In Other News (January/February Style)

Despite the blistering cold and steady snow, January and February kept us a great mix of busy and relaxed by the fire.  We brought in the New Year with a relaxing evening at home, played more Innebandy - Swedish floor hockey - the next day, built and raced Pinewood Derby cars.  Wyatt did awesome and will be going to Districts.  We did a ritualistic sock burning.  Don't even ask.  Basically Kody had a hard time parting with his favorite but well worn, many holes socks.  We had a celebration, set them on fire and said goodbye.  I went with my friend to a Brantley Gilbert-country music- concert.  As a Cub Scout Pack we toured the local news station.  Just weeks after the roof collapsed in on part of the building because of too much snow.  Glad we weren't there then.  I got to babysit my friend's baby.  It was sweet having a baby in the house after so many years without one.  We participated in the kid's Valentine's Day parties after our own breakfast of heart pancakes.    We also learned at said party that Kody's New Year's resolution is to save more money. That's my kid - proud Mama moment.  And we tried to channel our inner spring by making a fruit pizza.  If the news report is anything to go by it didn't work.  Never a dull moment around here.
