Because i don't want to forget...

A couple of days ago I was in the bathroom doing my hair when Ally came and knocked on the door. Dressed in in princess gear she asked me "Can I come in your castle?"

The calm before the storm...


It is an understatement to say that we are going through a rough patch with Ally at night.  Sleeping has been so difficult. We took her binky away about 3 weeks ago and she is still having a really hard time. After many nights of major middle of the night tantrums we are doing the cry it out method. It seems weird to do this with a 3 year old. But it seems to be the only thing that is going to work. Last night was progress because she actually went to sleep without crying...actually gave me a kiss and a hug and laid in bed. Of course when I went to check on her I see her surrounded by books with the light on but hey, at least she was quiet and went to sleep! In the middle of the night she woke up twice and cried for about 15-20 minutes each time and then ended up falling asleep on the floor. Found her this morning on sleeping on the floor in front of her gate on her door. Hopefully she'll be sleeping through the night in her bed in a few nights!

Wow...its been forever

since I have updated this blog! Not really sure where to jump back in so I guess I'll just try to start current/stay current. Not much has been happening around here anyway, especially in the photo department...darn winter! But we did go skiing/snowboarding last week for a few days so i got a bunch of pictures of that. The big story of the week was on our last day when Brandon was attempting this jump:


but had a bad landing and ended up with a broken wrist:(
He was so bummed, especially about the fact that he will have to sit out the end of his basketball season. But he did think his orange cast is pretty cool:)

I go a couple pictures of him getting worked on by the mountain medic


and getting taken down the mountain

It was quite the ordeal:)
in happier news...Ally skied for the first time and absolutely loved it:


And Max made huge improvements since we last went on New Years weekend...he was doing awesome!


And Brandon is so fun to watch...but hard to keep up with! And he is a little daredevil:


We had an awesome time!
