"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Fresh snow and first ski of the year!

Emme first thing in the morning. She sure is one chipper lil girl...
Just checking out the snow. We've had the most beautiful snowfall...much more than our time here last year. The kids love sitting on the couch and watching it...
She just jumps and squeals. How big is too big for baths in the sink? Sister hates showers...they totally freak her out because she does not appreciate water splashing her face. The sink is going to have to work ;)

Today Blake took the boys skiing. We were so excited for them, and they could hardly sleep last night because they couldn't wait.

Look how stinking cute he looks! My goodness, he looks like he is 8 here! Blake said he was incredible today. He would get off the lift without any help and then ski to the bottom of the slope (green) and just wait for Blake to come down with Cooper. You're a natural buddy!

Thank you Blake for taking pics for me! I wanted to be there so bad, but it's too hard to find a sitter for the girls AND pay for me to ski. Blake is free and the kids rentals are super cheap and their lift ticket is free.
Stopping for some lunch on the mountain. What great bonding time with their daddy ;)

The kids this morning after breakfast. Most of them are half-dressed...this is how we roll.

Since the girls and I had the morning to ourselves, we went for coffee and cocoa at Starbucks in town and then did a little window shopping. We had a blast!

I have a solution for the shower... we had one that wore a hat in the shower. Yep, a basic baseball cap :). Also, we have been snowed in lately, here are three of the girls favorites snow day activities so far...
1. Fill the sink with water and play in the sink. (It is also a great way to clean up the kitchen floor.)
2. Put snow in the bathtub and build a bathtub snowman.
3. Build with marshmellows and toothpicks.
