Woah, ok. I promise, I'm back!

So my last post was in September of 2013. Sorry. Life just gets away from me...a lot!

I'll try to put together some posts chronicling what we've been up to, with pictures, but in a nutshell, here's what happened since September.

In September Clara started dance class. She goes once a week on Wednesdays and loves it. I don't love the drive down there or trying to entertain a very energetic 2-year old boy, but we make do most days. Once it gets warmer I'll take him for a walk while she's in class.

Clara went as Rapunzel for Halloween. She also was supposed to wear the dress for her birthday, but decided on that day that she was definitely not going to. Welcome to the age of 3-the one no one warns you about! 

She also turned 3 on November 2nd.

Here's a picture of Sam from November. He's attempting to learn how to use a fork. I have no idea what he's actually eating because, quite frankly, he doesn't eat many things! He's a really picky eater.

We met with some friends from out of town at the Children's Museum in Green Bay. She has one son who is the same age as Clara and one who is less than a year old. They were all really cute together, even though we didn't get to spend much time together. We're planning to get together sometime this summer for a weekend, though.

November also began the winter that never ends. 

In December, Clara got to be in her school's performance of The Nutcracker. She didn't have an actual dance part, but she was really adorable!

She's having a snack between shows. :) Everyone loved her and she was really well behaved. 

We survived the craziness of Christmas, with my Aunt & Uncle and their kids coming up from Texas for the holidays. They arrived in town just before one of the biggest snow storms on record. It was a whole lot of fun and we were sad to see them go.

Adam also got an email about a job at Manitowoc Cranes. They wanted him to he did. Fast-forward a few weeks and they offered him a job! He began work on February 4th, just 3 days after my last day at the plant. My original release date was January 31st, however they did offer me an extension that I turned down. 

It's now almost the end of March. We've been really busy! Adam and I both have school, he has work (and overtime, at that), the kids are both in swimming lessons (Clara on Mondays and Sam on Tuesdays), I'm taking spinning classes twice a week and running 3 days a week, and then Clara has dance on Wednesdays. Other than that, we hang out at home or at either my or Adam's parent's house. We're all looking forward to Spring coming soon and the opportunity to get outside! 

I'll try to get some more specific posts up about what the kids have been up to and some more recent pictures, too. :)
