January Note: We simply didn't take many pictures this month. Will try harder next month!

Visiting Preschool

January 28, 2011

Today Lexi and Brie visited Alpine Elementary School Preschool.

This is the same place where Drew was in preschool and where he is currently in Kindergarten.

The girls had a great time, making the decision on where to enroll them very difficult!

Fun Night Out

January 24, 2011

For no reason at all we decided to take the kids to Burger King tonight to have dinner and play.

This particular BK is fairly new and has a good mix of activities that the kids love.

Living Room Campout

January 13, 2011

Daddy had the kids at home by himself for most of this evening, so it was the perfect to pitch a tent in the middle of the living room for a kids campout, complete with a movie on a laptop.

The setup

The kids were all cozy to watch their movie and then all slept in the tent (somehow).
This is the tent that Drew had on his bed and slept in every night when he was much younger (2 maybe) for a few months.

Movie Night

January 12, 2011

Periodically, we try to go all out on a stay-at-home movie night.

Tonight was one of those nights, complete with blankets on the couch to catch all the popcorn from the special "bowls."

All three kids having a GREAT movie night

Gingerbread House

January 5, 2011

After waiting (im)patiently throughout most of the Christmas season, the kids finally got to make a gingerbread house with Mommy today.

They each got to add their own special touch and the result was spectacular!
