Valentine's Day

Ashton enjoying his candy
Happy teenager and tweenager
Chocolate covered oreo pops and strawberries!

 We had a nice and sugary Valentine's Day here with lots of chocolate and cheesecakes!  The boys each got a pack of candy and a personal note from us and then I made cinnamon rolls for breakfast. We got a nice 4 day weekend to recover from our sugar comas.  :)
Cameron added some candy to his cinnamon roll

Can you see the heart in the tree branches?


Where's my bowling ball?

We took the gang bowling last weekend!  Very fun!

Busy homework week.....

Hedgehog report - we created pom-pom hedgehogs for decoration

He made Grandma Bonnie's recipe
 We had such a crazy week for school work!  Ashton had a animal report that included six pages of information and Ethan needed to do some cooking for his class at school.  Thankfully, Cameron had a lighter week, homework-wise!  Ashton and I headed out for ice cream to celebrate his hard work, and we all enjoyed Ethan's meatballs!

Phew!  Shamrock shake was well earned

Visit to Apple Valley

 Last weekend, we headed to Apple Valley to spend time with Mom and Dad, as well as Aunt Sonja from KC and Cousin Wilma from Minnesota.  We spent time around the table listening to lots of stories, taking it all in.  At one point, Ethan showed Aunt Sonja how to create music with the ipad!

Bike Ride

The weather has been so nice here.  It's hard to know if we're in winter or not.  The boys were encourage to take advantage of it so Cameron and Ashton headed out for a quick ride.
