Home from vacation!

The last 3 weeks have been a whirlwind at our house! I can't wait to get all of my pictures uploaded. We ended January with Jordyn having strep throat -- that was a new one for us! Our kids have never had it. Thankfully, she was the only one to get it. And considering that amount of sickness that is going around the schools, one case of strep throat seemed like nothing compared to all of the Influenza A, Influenza B, stomach flu ...

I blinked and February is almost over. Justin has been in Rapid City and Bismark for work trips, I had three nights of conferences (thankful that Jade and Megan helped out with the kids while Justin was gone), GEMS and Bible Study ... and we just got home from 6 great days in Cancun! (So thankful for our parents being willing to watch our kids!) Justin is home for a few days, and then heads to Minneapolis for meetings.

Until I have my pictures ready, here's one of the beautiful sunrises from our vacation. :)

Jaxon worked so hard on his Valentines for his friends. :)

Jax and Justin also worked hard on his Ninjago Valentine Box!

Justin took Jax to see the new Batman Leg movie ... look who was there!

100 Days Smarter!

Jayla is 100 days smarter! Last week they celebrated the 100th day of school by swimming for 100 minutes and dressing like a 100-year old!
(Thanks Grandma Marcia for the help!)

More pictures :)

The weather has been a little nicer, and the kids have even had their bikes out a few times!

Cotton candy at Kravn! (Jayla was at a birthday party.)

And why not top off sugar with more sugar in orange soda? :) We were celebrating a great week!

Such a cutie!

Dressed for church!

Buddy needed breakfast too!

Jordyn ~ Last Basketball Games!

Jordyn's basketball team finished up their season last weekend. They lost their first game and won their second game.

I have loved watching the girls play ... as much as I enjoy a few "free" Saturdays, I will miss being at basketball games! (Jayla has 2 games yet, but they had a four week break, so she doesn't play again for a while.)

We celebrated after at Juice Stop after the games!

And then we decided to surprise Zach at his game! Jordyn enjoyed watching her classmates play.

This kid has sure been a trooper ... he sits through many games, and still has that sweet smile on his face.

Just a few more pictures from the last couple of weeks ...

Cup stacking at it's finest. :)

A couple of nighttime snaps with the girls ...

I was pretending I was already on vacation when we ate at Chili's the other night. :)

Playing on the lake!

The weather was perfect on Sunday morning for playing outside on the lake! We were all hot and were taking off our jackets!

Jax was pretending to be Frosty ...

Silly string!

Justin and I walked across the lake and back ... little different than paddle boarding across the lake. :)

Grandpa was busy building chairs!

Grandma and Daddy were busy buildling a snowman ...
