New Years at the Cabin...

We went up to the cabin for New Years this year with Todd's sister Katie and her family. We all had a great time--except for half of our kids getting sick (and both of Karin's kids we were babysitting!). There was a little snow left, even though it was more like ice, the kids had a good time slipping around in it. It is so funny when you bring a kid to the snow who has been in Arizona most of their life. They go outside, half clothed, no gloves on, and tennis shoes, but happy as can be to go play in the snow. 10 minutes later they come back in, crying, hands frozen, nose frozen, feet frozen, and miserable as can be. Warm them up, and they are off again--so funny! I for one am SO glad to not live in the snow--it's so much work to get all of those clothes on and off 3 or 4 times a day! The snow is fun to visit--too cold to live in!







Poor baby, his hands were freezing (he took off his mittens...)

Emie wrote her name in the snow--much cleaner than the way the boys do it...

New Years Eve was tons of fun--in fact I think I spent pretty much the whole day on this couch watching football--can you tell by the way I look! Love those lazy days at the cabin! This was at midnight...





The next night while the adults were at dinner, the older girls made brownies--little Jack LOVED the brownie batter! They gave him the whole bowl!




Stosh wasn't feeling well, so he loved sitting by the fireplace...


This was a great game of "catch the blue gorilla"...the boys have fun catching just about anything!




We saw lots of deer, right by the cabin, I managed to get a picture of this big guy who was scratching his antlers on a tree right outside the kitchen window!



Poor Stosh was SO sick, and coughing so hard. Luckily, I had borrowed Katie's breathing machine and I still had medicine from Jack having pnemonia a few weeks ago, so we could give him breathing treatments. He was so cute, he would be sitting there doing a treatment, and you smile at him and he would take off the mask and smile back so big. What a trooper. He ended up going home on Sunday with Katie and Shaun, and having Uncle Greg check him out--he had double ear infections! We got home and found out that Jack and Stacia had them as well! Poor little guys! They are feeling much better now...




~HAPPY NEW YEAR~2010 WILL BE AWESOME!
