What We've Been Up To

New Year, more blog posts coming your way. I had a great break with the family, well besides all of us getting sick at some point. Although Mr. must have mad hand washing skills...or he just doesn't get slobbered on as much, he seems to have miss the colds we have all gotten the last two rounds.

So onto the last few days of what we've been up to. I'm just going to make this a long post of pictures (not that it's different from other weekend recaps posts), so grab a coffee and sit tight.

Mini Fox enjoying brother's birthday cake

Clean little Fox

You can see all of her teeth in this funny she got her side teeth in before her two front teeth.

And they say it doesn't get cold here...

In fact so cold that we got some snow...those hills in the background, I've never seen snow on them that low. My friend got 4 inches of snow in her backyard, unheard of where I live.

Aren't all of those solar panels so ugly? Try to ignore them, I do. In case you wanted to know, I took this picture from my bathroom window.

New Years Eve, we headed to visit my cousins and their new baby. Don't worry he's not smothering her, he's holding the pacifier in her mouth, to say she's a fussy baby is the understatement of the year. But they're doing great. This is Cousin #8 and Cutie #10 (cousins baby)

Afterward we headed to my brother's house for some New Years fun.

He had a bounce house in the garage for the kids...

We were suppose to write a new years resolution and #foxnye2015

Yummy cupcakes from the Hostess with the Mostess

My family, the guy in the middle my brother and I went to Kindergarten with, and we both ended up going to the same college, my brother and his wife.

Party Animal!

But not so much at midnight when we got home.

New Years Day we did the playdate thing, finally my friend and I had some free time!

They have a cat, Mini Fox was pretty much obsessed.

Try to get two 1 year olds to look at the same time, impossible

She really wants to wear brothers shoes, now if only she could find a matching pair

and maybe put them on the correct way, wearing your shoes backwards makes it hard to walk.

Friday we had some friends over for dinner. At least one of them seemed happy

Saturday we had a birthday party in the morning

They played some flag football...

Or tackle as the case may be

Off sides Mini Fox!

Some baseball

Tree climbing

Pizza Eating

Mini Fox is growing up so fast! I finally had a camera on me to take a video...

Saturday night we went to my Aunt and Uncle's house for dinner with Cousin #3 and her family.

Table for two

Mini Fox wanted to sit too, but she didn't make the cut

Cousin secrets under the table of course

Sunday Mini Fox was pretty sick all day...poor thing. She took 2 three hour naps, crazy right? And when she was awake, she was like this.

Mr. took Baby Fox to the movies and then out to lunch

hotdogs dipped in apple sauce of course
 He was tired, almost fell asleep while eating lunch, that never happens!

Mr. and I watched both seasons of Orange is the New Black, so good! Can't wait till the next season comes out, then we started on season 4 of Game of Thrones, also good. At least we won't have to wait as long for season 5 of that one.

Back to the grind...and back into working out, now that I'm healthy, hoping to get back to the gym a few days a week.

Happy New Year, any new years resolutions out there? I don't usually set any, but this year, I'm going to try and make dinner more often. The last few months I've gotten really lazy...need to cook more!
