Ski Vacation

For mid winter break we continued the Knowles tradition and headed to Sunriver for the week. So many memories were made and Callie and Liam constantly talk about it. They love being around their grandma and grandpa, playing with their cousins and skiing (Callie). Callie had so much fun skiing and loved going through the trees, doing jumps and skiing with Grandpa. Liam had a blast with Grandma - they rode bikes, went for walks, snuggled, and played cars together.
We are already looking forward to next year!
Liam got to have Bennett all to himself for a day and he was so happy about it! (if only he would keep his eyes open)

After the long drive, the kids were able to get some wiggles out in Sunriver before getting into the house

These kiddos were amazing skiers! They lasted until the last chair almost every day that we skied! So fun skiing with them!

We had some beautiful snow when we were up there
We got one…

Liam is three!!

Not sure where this year went so quickly but we recently had a boy turn three. Liam was so excited to celebrate his birthday and be a "big boy". We had a small family party and then celebrated with the rest of the Knowles family in Sun River. It was completely perfect for him - a cake with cars on it and truck gifts....he was in heaven.
He has come so far in this past year, I couldn't be more proud of him.

 His speech has improved significantly and continues to surprise us with his vocabulary. He continues to be the happiest when he is outside and can truly spend all day outside if you let him. He loves riding his scooter, his bike, and driving his remote control car around the neighborhood. He is obsessed with cars and trucks. We continue to try opening him to new things, to no avail. It is trucks and cars, all the time, anywhere. He loves his big sister and idolizes her. Luckily Callie is extremely loving and kind with him and tolerates her little "shadow". Hi…

Snow Day

We were blessed with 2 snow days this week. It was so much fun spending the day outside in the snow and playing around. Both kiddos spent all day in the snow and loved every minute of it. We made snowmen, went sledding, made snow cones and snow ice cream, had a snowball fight and went for a long walk around the neighborhood.
It started snowing Sunday night and the kids ran outside trying to catch snowflakes in their mouths
I'm pretty sure Liam's favorite was to eat the snow....
Maya, Laurel, and Sarah came over and enjoyed the snow with us. The girls made a giant snow head.
And ate snow cones....
Our family of snowmen!

New Moves...

Not sure where he learned to dance but he's got some new moves.....


Can I just say how excited I am that we no longer have to buy diapers ever?! Liam is officially potty trained. It was a much different process than with Callie but we are figuring out quickly that everything will be :)
One proud little boy!

The Holiday Season

Whew! This season has been a busy, busy blast! We managed to keep busy the whole winter break, in the best possible way. We worked hard to enjoy every minute of the season and took advantage of every day of no school.
We started winter break with a fun weekday ski date with Grandpa and the Jones clan. We ended up with a beautiful day and the kids ended up lasting all day. A lot of great, long runs were skied.
The day was full of sunshine and great snow. The mountain was absolutely beautiful!
Everyone got to ride together because Crystal Mountain has 6 person chairs
Clara and Callie had so much fun skiing together. A bit timid at first but as the day went on, Amy and I were told we needed to stay behind them because they were the "leaders"
Love my ski buddy!
Part of Callie's Christmas present this year was a date night with just Preston and I. Liam got to stay home and snuggle with Grandma as we headed out to the Fifth Avenue theater to watch The Little Mermaid. It was so…
