MIA this blog has been neglected to say the least! Sorry! These are from January and last week. Most winters are very boring and we don't do much but boy have we been busy. Many play dates, meetings, prayer groups, work, etc. have filled up our days.

I decided to try shrimp again with the kids. They have never been too fond of seafood but Caleb loved it. He even commented that he liked how spicy it was. This is one of my favorite dinners, spicy shrimp, couscous and sugar snap peas....delish!

Adrienne and her strawberrys, she has to poke her finger through and eat them. She was being a goof!

We had Alex and Maria over during one of the many ridiculous snow days OPS had this year. They had a blast and of course were mad when it ended!!!
Another snow day, unfortunately we live at the top of a hill and if we leave we would never get back. So we were stuck in the house a few too many days, as you can see Caleb isn't too happy to have his sister around all the time.
Our friend Jen is expecting little Springroll anyday now. This was her shower a few weeks ago. You can check out her maternity pics here.
My bro Joe played at CBTJ a few weeks ago. Adrienne lovin' on her Grandma!
It always takes Adrienne awhile to get used to people. Once she sees them again she's usually fine. So when Jody asked for a hug right when we got there, she wasn't haven't it. After the game though it was another story. She would leave Jody...too cute! (Jody is my best friend Jenny's little sister, basically my little sis)
She finally went to Michelle by the end of the night too!
P is for Penguin!

We are all back together! WOOOOOOOHOOOOO! Out celebrating Jen's 28th. We had a blast, can't wait to do it again!!

We've been doing "Muffin Tin Mondays" for the last couple months but of course keep forgetting to link them up and post pics for that matter. They love this and normally eat everything on their plate. BTW...this was for ABC's & 123's,

1 hot dog
2 cheese sticks
3 strawberries
A is for apples
B is for beans
C is for Cherry yogurt
They are quite excited when they realize it's Muffin Tin Monday

We got to go to Pump It Up with some friends, and the kids took awhile to get used to it. It took them quite awhile to be able to do them by themselves but they finally went down the slides by themselves and we cheered and cheered! I'll post a video below!

We had another playdate at Backyard Adventures...OMG so much fun! Caleb found a little friend named Claire who he has talked about ever since and Adrienne loved trying everything! We may just have to invest in one!
I rarely get my nice camera out for pics around the house or to take on play dates anymore so I whipped it out for a few shots of the kids. Many people have asked why my images are so white. Well I use all natural light and when you have 3 feet of snow to bounce off of, it's very white.

I think Caleb gains a pound or two in his cheeks in the winter...what a goof!

Adrienne was being super silly at breakfast one morning( one morning the sun was actually out!!!!) So a snapped a few of her!
