Beckoning Spring

So, yeah, we're pretty ready for winter to end. The last couple of weeks were pretty harsh, -20 to 0 degrees F. Its warmed up now, gonna be in the 20's so we're joyful over that fact! :)

I have to see the beauty in this cold weather. I love the trees when they're frosty, the pine needles look so cool.


Saddi loves the snow and loves to run away from me.... she's over in the neighbors yard here..ah hem.
And Kyra decided it was cool skateboarding in the snow, you can do tricks and you don't fall. (hehe, you aren't moving,, so that helps ;)

Alec and Abbi have been spending time together conquering Final Fantasy X. Alec has beat it before but Abbi has never done the whole thing so they've been having a really nice experience doing that. The storyline is pretty cool on that game. Alec is so excited to get up in the morning just bursting to play with his sister. Its really sweet seeing these 2 hanging out together. Can't believe he's gonna be 14 soon! Wow. His video games amazed me again this week, (yeah, it is continual *g*). He was reading the game guide for Final Fantasy and showed me that with one of the bosses, as you're fighting it, if your level is divisible by a prime number you get hit by this super high percentage of damage. I'm like... whoa, discussion of prime numbers followed. Crazy, mathematical stuff going on in those videos games that a lot of people aren't even aware of. So if your kid likes video games get those guides! It really can enhance their game playing, its amazing!

Tim is in Chicago for the week so the kids and I are going with some friends to Thief River Falls today. They have a hotel casino up there that has a huge water park, so time to go enjoy warm water and tube rides!
