Enjoy last week's pictures:
Day 15- Sunday, 1/15/12
Today I made a pepperoni and cheese bread loaf in my new bread machine that I got for Christmas. It was a hit especially with the boys. Love my bread machine. It replaces my old one that I pretty much wore out and this one has lots of new bells and whistles. Isn't technology wonderful?
Day 16- Monday, 1/16/12
We were home for Martin Luther King holiday, and the sun was shining so we all went outside to play. The boys and the dog ran around while I did some more yard work. Brandon is really the only one that still fits in this play fort out back. It won't be long before we decided to take it down and maybe put some garden boxes here.
Day 17- Tuesday, 1/17/12
We are heading to the mountains for a ski trip in a couple days and I needed to get the most recent weight and height stats on my kids for ski rentals. Justin weighs in at 72.5 lbs, Tyler is a whopping 106 lbs (he's so proud that he recently broke the 100 lb mark) and Brandon is 64 lbs. I was also amazed that Tyler is now 5'8''. Where have my little boys gone??
Day 18- Wednesday, 1/18/12
At work I'm running a lot of western blots--something I used to do all the time back in the day but not so much anymore. Time to retrain and jog my memory. At least the gel and blotting systems are more streamlined and take less time these days. Yep- technology is a wonderful thing!
Day 19- Thursday, 1/19/12
We're heading to the mountains and it's snowing! We just hit the chain controls. They have not had snow in the Sierras since early November which is unheard of. It's been an extremely dry winter so this is a welcome surprise even if it does make for a white knuckle drive. Northstar at Tahoe or bust!
Day 20- Friday, 1/20/12
It snowed last night but rained ALL day today which really put a damper on our plans. We were going to go snow tubing and ice-skating but all that was closed because of the rain. The boys at least had fun playing in a small patch of snow at the village as their dad looked on while taking cover from the wet weather.
Day 21- Saturday, 1/21/12
The snow returned in full force so we hit the slopes! We were so happy to wake up to a beautiful blanket of fresh powder. It snowed on us all day but no one complained because it's so needed. We just bundled up and enjoyed the well covered slopes. HaHa! You can't even tell this is John and Tyler. At least the flakes were big and fluffy. It was like skiing in a snow globe ;0) The other two are in ski school which they have decided is way more fun than real school.
Wait! One More:
January's Family Photo
Our wonderful family at the Northstar Village in Tahoe just before heading home. So nice of the sun to come out and send us off for an easy drive home.
That's it! Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.
