My family LOVES America's funniest home videos. We gather 'round the TV like in days of old and laugh our heads off! Unfortunately, many of the laughs are because people have hurt themselves and we're surprised that they're OK. So, after my children learned that money could be made with these videos they have tried to mimic the stunts at home.
Alex and Lydia try the hardest right after the show finishes. This is the end result of their "slap stick" comedy act tonight.

Maybe I shouldn't have posted that....

In other news, Dave and I always "compete" in March Madness. I use the word lightly because I know nothing about college basketball. So this year I was winning! Not by a lot, but enough :) Until today, when 3 of my final four got knocked out. (well two, one was out LONG ago...Missouri... ) Dave, lucky man, ended up with THREE of the FOUR! I have lost yet again, bummer.

We are the proud parents of four tiny cute chickens :)
This is sunshine... she is Lydia's and she's adorable
This is coyote (hopefully naming him after his ultimate enemy wasn't a mistake...). He peeps all the time!
We also have carmel and Buff :) I sure hope we know what we're doing!

We were able to score some free tickets to go skiing last weekend. It was cold, we were sore, there were a few tears and lots of falls... but I couldn't stop smiling the entire time. I LOVE to ski, and I love that my kids love it too.
(sidenote: one father saw our ropes and said "that's an interesting way to do the harness, I've never seen that" I told him it was homemade... although I could have said it was the "original" or just "cheap")
