 Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  We've been having lots of fun the past couple of month.  Here are a few things we've been up to.
Jon and I went to the company party at the beginning of January.  It's always fun to get dressed up.

 We went bowling with Atty.
 They are getting pretty good
 Carly is hilarious when she bowls.  She plunks the ball down then skips back to her seat. 
 We've made a trip to the aquarium.  The new otters are so cute.
 Petting the sting rays.
 Notice Brianna's cute new glasses! 
 We also made a trip to the zoo for a birthday party. 
 We've heard how great the Zoo is in the winter and that the animals are so much more active, and it is true. 
 We had so much fun at the Zoo.  We can't wait for all the new stuff there this summer.
What have you all been up to this winter?

Sometimes I wish I had a blog that always had new fun ideas and that tons of people looked at everyday and were always pinning my stuff.
And some times I look at these ladies blogs and think These people are CRAZY!  I just came across a blog that gave directions on how to paint your washing machine.  Really people?  Are we so desperate to be the perfect house wife that we have resorted to painting our washing machines,....... with polka-dots?!  Her husband must think she is crazy!   I've said it before I think that we all put way too much pressure on ourselves and have become competitive about being a good mom.  I think it is ridiculous.  Now I totally admit that I fall into the trap too.  I sometimes debate posting stuff I've made or done because I don't want to come across as showing off.  The think is, I love sewing and creating stuff for and with my kids.  I do it because I want to and I feel like some times these blogs are just doing it so they can post something.  Some times reading them just makes me tired.
