Too busy to blog!


Jeremy and I are living it up in Utah right now with some fun friends. We are staying in an amazing condo with a gorgeous view of Park City. We've skied.....okay, they've skied for 3 days. I did ski one day, but just don't find enough enjoyment in it anymore to spend money on it. I've enjoyed lounging around the great house, taking some good naps, and today I toured Olympic Park all by myself. That was one of the coolest places I've ever been in my whole life. I got to stand at the very top of the 120 meter Nordic jump ramp where the Olympic athletes stood in 2002, got to watch some of the Junior National Championship Luge competition that was being held when I was there, got to meet the actual announcer of the 2002 winter Olympics......anyway, more on that later with cool pictures included. For now, I'm off to nap until it's time to pick the others up from the ski resort!

It was nothing but LOVE at our house!

Hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine's Day! It was like any other day at our house.....completely busy.....but it ended on a great note! We started a tradition last year with the Way Family. We do dinner together.....a fantastic "RED" dinner and end it with yummy dessert. We had spaghetti, salad and bread (not red, but oh well), and then had red sugar cookies with red/pink icing and sprinkles. It's a fun thing that I hope our kids will look forward to in the future. Below are some pics from our evening.......

My little lovies

The three kiddos!


Take three and Charlie's outta there!


He thought it'd be more fun to eat some cookies! I agree!!!




Amie helped Cassidee put some icing on her cookies!


If you remember from last year, Amie had to help Cassidee with the sprinkles.....
they skipped the cookies and put the sprinkles straight into Cassidee's mouth! :)


This year, however, Cass wanted her cookie to be a real work of art. She worked on it so long that she didn't even eat it. I guess she thought it looked to pretty.....
OR
she kept eating icing straight out of the bowl and was too full to eat her cookie!



Here's our little man looking all proud of himself!

Since I've had two kids, I've tried to find matching/coordinating outfits for the two of them. Cassidee's favorite color is green, and I found some green wind pants for the two of them.
Score!


And here are Cason's 7 month pictures......a week and a half late.
(Atleast I took them on the right day.....it's getting them posted that I have trouble with!)



And the other day we went to the park since it was gorgeous outside. We put Cason in a cap and Cass thought she needed one too. Funny, that hat is sized 6-12 months.....pin head! :)


Cason, looking all G-cool in his side-wards hat!




He loved the swing!

I got this survey on an email at work. I was bored and was going to do it and email it out. I decided to do it here instead.
