January fun...a few firsts

Roller Skating...

Early in January Favorite boy was invited to 2 birthday's on the sameday. First he went to a local indoor swimming pool to celebrate Charlie's 6th birhtday and then went to a sleepover at his buddy Hunter's house to help him celebrate his 5th birthday! So much fun.

The week after that, Favorite girl was invited to Ellie's 4th birhtday party at Happy Joe's! Lot's of celebrating! The kids are thinking up some great ideas for their birthdays this SPRING!

We attended our first High School basketball here in SE IA. Kind of funny to me that this was our first game since that is all I had to do when I was younger. We used to attend every sporting event!
Last Saturday we went roller skating for the first time. The kids did so well. I was really amazed at how quickly they caught on! I was really afraid that I wouldn't be able to do it anymore. I am so thankful Carrie and Adam invited us along!
We had so much fun last weekend, that we decided to do it again this weekend. Favorite Boy called Grandma at 8am on Saturday morning and begged her to join us for the fun. And she did! She drove 2 hours just to go roller skating with us! We went out for dinner at Gator's and then enjoyed the movie Up! at home. A very nice relaxing weekend.

Favorite boy is already asking if we can go again next weekend!

Both kids are in gymnastics at the YMCA and really loving it. I can't wait to capture pictures of their somersaults. They really want take swimming lessons but I don't want them going out in the cold weather with wet hair. Hopefully they are still as excited to participate next session when the weather warms up. I hope to post some recent pics very soon. FG accidentally dropped my camera in September and I finally replaced it! I have been going crazy without a digital camera for 4 months!!

We got the bug!


Favorite Boy woke up Sunday morning around 2am vomiting in his bed, yuck! Every hour or so he had another episode, poor guy! This lasted until 11am. I really can't complain because we have been so fortunate this year. Other than a few sniffles and coughs we have been very healthy!

As soon as dad was up for the day he was off to the gas station for 7UP. Both kids enjoyed sipping soda for the day. Favorite Girl was happy as could be all day so we sort of wondered if FB got sick on Saturday at his first ice fishing trip with dad, grandpa, and uncle Chris because uncle Chris was very sick on Sunday as well...but we could be confusing his with brown bottle can never be to sure???

We couldn't be so lucky, Favorite Girl came to my room at 445 Monday morning and in her most excited voice said, "Mommy I throwed up in my bed just like broder!!!!!" I could hear the glee in her voice even at 445am. Aaron and I jumped out of bed to go clean up the mess and we asked her why she was happy to be sick. She said she was happy to be sick like her broder. She remained happy the whole day. She also was sick until 11am and then took a five hour nap and woke up feeling good. Aaron stayed home with her and when I got home from work he told me she was the happiest puker he'd ever met. She even made it to the bathroom every single time (unlike her brother who insisted on having a bowl right by his side the whole day).

...because we want to keep in touch
