Bowling

We went bowling recently for the second time in two weeks.  I didn’t blog the first time because I forgot my camera… of course, that’s when I bowled a 212, which is about 60 pins better than my previous best.  Both times we went with our friends, Naveen and Ajitha.  Naveen, Warren, and a few guys from work bowl occasionally over lunch.  Ajitha just came from India to the states with Naveen a few months ago right after their wedding there, and we both met her for the first time on our first bowling trip.  She’s very sweet (and won the boys over quite quickly by bringing chocolates for them).
I’m just getting to know them.  They’re a sweet couple and we look forward to bowling with them some more.
Ethan and Isaac have enjoyed the bowling experience. It’s fun for them for about one game and they’re happy to be finished after that. The balls are still quite heavy for Isaac and they tire him out.  After several struggles to get the eight pound ball down the lane, he managed to develop his own system of running and “throwing” which is quite cute and hard to describe.

Little Mat Rat

Lincoln started his very first class at the YMCA. He’s officially a mat rat and loves it! He especially enjoyed jumping into the pit full of foam blocks. He has always been so agile and good on his feet, I thought this would be a great outlet for his climbing/swinging needs during the snowy, cold weather we have been having.

I’m pretty sure we’ll have snow until June!

We got our big snow of the season! Warren and the boys shoveled the driveway and put each shovel load into one big pile creating a snow mountain. It has provided lots of entertainment for our boys and some of the neighbor kids too. I’m sure we will be the last house in the cul-de-sac with snow in our yard.

Soon, Warren won’t need to be shoveling at all!
Austin, Halle, and Isaac
Silly boys!
“Weee!!!”
King of the mountain!
The boys were thrilled with their snow days! Ethan got two days off and Isaac got three days off due to a 2-hour delay with no AM Kindergarten. School tomorrow and then a 3-day-weekend!

Sweet Treat

Baking and decorating Valentine cupcakes was the perfect after-lunch activity during the boys snow day.

Neighbor Halle joined in the fun!

100 Days of School!

In honor of the 100th day of school I made Ethan and Isaac a special brownie dessert. While I was asking the boys about their 100th school day, Isaac said, “I like school now!” It only took 100 days…

I’m Famous! (Sort of)

My name is proudly hanging on the wall in Qdoba! We made the top 25 most loyal costumer list for 2009. Our family was invited to celebrate during the top-loyalty costumer celebration. We all ate for free, received a water bottle full of candy, got our picture taken, and had candles burning on our table! We love our Qdoba and eat there every Sunday afternoon.
