White Fang(s)...

CoCo got her first two upper teeth just after the holidays!  However, they are not her two front teeth (at least we hope not)!  Instead, she's punching out "fangs".  I had no idea this was even possible until about 4 years ago when our friend's little boy grew fangs.  I thought it was the funniest thing ever!!!  AND, I don't think I had any problem telling them how very crazy and strange I thought it was.  Well, the beginning of January I humbly called the Triggs and let them know that my babe also had "white fangs" and NO front teeth to go with them!  They loved this little fact and assured me that both their kids have nice little sets of teeth!  So, my very own Count Dracula and I are now learning numbers.... One Fang...  Two Fang!!!  :)

The Sun!

We don't often see the sun in winter. It was beautiful here last week and we took every opportunity to enjoy it! So, below are some photos of Coco rediscovering the sun!

Skating Party!

It was a blast! It was snowing so hard. The boys played hockey. The girls practiced their "pairs skating" and had hot cocoa! I haven't laughed that hard in a LONG time!

Michelle skated like only a girl can!

Di and I strike our pose for the start of our pairs figure skating routine!


Daddy & the snow!

Some people like it hot. Some people like it cold. Some people love the sun and others love the rain! Sun + Snow = Happy Ben!! I love the photos below!

A tumble in the snow with Daddy!

A little snow on the derriere to prove all the fun!
