Farewell January

 This weekend was jam packed, but really, what weekend isn't? We headed to Lowville Friday night for a girls sleepover and to get Gram and Gramp out of the house. Winter is tough for them and they feel a bit housebound from time to time. We went out to dinner at Jeb's, watched an old movie and then hit some of our favorite Lewis County stores on Saturday. It was tons of fun.
 MMMMMMM Gramp's popcorn.

 The girls had tons of fun coloring in "adult coloring books".
 When we got home on Saturday afternoon we hit the slopes. We have been so busy that we haven't' been to Dry Hill as much as normal this season. I helped one of Seth's teammates, Stella to become more comfortable skiing. She was a ton of fun to share the lift with and chat with.
 We ran into half of Seth's basketball team up at Dry Hill Saturday night as well and we ended up having a blast with all the parents. The temps were so amazing that night that in between runs we just sat outside and chatted.
 Leah was SO happy for some girl time.
 There are no words.

Such a great group of boys and we are so happy that they can all ski/snowboard together.

SPC Turns Double Digits

Seth had his very first multiple friend sleepover for his friend party this year. When he decided on this option I got right online to find fun game ideas to keep the wild boys busy all night long and it was a total success. I didn't want the five of them running wild all night long.
They played soccer for quite a while.
We had a taco bar.
Baby Food Taste Test Challenge

The fruit flavors were such a huge hit that the boys asked to finish the jar.

The gross meat and veggie flavors were another story.

Canned beef is never a good flavor.

That game was such a success and full of laughs.
Next up was the "Black Out" scavenger hunt. They had to find certain things in the basement using only a flashlight and they were timed. Boys like competition for sure.

Last, but not least was the messy game. They had to eat all four gummy worms without using their hands. This one was so flipping funny. Boys said it was their favorite.

As if they hadn't had enough candy, the finale was a make your own sundae bar and a movie. AKA quiet time for the parents.

I believe they were asleep by midnight and up at 6:30am.
Up bright and early for a pillow war.

On Saturday, Seth also had two soccer games. He scored in both games and had so much fun handing out his cupcakes to all of his teammates.

The finale of the birthday was a small gathering of family on Saturday night for Art's pizza, salad and brownie sundaes.

He will be getting a new hoop in the spring as his gift.

Officially 10 at 9:34pm
