Zoe Skis

Photobucket

My baby can ski...
She has been talking about trying it for a while now (with any luck we will get some snow this week so we can try again).

She got lots of encouragement from big brother Sage

and Grace was her biggest cheerleader!

Can she really be old enough for skiing, without holding on to Papa and Dad?

My baby is growing up and it makes me a little sad. She was invited to a Dora Carnival birthday party the other day. She was so excited to go and I was a little nervous. It was so strange to drop her off and leave to take the other kids to tumbling...I just kept telling them how weird it was not to have Zoe.

I realized it was one of those milestone moments, my baby didn't need me (sigh).

Don't grow up too fast baby girl, you will always be my baby!

Happy New Year

Photobucket

We celebrated the New Year with a party on the eve of the new year with JJ's family. It was great fun to get together, play games and stay up way too late (Sage and Grace made it past midnight).

We went ice skating New Year's Day with family and friends...

Photobucket

Sage was a natural, even Grace and Zoe tried it...JJ did not love it!

It felt great to get out in the sunshine after a long vacation indoors.

We made it through the first day back to reality with work and school, homework and everything non-vacation means. I am surprised to say that I was NOT ready for my kids to go back to school, I had the best vacation and loved every moment of hanging out with my kids and JJ.

On another note, JJ gave me and himself new iPhones for Christmas, the 4S to be exact, I am falling in love with apple all over again. Siri (the "answer" lady in the phone) does not however like me very much, she seems partial to JJ and answers all of his questions with no trouble, I will work on winning her over.

But, the pics I took ice skating were with my new phone...while they not the best, they are MUCH better than my old phone photos...it's nice to have the capability.

Happy New Year to our family and friends...we wish you a wonderful new year!
