She has hair! Long enough for pigtails! Half the time she rips out the elastics before we even make it to the car, but it's so fun!

Me with some girls from my soccer team. I love playing indoor!

We tried out a new fun jumping place. Brooke was a fan.

Rhys LOVES holding Rosie!

Parker finished up with his indoor soccer. He can't wait to play with some of these kids in the spring!

The boys are SO proud of their books that they wrote and illustrated.

Every once in awhile, we have to make and ice sugar cookies. It's a big deal for these kids! 

Another ski trip means lots of games for the condo!

Rhys decided this box would be his bed one night. I don't think he lasted more than a few hours!

Skiing with friends!

The snow sculptures were on display - they were amazing!

Beautiful view of the ski area.

Parker made a Valentine for himself. I laughed pretty hard :)

We decided to make snow ice cream for dessert one night and it was surprisingly good! And easy! This picture pretty much epitomizes her life. "Oh Brooke, do you want my sucker? Here you go!". So spoiled.

Homemade mac 'n cheese for a snack. These boys are eating me out of house and home!

Remember what I said about spoiled? These boys call her "Queen Brooke" and that's pretty much how she is treated at all times.

We took the older boys to Cinderella and I think it is one of my favorite shows we've been to! They loved it!

Running in the field on a beautiful day!

Parker's primary class. Mom, notice that scripture case??

More fun at the park!

I sometimes forget that we are at high altitude. And that it's February. Sunburn!

We have been doing an art/music swap class with an artist friend of mine. This month we took a trip to the museum and the kids loved it!

This picture cracks me up. Brooke thinks she is a part of the action and Rhys LOVES to be included by his older brothers. This makes my heart happy!

This is where Brooke hangs out during Landon's basketball games. LOCKERS!!

Parker doing sit ups before his last game.

Queen Brooke's loyal subjects have revolted at the stench of a poopy diaper. Sad day...haha.

Hump Month

My brother Bryson is on a mission in CA. We took some pictures to celebrate his one year mark!

Parker at soccer and Landon at basketball (dribbling in the background):

Bryson's favorite place!
Scott and I went to "Forbidden Broadway" with some friends. We love going to shows...and getting Coldstone afterwards.

Brooke and her favorite baby, Charlie.

All of my kids. Sometimes I really can't believe I have four kids!? What!??!?

Brooke is so girl. She couldn't care less about cars or trucks, she just wants to carry around babies. And cook in the play kitchen. It's hilarious to see that she gravitates towards those things even in a house full of boy stuff!

Landon is learning to sew! He helped make this stuffed animal sleeping bag for a friend's birthday party. We then had to make one for each kid in our family...they were just that cool.

Loving our warm January days!!

Coloring while naked is just the best.

Park days!

Having a pizza cup snack at the Butterfly Pavilion. My mom gave me this idea to put pizza dough in a muffin tin, fill with sauce and cheese, bake and freeze. It has been so great for fast, mess free lunches!

Brooke LOVES animals. I can't wait to start taking her to the zoo when it warms up for good!

Last Day in AZ and HOME!

We visited the science museum in Phoenix - it was awesome!! The bed of nails was a huge hit:

Back in CO, we were loving the snow! Ski angels:

 While the boys were skiing, Rhys, Brooke, and I hit their favorite play place.

Beautiful Boulder sunset:

More bouncy fun!

All the boys love this little girl - she isn't lacking for playtime!

More chocolate please, Mom!

Rhys went through about two weeks where he slept like this - on our floor - every night. So funny!

Somehow I got pink eye!? None of the other kids got it - so strange.

Children's museum! Brooke is getting old enough that it is SO fun for her!

The boys have adopted the top of this wall as their personal club house. I think it's so fun!

They still love to bake and are getting really good at it!
