Keith got to check one off the bucket list when he went to the Packers vs. Cowboys game! The better part, he got to spend the weekend hanging out with his brother and cousins and had some pretty phenomenal seats. I'm pretty certain he will remember this one for a very, very long time! I think this was his first pro football game, the entire time we lived n Minnesota, we never made it to a Vikings game.

Since our beautiful spring weather disappeared and it feels like October around here I thought it would be OK to post these ice skating pics. This was our FIRST time ice skating! I went once back in 1994- and it didn't go that well then, so I was a bit nervous to skate with 3 kids at my side. Keith really wanted to back out but ended up going for it. It was actually a blast!!! Much easier than I thought and the kids did OK. It was super busy - so that made it hard with the kids. They had so much fun though, so we will definitely do this again next winter - we will be sticking to roller blade for now.
Olivia loved it!!! Every time I looked at her she had a huge grin on her face.

Look who got away for a long weekend!!! Keith and I went out to the Lake Tahoe area and stayed with Keith's cousin for the weekend (like almost 2 months ago). My first time to the area and it was absolutely beautiful. The weather was actually pretty warm for the time of the year and the snow was about 5-10 feet less than normal.
We spent one day skiing, which was super fun. I hadn't been skiing for a few years. Always a little worried I might blow a knee on the slopes, but did OK. Jim taught me to ski much better, so that helped. Keith did alright too, but had a huge bruise on the backside.
We went skiing at Squaw Valley, where they held the 1960 Olympics. The views were amazing, you can almost see Lake Tahoe in the background.
Keith and I took an adventure around the lake. We stopped at this fun little beach where there were tons of stacks of rocks, the boys would have been in heaven.
We made a last minute stop to Emerald Bay on the way to the airport - worth the stop!!!
Check out these amazing trees- we saw even bigger ones as we went.
Overall, we had such a fun time. Erin and Jim are great hosts and took us to some fun spots! Always fun to get away, but of course I missed the kids!!!!

She was wearing this for about 4 days - she's finally given it a bit of a break. The girls in her room are really into their accessories.
Some big news to share about this girl!! WE ARE FINALLY DONE WITH THE PACIFIER!!! I'm still missing it, but overall it's gone really well! I told her on a Saturday to enjoy it as much as she wants and we should throw it away the next day. Sure enough - she threw it away the next day. She's asked for it some, but not too much. Last night she told me she was a big girl because she doesn't have a pappy anymore.
Since she doesn't have her pacifier I think her vocal has tripled, she's been talking up a storm. Random stuff too! She said, "mom, you're not my sister. I'm Carter's sister". Then a few minutes later, "I like you, I really like you." Recently when I have taken her shopping, she will ask the workers, "what's your name?" Then she will also tell us, "I love you to the moon and back, really bad." Then at night I usually sing to her - with our Lion song she will say- "you're not that good at that" or "you don't remember all the words". True, Keith is much better:)
