It's Been Busy

Last Thursday I watched this little guy.  Evelyn was at joyschool.  Look how serious he was.  Cracked me up!

Two days after Luigi was formed, this is what he looked like.  We had 1 1/2 days of rain and a thunder and lighting storm on Thursday afternoon.  The snow went fast.

 Evelyn threw up on Friday before Tony and I were supposed to go on a group date to see "The Pajama Game" at the 5th Avenue theatre.  So, Tony stayed home and I took our baby-sitter.  She loves old movies and she deserves to do something fun like this instead of just getting canceled.  It was such a fun show! 

Then we ate at Elephant and Castle.

Saturday Ryan had a birthday party to go to and I took the littles to Max's basketball game.  Unfortunately my phone ran out of batteries but Max played so well.  His heart was in it.  He made a turnover and took a few shots.  He played with a lot of enthusiasm.  He has really picked up basketball!  Then I went to a bridal shower.  Then Tallie brought the kids over and we had pizza together.  It was so fun to catch up.  It's been too long. 

Tony and Mark spent the day welding and getting their Sprinter van worked on for 9 months of traveling across the U.S.  Tony was in his creative element and loved the day just to create and have guy time.

Snow Days!

It started snowing during the Super Bowl on Sunday and snowed quite a bit throughout the night.  School was closed and daddy came home early!

Snoopy the Pilot snowman

Max giving Tigerlily a dry surface since she didn't like the snow.  We don't let them out, but they got out and we wanted to see how they would react to the snow.  Hook was the only fan.

Ryan worked on a snow fort by making bricks in this bucket.

When daddy came home we went to the park and it started snowing again.

The second snow day we went sledding!

Luigi the snowman

A PotPourri of Pictures

Sometimes I go through phases where I am not on top of picture-taking.  We've been having a lot of fun and here are some random pics that capture a little bit of it.

I helped with cub scouts one night.

The one time in a long time I get my kids McDonalds kids meals and Evelyn's comes with a little heart-shaped mirror with lip gloss.  Nothing like giving 3 year olds make up.

Max at basketball practice.

Brother and sister cat love

Tony had a guy's weekend to go to his buddy Oliver's birthday party.

Funny faces before story time!

Avid and cute readers


I love family scripture time.

Pokémon Go hunt and enjoying a beautiful day at Gene Coulon Park.

Oreo taste-testing

Playdate fun!

Cute Tiger Lily

Chaperoning a field trip to see, "The Boy Who Cried Wolf".

The youth had an iron chef activity and we had one of the groups at our house. 

Cute kids trying on hats at Target

Disturbing Movie--Split--but we liked it.

Tacoma Glass Museum and a little walk about downtown Tacoma.  We walked around first because a it was just drizzling.

I got nostalgic around the University of Washington, Tacoma.  It's a cool, urban campus.

The library has a beautiful Chihuly chandelier. 

So cool!

The hot house in the glass museum

The tiniest fraction of the art we saw.
