Snow?! I Thought it Was Spring!

We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning! Weird considering the warm temps we've been seeing over the past several weeks. Max was the first to spot it since he was up making sure Daddy got out to do the calf chores right away at 6. Jaxon slept in till 6:15, that's late for him!

We spent our morning digging out the playroom so I treated the boys to an afternoon of sledding in the 1/2 inch of snow we got! (Who knows, this may be the only snow we see this winter!) 
This was Max's 1st sled ride. Jaxon was not too happy about having to ride in the back! 
This became a fun game... that and bailing out while flying down the slopes! 
Max was making a snow angel! 
Here's Jaxon making his snow angel!
Of course they both had to taste it!
Not sure if he's trying to be an abominable snow man or what?!  
The snowplow made a pass through the driveway so we can get to school in the morning!!!
If this is the only snow we see this winter... I wouldn't be too disappointed! 
SHHHH... don't tell the kids!!!

Coffee Anyone?!

I've actually been going to bed each night excited to wake up in the morning... not sure that's ever happened before! Why you ask?! Because of this little machine!!!

Keurig - best coffee drinker's invention EVER!!!
The boys have been getting great enjoyment out of it too! Jaxon LOVES hot chocolate... the Keurig makes the very best he's ever had (he claims)! Max LOVES to watch the machine at work and insists on using a coffee mug for his juice each day now! If anyone can tell me where to find a plastic coffee mug that comes w/ a lid, let me know!

Jaxon ran us out of hot chocolate K-Cups over the weekend and is devastated that he now has to use the mix packs again for awhile till we go back to the store. We are wanting to try some different flavors but are having a hard time deciding what we should try. 

Any suggestions?!

I have decided to start another blog! I have enjoyed this one so much that I figured it couldn't hurt to try using a second blog as a way to keep myself from falling off the weight loss bandwagon! I want to keep my adventures w/ the kids separate from my adventures in fitness! I plan to offer recipes, new tips and tricks (that I am trying and that have worked for me), as well as some fun finds from Pinterest! I've had lots of people ask "how" and I'd like to share... check it out!
