This winter we haven't seen the sunshine the last two mornings when I have gotten up this is what I got to see...secretly I wish it was snow falling but I will take the sunshine instead of grey skies. I really miss our winters as kids with so much snow we made tunnels and forts in the snow!  Guess I will have to settle heading to the mountains with the snowmobiles to get my snow fix!

Cabin Weekend 2013

We love this family!  Such a fun crew! This weekend was the annual Pingetzer Family Cabin Trip to Lake Wenatchee.  We spent the weekend sledding, eating, going to a hockey game, eating some more, more sledding, the snow falling and a marshmallow fight!  Thanks Kim and Ed for letting us crash your party and hang out with your awesome fam!
Modeling our lovely Sorel boots!
Amber and Ashley look like twin with their purple coats and black headbands!
Brian may or may not have white washed Ashley...

We had lots of tube races!
I think Amber beat Brian on this one!
Team Faw fell off the band wagon at the start!
Brian missed the mallow fun because he had to head out early and as usual the kids ate as many as they threw!  Grandma Kim always know's how to have a good time! Next time I might have to wear my safety goggles though I got a mallow to each eye this year!

Sunny Day at Salmon La Sac

Saturday we went up to Salmon La Sac with Eric, Alice, Dustin, & Julia. We spent the day playing in the snow and soaking up the sunshine!  It was cold and dreary when we left home and even foggy and freezing at the parking lot, but as soon as we climbed a little the sun was out and it was an beautiful day out on the slope.
The guys were climbing this big hill behind us so we sat int he snow and enjoyed the day.
 We had a few sleds break down during the day so Brian and I rode mine together for a bit and Dustin and Julia rode Brians together.  These machines aren't meant to be ridden double so it was quite comical...

Brian had some meetings in Portland, Oregon this last week so we met Andy and Cenone there for a little adventure with the work.  Best part, we made is to VooDoo Doughnuts (a infamous Portland establishment) for some whacky doughnuts!  They have doughnuts you can't even favorite the voodoo doll doughnut and the maple bacon bar!  They were so tasty.
Cenone and I had some fun shopping and enjoyed some amazing meals.  If you are ever in Portland, the Urban Farmer is my new favorite eatery!

Needle Felting

Trisha got us needle felting kits for Christmas so we decided last night to test it out.  Her's was a chick and mine was a owl!  It was so fun!  If you don't know what needle felting take big strands of wool ball them up and stab them with a needle until they start to take shape.  It's a great way to get aggression out!  Ruth and Dotty were great little helpers.
 Is that just hilarious or what!!
