saturday skiing

After a week of terrible weather- early dismissal on Monday and school cancelled on Wednesday, Saturday turned out to be a great day. We planned to take both kids out to Great Bear to get more practice skiing. Isaac and Jeff had been out the week before for lessons but Anna hasn't ever been on skis 

Jeff had his skis on to help and I was just another set of hands to help wherever. Off we went. 

Anna got her skis on and she was busy busy screaming and yelling down the hill about how much fun she was having, "wee! the is the best day ever!" She loved to go super fast when Jeff would hold her between his legs. 

Isaac was doing very well. He was able to go all on his own so after a few minutes on the bunny hill. He and Jeff went to the big hill and left Anna and I to practice. I guess Isaac had a big fall on the big hill and kind of put him in a grumpy mood so they came back to practice. 

We had lunch and then went back for more and then had a snack. Then we went home. It went really well. I think Jeff was surprised at how well Anna did and how much fun she had.

Anna Marie Oliver

Anna was born on 12/16/10 @ 4:07pm. She weighed 7lbs 9oz and was 20 inches long. The delivery was the easiest part of my day. After she was born I hemorrhaged and lost 1200 cc's of blood and was taken to the OR to stop the bleeding. Thankfully they got the bleeding under control. After I got back to the room I developed a major spinal headache from the epidural. I went in for 2 different blood patches that never did quite fix it. They would help for about 24 hours or so and then the headache would come back. I ended up spending 5 days flat on my back. People were constantly here taking care of Isaac and only bringing Anna in to nurse. I am so blessed to have all the help but still devastated I wasn't able to spend the time with my new baby and my energetic toddler. I am finally feeling better and am able to be upright for a longer period of time. Thank God. It has been an emotional roller coaster.

Anna is perfect. She eats, sleeps and poops. I forgot how much newborns sleep! Is…

Happy 2nd Birthday Anna!

Oh Happy Birthday to our wild and crazy little girl! One thing for sure I learned this Birthday is having a girl is completely different than having a boy. Pink everything! Pink took kit, pink legos, pink minnie mouse, purse with make up, minnie mouse dress up, and on and on! 
Anna started the day with a few melt downs but as the day went on things went better. When people showed up for the party she was having so much fun! She loved being the center of the party, for sure! 
To my Anna, 
2 years ago you came into our lives and you have changed our world. You strong willed and you think you are the boss. I laugh when you yell at Ozzy, which is most of the time. You and Isaac play well, most of the time. There is the occasional pinch or hit (usually on your part). I have learned to stop fighting you on things like putting socks and shoes on before we go in the car, or putting your coat on. I just bring it with us because you want to do it on your time. I know that you mostly just want …

Visiting Santa

The kids wanted to wait until we got to Arizona to see Santa. That's what we did, the first morning we were there. It is a fun interactive Santa with games and a naughty or nice meter. 
They were both pretty excited to talk to the big guy. Anna stuck around as long as she could.
