Blissful February Weather

We snuck Laurel out of school at 1pm on a 62 degree Friday afternoon for "personal" reasons.  Personal reasons based in the fact that we needed to go hiking!  DR, of course, found the necessary stick.



Dinosaurs!

We love the dinosaur museum, and took advantage of the member discount at our last visit so the kids could outline their own real fish fossil.  Awesome drills!

Pantry, closet, and a REALLY deep tub







For my sisters, quick photos of the new house

It's prettier in person; girls, I refused to set up the old kitchen table in this new house. In the meantime am using a folding table until I save enough for a semblance of what I want.  I didn't want to rush into anything!

Boxed Cereal!

Will wonders never cease?  Off-the-shelf-cereal, lovingly arranged under the tree?  Yep, they were stoked!


Santa Came!


The kids were particularly enthralled with the new hats their stuffed animals were sporting - Santa likes the Dollar Store!

Gingerbread Houses

The kids love our Christmas Eve tradition. I'm grateful Luke is willing to help them finesse that sticky frosting!

Anne has a bug-eyed marzipan snowman. 


Dean was proud of his peppermint see-saw.



And my prednisone-cheeked cutie was proud of the snake corral in the back (gummy worms.)
