What we have been up to

Basically what we have been up to is playing Candyland, Candyland, and more Candyland.  Audrey got it for Christmas and it's a must every day.  It's the perfect game for her, I actually love it too!

We got an Ipad2 this week and I am having some problems with my blog on there, I can't upload pictures onto the blog from the Ipad.  So, I am possibly going to start a new blog on Wordpress, I will see what I can find out about that.   I'll fill you all in if I switch over.

First time skiing

I know I already put these pictures on facebook, but I have to blog it too. Audrey had a blast skiing on Friday night with Brent. After the second time down she wondered when it would be time to go home. We were both bummed and then the next time down it all changed, we couldn't get her to go home. She just kept wanting to go down time after time. She was totally interested in all of the other skiers and snowboarders. One of her favorite things was riding the lift to the top. Brent took her up one of the big lifts and they came down a different hill besides the bunny hill and she loved it and said their was even room for me and Grandpa next time, ha.

The funniest thing was when we were in the rental shop and they were sizing her up for boots and skis and she got the boots and they were black and red and she said, "These are boys boots." Ha, I think she was expecting some pink ones.

Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

We have never been ones to whoop it up on New Years Eve, it was nice this year to hang out just the three of us at home. We had a blast playing Candy Land and Princess Dominos and eating nachos and little weiners, or as Audrey would say, "They are not weiners, they are hot dogs."

Lots happened in 2011:

Audrey turned 3, love this age!

Welcomed our new nephew Elliot!

Had a visit from Uncle Adam and Aunt April!

Had two vacations, one was the rainiest week of the summer and the other was the hottest week of the summer!

Audrey took swimming lessons for the first time!

Brent ran the Mankato half marathon!

I ran my first ever 5k!

Audrey went from awesome sleeper, to not so awesome sleeper!

We joined our new church and Audrey started Sunday School!

Audrey started Pre-School!

Brent and I celebrated 9 years of marriage, I think 10 years deserves something big!

We look forward to 2012 and the wonderful things this new year will bring!

Do you see what I see?

Audrey got her ears pierced today!!!!!!

My mom always said, if Audrey wanted to get her ears pierced she would take her and get it done. Well, today we were at lunch with my parents and out of the blue Audrey said she wanted to get her ears pierced. We asked her again if she was sure and she said, "Let's Do It!"

I remember blogging last year around Christmas about all the different ornaments on our tree. I thought this year I would do all the ornaments that relate to Audrey, it's amazing how many we have. I love them all!

This ornament we made last year for the grandparents, it was super frustrating, but finally turned out great. I was using the wrong paint and the snowmen hats and scarves kept peeling off.

Audrey got this cross in Sunday School today, she turned the "G" upside down:)

This was her ornament she made in school last year for Christmas.

She picked this out at Michaels this year while shopping, it was full of yummy candy.

My coworker Gene got Audrey this candy cane "A" this year. He loves getting Audrey presents at all holidays.

This is the gingerbread ornament Audrey painted in preschool this year, she wanted to keep it in the box she brought it home in, but I insisted on getting it on the tree.

Lefse Night

Wednesday night we went over to Doug and Bev's and made some lefse while Audrey helped Grandpa Buddy(that is what she calls him now) build a gingerbread house. She totally didn't understand the gingerbread house at first, she thought it was going to be big enough to go inside it. So, after we were done putting it together she asked when it was going to grow, ha. We had a great time!
