tattoo's and hearts...

Valentine's day is right around the corner and that means class Valentine cards. Luckily Ethan goes to a pretty small school with small class sizes so we are able to put together some great ones.

I ordered these cute cards on Amazon and they came with matching temporary tattoo's. Thankfully we have a few left over since I am a big fan. Not so much though of candy hearts, so at least we didn't have any leftovers there. Happy Valentine's Day! XOXO

and so it begins...


Ethan had his last ski lesson from school today and they got to finally go on the chairlift. He has been talking about this all season and it finally came true. 
He has been such a trooper this year since the snow conditions have been terrible and it rained during two of his lessons. But this year, he finally was excited to go which is such a breakthrough. We plan to go up again soon when we finally get some snow. But I love that I finally have a ski partner in crime. Yay Ethan!!!!

Ethan and I are all ready for the big game. Lucky for Jeff, he gets to be there in person but we'll be having a couple friends over and screaming from our couch at home eating our Skittles. Ethan's already claimed dibs on the Super Bowl ring cupcake. Let's do this hawks!

warm weather...

We've  been having some very warm weather recently which has resulted in enjoying the great outdoors of the Pacific northeast. Hope that this weather continues a little longer.

hitting the slopes...

Last year around this time, I tried to go skiing and my dad ended up getting sick and I ended up getting sick. Since I am the only one in my immediate family that ski's (Ethan is slated to take lessons this winter) I end up driving up north and going with my dad to Mt. Baker.

I was not going to let another year go by where I did not make it up and even though they did not have a ton of snow, we still had a great time. The sun was out, and it was really cold, but the snow conditions were great that day. My ski boots, not so much. I mean who bruises both of their big toe nails on the same day?
