What is black, white, and gray?

I think I was wearing my favorite outfit today. As I changed my clothes I noticed I had on a white t-shirt, black running pants, and a gray hoodie. What is better than that, and in my three favorite colors. I think I need some color in my life, don't you?

New Brother

Today Sinclaire was helping me make Kit Kat's One Year Old book and she said, "Do you know what my brother's name is?" And of course I was expecting her to say Tiny, but she said his name was Uchtdorf. And she kept playing and talking about her brother named Uchtdorf. Needless to say, it was pretty funny.

.President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Ummm...I think I am a bit young for him to be my son.

Happy Birthday

Everyone got their own puppy. Tiny got the tiny one, Sinclaire picked the rainbow one,
Kit got the pink one in the back, and the birthday girl picked
the pink one laying down.

Last week our friend Morgen had a birthday and her favorite color is red, favorite animal is the dog, and candy right now is raisinets. So we did our best and made little fondant puppies, decorated a cupcake for the doghouse, and put a pile of raisinets on top. They turned out very cute even though we didn't get a great picture. Thanks for having a birthday so we could celebrate.

My kids are such bums. I think they could do this all day.

Happy Valentines Day

Sam got me these beautiful flowers, it was the flower at our wedding and so they reminded him of that. I love them, these are mini and just so cute. He also got me airheads and cherry laffytaffy. What more could you ask for?

Snowman number II

Our snowman melted, so we had to build a different one. This one is Sinclaire size and that is VERY cool for her.

Playing in the snow

Tiny was loving the swing. I think he would have stayed there all day if I would have let him. I took him out twice and he was pretty upset.

And after he realized we were staying inside he was really upset.

Kit loves to swing too. I think she is just eating snow in this picture, but oh well. I didn't really think I would ever swing my kiddos when there is a sheet of ice covering everything and then 5 inches of snow on top, but it was fun. Sinclaire even made a treasure hunt. She marked a spot with an X and I had to find it. It was pretty tough too.

Our snowman and dinner

Sinclaire wanted to be the mom for the afternoon and she got dinner ready. This is all we really had after not going to the grocery for about 10 days except for milk. There is three different kinds of meat turkey, beef and bacon. We just wanted to make sure we had a variety.


We got 4.5 -5 inches of snow today and so we went sledding. It was so fun. Even Tiny had fun for about an hour. Our front yard slopes a bit and we had two different runs and just kept going. I think they could have gone for hours, but eventually we had to drag them in. I love playing outside.

Ice storm II

We were a bit disappointed in the second wave of the ice storm, but this is the windshield after the second storm. It really was amazing. I just heated up the van and in about 10-12 minutes id was ready to almost just slide off. Sam stayed home today and we got everything on the list done except one that was a maybe. But we played the game of Life instead and the girls loved it. (And the plumbing in the bathroom sink in finished and working and I am so excited.)

Pile of pitas

What else to do in the middle of an ice storm than make a pile of pitas. I love these things. This week I used them to make pizza and they were great.

Ice storm I

This is what I got to do this morning. Scrap inches of ice off of Sam's window. He wasn't going to go, but changed his mind. It really wasn't too bad, we just started the car and waited about 20 minutes. It was pretty thick, you could hardly tell where the windshield wipers were. We are suppose to get more tonight, we will just have to wait and see. We will pretend it is an adventure.
