Update

The last few weeks haven't been particularly busy with special events, but we've managed to keep ourselves busy.  So let me give a quick update in pictures...

At the beginning of February, we received 12" of snow.  We spent some time outside playing in the snow and digging out our driveway.  It resulted in 2 "snow days" where we all (yes, even me!) got to stay home and enjoy some family time.

The 2013 Fantasy Football trophy finally made it's way to Mom's hands.  Hooray for the 2013 CHAMP!

Snow days were full of watching videos and munching on snacks.  We treat them like a holiday! :)

The boys LOVED the Super Bowl halftime performance and danced on the couch through the whole thing!

Mom had her first roller derby bout of the 2014 season.  The Sirens barely eeked out a win against the CKRG roller girls.  Dr. Blockapuss played well and enjoyed getting to play in a new venue -- the Bicentennial Center!

Alright, that brings us mostly up-to-date.  I hope your family is staying warm and enjoying these slower winter days.
