Oh whatayaknow?! Its the end of another month, which means here I am with another under the wire post! Apparently this is how I roll now. One post a month. Nothing more! Lets recap, shall we?
Here’s one of Dylan’s hockey tournaments he’s had recently. This one was in Crosby.
Obviously, he’s not the one with the pony.
I recall they did not win this game, but oh well.
So, its been quite the long winter here…..which has led to lots of boring days….which has led to….CAT SELFIES!!!!
It has swept our household. At any given moment, you can hear someone yell out, “CAT SELFIE!!!!!” Oh okay, so its really just Avery and I doing the cat selfie thing. Oh look, here Milly doesn’t want to participate.
CAT SELFIE!!! Avery yells.
“Mom, she’s not looking. I will turn her head. CAT SELFIE!!!!”
“Milly! Button! Ginger! LOOK AT THE CAMERA!!!” (Button and Ginger are 2 of Milly Mux Muxatoney Phil’s newest nicknames.)
Heres our new tubby tub! Its now fully installed…picture not included….too lazy to go down and take a picture, which I’m sure someone will complain about.
I know what you are thinking. Eric turned THIRTY SEVEN!?! I know! I thought he was 36 too! (see picture where the Mom may or may not have told the son that his father was 36)
We went out for dinner and he proceeded to get totally wasted! Hahahaha. Okay, so he only had this one. Its just that he’s weird. Which you all know.
Gosh, I wonder where Dylan gets it from.
Oh okay, we’re all weird.
Some more than others.
Please ignore the cake. I was told that I had to wait on this whip cream frosting under right before we were going to eat the cake. So, yeaaaahhhh not my best work.
Check it out! I wrapped Eric’s present Eric style – in a blanket!
More SELFIES! Hey, where be Button?
This is Valentine’s Day morning. They both got a couple of little prezzies. Avery got a couple of Frozen girls.
And Dylan got a Lego Chima speedor. I always love his genuine reactions.
HOW have I NOT mentioned the weather yet?! OH MY well let me tell you. Its been below zero for like 50 days this winter. Not exaggerating. What does this mean exactly? Well, it means that children then stay indoors and drive their parents crazy. Yep, I said it. So this is the first time that they went outside since December when I took pictures of them for our Christmas card. No joke.
Dylan got right to work on a snow fort.
Avery made chunks of snow food? For in the fort? Something like that.
Ginger wanted to know if it was safe to come outside yet. Literally, she was sitting there meowing away at me and I was all, “I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!!!!”
Shantytown is over yonder.
And December’s snowman is still completely in tact.
We had 2 warm days. This day it was like 45 degrees. That’s what my iPhone told me anyway. And I chose to BELIEVE.
So we went out for air.
I feel like I hardly have ANY outdoor snow photos this winter. Going outside has just been too unpleasant. Its like knives on your face. Why would I go outside if it felt like knives on my face?
Ahhh, the old homestead. Can’t wait to get to “know” this place in the summer.
Where the heck is Mux?! She lives for selfies!
Avery even went sledding. I had to dust it off first before she could go on.
Then Dylan got home from school and they made their first snowman since December.
And did some tandem sledding! Olympic inspired!
Here’s Avery before practice one night. Both kids wrap up hockey this weekend with tournaments for each, so MAYBE, just MAYBE there will be a special blog post on that. 2 posts in March?! WHAT?! I know. I know.
Oh yes, then after it was warm, it was like, oh HA HA, you all liked that – WELL FORGET IT! Back in the freezer you go! Except I’m pretty sure its warmer in our freezer than it is outside…..anyway – it snowed a bunch again and then it got super cold again. What else is new though. This is our life here. And we embrace it. I was shouting through the window – MAKE ME A SNOWMAN ON THE DECK!!! (knives on face! KNIVES ON FACE!!!)
Later that week, Muxatoney Phil was found sunbathing. CAT SELFIE!!!!!
And then here is today when I realized we better do up something awesome to end the monthly recap post. So we made masks. Thank you Family Fun magazine.
Purdy, purdy girl.
One of her jams came on, so she quit doing her aaaaaart and decided that “you better MOVE, you better DANCE!” – quick name the song!
And that’s all for today. I hope to see you again soon! 😉
