Fun with Friends

This past weekend we spent the entire Saturday playing with Delta, Demetrius and Moma Hope at a lovely park.  The kids had a blast and it was tough leaving (we gave the kids 5 5 minute warnings over the course of an hour before we finally got in the car;-)

Visit by Grandmom Cathy, Great-Gram, Aunt Con & Uncle Henry

This past weekend we had a visit from Grandmom Cathy, Great-Gram, Aunt Connie, and Uncle Henry.  It was a blast and the kids (as well as adults!) all had a fun time.  Here is Grandmom Cathy reading to Odin and Björn under the tent they made in the living room with a big sheet and some stools. 
 Yes, we even played twister!
 It was cold out, so we had a nice fire going all night in the fireplace to help warm up the house.

 Björn REALLY liked Grandmom Cathy and he is still talking about her every day and asking to see her pictures.  Very cute.

Weekend Fun

This weekend was spent at the Lake house and the land with our good friends Lynna, Max and their son Luca.  On Saturday we played all day at the lake house and in the evening made a fire.  The kids found their special seats to enjoy the fire.

 On Sunday afternoon we went to the land for a bonfire and lots of hiking!

A family picture (rare moment of us all standing still and together).

And a goofy Odin...don't ask why Bjorn has a broom on the hike!

After the hike we went down to the part of the land we call the meadow and played by the creek and had a bonfire.

Two mommas!

Good Judgement

Odin got recognized at a special ceremony today at school for having "Good Judgement." He wouldn't disclose to me what he did/said to get this recognition or when it exactly happened, but either way...it was special!

Here are all the "Good Judgement" kids from this morning.

And here's my special "Good Judgement" kid :-)

Odin has taken two pottery classes this month and seems to really enjoy creating cool (and usable) things.  This past Saturday we went to the second class, picked up a bowl we made at the first class and made a mug.

 Here is Odin adding texture to the slab of clay that will become his mug.
 More texture and the green bowl he made in the first class.
 His mug!  The pottery studio will glaze and fire the mug for us.
Just a little bit of snow on the ground left...and a new hat the Momma crocheted for Odin.
