Thanks to Uncle Mark and Aunt Nicole for the indoor table top sand box. I think they agreed to vacuum my floor too, right?

I tried out a pin and made worms!! It was fairly easy and fairly life like. I did change the recipe and subbed out the standard prepackaged Jello mix for gelatin and juice concentrate to get rid of the sugar for us.
We went to the Rochester Ice Festival with our friends. Jason and Warren like the R2D2.
Sophie and Jason both enjoyed the festival.
We finally got a picture of all four kids. I didn't say we got them all to look though.
There was even a man carving a Kermit and Miss Piggie sculpture while we watched.

More snow! Finally, enough to make a full snowman! Daddy and the kids made this one, complete with carrot nose!

It's time to start thinking about the spring garden. We cut up our seed catalogs and made paper garden wish lists of things we want to grow in the spring. The kids especially liked things like purple potatoes, dragon carrots, and multi-color corn. We are going to have a colorful bounty this year at harvest!

I found a really amazing looking pin on Pinterest for make ahead slow cooker meals. I had to try it. I read up on it a bit and decided to blanch my veggies to keep them from getting too mushy.
I made: two bags of potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and onions to go with just about anything, a bag of sweet potatoes, carrots and onions to go with a frozen pork tenderloin, a bag of peppers, onions, mushrooms and bussel sprouts to go with beef, a bag of seasoned potatoes, and a bag of seasoned potatoes and carrots. And I had extra cut onions, so I froze those, too.

We wrote out Valentine's for our friends for our Valentine exchange party. Sophie learned to write her name while addressing hers. Here is her name written on her mailbox bag for the party.
