5 years old

Today my handsome man is 5 years old! 
Where has the time gone?? It seems like he was just barely this tiny little baby, that quickly grew into the bubbly happy child that he is now. 
It has been so much fun to watch him grow!
 I am the luckiest mamma to have had this boy in my life for the past 5 years! 
Happy Birthday sweetie!

Valentines Day

Our Valentines was very low key this year. Having two rambunctious kids kind of makes it hard to go out on Valentines Day. My sweet Mother-in-Law offered to watch our kids but we decided to stay home and have a nice dinner together as a family. 

Here are Tatum's Valentines we made this year...

Eric had to work all day, so I thought I would try documenting a typical day at our house. And here is a day in the life of Tatum and Trey (pretty much all we did on Valentines Day). 

The kids woke up to streamers and balloons everywhere and little surprises at the table.

I made a delicious breakfast for everyone...seriously it was so YUM!

We spent the morning playing wii and games together.

Trey learned to take his socks off...I don't know why this was so funny to me :)

Then after lunch we moved on to coloring. Trey also has learned to take off his pants!

Grandma then dropped off some cute goodies for the kids.

Then Tatum watched a show and totally past out on the couch.

Meanwhile Trey needed a snack and made a HUGE mess of his yogurt! Pretty typical.

Of course I had to strip Trey down to clean him up. He then found a balloon and seriously played with it for an hour! I just waited for that balloon to pop...surprisingly it never did.

Soon after Eric got home and I made him a yummy dinner. I found some recipes off pinterest for chicken curry and mango sticky rice and wanted to try them out. They were sooo good!

That pretty much sums up our Valentines. The kids went to bed and Eric and I stayed up watching some of our favorite shows. Nice and quiet!

Ski Day

For Christmas Eric and I got season passes to Sundance. We were so excited to start going and thought since kids are free that it would be a good time to start Tatum skiing. We picked a warm sunny day to take Tatum up with us. 

Getting ready to start...

We started at the bottom of the hill and just strapped Tatum in and pulled him around to get a feel for it. He was a bit scared at first, but soon realized this could be fun.

Once he was comfortable, we hiked up to the bunny hill.

Eric was so good with Tatum. Eric and I both snowboard so its hard to be strapped in to teach a kid to ski. Eric had to carry Tatum to the top and then run behind him holding onto his leash.

Tatum quickly got the hang of it and soon had a great time. He only had a few moments that scared him, but overall he was really brave!

This next one made me laugh...

We taught Tatum to slow down by putting his skis in a "big pizza". In no time he was skiing like a pro with his hands on his hips and all.

Overall the day was a success and Tatum cant wait to go again!!

I'm so proud of my little skier!
