Future Cheerleader?!!

Gwyneth actually watches basketball games (sorta) when we take her. I told John, "Maybe she's going to be a cheerleader?"  He said, "Nope.  Cheerleaders don't watch games, she'll probably play sports!"  ouch.  sorry cheerleaders (:

(Looking at the score board, I think!)

Blue & Gold Banquet

Haydn had his Cub Scout Banquet where he received his awards for the year.  He did a great job, and we were so proud of him! 
The boys invited their families, and Grandma Nancy and Grandpa Larry & Grandma Shirley came to support Haydn and enjoy the food and fun!
During the program, each club performed a skit or a song.  Haydn was the "narrator" in his skit, and he did such a great job! 
What a cute little Tiger Cub!

Our family went sledding, since school was cancelled and John had the day off.  This was the first time Gwyneth & Hutch had ever gone.  (I know...bad parents)  Everyone *loved* it!!  We definitely have some snow-loving kids...I see ski trips in our future...

Rolling around in The Snow

What is more fun for a kid than rolling around in the snow?  Not much!

My kids have been having their fair share of doing just that this last week since we've been snowed in and have gone NOWHERE since Monday.  Can you believe that I haven't left my property (: since Tuesday morning?!!  Pure bliss!

Here's Haydn making one of his snow forts (you know, the one Daddy helped him make that gets caved in almost every day?  So then we just decided to have it be a snow "tunnel" with no top?)  That one.

Fun at B5

My "Besties" (that word just cracks me up) took me out for my birthday dinner.  I heart these girls (:
We had a great time together, and I always wish we had more time to spend together! 
Thanks Jackie, Ryanne and Lindsay!!! You made me feel so special!

Winter Sky

Monday morning, the frost froze on the trees.  I *love* it when that happens.  The trees are so magical and gorgeous!  Of course, I couldn't resist stepping outside and taking a few pictures! 
Look at that sky!!


This is what our dining room table looks like when we all decide to do "projects" together!!!!
Last week, I was working on decorations, the guys were working on Pinewood Derby cars for Cub Scouts (and Valentine's Day Cards), and Gwyneth was coloring. What a fun mess!

We're Baaaaaaack!!

I've decided that the blog is coming back.  I missed it more than I thought I would, and I've had several requests to get it going again.  So.... here it is!  Enjoy!!!!!

Gwyneth's Birthday!

Gwyneth is TWO!!  Can you believe it?!!

We had a busy Birthday weekend-so much fun!  It was changed a little bit by the blizzard (: we had, but everything worked out!

Friday night, we had John's family over to our house.

The cake

Triple layer-one white, one pink, and one red with strawberry filling made by me.
I heard Hutch tell someone, "My mom didn't buy that cake from a bakery.  MY MOM made that cake!!" 
I had the cake sitting on the stove so Gywneth wouldn't get it.  Ha!!  She pushed a little chair up and was taste testing it-just a little.......or a lot!!

I made some cute decorations for her parties.  Some of them will go in her room when we're finished with them for parties.

Taking a spin on her new bike from Grandma Nancy

On Sunday, we had my family's party at Nana & Papa's house.  (it was supposed to be Saturday, but got rescheduled because of the weather)
My mom made her cakes.  W-O-W!!!!
She is amazing, if you didn't already know.  They were so incredibly cool, AND they tasted great!
Daddy with his Birthday Girl!

She wasn't sure what to think of her talking horse at first!!

Happy Birthday, Gwyneth!  You bring Sugar and Spice to our lives!  We love you!!
