Playin in the Rain

Lake Winnipesaukee

One of my best friends up here in Boston invited us to their family's lake house. It was so much fun! We took the kids sledding and Kate loved it! The boys played hockey on the lake. We played lots of games and ate lots of treats!



This semester has been so much more fun then last semester. Mike has actually enjoyed school and we have got to spend time together. We have even been out on some dates! The beginning of the month Mike got an internship with Mckensie in Houston. YEA!!! They flew us down to Houston for the weekend. It was so much fun. Cat and Bryan came down from Dartmouth and watched Kate. We took Cole and flew to Houston first class!!! It was awesome, Mckensie paid for everything. We got to live it up!
In the hotel they had a candy bar with this women giving out candy.... so funny
We went to a friends house for a Valentines party then we went and got yogurt

After the party we stopped at this great grocery store that had little grocery carts. We definitely came home with more stuff then usually, thanks to all of Kate's help.
Mike surprised us with a yummy breakfast.
Holidays are so much fun with kids!

a friend had a pastry chef from the Marriot Hotel in Boston come teach us how to make some yummy valentine desserts. Kate thought it was awesome. She loves loves to cook!

Kate ate half an apple and wanted to save the rest. After she went to bed I opened the fridge and this is what I found.
We have been going to the Children's Museum on Saturdays with Mike. It is such an awesome museum


Cole has got some crazy hair. He looks like he has a tope the top is super long and the sides are short. He also has some major calics. After his naps this is what his hair looks like.
For Christmas Mike's parents got us ticket to Disney on Ice, Dare to Dream Princess Show. She was so excited to go! We totally had talked it up! She would tell everyone that we were going to "princess ice skating." She was so excited to go.

It was such a fun day. This sounds cheesy but it seriously was a magically day. We hung out all day together, Kate and Cole were perfect little angels and we had so much fun.
Cole's first taste of rice cereal.

The best part of the month!!!!
My birthday!!! 28 on the 28th my golden birthday!!!!

I woke up on Tuesday and Mike had made me breakfast in bed with this book he had made.

He sent me to NYC for the weekend to stay with one of my best friends Kelsey! He was going to stay here with BOTH kids and I was going to take the Megabus down to NYC. I seriously had no idea that he was planning something like this how amazing is he? I was really nervous to leave Cole since I was still nursing and had never left him. The ticket was already bought and it was a done deal.
I left on Friday at 12. Took a 4 hour bus ride into the city. It was amazing I read and slept the whole time. Kelsey and Robby were the best hosts. We ate great food, shopped, and saw the Broadway Musical, Sister Act. One of the best parts was 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep! I thought I had died and gone to heaven!
I seriously had such a great Golden birthday.
We went to dinner with the Cooks, went shopping with girl friends and dessert night with friends from my ward. I love birthdays!!!
