My Sweetie Turned 30!

Callin turned thirty this week! I told him that I get to call him old but only for one more month because then I will turn thirty. I can't believe we are that old. Callin's dad called him that day and said, "you think your old, well my baby just turned thirty. That makes me feel really old." I guess that made Callin feel a little better.

The only thing he asked for was Mountain Dew and Sour Patch Kids. He's not picky.

Love ya hun, I hope you had a wonderful birthday!

Trip to Big Sky Montana

I know she is going to KILL me for posting this but I had to show what a sweet heart my sister is. She came all the way from Las Vegas to watch my kids for a whole weekend while Callin and I went and played in Montana. As you can see my kids wore her out, and now she needs a long vacation. Don't worry Jenn, I'll make it up to you. Thanks a million times for letting us go and have so much fun. You're the best!
See don't we look so happy to be skiing. Well, we were. We had sooooo much fun!
The views from the ski lift were amazing!
This is the view right beside our hotel. Gorgeous I know!
These are some of our friends that came with us. When Callin told me that he had the chance to do some continuing education in Montana with some of our Ohio friends, I said we had to go no matter what. Things just fell into place so well I thought it was too good to be true. I had been so homesick for Ohio lately and this was just what I needed. It was so good to see everyone and it didn't seem like two years since we last saw everyone. We just picked up right where we left off.
Here was the lobby of our hotel. We hung out there ALOT while our husbands were in class. It was great to just chit chat and relax. Thanks girls for the fun weekend and I can't wait to see you all again next year!

My Date with Gabe

Gabe has been begging me to take him skiing for a long time and I finally had the chance to take him this year. He was a little nervous at first but he caught the hang of things really quick. By the end of the day he was a pro. It was so fun to have a whole day with Gabe. He is a fun kid and he makes me laugh all the time. Thanks buddy for the date. I hope we get to do it again soon.
Gabe with his cousin Tyler and Grandma Nancy. This was Tyler's first time skiing too and he did awesome too. They both had so much fun. They are already asking when they can go again.
Gabe had been so cautious all day and taken his time coming down the mountain. So when I was at the top of this hill with him, I told him to wait until I could get to the bottom of the hill so I could take his picture. When I got down the hill and got my camera out he started plowing down the hill so fast I thought for sure he was out of control and going to kill himself. I guess he was just showing off for the camera because when he got to the bottom he just stopped and said, "did you get that on camera?" I should have taken a video instead.

Will the Snow Ever End?

We had a huge snowstorm not too long ago. I got all the kids outside to help shovel us out of our driveway. Callin got home when we were about halfway done and we didn't think we were going to make it. Our nice neighbor Trevor also came and helped Callin with the rest of it. Thanks guys for your hard work! I hope the snowstorms are done for the year.

Kai was in heaven with all the snow.
It was dark by the time we finished but I was happy when it was done.
As we anxiously await for spring to arrive, this is a very typical scene in our home. I think we all hope that the weather warms up real soon.
