We are in the midst of recovering from a record breaking snow storm that dropped nearly 36 inches of snow in Frederick!  The kids have been off from school since Friday and I will be surprised if they go back at all this week!  Ashton finally loves the snow and has been enjoying sledding a lot!

Photo bombing daddy!

Also last weekend we went to a roller skating party for our dear friend's the Henry's and Ashton actually tried roller skating.  I couldn't believe it!  He fell down at first and cried and we thought had had given up skating for good.  We even returned his skates.  But after a break of cake and ice cream, he decided to give it a go again!  He did great!  They had these awesome pvc pipes with wheels that helped them keep their balance.

A new year begins!

Happy New Year!  I had tried to post right after Christmas, but my computer and internet were acting funky!

Anyway we had a delightful Christmas season!  Ashton was so cute!  Under the tree where two large gifts for him.  One from Pop-Pop and us and one from Grandpa Bob!  He saw the large one from Pop-Pop and Us and exclaimed, "I knew I was on Santa's good list!".  So cute!  The remote control Monster Truck was definitely the hit of Christmas!

So excited for his Monster Truck

The day after Christmas we went to our friends house to ride real ATV's. Ashton was a little reluctant at first (even though all he ever asks for is real ATV), but the smiles on his and Lily's face were priceless!  So awesome!

We rang in the new year with our friends Patsy and Mark, Katie and Dan, and Hope and Andy.  The kids had a great time playing together!  Ashton fell asleep in the car immediately upon pulling away!
