Snowmaggedon 2

The day after I posted the last duck pond video, we woke up to this

Getting to the chickens in the greenhouse was a bit difficult but they were thankful to have a dry place to walk around in.

On Friday, we headed to the kids elementary school hill with some friends for some sledding.

The Girls 6th Year Anniversary

So I'm totally behind on posts (what's new, right?).  We celebrated the girls 6th anniversary of joining our family on March 8th.

We had to have a purple icing.

and a purple cake too!

The girls have changed just a little bit in 6 years.

Duck Pond?

The Ducks seem to be the only ones enjoying this miserable day!

Jump Rope Team

One of the big deals at our kids' school is the Jump Rope Club.  3rd-5th graders are eligible to participate, and then a Jump Rope Team is selected to learn routines and perform at the local elementary schools.  AJ has been on the team for four years now, and the girls have been waiting impatiently (and working on their skills to be ready) for their chance as 3rd graders.  This will be the only year that all three of our kids are on the team together.

On Monday, the team had a performance at their school, and we were able to go and watch.  One of our friends, a grandparent of another jumper, took this awesome video of the whole performance (AJ's solo performance is at the 16:00 mark):
