Hanging Out at Home

Valentine's Day Love

Sneaking in a few hugs before our salmon dinner

Not that these two were hungry after snacking all afternoon at their sisters' class parties

And Moscow Mules for grown-ups' dessert

Monday Domes Trip

 Most of our pictures are still on the good camera, waiting to be downloaded, but here's a few shots of our crew checking out the beauty at the Domes this week. The Show Dome had a huge train display that everyone loved. Grant kept asking "More choo-choo" all day long.

Consolation Champs!

Our school hosted the annual Spirit Tournament this past weekend and it was fantastic!  Mali and Brinnly's team had only won one game so far during the regular season, but pulled off a double-overtime win and followed it up with a second win the following day. They fought hard on the card and cheered even louder on the bench. We're so thankful for such a great team experience for them--and for all of the supporters they had to cheer them on!

February So Far

 1)  The twins are teething (two year molars?) and Grant's especially taking it hard. Good thing he's got so many sisters to cuddle him.

2) We joined the Y to get us through these winter months. The babies and I are enjoying a weekly "Stay and Play" and the older girls and I are really loving the Family Boot Camp classes. At home, the new favorite exercise balls are a huge hit.

3) Excuse the blurry picture, but if you can see the scoreboard, it reads "22-8".  The EGL Wildcats won their first game!  It all came together for that feisty group of girls. I doubt there's ever been a louder post-game locker room.
 4) Carrigan's been sketching a lot lately, along with her little shadow.  Love it. She wants to be an author and illustrator someday.
5) And speaking of such talents, I have not one but TWO friends to brag about. Check out the links below to see each of their work. So proud of both of you, Ruth and Kellie.  The world needs more artists like you!
