Winter miscellany

Random photos I've found on my phone in the last few months...
Eamon and his new light-up chess set. Today, after we froze solid after an early spring hike in the never-melting snow, he played it under the covers in bed. 

Another favorite Christmas gift for Mr. Magic

Littlest bookworm

11/12 cousins at the yearly New Years photo!

This child LOVES sushi!

Puppy love.

Sadie trying her hand at gymnastics this year.

Dressed and ready for his first gymnastics meet.

Une fille parisenne in her new clothes brought all the way home from Paris by Uncle Michael, Auntie Mare and her cousins.

Fairy bear

It's been a long, cold winter and this Eskimo girl is trying hard to stay warm

Spring is coming, right? Let's hope this is the last snowball fight for a while!

Is Spring ever going to arrive?

Who cares?! I'm cozy in my scarf and hat!

Liam's team came in first place in one of their meets. He did so great at the State Championship, he is going to Regionals in April! 

It's hard to be a dog. I need as many pillows as I can get.

So happy that her bike came out of storage!

Eamon is happy tear off down the road himself. The Bigs took off so fast I couldn't even get a photo of them.

Trying out Liam's slackline. He just couldn't wait until the ground cleared, so we gave in and put it up hoping the two feet of snow would cushion the falls a little. 

Liam wanted to give snowboarding a try. He hated his lesson because it was "too slow" but once we took the lift up the mountain, he was in all of his glory.

After 4 kids and 11 years, I was afraid I wouldn't remember how to ski, but it's just like riding a bike, no problem!

Finally take a break after a long day on the slopes.

The little couple, always together, always on each other's nerves.

But sometimes actually two little sweet peas in a pod.
