no words...


My little man is...rediculous


So apparently I neglected to post a halloween post and pictures of the kids.  You know I took pictures of course cause I take a million of them per month.  So here we go, our very own spider girl and pirate!

Christmas Lights

We decided to put Christmas Lights up on the house this year. We have sworn to do each year but this year we finally pulled the trigger. I wasn't home during the reaction of the kids seeing it but luckily, thanks to text I got to experience what happened:



Libby has always loved art projects. She has recently started making some REALLY awesome pictures and I wanted to share one of me / her that she created. Love this girl. Untitled Untitled

Christmas Time

Christmas time is here!  We are in full swing in the Ski Household and loving every minute of it.  We've decorated the tree and even have lights up on the house!  Oh yes, Christmas time is definitely here!

5th Birthday!

Libby and my niece, Zoe's, birthday are 4 weeks a part.  To save some time, money and energy for us and our families we decided to do a joint birthday party for our families this year.  Of course the theme was princess and the girls had a blast.  It was adorable!  I cannot believe how much they have changed over the years.

What I found really funny is how much they are like sisters...look at them checking each other's cupcakes out!

Libby and TJ love yoga time at school.  I found the one that Libby uses in her classroom on youtube and they both had a ball.  It was, what I always say, adorable :)

and here is the yoga video.  I highly recommend it!


How do they know when there are clean clothes around?

Big Sister

Who is the best big sister EVER?  That would be my girlie Libby!

TJ's Day (2012)

It's become tradition that for each birthday, they get to have me all to themselves and do anything they want to do.  I started it with Libby's first birthday and luckily have been able to do it ever since.  Last Friday I spent the day with TJ.  I couldn't do the Friday before his birthday but was able to do the one after.  We started out by going to Breadco for bagels.  We had sat down for about 5 minutes before TJ had decided he had had enough of this!

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled He eventually got tired and fell asleep on the way home.  After he woke up we went grocery shopping.  I thought Libby was the best grocery shopping partner but how can this little guy not be in the running?

Then we ended up playing outside for about an hour before going to collect his big sister at school.  We had so much fun!  Cannot wait till next year!

We got TJ a trampoline for his 2nd birthday.  Eventually we got all of the kinks worked out and when TJ got on it for the first time, it made EVERYTHING worth it.  He just loved it so much!  Every day is a bouncing day now in the Ski house!

She's next...

As hard of a time as I am having realizing how my baby could be two, I am having an even harder time knowing my baby girl will be 5 in a month.  I just want to slow this whole process down!

TJ turns TWO!!!

I am still not sure how it happened but my baby is two now.  We decided to have a small party with just family this year (so please don't feel excluded).  

We had an angry bird cake.

Little Fish

Libby had her first swimming lesson on Monday.  She did great job even though her classmates were a lot younger than her.  She jumped in and tried everything the teacher asked of her.  That's all a person can ask for on her first class!

School: TJ's moving up!

TJ just moved to the 2 year old room last week.  He's always had a bag to carry his stuff in but we decided it was time for an actual back pack (mostly because the bag seemed so babyish to me).  I was not prepared for how grown up he would look with it though.  Made me proud, happy, and sad all in one breath.

I recently decided that we needed to rethink how our craft/art supplies were stored.  The kids NEVER played with them and the table always seemed to be so full of stuff they didn't have anywhere to "work".  So we bought another bucket storage system (LOVE THESE) and now they kids can see everything and have doing something daily (at least) at their craft/art table - especially while I make dinner or lunch.  It has been absolutely wonderful.  I love watching their eyes light up as they create something new!!

Wanted: Dog

My son loves animals.  Mostly to torment them but he just loves to be around them.  I can't wait to get them a dog in a few years (I wish sooner!)
