Maybe I should have stayed asleep in the chair!

Pictures of David

Here are two pictures I took of David's smiles this morning.


I took some of the kids to Baudette to go sledding behind Willie Walleye. It's not a big hill, but it's big enough to have fun seeing who can "set the record" by going the farthest. Of course, we always have to try to snowboard on a sled also. :)

Laura got cold so I turned the van on and stuck her inside it for a while. I was minding my own business when suddenly I heard, "Click-swish." It was a sinking feeling in my stomach because I hadn't popped the trunk open. She had locked herself in! After a lot of coaxing and encouraging and playing "Push the button again," I was able to get her to unroll the window enough that I could get my arm in. Whew!!!!! You'd think I'd learn to have some caution after having so many kids... :)

Valentine's Day 2010

A friend invited us to her house for a Valentine's Day party. The kids got to decorate cookies and cupcakes and even add their touch to a huge cupcake. Overall, I think ALL of the kids had fun. If I counted correctly, there were 18 children there! :) Here are a few pictures of the process and the end results.
We made these candy cane hearts for eight of our special friends. I bought enough for our kids to have one also, but the packets of candy I bought didn't have enough in them so we'll do ours after another trip to the store.
