Michael and I celebrated Valentine's Day a little early. Tuesdays are always a very busy day at our house, so we knew that going out on Valentine's day wasn't going to happen.
So Saturday we went axe throwing at JackAxe. It was really fun! My arm was super tired after 2 hours of axe throwing, but it's definitely something I would do again.

Michael was really good at it (shocker ;) ) and he was doing all kinds of trick shots.



A really fun date night!

On Valentine's Day, I went with Levi's class to the Silver Skate Festival at Hawrelak Park.
The kids played games and did all sorts of outdoor things:

Our last event of the day was the Ice Castles.
A really long slide that the kids all went on:

My group of kids:

It was 12C, so a lot of the ice was melting. Parts of the castle were dripping so much, it felt like rain.

King Levi:

After school Zack and I made cupcakes and heart shaped cookies. A busy, but fun Valentine's day!

Valentine's Cards - January Paper Pumpkin

Using the January Paper Pumpkin kit, I made Valentine's cards for my boys. 

I really love how all the different cards turned out! 
Can you guess who got each card?

A Few Days at the Lake

During Christmas break, we went to the cabin for a few days. I love the lake! It's so beautiful and peaceful there during the winter.

Zack and I crafted a little one afternoon:

Lots of walks and playing in the snow:

It feels so weird to walk out in the middle of the lake!

Warming up and watching a movie:

It was a relaxing few days at the lake!

The boys love tobogganing! On a warmer day over Christmas break, we went to the hill for a little sledding.

Zack got a ski racer for his birthday. He was super excited to finally use it! It goes so fast!


Jakob trying it out, too:

Family Ski Day

We wanted to do a ski day as a family over Christmas break. Since it was so warm out this week, we decided the night before and went!

The boys did lessons in the morning and Michael and I joined them for the rest of the day. Everyone did great and it was a lot of fun!

We had a great Christmas! 
Christmas eve we went to church and then over to Jordan & Kristy's for the Hermann Christmas celebration:

Christmas morning we spent as a family. The boys opened their gifts and then played all morning :)

After lunch, we went to the beach club to skate. It was a bit chilly, but the boys love our skating on Christmas tradition!

After skating, we went back to our place for Christmas dinner with my parents. It was a nice, low key Christmas!
