Snow day...

Snow!!! We finally got our first and maybe only round of the white stuff this past Sunday. It was 60 degrees on Saturday and then Sunday afternoon and night we ended up getting about 2 and half inches of snow. That was enough for us to get out of school on Monday! The fluffy bundle of goodness only hung around for about 20 hours, but we managed to get out in it for some fun bright and early Monday morning. Ollie had a blast, Sarah Claire on the other hand enjoyed it at first, wanted nothing to do with the sled.

We are gearing up for the big birthday weekend. We decided to invite some of Ollie's best buds over for a sleepover on Friday night, we are hoping this ends up being a great time for all, we shall see. Then we have plans for a big family dinner on Saturday to celebrate Ollie and Sarah Claire's bdays together. The big birthday surprise for parents are taking him to Disney World next good to be loved! So hard to believe we will have a 5 year old and a 2 year old come next week! Time sure does fly.

bath time fun and random rambles...

Oh my, sorry it's been well almost a month since my last blog post. That's probably the longest blogging black out ever...much has been going on around here, all really great and fun stuff. I am still enjoying snapping pictures, I recently downloaded Picasa 3 and this is where these ever so cute bath time shots from earlier tonight got their cool editing features.

Flashback about 6 weeks ago we sold Bravo Signs. Yes. Sold the family business. It's a great thing and we're excited about this development. Matt is working on a new venture. In the meantime, it's been fun for our family, much more meaningful family time, it's lightened the load for me in new ways and yeah, just a huge blessing. The big event to come...a month long summer family RV trip across country. We know our kids are small but when will we ever have another time to take a family adventure like this. Love any tips on this.

Oh, what else...Ollie will be 5 in two and half weeks, c-razy!!! Sarah Claire is talking up a storm, learned to count to 10 in Spanish at school. See pic above of her face...she's saying the word "ocho" soooo cute! I cut 6 inches off my hair and am totally obsessed with the whole Pinterest thing...we've eaten better in the past few weeks than ever, fun times! We are loving this incredibly warm "winter" but I hope that Sarah Claire will one day get to wear the oh so cute pink snow bib I picked up for her a month ago...we shall see!
