Week 8

Oh how I am longing for Spring. This winter is seeming to drag and I am getting antsy sitting at home so much. I'm ready for beautiful weather and golden hour! We got a big dumping of snow and it seems that for the next 2 weeks we will be getting snow every other day. I'm feeling so uninspired to get my camera out and document anything…..

I did however get these of Pax man! He hates being in front of my camera so I have to take full advantage of the few times he says it's ok.

The kids enjoyed playing in all this snow. It was below freezing out though so it didn't last long…

Week 7

Both kids had their Valentine's Day parties on the same day at the exact same time. This was the first time I've ever had to choose which event to go to. I felt guilty that I couldn't attend both, as silly as that sounds. Luckily my husband said he would take the morning off and go to the other kiddo's party so that both would have a parent there, yay! Since I was asked to bring food and help set up at Alexis', I went to that one while Cory went to Paxton's. I gave Cory our old Canon Rebel and told him to please take a few pictures for me. Thankfully he took a ton!

Alexis and Cory went to the father-daughter dance! He said she could pick wherever she wanted to eat dinner and she picked Stuft (a burger place) ha! They had a great time dancing the night away. I'm so grateful for such a awesome husband who does things like this for his baby girl. Paxton and I put our PJ's on, got some McDonald's happy meals and watched the Lego Movie while cuddled up on the couch. =)

Happy Valentine's Day!! We decided to spend it as a family. We took the kids to a local outdoor ice-skating rink. This was Paxton's first time and he loved every second of it! Only in Colorado do you go ice-skating in short-sleeve shirts!

For dinner we picked up a heart-shaped pizza and I set the table with some fun themed plates and champagne glasses. The kids thought they were getting "wine" (sparkling cidar) and boy did they think they were getting away with something…

It was the perfect day with the ones I love most!

Week 6

I took the kids to a Berry Blendz that's close to our house on a Friday afternoon for a treat! 

We celebrated Cory's 29th Birthday! It was pretty low-key this year. Partially because I'm pregnant and I swear this baby is eating my brain and using all my energy, and because we'll be throwing a HUGE party for his 30th next year. We went to a brewery for dinner and so he could have a couple of beers.

It was Crazy Hair Day at school! Alexis said she wanted a "rockstar mohawk" so I tried my best! I think it turned out pretty cute. I love these spirit days, so fun!

Week 5

Paxton and I made strawberry muffins. He calls them "strawberry shortcakes" =)

Alexis did the junior cheerleading clinic at our local high school. They got to perform at half-time of a girls basketball game. She was in the back row and I could hardly see her, but she had a great time and loved every second of it!

More nice winter days, yay! Paxton has worn his Captain America costume every day for a week. He will put on normal clothes for school, but the moment we get home he strips those off and it's back to Captain America. I love childhood and imaginations!
