We went to Derrick's work part on Friday which was at Soldier's Hollow, a sledding place that pulls you up the hill and the hill is a long, fast ride down. Brynn was too small for that part but they had a little hill she loved. She kept saying, "Sledding," meaning, she wanted to go down again.
Caleb and Derrick went up together first. Derrick said when they got to the top, after being pulled up, Caleb said he wanted to go again. He thought being pulled up was the ride. I can see that because at the end you do get to go over a small, twisty hill and that part would be really fun for a 3 year old. Derrick and I took turns going with Caleb. At first we would pull Caleb around but then he wanted to pull his own tube. He loved it and has been asking in his prayers that he will get to go again.
After sledding we went to the downstairs of the lodge where Derrick's company, Lucid Chart, had dinner and gave out humorous awards. Derrick got the"Smartest Domo Employee," meaning, Lucid Chart got Domo's smartest employee.
One of Brynn's favorite songs is "Rock-a-by Baby." I tried to get her to sing it. The first attempt she was a little unwilling but this video makes me laugh so hard, I have to share it:

Here is when she warmed up to performing:

Caleb sets up his train tracks almost everyday. One of the things Derrick will do with Caleb when they he gets home from work is play trains with him.
One day we went outside to play. This was the first time I put gloves on Brynn (because they are finally starting to fit). She loved the gloves and the only thing she wanted to do was stick her finger in the snow and eat it. Her checks were so red by the time we came back inside:
  • I was sick Monday afternoon to Tuesday night with a fever and aches all over my body. On Monday I was laying on the couch and I said to the kids, "Mommy needs to get some medicine." Brynn went right over to her diaper changing area, picked up her Desitin and brought it to me saying, "Here Mommy. Medicine." So sweet!
  • Just as I was getting better from the fever, I started getting a runny nose. It kept getting worse through Friday. On Friday my nose was constantly running on both sides. It was awful, normally one side of my nose gets blocked and the other is fine but I was blocked on both sides. Anyways, I was blowing my nose and Caleb excitedly told me, "That sounded like a helicopter!"
  • Caleb loved Valentines Day because of all the candy. He smiled so much after he came home from Pre-school with a lot of candy. The funny thing was that pre-school was on Wednesday so he thought that was the actual V-Day. At night I explained how it was really the next day.
