cave dwelling adventures...

the schells came to see us. we love seeing them. they arrived friday night...we had BIG plans to ice skate...
but instead watched the kids jump into the LOVEsak like 2,984 times...AND THEN
the girls +WHIT went to Zumba on saturday morning.
charlotte shook it for pretty much the whole hour!!! way to go girl!
then we headed over to PENDLs for hot cocoa, pastries, and coffee...

Back at the RANCH...the boys stripped down to their roos and harrassed anyone using the toyie (toilet)
there were lots and lots of smiles....we again had BIG ski plans..but hunkered down inside because it looked CRAZY out there...

i did manage to check on the chickens and collect the eggs...and finally Rene, Charlotte, and whitty couldn't HANDLE the CAVE dwelling any longer and we took off in the mini van to see what adventures the RED box held for us...and about 3 minutes after being the car the roads were dry...the wind still....the snow not falling....and we looked at each other BAFFLED as to what the HELL we were doing inside all day...mind you it did snow 32 total inches in 48 hours...yikes.

However there were some creative games going island hopping...even CARL the kitty joined in.
And crafts...
and baking
NOT TO MENTION the gummies consumed...and the snacks that were enjoyed.
lots of love...hugs....attempts at sharing and snuggles.
oh, and more dessert making..this one by jordy (THE LOG) x2. there was even a cream cheese poundcake (that will go un-pictured)
there was the TOSSING of the toddler.
tickling the toddler.
more toss.
oh and a bit of a dance to come of this jazzerina!
and then there was even a GOODBYE hug. So sweet.
I love love love this family. They are good people. See you this summer if not sooner seeschells.

Some things...and 18 months.

last week i got to daycare..and whitty had these in. Can you believe he sat still for this? Gloria (one of his teachers) said he wanted them...I loved it. BUT.

this weekend we did a little trim. just a little 18 month old trim.
and whitty enjoyed a sucker.
ANd there are always chickens to feed...
ANd Carl always wants to go.
And then sometimes...when someone says toyie...toyie...we go and sit on the toyie...
And do a little tinkle in there. and then we moved around some furniture for OUR MID WINTER: SPRING was nice. and guess who helped...yep, you guessed.
and then it was time to go outside to TAKE DOWN THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS...only 43 days behind...not too bad. and guess who helped.
and then maybe another try.

whittles and I weren't feeling 100% on we MADE some valentines....he mostly missed the hearts and drew directly on his placemat...but hey, he helped. WE made hearts for ALL of his teachers...and I made hearts for "MY teachers" and my students.
nothing like a paper heart.
this valentine AM around 6:19...whitty is enjoying some milk and cheese in his special outfit...a target special: "love stinks" t and some levis...dang, he's cute.
ANd when we got home...whit got his valentine's surprise...some skis...he walked around in them a bit in the living room...and said "keee" keee"...cute. videos to come.

meanwhile my hubby made me, notice the PINK cute?
AND a surprise SPA day at Teton springs...a single red rose with a singing him cheezzzy. BUt, I will keep him around. I hope whit is just like him.

oops. last weekend.

oops. forgot i loaded all these pics...and didn't publish. so this was last weekend

Friday night FAMILY skate in Victor...with live music by the Miller sisters...IT WAS SO FUN. JOrdy is a great he put whittles in the backpack...and guess who couldn't be happier to be alive....yep you guessed it.
these two joined us...don't worry...she's not texting and skating...she is at a complete STANDSTILL.
This pretty lady joined us too...and brought her little lovebug...pictured below who refused to skate at first, but later attempted to DO IT.

I coaxed this one into driving over the pass....always a treat to see her. ALWAYS!
Sunday morning usual.
and then passing out a little love for RUezy.
or a lot of love. Whittles abuses our animals...ok, not really, but he is rough with them..and Rupert takes it like a champ. I bet in a few years...they will be chasing eachother around the house...and ruezy will set up camp in his bed....i just know it.whitty in his snuggies from nuhnuh and poppa. AND yes those are grape tomatoes..he loves them...eats them as often as we let him.

I went to the thrift store Saturday...and came home with these two snags...a MINI camping chair...perfect for the house and THIS SUMMER. AND I scored these huge legos...for 9 bucks...I got a BIG 'ol basket of them...guess who loved them...he sat right down in his camping chair and wouldn't get up..he looked like an old man.
A Sunday tradition...we always do waffles ON SUNDAY unless someone is GONE or DYING. WE ALWAYS do them. THey are so yummy. This year we have been using STONEWALL brand because we got a ton of it from Ramey (jordy's sister) this year for Christmas...we love it. It's so good.

SUnday whitty helped me clean the coop...and feed the one chicken is doing better...I got them some SCRATCH to keep them busy with that and NOT pecking on EACHOTHER...and I dusted them JUST in case for mites...AND i dusted my pitiful one with helped the wound. "thanks for the website laur...

whit loves to help. he says "hel" hel" so cute.

Sundays I have been heading up to the apartment and exercising...been doing insanity if I feel like it...and whitty exerSAUCES...while I exercise.

then he wants to take a shower of course...this kid loves a shower.
and sitting in a hmmm.
