let's make this a yearly tradition

grand targhee, idaho
we spent this past weekend in beautiful grand targhee idaho. brett's aunt jeanette and uncle rod were so kind to let us stay at their cabin for the weekend. the first day we spent skiing at the grand targhee resort. brett's little sis hayley, aunt jeanette and i rocked the mountain.... well we thought we did. i hadn't been skiing in about 3 years so i was proud of my skills. it was the best time of our so fun! brett, uncle rod and zach did some true skiing and conquerded the entire mountain. visibility was not the best but we skied pure powder! i mean i have never skiied in snow like that....EVER! it was beautiful snow! thanks to brittany and brandon we were able to go. they watched little steele back at the cabin so we could have a great day.

the rest of our trip was filled with family fun! snowmobiling, sledding, good food, games and quality family time.

when the sun was out it was very warm. we probably didn't even need our coats but with all the rolling around in the snow it was smart to stay dry.

hal was very helpful as always. now she even feeds steele all by herself. pretty impressive for a 4 yr old!
the back porch had about 3 feet of  fluffy snow. we had a blast jumping from the back porch into the powder. look close and check out our faces. we got some better pics on other cameras but this was the best from mine. craziness.

the boys just aren't as cool as the girls....

happy valentine's day
crazy love
{disclaimer: i am not responsible if anyone reads this that is not supposed to...}
 we all say hayley is in love but she'll bashfully disagree. she just met the guy 3 weeks ago. we'll have to see what happens. he sent her this beautiful bouquet of flowers all the way up at the cabin because they couldn't be together on v-day. he did his research and found the one flower shop that would deliver all the way up to this rural place. Ahhhh.
hayley then returned the favor and left a day early to surprise him on valentines day. josh and i helped her cut out tons of hearts to decorate his room. {hayley needs to go back to the second grade and learn how to cut out a decent heart. you should see the hearts she cut. seriously hilarious!}
boys bath time- bentley always takes baths with his girl cousins and he finally got to take a boys bath. they had so much fun splashing and going crazy.

this was the result of their fun....

good times with the cousins

ten months

{steele is now ten months}

i blinked and now he looks like a little boy
what happened to my baby?
he is still the cuddliest baby around and
he'll lay on my chest and look up at me with his curious eyes
it melts my heart every time
his thumb has to be in his mouth for him to cuddle, but it really is so cute
he is such a loveable, even tempered little munchin
he now has 3 almost 4 teeth and knows how to use them

these are some of steele's tricks:
{at our house we call them tricks, i promise he is not our pet}
high five
 "the face"
{smiles on comand with his eyes closed, also does this automatically when you pull out a camera}
touch down
{reaches his arms in the air}
knows where mommy's eyes and nose are {only mommy's}
how old are you going to be?
 {still working on this, he'll hold up one finger}
takes 2-3 steps without falling
{not walking at all but making progress}
"who is it?" 
{when you give him anything he'll put it up to his ear and talk on it like a phone, today it was chapstick}

steele is very shy. he rarely performs any of his trick around new guests. he tends to look down when he meets anyone new.  

speed demon {steele has mastered crawling. he is so speedy he can't keep even the drool in his mouth. He is even more speedy when he is headed for something he's not suppose to play with like in this picture he is headed straight for the camera.}

touch down
happy super bowl sunday everyone
