Outdoor Fun!

This family loves to be outside, no matter the conditions out there. It is so much fun to play in the snow. We got season passes at the snow tubing park right by our house (at Double J) and literally spent the day there yesterday.

This past week was busy as always. I try to get as many pictures as possible but often picking up the camera is not in the cards as I am diving to save something from falling or Dylan from getting hurt. Who needs the gym when you have a 3 year old?

Dylan LOVES playing at "Aunt" Barb's (his child care provider). We feel so lucky to have such a wonderful place for him to play while we are at work.

Okay...New Year's Resolution...#1

I am making a resolution to post at least 1 time per week on this blog (I missed week one but who is counting). I just signed in after quite some time and LOVED reading about funny things going on in our lives.

I noticed that I wrote several times about limiting Dylan's movie watching, but the kid seriously loves movies so we use them as rewards for doing great things such as using the potty. :) You gotta start somewhere with potty training. Last night he said to me, "If you want to go out there and freeze to death, go ahead. Your on your own!" I was wondering what the heck he was talking about because I hadn't said anything about going outside. He said, "Mike says that." OHHHHH Monsters Inc. Got it!

We had the most wonderful Christmas this year. Lots of time with family and friends and rest...what we needed most of all. Another one of our resolutions, B-A-L-A-N-C-E, recognize what you can do, and put your time and energy in to doing it well. We are striving to live balanced for our family to enjoy every moment.
