Great day!

I know. You may be a bit shocked now. Hopefully you’ve picked yourself up off the floor and realized that yes, I really have done two posts in two days. There’s good reason behind it though. Well, more than just the fact that I actually enjoy the release blogging brings me and I’d like to do it more for my own selfish reasons. I’m also writing again today because it was one of my favorite days of the year. Even though the day seemed to drag on longer than a dance recital (you know what I mean), the best part was when I left work to grab some lunch and I had to roll down my window because it was too warm in the car. There is just something about being able to roll down your window again without having your ear freeze off or seeing your own breath. I’m not sure what the temperature was, but it was warm enough to roll down the window and that’s all that matters. It was sweet bliss to feel the breeze against my hairless head, crank up some tunes and enjoy the time that was available before it inevitably snows again. Probably tomorrow.

Quick update

So Jess is off with her mom, sister and sister-in-law scrapbooking something together and I just got the kids down to bed a while ago and surfing the net. Figured this was as good a time as any to give a quick update of what's been going on around here. This past weekend was pretty uneventful except for when we went to some friends house on Friday night and played Guitar Hero World Tour (I totally rocked the Beastie Boys 'No Sleep 'Till Brooklyn) while the kids played with each other. Well, at the end of the night when we were hoarse from singing and laughing we gathered up the kids and Austin's eye was pink and goopy. We get him home and sure enough, it's pink eye. Well, we've been lucky it hasn't spread to anyone else. I had it as a kid and it was the worst! My eye was always hurting and extra goopy. I'm not talking little eye boogers here. I'm talking full scale assault on my eye. I couldn't open then in the morning because they were caked. Nasty and probably a little too graphic for some, but that's how it was. I'm so thankful Austin hasn't had that. He said they hurt some, but that's about it. So he's missed church, preschool and not been able to go to the daycare so far, but he's doing a lot better and it's almost cleared up. That's about it for this post. Sorry it wasn't more exciting. I really will try to do better and get more pics up soon.

Happy Valentine's Day

About the only way Austin will give anyone a kiss these days is if he has these fake lips in his mouth. They thought they were pretty fun to play with. I think they thought their mom was crazy when she asked them to give each other a kiss.

Carter giving his webkinz some good loves.

Kaylee had silly glasses day at school. These are the ones she picked.

Seth and Jess at a Jazz game. It was pretty awesome to sit in a suite. I think we gained 5 pounds though. So much for the diet.

All bundled up to go outside in the freezing cold. Do you like the socks on his hands???

Sledding, Sledding, and more sledding.
