We drove to Hoffman, MN to stay with Paul's grandma this past weekend. A bunch of female members of Paul's family signed up for a Pallet Painting class, including Paul's Grandma, Paul's Mom, Paul's Aunt, Paul's cousin, Paul's sister, Paul's sister-in-law, Paul's great uncle's wife, and Summer and me! We drove up Friday night, and then on Saturday we girls had a fun shopping date to the cute shops in Alexandria, where we also met up with a bunch more of Paul's family who live in Alexandria for lunch. We then headed to our painting class which went from 3-6pm. First, we stained our wood boards, then we assembled our signs with screws and power screwdrivers, then we prepared our stencils, and then we painted. We all got to pick our own sayings, stain color, and paint color, and it was a really fun experience to do together! Here is a picture of our finished signs:
*Check back for more pictures...I will add more as I get them!

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day one day early, as we were leaving to go out of town to see Paul's family on Friday the 17th. We had fun eating everything green!
|Pesto Parmasian Baked Chicken|
|Sparkling Juice with green sherbet|
|And bread with "green" butter (food coloring ;) )|
I had things to share about both of my girls, so I decided to post a few pictures of my favorite son so as not to leave him out :)
|Colton loves to be silly and make us all laugh! Here he is making "shorts" out of his pants in the middle of winter :)|
|Colton loves to be outside. He will spend hours making his own fun and playing. Here he loved chipping large chunks of ice at the park and lining them up.|
The conversation that accompanied this moment went as follows:
Colton: "Hi, Princess!"
Larkyn: "Colton, will you marry me today?"
Colton: "Not right now, please, Larkyn."
|Colton isn't normally my artist kid, but he has been loving this book from the library on how to draw diggers!|
|I think his drawings have turned out pretty good! He doesn't have nearly as many drawings as Summer did at this age, so I like to capture the ones he does!|
|They made several airplanes and had fun discussing some basic principles of how airplanes fly! I love the relationship these two can share!|
