Big Little Brother!

My little brother, Shelby, turns 30 tomorrow and we went to Deadwood to celebrate.

Food, family and fun!

Jason and Shelby were having fun at The Oyster Bar...YES...there were oyster shots involved!

Happy Birthday Shelby!!!!!!!!

HOPPY Easter!!!

We hope you all are enjoying your Easter Sunday!

Gabbie, Jason & I dyed Easter eggs last Sunday.
I am so glad I started getting ready for Easter early, because of our busy schedule this week.
I also realized that the simple, no-gimmick dye kits are the easiest and the prettiest.

We had only one sacrificed out of 1 & 1/2 dozen...not bad!

On a side note:
I added a couple of new blogs to my faves.
It is a SHAMELESS obsession!

Swimming and Snow Drifts

As many of you know, South Dakota has made major weather news several times in the past month. We had a really nice week in March and then on the 22nd we had a record breaking WARM day. It all went down hill after that and we are currently digging out of our 3rd BLIZZARD since.

Gabbie is finishing up her first sessions of swim lessons at the YMCA. She has done awesome and we will probably sign up for one session, since we OBVIOUSLY won't be going to any public pools for awhile.

Finley is enjoying the snow. She doesn't have the snow gear to go outside this year and neither does Mom, so I opened the patio door and let her have a little taste...LITERALLY!

Cabin Fever

Jason and I are doing fine, as well. Lots of work, kids and repeat! We really feel blessed to have a healthy family and to also have jobs during this time. We have no big plans for summer yet. Some old friends are visiting in May and July, so that will be fun. I am DREAMING of SUN!
