Ride 'em...

Skylar got the Zebra for her birthday and loves she is on and off it herself all the time...sometimes she will slip when she is getting off then gets in zebra's face and yells at it, like the zebra made her fall!

Look-alike Meter

OK so I did this because when I am with Sheri everyone is always telling me how much I look like my mom...this past weekend was another time where EVERYONE kept saying they could pick my mom out of a crowd (but they've never met my mom), and then they would point across the room to Sheri. SO I decided to test it out and see, according to this Sheri and I resemble each other more then her and Chris! So I guess the old saying is'll marry someone like your mom:)

Playing dress up...

I had been folding laundry walked out of the room for a minute, I came back and Skylar was helping but instead of just throwing everything out of the basket she was trying to put everything on...the funniest thing was the socks, she tried over and over to put them on her head and after many failed attemps she decided to wrap them around her neck like a scarf...I think we will be getting some dress up clothes in the future

Syrup is so you think they want me eating this, its to good to be true!

Skylar has been a fan of pancakes and waffles for quite some time, but she has always had them plain, I figured no reason to hop her up on sugar! But this weekend I gave in and let her have a little syrup on the cinnamon sugar french toast I made...she LOVED it! She at 2 whole pieces and then proceeded to yell at me when I handed a plate of french toast to Chris...

Look at me...

I think I am a pretty cool girl...especially when I get to do big girl things like showers!

Snow Bunny

Skylar LOVES the snow, she points at it says 'BRRR'...then says 'touch'! It is so cute.

Erik rocks one out!!!

how cool is this pic, Chris captured this on his camera phone, way to go Chris! The snow at Caberfae was AMAZING on Saturday, they got 12 inches of fresh snow friday with an additional couple before daybreak on Saturday! Needless to say we had great skiing conditions, best in a long time...a blast of a weekend!!

Skylar's first time Cross Country Skiing

We got the back pack for Christmas (thanks Pop-Pop) and we have been dying to get out there and see what Skylar thought. She loves being in the pack inside and she loves to be outdoors, so we thought she would love to be out with us when we cross country ski. It was a success, she seemed to enjoy being out and she was bundled very well, so the cold was not a factor. The pack has a roof and windows so it keeps the elements out. It was so cute, every time we passed someone on the xc ski trail she would say "HI", it was very cute and she was pretty popular!

New Family MOtto...

enough said, right? This wonderful sign hangs in the entry way at the cabin, my mom got it for me for my bday, she thought it fit:) It totally does, thanks Mom!!

Cute Girl, Silly Hat...

Is this why we love Michigan...

...the scenery is beautiful...the temp (YES that is the temp from Sunday Feb. 10 without the windchill) BRRRR......

Ty Ty & Sky

It is so awesome that we live so close to Chris' family because Skylar gets to grow up spending a lot of time with all her cousins and second cousins (and they are all so close in age)! Here is Skylar with cousin Tyler...Tyler is 10 months older than Sky, its so cute when we go to play, he walks around saying "Skylar down, play!" and Skylar is of course intrigued by Tyler!

Sammuel Cole Martin
