The Fresh Beat Band!

On sort of a last minute whim Isaac and I went to Sioux City today to see The Fresh Beat Band. I heard they were going to be in the area but didn't think it would work out. Little did I know, they were here this weekend. A friend of mine asked if we wanted to go with her and her 2 boys so off we went. Isaac really likes The Fresh Beat Band. We were excited, and had a really good time!

this moment

Joining Soulemama in {this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.

snow day!

We finally got enough snow to go outside and play. Once Anna got out she didn't want to come back inside. She wouldn't wear gloves so her hands were freezing after about 15 minutes. But, every time I brought her inside she cried and cried. I ended up taking her out back to the swing set and she was all smiles. It was fun. We finally get to enjoy a little snow.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Every year Jeff comes home at some point in the day with Valentine's day goodies. Today was no different. He came home with flowers for me, balloons for Anna and Hershey kisses for Isaac. How did we get so lucky?!?!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's school party

Today I went to Isaac's school Valentine's party. Suzie watched Anna so I could spend my time with Isaac and his friends at school. I really enjoy spending time in his classroom. I really look forward to the days when I can be in school more. I hope he is ok with this as he gets older! The kids got to decorate cupcakes and decorate their Valentine bags. They got to play, "pin the nose on the Valentine". Below are some pictures from the day.

hitting the slopes!

Jeff has been looking forward to taking Isaac skiing since Isaac was little. This is the year! They went out to Great Bear today and were gone for over 4 hours! I never thought it would last that long. Especially after I got a text from Jeff and hour into it saying Isaac wanted to go home. They started on the bunny hill and Jeff was just in boots helping Isaac. An hour later I got a text saying Isaac was having fun. He loved going fast and hated to stop. Then Jeff put on his skis and Isaac skied between his legs. This is when Isaac started having fun. In fact, when I asked Isaac what his favorite part of the day was he told me it was when he went really fast with Daddy. Jeff even took Isaac up on the chair lift (or the clift as Isaac calls it) and took him down the big hill. I am happy Isaac is getting some exposure to skiing since we will be on a ski trip with Jeff's family next month in Lake Tahoe. We hope to get Isaac out once a week until we go so he will be rocking the mountain!
This was another favorite for Isaac- snack time!

Kind of a last minute decision I made was to put the kids in a Kindermusik class together. We started on Friday and Isaac picked up right where we left off from last year. He was dancing and marching and making new friends. Anna was new and was kind of shy and definitely clingy. I remember when Isaac started this he was very shy. I know she will warm up soon. She did go sit on the teachers lap for part of the class. This will be a fun activity for the kids and me to do together. I feel over the last year we haven't really committed to anything with Anna being so little. It was a challenge but I feel it will pay off. It is a Family Time themed Kindermusik class.

frosty morning

This morning when we woke up everything outside was covered in frost. It was so so beautiful. I took a couple of pics with my phone before it all melted.

Love it!
