We recently took a trip to Moonshine Mountain for some snowtubing.  Rafe and Cory had been but this was the first time for Stella Ross and myself.  We had so much fun and Stella Ross had NO fear.  We did choose to let the lift pull us up in our tube but Rafe climbed the mountain each time.  Needless to say he was VERY tired by the end of the night.

Lots of fun!

Here are some pictures of things we have been doing:

 Rafe and Stella Ross LOVE the trampoline.  They have a blast on it.

 They made snowflakes (and scorpions!) at the library

 These are Stella Ross' two favorite things - her FurReal monkey and the movie Frozen.  She has been to the theater 3 times to see it and knows EVERY word to EVERY song.  We are big fans!

 Stella Ross was so excited to get dressed-up for Tucker's birthday party!

These are Stella Ross' buddies at Rafe's basketball games!

Snow - Round 1

We had a lot of fun in this "little" snow event.  We had NO idea a bigger one was headed our way!!

Under the Big Top!

We had a great time at the circus ...... well, after the clowns left us!

Princess Breakfast

Stella Ross, Gram and I had a wonderful breakfast at Chick Fil-A with all of her Princess friends.  Stella Ross was SO excited about this day!  She woke up extra early so we could put on her make up, do her hair and paint her fingernails.  We met her best buddy, Ava, there for a fun morning of face painting, eating, and dancing with the Princess'.  Stella Ross' favorite, by far, was Rapunzel.  How fitting!

Go Rafe!

Rafe was recently recognized at the 2nd Nine Weeks awards ceremony for making all A's and for having Perfect Attendance in school.  We are so proud of his hard work and dedication.  He really loves school (contrary to what he says!).

Wall Leaf

Stella Ross was SO proud of herself at dance this week for earning her very first wall leaf.  Students can earn these after mastering what they are working on in class.  They are used to decorate a huge tree in the lobby.  Way to go, Stella Ross!!
