Getting the kids to keep their rooms (somewhat) clean is a constant for us. Today Tegan’s room was what’s referred as a ‘disaster pit.’ I asked her to clean it up and two minutes later she comes out saying she’s done.
Uh huh. So it’s to be the old, behind the door trick, eh? No no, I said, clean it for real.
For the most part, it’s been a pretty disappointing winter. You know this is so when people start talking about spring skiing when winter never really started.
Anywhoo, it has been warm enough to think about going to the park. We met up with Heather, Josh, and Serisa at Willow Creek park for some park time and sledding. It was a pretty nice afternoon. Watching the kids go off the jump was pretty funny. Glad they always came up smiling.
While we thought it took a long time to get to Tory’s first haircut, it was over three years until Tegan’s. But she’s a girl so it’s different, and she’s got her mom’s awesome thickness too. Not much was taken off so you can hardly tell, but apparently doing this makes hair healthy.
Tory got a quick trim too. Judging from the results, it’s time I stopped cutting it for him and let the pros do what the pros do. I should probably stop cutting my own hair too.
Bowling was all the rage for this years Tory and Tegan Birthday Week™. Tonight we went to Jupiter Bowl in Park City. Josh, Heather, and Serisa showed, as did Sam and Sophia. Jarrett and Mel were there, and Uncle Nate too.
We’re still holding combo parties for Tory and Tegan’s birthdays. At least until they scream uncle about it. This year we headed down to Heber City’s Holiday Lanes for a little bowling session. Gutterballs and $2 everything ruled the night ($2 shoes, $2 games, $2 food). Lot’s of friends showed up, and I only got these few crappy shots to show for it. Sorry ya’ll.
Tory and Tegan had a lot of fun, and are very thankful for all their friends coming and for the awesome gifts!
Very excited to post this about Tegan skiing on her own for the first time. Top to bottom on High Meadow all by herself. She’ll turn three in a week, but technically, she’s skiing on her own at two. My little girl.
It’s becoming somewhat of a tradition in our family to make sugar cookies for Christmas and let the kids paint them up. Tradition as in, this is the second year in a row we’ve done it. Sugar cookies happen to be my most favorite Christmas cookie so I can see this continuing.
The kids had fun with the frosting, and especially the sprinkles. There were as many on the floor as there were on cookies :)
