Extreme Sledding

Mom had a great idea that she would build a slide that went down the stairs of the deck. 
Dadda and Uncle Mike had a much better idea. Build a much bigger slide! 

 Really Mom? What do you think we are??

Amelia at the top of the summit.

The over protective Mom says "I think we should buckle her in"

First attempt was a success!!

Emma was up next.


Let's look at that face in an instant replay, love it!!

Waving to the fans.

Planning her next run.

Dadda catching us at the bottom of the hill.

A very happy eskimo.

Can we do this everyday?

Happy Birthday Uncle Joey!!

Happy Birthday to our Uncle Joey!! He is so funny, generous, and loves to be around us... 
well except for when we have a dirty diaper - then he is the first one out of the room!!

 We party together.

Go to Uconn games together.

Love you lots UJ!!

Snow khaki's

 But I want to go play on the slide (sad lip)

How do you say no to this?

You don't.

Daddy, that wasn't as fun as normal

Can we walk down to the woods?

Not today, lets go back to momma.

Dad, you look cold. I can't believe your khaki's didn't keep you warm.

Note to self: when mom tells you to put on snow pants it's probably a good idea :)

Snow Castles in the Snow

Beach toys repurposed. 

Filling up the bucket.

 All the way to the top!

 Making a snow castle and immediately destroying it!

Ahh, snow castles make me happy!!

Yeah Amelia, snow castles make me happy too, but eating it is way better!!

So much snow!

Storm Nemo left so much snow it came up to our foreheads! 
And in some places it was up over our heads!

This year we made butterfly valentines! 
Each one has beautiful glittery wings that we made all by ourselves!

Emma admiring her work.

Girls, what do butterfly's do? "FLY!"

 Pretty purple butterfly.

A taste test was a must... we wouldn't want to give out bad pops!

Two little loves

Happy Valentine's Day to all our favorites :)

A valentine with animal crackers in it... lame Mom, where's the chocolate?

Ma, do you think I need to start tweezing my unibrows?

Valentine's Day smooch.

Cookie Monsters

On our first snow day, Mom thought it would be a great idea to make 
Valentine's Day cookies. 

  Yay, we are so excited!!

Rolling the cookies.

Loving the cookies.

Tasting the cookies.... before they are baked.

 Very sad after mom told us we can't eat raw cookie dough.

The tasted cookie.

 Putting the cookies into the oven.

But why did we have to put them in the oven?

And now we have to watch them get cooked alive??

Oh, my poor cookie friends.

Phew, a happy girl eating cookies!

They are pretty tasty.

Valentine's Day Necklaces

So happy with her necklace!

 Why so serious?

 Little hand holding little beads.

 I feel too constrained with a paper plate, new plan - let's dump the beads all over the table!

Two good lookin' babes... will you be our valentine?

Don't be fooled by these photos, sometimes craft projects don't go exactly as planned. It was more about putting the beads on and taking them off. No actual final project was produced.
