Since Christmas ...

You may be wondering what we have been up to since Christmas. Well, the answer is not much! We had a nice relaxing Christmas at home and actually stayed home the rest of the break. Saturday after Christmas we hit the slops for the first time this year. Hannah and I went up again Wednesday for just the afternoon. After bible class on Wednesday we stayed at the church buillding playing games until 10:45, when Halee hit breaking point. Thursday we just stayed home. Well, actually Ed headed for Colorado, but we stayed home. Saturday, the 3rd we our first day of ski school. Halee actually gets to be in ski school this year. YEAH! Maybe she can gain some skill in turning and then we can all ski together. Sunday was Sunday and back to the grind on Monday. That about sums it up! It was very nice to just stay home and relax over the break and not have to rush anywhere.

Sunday evening church services was really long (2 hours). Halee was getting a bit bored and started digging thru my purse. She got all the money I had ($2 and some change). She played with it for a while, then put it in her shoes. Then she wore her shoes like that for the rest of the evening!

This week I introduced Halee to a computer game. This the first time she has gotten to play on the computer on her own. She was pretty excited about it. (In fact she is now asking me to hurry up so she can play her letter game!)

The girls have been into building forts. Thursday when I got home they had the couch cushions off and were building forts. That lasted most of the evening. They made these "bedrooms."

Hannah's bedroom didn't have a roof!

Last night and tonight they have gone into Halee's room to play Barbies.

The skiing is most likely something Halee will be GREAT at soon - more of her physical advancement showing (like the swimming). That looked like that she was playing with! It's so great. Looks like Hannah enjoys the Easy Bake. Fun, fun.

I love the money in the shoes. Nothing really bothers children at this age, does it?
I also like Is that what she is using?

What wonderful winter happenings. :) Uggh ... the circumstances that necessitated that 2-hr. church meeting. :**( argh. I miss that age when something as mundane as money can entertain a child for a long time.... :)
