Harley is gone in Indonesia and I have crafts planned all week :) It is freezing outside and it looks like a storm is coming in. I just went to the grocery store and to Michaels craft store in anticipation of being stuck inside! I have to keep these kids busy without going crazy.

Craft # 1 Valentine's Cards

Kayla looks so old in this picture to me. She's changed a lot this school year.
I'm not sure any of these cards are thin enough to mail but we'll see. They got carried away with the hearts making the cards a little thick to put in an envelope.

Burning some Energy

Our friends have a trampoline and they told us we are welcome to use it whenever. The girls were "off the walls" today and needed to release some energy in between football games. It was pretty chilly so I made them wear snow suits but by the end they were just jumping in their regular clothes. Crazy girls!

Catching some air!

Silly Kayla in the background. Lydi doesn't seemed phased.
I was trying to capture Lydi's static hair-d0

Swim Suits in January

As a mom when do you say "no"? The girls wanted to put their swim suits on today and the only thing stopping me from saying "yes" was that it's January 18th in Colorado! It's just not right to be in a swim suit in the middle of winter. It was actually a very nice day in the sunshine and there was absolutely no wind. I said "why not!".
Eva and her momma, Amy, were visiting from across the street. Eva was enjoying some sunshine in Malia's exersaucer. I know, it's hard to believe it was actually this warm. Gotta love Colorado!

Lydi was actually smart enough not to get wet.
Kayla is actually just crazy!

Big Helper

Kayla being a big helper. She's been wanting to feed Malia for months now, I finally just gave in. She did a pretty good job but it was difficult to watch at times. Malia didn't seem affected by it though.

It's hard to feed a baby without opening your mouth as well.
I caught Kayla on camera :)

I'm not sure why I posted so many of the same picture. They were all just so cute, I couldn't decide. Malia just turned 9 months. She's been experimenting with all sorts of solids. She seems to really enjoy food and is not very picky.

Broncos Game

Our awesome neighbor, James, had 2 extra Bronco tickets and invited Harley and Tree to the game. This may not seem significant to some but it was Tree's first professional football game! They all had a good time. Broncos lost but it was exciting to the very end.

New Year's Eve!

We had a great New Year's Eve that was filled with lots of fun, friendship and cheer! Dad offerred to babysit and Harley and I partook in the neighborhood progressive fondue party. It was a great night and an awesome way to ring in the new year!
Dad with the girls
I think the night for them involved homeade pizza, cupcakes, a movie, and watching the ball drop in NY at 10 o'clock (they thought it was midnight)
We have been very blessed to live in a neighborhood that demonstrates the real importance of community and the value of getting to know one another. We are extremely thankful this past year as our "community" has rallied behind us and has been very supportive and has helped out in numerous ways! New Years Eve was a night to celebrate community and hopefully get to know everyone a little better.

Har and I before we left.
It's been awhile since we've been out, just the 2 of us. Thanks Dad for babysitting!
The girls
The guys

17 couples, 10 different houses hosting, an amazing spread of food, an incredible night, wonderful friends, an amazing neighborhood, lots of laughs, lots of fun and a perfect way to ring in the New Year! Rhonda and Heather are the 2 women responsible for making this evening such a success. They thrive off organization, attention to detail and know how to throw an amazing party! Thanks girls!
