The house is decorated and class Valentines are done, we are definitely getting excited for Valentine's Day! We took a trip to Wyoming and then got stuck there with a crazy storm that closed the roads, and to help pass the time we took the kids swimming. It was so fun because I got to test out my new phone that can go underwater. Seriously it was sooooo cool! I had so much fun swimming AND taking pictures at the same time! :) Dreamy!

For a school project they had to decorate spoons to look like people
Brrrrrr! January has been freezing and the snow keeps coming! Carter got his first buzzcut haircut to match Daniel this week. Monroe has been fighting croup and Elise has been loving her piano lessons. Enjoy a few pics :)
This fashionista is all ready to walk to school on a snowy day
We got over a foot of snow again
Our candy canes which are frozen in the ground are all the way covered with snow
Carter before (selfie taken by him)
He felt fancy getting his hair washed
And after....ahhhh so short! But he loves it, I am still partial to some spike :) Ya know the eternal Jake Ryan look.
Monroe's first time riding in a driving cart and Carter is probably too big for it, but oh well
She LOVED it!
I don't talk about this stuff much because I hate it when people sound braggy or preachy, but I have been on a healthy eating and exercising kick since last October. Here are some ingredients for a veggie omelet. And yes sadly I am now becoming someone who takes pictures of her food, lol
Carter loves a spinach smoothie, score!

Looking sharp for church
Then a few days later Monroe got croup
After a trip to the doctor and some steroids she started doing much better
Lunch Date with Mommy and Poppa once she was all better
Welcome to January! It has pretty much been snowing every day and we have been busy with everybody back in school. The New Year seems like a good time to give you some updates on the kiddos. Elise went to her "It's Great to Be Eight" activity this past week. She is getting so excited to turn 8 this summer and get baptized. She also started piano lessons this week. I really hope she picks it up easily. I believe it will help her with everything musical in her future, which is helpful because she has informed us that she wants to be a pop star. Carter has been writing and drawing so much better then he could when he started kindergarten, it's awesome to see how much he is growing. He also loves to cook and he is obsessed with all things Star Wars lately. Monroe is becoming a busy busy girl. She helps me unload the dishwasher and loves to take the books of Elise's bookshelf. She is starting to climb and has added a new dance move where she moves her shoulders up and down, it's adorable. Lastly, she does this silly thing where she can roll her eyes (I promise it is cute). And with that here are some pictures from this week. Enjoy :)

I actually got a Girls Night Out! It was awesome!
