January Stuff

Because of New Year's Eve fireworks are allowed so we did some with the kids. They were so happy to run around outside while Daddy lit some fireworks. It was also nice you could do them at 7pm instead of 10 at night like on the 4th of July.
Derrick and Caleb built a snow fort. It turned out awesome! They are both so proud of it:

This was funny. I took Brynn to story time while Caleb was at preschool. They asked for volunteers to wear hats. Brynn thought she could get one and come back to me. She was horrified when I told her she had to stay up front. She was on the verge of tears the whole time but I kept smiling at her and she never shed a tear. I got a picture of her up there and at dinner that night I told Derrick what happened and showed him the picture. Brynn kept saying, "Show me the picture of me sad." Even she got a kick out of it.

Brynn was just doing this one night. I thought it was cute so I just started filming:

Ice Skating and Temple

One of our goals for 2013 was to take the kids to the temple grounds 4 times so last Sunday we went. It was cold so we left pretty quickly. The funny thing is that on Christmas eve we had dinner at Scott and Julianne's place then went to temple square to see the lights, so the kids actually went 5 times this year!
Last week on Friday Derrick and I went to the temple and in the parking lot we parked next to this pile of snow. We had never snow plowed up so high so Derrick wanted a pic.
Derrick bought a Groupon for ice skating at the Olympic Oval so on Monday we went! James was with us for the weekend because he had a friend getting married so he came along too. It was so cute to see Brynn in little ice skates. She kept saying, "The ice is slippery." She wanted to stop a lot but by the end she could stay up while holding onto the walker. Caleb did better holding onto someone's hand. We all had fun and the kids say they want to go again.
