Mason's Polar Plunge

Well it's January and we've had three solid weeks of absolutely terrible weather. The fog didn't lift at our for a full week and it didn't get above 34 degrees for two weeks so Saturday morning at 10am when Mason saw a small chunk of sun he decided it must be swimming weather. Mind you it was only 40 degrees outside. I think this awful weather we've had lately has made us all go a little crazy but SWIMMING! They had just re-discovered their new kick boards from last summer that they never got to use and of course what better opportunity than now? James didn't want to tell him no so he decided to let him find out on his own how cold 40 degrees is. He went out to the shed and got the pool. Mason filled it up with water and jumped in not once but TWICE! Brock being slightly more sane never got in past his ankles. If you asked them the temperature of the water Mason says it's "medium" (yeah right)whatever that means and Brock says it's wreally, wreally, wreally, wreally, wreally, wreally cold! We actually had to make Mason come in the house before he froze to death.

Grandma Dodge's New House

Well it's out with the old and in with the new. Grandma and Grandpa Dodge are getting a new house and the boys got to stop in during several of the excavation and delivery steps to check out the progress. They of course found this whole process fascinating.

Home Depot Bird House

The boys love their Home Deopt projects and James seems to love taking them. This was the first time that I was able to tag along and we made bird houses.

Burrito Babies

The boys asked me "Mommy could you burrito wrap us just like when we were babies?" Uh sure.....oh ok...not sure where this came from but the boys thought it was sooooo funny :)

New Years Eve Avengers Crew!

Okay so I was too lazy to post pics from Christmas this year but here is a cute one from New Years Eve at our house. Some of the kids decided it would be fun to ring in the new year in costume. We felt very safe hanging out with this crew for protection.
