Whoops! It's been months!

So I realized that I haven't posted or updated the family blog in a long while! I will download pictures and do a few posts over the next few days! We are staying busy as always, but we are loving life and trying to enjoy the chaos!

February Snow!

What a wonderful surprise we got! Lilly's school got cancelled for the day and Kenzi's school got out two hours early due to the arrival of the beautiful white stuff that falls from the sky. Amazingly enough, not only did it fall from the sky, but it stuck to the ground too! Boy were we glad that we had snow gear to play in!

I'm not going to elaborate on all the pictures, I can if you'd like, but you'll have to comment asking what was going on in order for that to happen! Enjoy the photos!


Playing at home just wasn't enough, so we went over to my parents where my nephews were already playing on their driveway. I love that driveway! So many memories of bikes and sleds and all kinds of things going down that driveway! It screams childhood to me! :)

We even pulled out my parents old toboggan to go down the hill on!

My parents untouched back lawn. So pretty!

The slide was filled with snow...literally....

Then the freezing rain came....looks cool at least....

Poor little girl was so tuckered out that whole weekend from all the playing! Fell asleep with food all over her face....silly little thing!

"Cool Mom" that I try to be...I wanted to do something fun and yummy for the day that we were not snowed in....but ICED in from the Freezing Rain. I made two different donuts, sour cream donuts (AMAZING!) and good old fashioned Yeast Doughnuts (The Pioneer Woman's recipe and they were also AWESOME!) I may not win Mom of the year, but I can certainly try to do fun things with them every now and again. :)

We were sick a TON in January and February...but we sure tried to have fun in spite of it! We hope that you did too!
