After a a couple of good snowy days last week and a gorgeous day on Sunday we decided to take the kids sledding. I met Suzie out there and we had so much fun. Lots of runs and so many giggles. There were a couple of wipe outs, but we all survived. 

It was such a fun afternoon!

Girl Scout Cookies!

My life has been consumed by everything Girl Scouts for about the last month. Between our meetings and selling cookies, it pretty much takes up most of my time.

My basement was full off cookies and thankfully the supply has slowly depleted. 

It has been a crazy experience and pretty fun. 

Jeff's ski trip and our busy weekend

Jeff went on his annual boys trip to ski in Montana. He was so excited to go. He had a great time. The photo below is one of 3 phots he sent me. All the same type of pic, on the 3 different days. He came home tired.

While Jeff was away the kids and I were busy. Anna and I had several Girl Scout booths (different post), Isaac had soccer practice and basketball practice. Anna and I went to dinner and a play- which was so much fun. Isaac had a sleepover. We were able to go to the arcade. And we had the best afternoon sledding. (is in another post).

Babysitting Josie

We babysat our friends dog over President's weekend. The kids loved having her around. 

She is an old doggie who is missing all of her teeth but one, so her tongue hangs out of her mouth all the time. 

When she arrived she didn't walk up or down stairs and was ok in her kennel. When she left she was walking up and down the stairs and hated being in her kennel. Our young pups sure wore off on her.

Pentagon Basketball

Isaac and his ball team played in the Pentagon. It was a crazy fun 15 minute game. The kids had a great time!

Valentine's Day

Valentin's Day landed on Ash Wednesday this year so the kids celebrated Valentine's Day at school the day before.

Since I helped in Isaac's room for the All Saints day party I helped with Anna's room for Valentine's Day. And, lucky for Anna- I needed extra help so Jeff came to help, too!

We had a good time. 

I had to work on Valentine's Day this year so Jeff and the kids spent the evening together. I missed my crew but I know they were in good company with each other. 

Next year I will be around.

Hanging with the Munce Kids

We watched the Munce kids so Suzie and Dave could go to a concert in the cities. The kiddos came over Saturday morning and we hung all day. Saturday evening I took Piper, Greta and Anna back to Suzie's to sleep due to Greta's allergies. On Sunday morning we came back home and spent the day until the later afternoon when Suzie and Dave got home

It was easy peasy lemon squeezy. There were moments of crazy and the kids missed their parents once in a while but overall it went really well. The Munce kids adore my kiddos visa versa. They keep each other very busy.
