Snow Day

We went up to Mount Charleston after there was a good snow fall. The kids had gotten some snow sleds for Christmas and wanted to try them out. It was really fun and the snow was perfectly powdery. The only downside is that we don't have the proper snow attire, so after about 10 minutes, the girls were melting down because their hands were freezing and their pants were wet and their toes were turning to ice. The boys were in heaven. They had a blast. Little Aideen loved it too and she even tried eating some snow.

Lucas is 33

Lucas was 33 on January 28. He got some workout shirts and some cologne. The kids were excited to wake him up and sing Happy Birthday. After the kids went to school, we dropped Isla and Aideen off to at my friend's house and Lucas and I went for a little date. We had Zabas Mexican and then we went to some athletic stores and Lucas picked up 2 baseball caps. Lucas and I embarqued on a pact of 100 days without sugar that started January 1. Lucas was a trooper and decided he wouldn't have any cake for his birthday. We bought some cupcakes for the kids and Lucas blew out the candles. It was a great birthday. I am so lucky to have this wonderful man as my love and partner for life. He is such a great dad and such a hard worker for our family. People may not believe it, but he is rarely moody. He is so cheerful and positive and he loves to make us laugh. Anyone who is lucky enough to know him, can't help but love him. I am the luckiest of all.

Aideen at 9 months

Aideen was not feeling so great for this picture in the wingback chair. This is the first time she has been sick. She had an ear infection and I didn't even know it because she was her usual chipper self. She is so easy going, most of the time. She has a great appetite and loves most of the baby food I offer to her. She sleeps great and is finally moving. She has decided she would rather roll to get to where she wants than to crawl the traditional way. It works for her and she is pretty fast. She loves this new found freedom and we have to be quick because she loves getting into cupboards and pulling on the end of the blinds. Her hair is getting longer and I managed to get a little ponytail on top. She got her toenails painted for the first time and even at some snow when we took a little trip up Mount Charleston. She's growing so fast.  We love our lil puddin so much.
