Exploring the Dam

Last Wednesday Griffin and I went to go explore the local dam.  We love this serene spot, and I thought it would be fun to see what it was like in the winter.

This is the look he gives me when he's testing me to see if what he's doing is going to go over or not....
of course since we were near a body of water, I knew what was coming.

I let him go for it.  Then he slid down the hill.  I stripped him down and put him in the van.  He was so happy.  :)

This Little Light of Mine...

You guessed it, singing in Church again!

Bouncing Fun!

 Wind tunnel fun!

Basement Basketball

Jamie has been wanting to put a basketball hoop in our basement for a while now, on President's Day the boys worked together to make it happen!

Griffin decided to take a few photos, this is my favorite....

Griffin told Jamie he didn't think that I know how to shoot baskets or dribble the ball, so I showed him my skills!

Ice Fishing....Again

On a recent Wednesday night, we headed out to our neighbor's fish house to do a little fishing. Griffin thought the bunk bed was great!

Visiting Great Grandma

We had a fun weekend visit with Grandma Dz!  We took both Grandma and Griffin to their first 3D movie and it was great!!  When Griffin was scared, he'd cover his eyes underneath his was really cute!

Teaching Grandma about Angry Birds....

Prepping for Valentine's Day!

Griffin made some cute cupcake liner flowers for his grandmas for Valentine's Day.  It's hard to keep him interested in crafts for too long, but he finished....with a little persuasion!

Pizza for Breakfast

Some days are just pizza for breakfast days.

We are a Wii Family!

We finally added a Wii to our family!  We had a fun family night playing sports games and Mario Bros.  I was so proud, I won the first game, which I know will be a rarity down the road!

Winter Frost

Jamie was playing outside with Griffin and noticed the amazing frost, so took a few photos.  Clearly, I am rubbing off on him!

A Rainy Day

Griffin wanted to play in the rain the other day.  He even asked if he could put his rain jacket on, grab his umbrella, go outside and stand under the hose.  I told him it was too cold, but came up with a good alternative!

Gosh, I love this kid!

The Three Thompson

I made popcorn the other night and got a kick out of our stereotypical "three little bears" popcorn bowls!

It was just a matter of time!

Jamie has been saving his birthday money since last year, and yes, his birthday is in MARCH!  He's had his eye on a used snowmobile for nearly a year as well.  And, he finally decided to buy it.  He was able to have some guy fun by taking the carburetor out to clean it and after some tweaking, it runs great!  Now we just need the snow!!
 And, yes, Griffin packed a backpack of stuff for our first ride!
