Baby, It's Cold Outside!

About a week ago we started getting the news that a Winter Storm was coming our way! I went to the grocery store like 3 times! When Ben and I went to the store Wednesday night there were NO BANANAS, and NO BREAD! What is everyone doing with these bananas????
Well the meteorologists were right. We got about 8 inches of snow on top of ice! Luckily we didn't lose power!
Matt, Ben, and I got out and played yesterday. Ben ate some icicles and snow, threw some snow balls, and made some snow angels.
We have these saucer like sleds that Ben refuses to sled on! It may have a little something to do with the fact that I traumatized him a couple of years ago. We had a winter storm and I wanted to take Ben sledding for the first time! So he and I got all bundled up I put him on the sled and pushed him down the hill in our front yard. He FLEW down the hill SPINNING & SPINNING! He then jumped the curb and landed face down in the snow. He was totally fine! Man, I still giggle about it!
So today my goal is to get him back on the sled! I'll let you know how it goes.

Yummy! (There is just something that grosses me out about this!)

Soakin' up some... snow?!?!?!

Hmmm, tastes like snow!

This little bird feeder was a happenin' place yesterday!

Oh Summer how I miss you!!!!

Party Animal!

Ben has had been invited to some really fun Birthday parties this month!

First we had Brady's "SuperHero" party! All of the kids came in costume! All of the kids had so much fun!
Here is Ben and his friend Alex enjoying the crafts and cake!

Then Ben was invited to Macie's Birthday Party. Well it was actually Cade, Cole, & Macie's party (they are triplets)! This was Ben's first time to buy a girl gift :) I took him to the mall and we picked out a purse, necklace, bracelet, a little coin purse. He picked it all out himself... well with a little help from me. heehee We wouldn't want Macie to be walking around with mismatched jewelry ;)
Here is Ben and the Birthday Girl! (I don't know why he does his head like that!)

He was so excited to give Macie her present! Here he is watching her unwrap it and telling her all about it!

They had every kids favorite, pizza!

Macie is the sweetest little girl... and cute as a bug!!! She and Ben have a little crush on each other! It's so cute!

Monster Jam!!!!

Saturday night we took Ben to Monster Jam at the BOK Center. He loves monster trucks and was excited to actually see the trucks up close!
We got there and bought these cool earplug/ear muffs. It was so loud once the trucks started up... I am so glad they had these for sale.

Ben and his cousin Landon watched the whole event!

Ben's favorite part was the Donut Contest!

I hope that since Ben enjoyed Monster Jam we can go to a Nascar race!!!!
