I have been busy, but I am still here.

Bretta in her favorite shamrock shirt.

Kids in the snow yesterday. We are getting
more snow today too, YIPEEE. (sarcasm)

Caden and Bretta last Sunday.

Not to much going on here. We have been working, doing homework, and not much else. Aaron and Caden did go ice fishing with Dan Timmersman and the workers on Saturday. The workers have a picture of Caden scooping snow and licking it off the minnow scoop, YUCK. Bretta and I stayed home and she went out on the front step in her flip flops and built a snow family. I will post a picture of that. Aaron has started baseball practice after school everyday. The kids and I go home eat, play for awhile, I run while they watch a movie next to the treadmill, then we have baths, brush teeth, and get ready for bed. When they are in bed, mom does homework. Pretty much the same routine everyday, so no excitement here. We are looking forward to visiting Wisconsin for Easter and going to Fargo for the circus the week after Easter.

My wonderful and talented husband is in the top 10 for teacher of the year. The kids and I were right in the middle of a really loud pajama party (aaron is gone) and the phone rings. It was one of the Teacher of the Year Committee members calling for Aaron. I took her number and called him to return her call. She thought I was out at a Bar, Aaron explained that we were just celebrating, because it is Friday night, aaron is gone, today was the last day of the quarter, and I will use any excuse to eat pizza and dippin dots. Just kidding, we like him to be home too:) Bretta read a book at the dentist this week about a pajama party and insisted we have one. The best part is I think I have to sleep on the floor downstairs tonight, unless she forgets that part of it. (PLEEEEEASE) If I have to sleep on the floor I will never be the same again:) I will post pictures of party tomorrow and let you know if we stay up all night.

Latest happenings.

Grandpa Gary and Payton- Puzzle box for a hat.

Payton in the slide at the playland. He will
be three on St. Patrick's Day.

Mom, Bretta, and Kendra.
My mom fell on the way into meeting last week and broker her knee cap, so she had surgery last Friday. Aaron and I and the kids are heading down there to visit on Thursday, we are off Thursday and Friday for Hockey Break. We are also going to be attending a birthday party for Payton, my cute little nephew, who will be turning 3 on St. Patrick's Day. Bretta has her party outfit all picked out. She is going to wear her I love Daddy t-shirt that has green sparkly letters and a big shamrock.
They just announced that we will be getting out of school at 2:15, a whole 45 minutes early, you would think we were getting a week off the way the kids were hollering and cheering. I could hear yells for a good minute coming from other classrooms. Anyway, the weather is getting bad and all the schools are closing. I just hope we don't get to much snow, YUCK! I'm ready for spring:)

Fun weekend

Caleb reading to the kids

At the motel-Saturday morning cartoons

Kiddies in the pool
We went to Bemidji on Friday night for Aaron's workshop and the kids had fun at the motel. We shopped a little on Saturday, then came home and the workers were here till Monday. I am looking forward to next weekend, as we are not going anywhere. I have a few projects I would like to get done this week, but we will see if I actually get anything done. I have a baby shower I am putting on after school today for a teacher here at school. He and his wife are expecting a baby girl soon, their first.
