We have been busy in January with skiing. Both of the girls are enrolled in ski school which occurs every Saturday in Januray. (One more to go!) It has been fun and the girls have enjoyed it a lot. Week before last Halee got her turns figured out and so last week we let her ski by herself. She still is a bit out of control, but she can turn when necessary. (She was cruising down the hill and was getting really close to a tree and I was getting very nervous, but she turned at the last moment!) Hannah loves to ski. The more difficult the better. There is the short little run that is called Hully Gully that she has to go on every time. It's a little gully with lots of trees and rocks. (I have never been down it - I have Ed go with her!) She loves it!

This is Halee in ski class. She is the first one going around the cones.


Halee - it was pretty cold that day

In the mornings they have ski class and in the afternoons we all go together. Here is Halee on the chair lift.
Halee skiing on her own.

Hannah's class has been studying penguins. They also have a behavior management game they play that if the class as a whole is good, they earn a point. When they get to a certain number of points, they get a party. Since they were studying penguins, they had a penguin party. The brought penguin treats (we had oreos that I took one cookie off, cut and half and put back on split apart for wings and put a kiss for the head), dressed as penguins, made a penguin snack out of marshmellows, and watched a penguin movie.

Oh, man. I'd just like to say that I'm about 100% sure your girls are better skiers than I am. Hahha. Oh, well! That looks like such fun for your family.

The penguine cookies sound unusually cute.

That does sound like a great family activity!

Looks like y'all have a lot of fun skiing as a family. We have yet to make it up into the mountains this year.
