Snow Day

With the limited amount of snow we've gotten this winter we decided to take advantage of the little snow we received this morning and declare it a snow day.  Fischer loved it. 

Fischer loved being pulled around in the sled.

"faster Daddy, faster!"

As you can see he was enjoying himself.
 We learned that our driveway has just enough of a slope to make it the perfect sledding hill.
Eventually we wised up and realized why where ourselves out when we have two dogs that can do it for us.

Mush! Doggies Mush!

Potty Training

This weekend we decided to tackle the potty training.  Fischer has been doing okay.  He will go potty if we put him on the toilet but he still hasn't gotten to the point where he will take himself or tell us he needs to go.  It's exhausting trying to potty train a two year old but in the end it will be worth it.

I love Valentine's Day.   I love that it allows me time to reflect on all the things I love about people.   It also gives me the excuse to be extra lovey and do things that I may not normally think to do.  Valentine's is one of my favorite holidays.  I have very fond memories of it.  Even as a single lady my friends and I celebrated this holiday with pride (we referred it to Single Awareness Day back then).  It was still fun.  This year I wanted to bring a little Valentine's into my home.  It isn't much but enough to remind me of this fun heart shaped holiday.

These are some Valentine's I made for Fischer to take to Daycare.  They're Tootsie pop flowers.  On the leaf it says, "If Valentine's were flowers I'd pick you."

Fish Lake

Last month our family got together with my sister's family and we all went ice fishing at Fish Lake.  It was alot of fun.  I'm grateful for family that I get to do stuff with.  The kids had a blast.  Fischer hooked his first fish (unfortunately it fell off as we were trying to bring it through the ice).  Here are some pictures from the trip.
First catch of the day.

In the cabin we stayed at was this loft.  The kids loved playing up there.

Hunter was so nice to read to Fischer.  Fischer really looks up to him and Hunter is so good to always include him in everything he does.
