The last big snow??!!

The boys were excited to help shovel and go sledding today. Mom and Dad are ready for some warmer days!

Caleb LOVES his sled! Everyone around is always in shock at how fast he goes down the hill.

Family shot.

Doesn't Jackson look miserable? He was really having a good time.

My three boys!

At night Erik took out the tent to entertain the boys...notice Jackson's hair!

"I'm not tired."

Caleb thought he didn't need a nap today... Here he is "watching Bob".

while we were away...

Nana sent these pictures of the boys while we were at the retreat. Caleb had a fever the whole weekend, but was in such good hands. Jackson decided to fall asleep sitting up in the crib. Nana said he was totally sitting up and by the time she got the camera and came back he had slumped over.

OneLife Retreat

We won the broomball tournament, defeating Libertyville for the first time in 6 years!
This past weekend we went on a Sr. High retreat at Covenant Point. We left the boys at the Stroms for the weekend and they all did great! It was hard to be away from them for so long (it was a foud day weekend) but we knew they were in good hands! Caleb actually had a fever all weekend, but Nana took good care of him. Thanks!

Our whole group before going home.

Bob the Buider LIVE!

While I was away at the women's retreat this weekend, Erik took Caleb to a Bob the Builder show downtown. Here are some pictures from their exciting night out!
So excited!

This is his face as soon as the show started...mesmorized.


At the end of the show, Erik asked Caleb if he wanted to buy anything (Gramma and Poppa, who watched Jackson and drove Caleb and Erik, gave him $5 to spend). Caleb looked around at the shirts, hard hats and tool belts and asked if they had a book. They ended up finding this pamphlet thing that opens up into a big poster, and it only cost $5!
He has been talking about the show since. Last night he put on his own show for us with all his trucks and we had to sing the songs along with him.
