Phil says I speak 'Heatherish' sometimes. 
Made up words that he understands because he knows me so well.

This post I called Heatherish because it's just me stuff. 

I made this curtain below to hide our junk toys on the bookshelf.

That blur is Ali, nice.

I love to work on jigsaw puzzles.. and take pictures when I'm done.

I like to cook good tasty food.

Homemade buns, yum!

Fresh pomegranate in my cereal. Yum!

Little snacks - banana slices, peanut butter, raisins, cherry on top.  Yum!

inside fun

We know how to have fun inside too. 

Here's what we've been up to to beat the winter blues.

inflatable (indoor) park
 bath time 
 hanging out in our stocking hats
diapering a robot toy
 climbing stairs at the library
 wondering around aimlessly
 with 'fancy' necklaces
 climbing up and down stairs at home
 school projects
 student of the week
 lots of snuggle time under the blanket

Enjoyed our winter but ready for spring and fresh air!!

playing in the cold

Our kids love to play outside rain, shine, or snow.  Except Alveda, she was a bit of a fuddy duddy with the cold but once it's warm out she wants to be outside. I've had to stop her a few times as she loves walking around the block.  It's just tough when the sidewalk is icy.  Sledding, snow forts, snowmen, snowball fights, hide and seek, shoveling, iceskating... they love it all. And I do to, I just couldn't be out as much as I had to stay in with Alveda.. but next year...we'll all turn to the snowHunt's!

selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often associated with social networking. They are often casual, are typically taken either with a camera held at arm's length or in a mirror, and typically include either only the photographer or the photographer and as many people as can be in focus. Selfies taken that involve multiple people are known as "group selfies".


Wikipedia actually has a nice article on the topic if you have time browse.

Phil reports that 'selfie' is a new word being 
added our American dictionary.

To mark this momentous occasion, I dedicate to some 'selfies'.

snow shoeing

Hartman Reserve had a snow shoe night so Phil and I took Harlie and Wendell snowshoeing for the first time.  We weren't sure how it would go but they did great!  Harlie fell a lot as she was learning how to use them and Wendell was able to handle them quite well.  I didn't think about it being dark and they might get scared but they did pretty well.

I kind of wonder if I could make my own.... kind of like basket weaving?

 There was fun inside as well.

Both kids requested we take their picture.

Nice face Harlie!

We attempted to get a family picture and this is the best we could do.. sorry Wendell!

Wendell and Phil did a second loop but Harlie wanted to be done after the first one.  So we went inside playing games at the tables and ate popcorn.

A fun night!  I hope to snow shoe some more.. and will be more excited when all of us can do it, maybe in a few years.
