Ski Trip

We decided to forgo the Spring Break madness and take the kids skiing this year during February.  It was a great decision!  No injuries, very few tears and an all around good time.  
This is our secret location, in Colorado, low crowds and great skill level runs for everyone - from my husband who is more experienced, myself (just learning those Blues), and the kids - we enrolled them in Ski School for 2 days.  Best money spent on the whole trip!
My sweet girl - all smiles!

That's a blue run behind me - I did it!  
Those are my babies headed up that huge mountain!  They did perfectly fine - and loved it!  

The fam - posing at the base of the mountain.  (Did I mention, we are in Crested Butte?  Sssshhhh... it's a secret!  We love this place, don't want it to get too crowded!)

Taking a hot chocolate break - probably the only day that anyone got remotely cold.

My little guy - 5 years old - skiing down the same runs as me!  Of course.  
Our drive home, through the Texas Panhandle - gorgeous sunset.

Pinterest Projects

Follow Me on Pinterest

Have you discovered Pinterest yet?  It has become my go to place to organize ALL of those great recipes, craft ideas, organizing tips, activities, music, that I find floating around on the web.  Yes - it CAN be a time toilet, BUT... I've actually found that once I've created useful boards full of great ideas, it's a simple click and I'm ready to go.  Need a recipe for a neighborhood get together? Need a quick sewing project?  Need a Valentine's Day idea for your child's class?  Need tips on cleaning those hard to tackle places in your home?  It's ALL on Pinterest!  
Here are some of the projects I've done over that past several months.

A Day of Pure Ho Ho Ho

My kids know the meaning of Christmas.  As my 5 year old son kindly reminded me "Mom, it's NOT about the presents, it's about Baby Jesus".  I must be doing something right! 
With that being said, they also marvel at the magic of Christmas and the spirit of giving, which is Santa Claus!  
So - I wanted to share a few pictures of them with their favorite man in red.  

Hope you all aren't too stressed out right now getting ready for the rather large, full of expectations holiday.  For myself, I'd say my stress level is at a 6.5 (on a scale of 1-10).  Previous years I've been about a 9 at this point - but this year I managed to get some shopping done early - which helped tremendously.  
All I need now is a Silent Night and some hot coffee and Bailey's  :)

Happy Birthdays and Back to School 2011

I cannot possibly fathom how it is that my kids are now 9 and 5 years old.  Where in the heck, does the time GO?
I'm late posting pictures anyway, and thought I'd combine birthdays, back to school, and both kids.  (Let's not discuss the fact that my own BIG birthday occurred this month as well - maybe.. more on that one later!  I'm just happy to celebrate 29 from here on out!)

Here's the boy - cute as ever with his little cake at the Putt Putt golf course.  We gave him a party with his little friends to play golf.  It was a hit - Star Wars + Putt Putt.

My girl just turned 9 years old - so hard to believe!  The angel on her cake, was mine.  I have a collection of them (Josef Originals) from ages 1-18.  Well... the #8 is missing in action.  I'm suspecting she is partying it up in the attic somewhere with GI Joe, but that hasn't been confirmed.

Back to school for my sweet girl - 3rd grade this year.

And... Pre-K for the boy.  He will be quick to point out to you that he is in the "older" Pre-K classroom, so as to distinguish from the "younger" children.  Three days a week this year - and so far so good!  Both boy and Mom are extremely happy.

And, we couldn't have just a normal photo session - nope - this is our "normal" - my little goof ball.  the Ham. the comedian.  Never a dull moment around here!
