We are homeschooling now through a virtual school and they had a field trip today to the ice rink. I was a little uncomfortable with the idea, roller skating did not go very well. I am here to tell you that ice skating is where it is at. They have these walker things that the boys could use and they got to go around and around with everyone. I would highly recommend this activity for busy boys. Johnny had no problem, he took to it like he was born there. Jaxon and Zane used the walkers and were doing tricks and gymnastic type moves, it was fun.

Jaxon is the far kid and Zane is up close.
Johnny was trying to do spins and skate backwards.

This was our pour attempt at a gingerbread house from scratch. I tried to pass it off as asian inspired but alas nobody bought it. The boys had fun decorating it though.

On Friday the boys went up to the property to go camping for the last trip of the season. I was going to go but then the snow started falling and I didn't want to drive home on the ice so I bailed out before we got there. Anyway, here is our tree, the boys hunted the woods long and hard to find the perfect one. Look at the pride in the prize.

Our Mathew is One................On Thanksgiving we got to celebrate our little guy turning one. He was not at all sure about the cake, I am not sure he even tried much. I do the strip down to the diaper because I have learned there is no getting the colored food coloring out of clothes. He was the perfect little gentleboy, he only threw the cake around Grandma's house a little:).

For a while you couldn't tell whose birthday it was, Mathew was way more interested in eating the paper than playing with the toys. Hadley knew just what to do with her whole 8 months more experience. It was fun to watch. These two are going to be famous friends, I am so blessed.

So here is my future..........My Hadley is a little girly girl to beat all. She loves this sweat shirt, I found her screaming in her closet and pointing up at the clothes, there were several things we went through and finally she had it. Wow what a moment. On the Friday after thanksgiving my sister Debbie and I went shopping, we had our Haddy and Maty with us. Hadley descovered the jewelery section at walmart, she really liked the chunky bangled bracelets pink with white polka dots. We then went to the little girl clothes section, she has a opion on what is pretty and what is not. She is a pink girl by all accounts. We would ask her if something was pretty and she would tell is if it was "pretty" or "no pretty". Gotta love a girl with and opinion.
