Snow Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a snow day today!  Depending on who you ask, we had around 10 inches of new snow fall within a 24-hour period.  With this new snow, came something that hardly ever happens...  School was cancelled!

So we took full advantage of our day off from school and played in the new white fluff!

Don't let the half smile on Cayley's face fool you, she wanted out of the snow.

Cayden has been on a bowling league since September.  Once the kids bowl half the season, they get a "free" ball.  You also can buy a bowling bag for them.  So of course we got him one, and OF COURSE he picks out Sponge Bob.
Every Saturday morning Cayden and Daddy head off for Cayden's bowling league. The li'l kids have been wanting to go so badly (even though they have no clue what bowling is, other than watching Cayden with his soft bowling pins and ball at home.  

Well, we finally decided to take everyone.  It was fun!

Green 'stache

The kiddos received a St. Patty's card from someone very special in our lives.  Attached to the card was this wonderful green 'stache.  They had a blast playing with it!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

We had some St. Patty's Day visitors at our house.  He/She/They came when no one was home. 
Do you know who they are?  They left a hint...

They did this in the boys' room. Hung some clothes and made a fort on the bunk bed.  (they aslo made a little fort in the girls' room

Basketball Fever

Our house has been hit hard by...

Basketball Fever!

Little Background:  for the basketball teams from my school (where I work) to make it to the state tournament, they have to make their way through two rounds of playoff.  We have districts, then regionals and then state.  We didn't make it to many regular season games because they start after li'l kids bedtime.  The tournaments, however, have varying start times, some of which fit nicely into our schedule.  So we have ventured out with all of the kiddos.  They love it!  We've been able to go watch the boys team and the girls team play.  For the most part, they sit in their seats and watch the game (unless gma and gpa are there, then the li'l kids feel the need to climb back and forth between all of us).  They do ask for popcorn as soon as we walk in, but they sit with their boxes and munch away and watch the game.

Well, yesterday was pretty decent out and Cayden was out playing basketball when I got home with the lil kids.  So we got out their hoop and everyone had a blast!

Aleah is in the light pink jacket, Cayley is in the dark pink/purple colored jacket, Brycey is in the blue and red jacket and Cayden in the blue/black/gray jacket.
