Happy Birthday Grandma Turek

Today is my mom's birthday. Tiff and I have been brainstorming of what we can do for her birthday to celebrate. We talked about going out to lunch or dinner with just the girls but then Tiff reminded me that my mom and dad are on some stinking diet and eating out would not be one of the best ideas because of what she CANNOT EAT!! So, Tiff came up with a brilliant plan which I hope to post pictures and the event when the day is done. Stay tuned for a physically challenging activity that even a grandma can do. It's gunna be FUN!!
ok so I'm not the best photographer but I think the pictures will say it all.

It took a little convincing to get them on their bikes

This isn't everyone but the most we could get to hold still for a picture

One picture I am missing is Tiffani's truck LOADED with bikes.

(Four adult bikes, four kids bikes and one bike trailor!)
And, YES! my mom and dad are still walking and speaking to us!

So I learned a couple new things today and I'm actually just posting to test my knowledge. This morning I went to my neighbors house (Monique) and learned how to make some cute flowers to decorate or make hair clips or even put them on the camp quilt I'm making for Julia. It was fun to learn something new that I can actually do!
The other new thing is this link business where you can check out what I'm talking about just by clicking on someone's name. I see it done all the time but NOW I know how (and Rayn was right, it is easy.)
So here's a new business that my little sister has just started up and running that I thought some of you might be interested in. Kandice is super talented and has made cute things for your girlies at what I think is pretty affordable. Check out How Adorabow you think it is. I'm getting Julia one of those cute knitted beanies...just can't decide which color yet.

Snow Much Fun!

New Year's Day we went to the Coral Pink Sand Dunes and played in the white dunes of snow. It was so fun and I'm suprised the kids lasted as long as they did. Makes a difference when they have good clothes and shoes and can stay dry.

After playing in the snow for a few hours and eating hot soup drinking hot chocolate and snacking on goodies and bran muffins (yup! They make you regular. Julia had a couple!) we called it a day.

playing in the snow really takes it out of you...

On the way home Kory's truck lost power so we all pulled over (it was a caravan as follows: Tiff's family, My family, Jeff's Family and Randy's bringing up the rear). He thought he had it fixed for a moment so we drove a ways farther. Then he pulled off just before going down the hill into Hurricane. We hitched up the tow rope and made it all the way home safely.

ready to roll again

I'm looking forward to more fun in the cold before it thaws out. I'm thinking there's going to be an ice fishing trip soon...wanna come?
