Big Booda 2

So here are pics of the big booda at six months. I'm sure I am actually even bigger then these pictures make me look. I am down to pretty much no exersice or extra activities, only daily stuff. Even the daily stuff I am very soar by the end of the day. This is the hardest part for me is the not being able to move or exercise and to think I still have two more months and bigger, ugghh! I'm trying to stay positve tho and do what it takes to get these two boys here safely and healthy. I have an ultrasound on my birthday so I will put an update on how the two are doing then.

Ice Park Fun

These are some of the amazing ice sculptures at the ice park this year. Fairbanks is where the world championships are held and they are so incredible. They also build a huge kids park every year with fun slides and mazes and toys carved out of ice for the kids to play on. We bought a season pass this year so we could go often and the girls have a blast. This is the last week because it is FINALLY warming up and the sculptures are starting to melt. Yesterday was our best day yet and we went here with some friends and it was 37 degrees. The girls didn't complain once about being cold and infact played for over 3 hours. We are soooo ready for Spring to come and are enjoying our long days again. Unfortunately I'm not very mobile these days and it's killing me to have all this beautiful weather and sunshine and all I feel like doing is taking a nap! I'm trying to endure and hopefully these babies won't stay in too long so we can all enjoy the sunshine.

A Day of Skiing

Here are some pics from a ski outing we did a few weeks agao. This is the trail that is just below our house, it's awesome! We can go skiing right from our house and this trial connects to about 100 miles worth of trails. We go skiing every weekend and I can no longer keep up with Ali and Saiger can almost keep up with me. This is a picture of Ali and Tana getting the hang of skijoring. Ali likes to hang on to her leash so she can let go when Tana gets going too fast or does one of her veers off into the trees. They are both still learning. It's fun tho, and we will also hook Tana up to the girls sled and she will pull them all around. I hope some of you are enjoying some spring weather. The temps have been great here, in the teens and twenties, but we have also received a TON of snow. Last Saturday it snowed a foot and yesterday it snowed another 10 inches. I couldn't get out of our road and Jeff had to go pick Ali up from school because I was stuck. It took me an hour of shoveling to finally make it back into our driveway. The snow is great but I am anxious for the spring weather to arrive.

The downstairs

I'm getting bored myself with all these pictures so these will be short. These are the stairs going down and the pantry/bookshelf. I haven't decided what I want to use it for so for now it's both.
My second favorite room in the house. This is the girl's hideout/playroom under the stairs. It's so nice because we can keep most of their toys in here and they don't get sprend out all over the house, or atleast not as bad.

The storage area, another work in progress. We want to build a bunch of shelves to keep the storage on.

Laundry room, across from the storage. With four kids I have a feeling this is where most of my time is going to be spent, joy!

The family room/box storage while we unpack.

The spare/guest area where you will all hopefully get a chance to stay because I know you are all planning on visiting. There is a bathroom off to the right that you can see the door and the green door that you can see the corner of on the left leads to outside. So FINALLY that about wraps up the house. There is some pics of the outside, we have a great yard that will be a lot of fun this summer, and a shed, but you will just have to come and see those for yourself.

The upstairs

These are the stairs going upstairs, because I'm sure none of you have ever seen stairs before. The carpet is one of the first things we would like to go if we can get some of my bros up here this summer. The blue isn't too bad, it's the wonderful pink it turns into once it gets to the top.

The view out our bedroom window. We watched a moose for about 20 minutes right here this morning.
The girls bedroom for now but will be the boys when they come. It's small but has to do. Our bedroom is below and is plenty big. I'm sure you are all so excited about these pictures, and I love showing off our mess but don't worry there is more!
