A is for Apples!

I do not get any credit for any of this yummy goodness. Troy did it all while I was working on a project for Thea's class (why do they assign homework to the parents...:-). AND the kids took all the pictures too!!!

Connor Prairie and Cousins

While the boys (Troy , Nolan, and Kevin) were in Nebraska for "some big football game", the girls (Raelynn, Brya, Thea, Robin, Amanda, and Alayna) got together for a big day at Connor Prairie. We allowed Flint to hang out with us because he sometimes likes to put headbands on.....:-)

The pics loaded in a weird messed up order but I'm too lazy to fix it all so I'll just put captions on each one. For those of you who don't know what Connor Prairie is.....YOU are missing out! is an awesome living history "museum", prairie town, civil war reenactment and much more. Also, we just happened to be there on the "country fair" weekend so we got in a few extra activities as well.

Outside of the general store (end of day....can you tell?)

Flint thinks that it is hard work to keep up with the girls.

Seems that everyone is posting about snow, so I'll add our pics to the mix......

First we had an ice storm. School was cancelled for 3 days.

Daddy gave the kiddos rides in the back yard. Wheeeeeee

This is Brya and Thea "trying" to play at the swing set. It was quite a chore to even walk around.

Our driveway still isn't clear of the ice.

Blindingly beautiful at times!

Then today we got another 4 or so inches......

Ok spring....anytime now!!
