Holy Frosty....This guy was huge Mark and I almost couldn't get the middle section up and on! It was so heavy. I am not sure were Mark disappeared to (He knew that I was going to take a picture and ditched out), but seriously this was the biggest snowman I have ever seen! I was so proud of him and the kids. Of course the kids wanted to name him frosty. They loved to look out the window at him and see if he is going to come to life. I told them that he doesn't have a top hat so he won't be coming to life anytime soon.

There are a lot of things we try to do to stay busy while we are cooped up in the house. We LOVE to play games. Currently JJ's favorite is Candy Land. Brecken loves cootie. Bryn loves to empty out all my drawers especially the zip lock drawer.

My neighbor was so sweet to take Brynlee so that Mark and I could take the kids sledding. My little snow bunny Jj LOVED it she could literally spend all day outside even though it was zero degrees (BRRRRR) Brecks on the other hand has fun for a few times and then is ready to go.
JJ thought it would be fun to body sled..I was surprised at how fast she was able to go. It helped that it was so cold that the snow was slightly frozen.

Great Grandma Thomas made all of our kids beautiful piggy banks. JJ got a pig that she adores! Bryn has a Teddy Bear. I let them get them down and sit on their bed to play with them. There are rules though, NO CARRYING THEM! Brecks has recently really loved playing with his. He is so funny that for a few nights he kissed it goodnight.
Why I hate being so behind on my blog! I can't remember why he was in the sink..so sad! But oh well he is a silly boy who loves to do naughty things and thinks it's so funny!
And she can't stand for him to get attention that she doesn't get... So she copied him.

Mark has the hook up for UNI games..We have been super lucky to go to several football games and basketball games. One of the Dr.s that he works with always offers Mark his extra tickets if his family doesn't go. So on top of the fact that I love live sporting events they are FREE! Seriously I have a slight passion for free things.
Here is my goofy girl.....
And here is my sweet girl.....
Here are my two teasers...
Well the pictures don't really show it but we had a fun time at my good friend Nancy's house. She made a super yummy Chinese dinner and we watched movies it was really fun for the kids and us because we are at the stage were we love kids movies now..yikes! What comes next?
My mom is what I consider a great singer, but as far as Glee goes she was not so hot! Grandma Connie got us Glee Sing it for Christmas ( Thanks to Torie!) and it is so much fun. Well take out the fact that I am a TERRIBLE singer but that's cool because it is so much fun. I have never played any kind of game like this with my mom and it was so FUN she was literally ripping the microphone from my sisters hands! Mark has learned how to just hmm and beat me, honestly I am the worse player ever and yet I am the one who is always so excited to play, other than Torie.
MY kids are so animated and Bryn is going to be just as flamboyant as the other two.. She has two looks one that she can melt your heart with this sweet smile from her eyes..and this one where you know she is just going to be funny.
Really will you let me take one picture without your finger in your nose?
Grandpa dug out a little area for the kids to hide in, it's so funny how a little cave can make the kids so excited.
I am so grateful for Grandpa's, they are so much fun and like to break the rules a little bit.

Well Bryn is a teaser..wonder why? Her new way of teasing is doing the exact opposite of what you tell her to do, for instance the stinkin stairs. I think the majority of the time I spent at my mom's I spent chasing her up those darn stairs. Then she gives me that grin and I can't help but laugh.
My mom had a huge pile of snow outside her house so the kids and I just had fun on it. They tore it up. I am sure it was nothing compared to the huge hill Grandpa took them to the day before but they didn't seem to mind. Brecks just loved to push JJ down! I think he realized it was the first time he didn't get in trouble if he was pushing her!
