Birthday Calendar

I made these birthday calendars for my parents and parents-in-law for christmas.
Each person has their own page.
It was a fun project. The hardest part was finding pictures of everyone.

Pirate Island

Anyone want a fun place to take their family out to dinner? We went to Pirate Island over the christmas break. My brother recently got a job there. It was a lot of fun. The decor was awesome and there were some really fun photo spots. There is an arcade, a play area, and the whole restraunt looks like a pirate cave.There was a functional organ in the room we ate in. It looked like it came right off a pirate ship.
The kids had fun playing the games and playing with cousins.
Aaron and Kiersten posed in front of a treasure chest. Kiersten loved the pink diamond.
Faith counting the coins.
Robert and Jenn. Rob was our server.
Katrina loved this ride.
Besides my own family, my parents, grandma, my sister and her family and some of my cousins were there.
Kiersten loved the Zebra.
This tree was near the entrance. Here are my 4 girls and their cousin Lila.

Sledding





I took the kids over to the Jr high to go sledding. The snow was wet and slushy. The kids got wet fast. They loved sliding down the hill and playing in the snow.
Katrina got cold, and did not want to keep gloves on. She walked through a puddle of cold water a few times and we had to take off her shoes and put gloves on her feet. She soaked those too.

Hot chocolate is a must when we go sledding.
John and Logan building in the snow.
Faith dug out a small cave. Lila liked walking through the puddles.
Jenn sledding down the hill.

Kiersten went down several times. She loved it.
