Juice boxes and bunny tails

 Sorry for the delay grandparents (and anyone else who is interested in the late spring happenings of a family of four).... but since I know we have a lot more pictures coming down the pipeline...I figured it was time for some catch-up!

Another graduation from tumbling tots -- because we really needed another plastic medal for our toy box.... :-) (they are pretty cute in their victory poses....choking hazard aside)

 No better spot for a pony.

 Will you be my valentine? (bed-head is a bonus!)


Why not wash windows in the nude? (although as Mike pointed out...it's probably the chore they are the least suited too...it requiring no finger marks and consistent application of cleaning solution...)

 Roaring 20s bday party for cousin Kelly. Oh my!

Cartoon giggles on the computer.

Good morning sunshine....

Yogurt residue. A delight.


Easter Sunday. 

Ellie and her first soccer season -- go Green Machine!

Rainy day forts. 

Someone helped herself to eye makeup on Sunday morning...gave her Dad a heart attack! 4 going on 16 (with adjacent attitude...)

The wonders of down. We have all been converted.

So...we're a little behind on our photos and blogging -- but better late than never, right? We had another great holiday in Coeur d'Alene with all of our family -- even though we only got a few days of snow. 

Heading off to see Silent Night at the playhouse -- a beautiful and touching show!

Augie and his budding pianists...

In excelsis Deo.

So much happiness! Swinging is probably Charlotte's favorite thing to do -- she even fell asleep in that swing a little bit later. :-)

And now we're cold and done...

Finally, a WOD we can all get excited about!

Little gender-reveal party...

It's a boy!! So exciting!!

Apparently, the fourth gift of Christmas was a duck call....

We even got a special visit from Santa on Christmas Eve!

Skyping with Caleb on Christmas.

The best way to get up a sledding hil...

Nana's baking helpers... lots of healthcode violations...

Ellie did great on her second time skiing, especially in the bitter cold. One and 1/2 runs and "the cold is getting on me so maybe we go to the cabin and go hot-tubbing??"...not a bad strategy...

That 1/4 day on the hill can really take it out of you...

New Years!!

Yeah..I'm a little embarrassed by all of our stuff too...probably the last non-Thule rack road trip....
