Winter Get Away

We went on our annual waterpark winter getaway this weekend.  This year we went back to the Three Bears Waterpark.  The kids had a blast.  William went down the superfast body slide all by himself this year!  Isabella was able to go down the red slide by herself and Catriana enjoyed watching everyone, but wasn't too into participating.  She did enjoy riding the red slide on mommy or daddy's lap, but found the water too cold for the most part.  Her favorite was splashing in the Cub Tub (giant hot tub).  And the water seemed exceptionally chilly this year, so the Cub Tub was momma's favorite spot too!

No one got much sleep, but despite lack of night time sleep and missed daytime naps all the kids were pretty well behaved. 

My 3 sillies ready for some fun!!

Cate's picked out her bed

My Sweet Boy

My Sweet 6 yr old made valentines for all his friends and family, including the dogs.  He put it in the window so Beastie would be sure to see it from outside.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

The kids are doing their first ever Valentine's party tomorrow with some other local homeschool families.  We're planning on exchanging Valentine's, having a snack, craft and game.   So this week we've been busy making our boxes and valentine's for our friends.  I chose to make the snack, so the kids and I got ready for that today too.

Mommy's Kitchen Helper

Cate just loves to "help" me unload the dishwasher



Baby Mullett

Well Cate's hair is coming in thick in the back and sparse on the sides.  And so far it looks like she's going to have straight hair.

Catriana Loves Dogs

I've said it before, Catriana just absolutely adores dogs!!!  She said "dog" and "woof woof" before she ever said "mama".

Light Sticks are Fun!

Great Aunt Kathy got the kids a package of light sticks at Christmas and so we turned off all the lights in the living room and had a light party the other night.  The kids had a blast!  Even Cate got into it.  A great media-free fun family activity.
