Great Wolf Lodge

Last week while the temperature outside was in the single figures we headed up to Great Wolf Lodge with the Hamberg's for a few days. My sister and brother in law were kind enough to stay home with Tyler so we could go and not have to worry about keeping him contained while we were in the water hours on end ( and let me tell you I think he rather enjoyed getting all the attention to himself and not having the kids carry him around like a rag doll!) As you can see from the above pictures the kids had a great time as did the adults!

Happy 4th Birthday Annika

Annika's birthday this year was also the day of yet another big snow storm. Church was canceled, Christmas programs postponed so what better to do then play pin the tail on the dog! This was Rileigh's idea and all her work to get the game together for our party for the big 4 year old!

Notice the kids are still in there PJ's it is 2 in the afternoon! Just wondering why I by my kids real clothes all's they wear in the summer is Bathing Suits and in the winter PJ'S! I will let you know that my kids did change by the big party at 6pm!

Tyler's first sled ride

Tyler watching the neighbor plow our drive way.

This afternoon Tyler was so crabby and I had done about everything for the kids short of standing on my head so I thought what a great time to take him out in the snow! So I haled out the ladder to get his little sled out of the attic but 2 layers of clothes on him and headed out. He loved it! The snow was so deep that he kept on getting it in his face but that didn't fase him. I guess I am going to have to invest in a "real" snow suite for him!

Sucessfull Surgery

The above picture is of the pins that they removed from Rileigh's elbow this morning. Surgery was very quick (only about 15 min) and she once again was so brave through the whole thing! We returned home 2 (just in time for nap) and by 4:30 she was back outside playing with her friends! On the way home I asked her if she wanted us to drop he back off at school and she was all for it! What can I say she loves school!
Thanks so much for all your prayers today they were defiantly felt.
