"The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences." - Eleanor Roosevelt

My niece, Piper, and I both have birthdays in February so we all traveled to Nana and Gramps' house this weekend to celebrate!

The guys had lots of fun playing darts and pool with Dad and Gramps!

Here's Conner trying on Gramps' old motorcycle helmet!

And then, of course, Ben needed a turn with it!  Thank you to Nana and Gramps for a fantastic weekend!  It was so much fun!  The boys were a little upset that we had to come home just to go to school on Monday!  Great weekend!!!

To "Doh" or Not To "Doh!"

Time for some Play-Doh!  It's one of the best activities for the boys because it keeps them busy and they seldom fight or argue!  The clean up takes so much time, though, that I often wonder if it's worth it!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  The boys had their friendship party at school on Thursday, so they came home with a box full of valentines.  They also made the cutest Valentine cards for us!  The little boys and I have a 4 day weekend with no school yesterday on Friday and no school on Monday, so we are pretty excited!

Ben and Conner got a delivery of their own today!  Nana and Gramps left them some Valentine cards and cookies on the front porch, so they thought that was pretty cool after school!

Today is my birthday!  My guys helped me celebrate with some presents, deliveries at work, and out to dinner tonight! It was a wonderful day!

I gave Ben and Conner ponytails tonight to prove to them that their hair is getting a little too long and it will soon be haircut time!  It may have backfired though since they liked the "ponytails" so much!  (Nick was not impressed!)

Snow Day #2!

After getting almost a  foot of snow yesterday, it was no surprise when we heard that Monday would be a snow day for us!  No School!  Ben and Conner got themselves dressed and decided that they needed to have their phones on them at all times in case someone needed to get a hold of them!  We spent the day doing all kinds of activities inside, my favorite being hanging out together, giggling, and snapping pictures of us!

The boys are ready to brave the snow and the wind to get the driveway cleared!  I think the total ended up being around 10 inches!!!
