Much to our overwhelming joy, we awoke this morning to 8 inches of snow while it continued to come down! Sure enough, dad got his first university snow day! So out we went to enjoy the wonderful chilly morning! It snowed two more inches while we were out there and it is still coming down! After naptime, we're headed back out!
Ellie's just a little too lazy to ride in this sled by herself...

We spent the weekend with Ben's family celebrating his mom's mom's birthday! She is such a wonderful lady- we love her!
Dad, Mendy (cousin), and Sam
Aunts Kay & LuJean, Uncle Blaine, Diane (cousin), Grandma, Alice & Daughter (Grandma's brother's daughter & granddaughter)
Jason (cousin), Yours Truly, Ellie Shquinkle, and Shelby (1st cousin once removed)
Grandma and her cousin- aren't they so sweet!?! Grandma is about 5'2" just for reference

So I have a tradition that for my babies first birthdays, I make them an extravagant cake to demolish. Brook's was so... amazing. A mini three-tiered cake. I just about cry when I think that the pictures and video we got of it were lost forever on a crashing hard drive. There may be some hope, but it is slim. Anywho- Ellie's turned out pretty good as well. Not as fun, but still fun.
For the butterflies, I followed this tutorial

Ellie with her Aunt Jen-she ADORES Aunt Jen- Mom is pretty much dog food in comparison. Brook feels the same.
This torture doesn't seem to be effective...
Dang right we built it!
Look Mom! He can spell my name!

Sheesh, these prices are steep! How about a friends and family discount??
Shameless plug: If you live in the Boise area, I've been informed by a very reliable source that their annual membership fee, which is $50, will be $15 off starting December 1st. That's $35 for an ANNUAL membership- which means free admission ANY TIME for your entire immediate family for a year, including a fun activity time for 3-5 year olds (or round about there) and 15% off in their fun store, plus other benefits I'm sure. Check it out (after December 1st of course)!
