Happy 9th Birthday to Marin!

Miss Marin is 9 years old today!
Happy birthday to our clever, witty, caring, helpful, loving, gorgeous girl!

Marin is becoming much more grown up, she enjoys helping me around the house and cooking/baking with me. She is able to do many task and it is wonderful to have her help. She likes to come shopping with me to, even if it is just to get groceries.
Marin continues to love reading books, we routinely request in 10-15 books at at time to the library and she brings them home cuddles up on the couch and reads reads reads.
Marin has a wonderful attitude when learning something new, she went skiing up a Big White for the first time this past weekend and LOVED it! 
Marin enjoys going to school each day, she is a very social person and really likes being with her friends, but she also enjoys learning and is really excelling at her school work. 
Marin's love for stuffed animals/teddy bears continues, her room would be filled with them if we let her. She always manages to find stuffy bin at every store we go into. :)
Marin has a fun time playing with her brothers, she is a great big sister and has a special relationship with each of her brothers.

We are so blessed to have Marin as our girl, we love her SO much, she is such a wonderful part of our family!
Happy birthday Marin!

A bit of today

I just wanted to share these two little videos of Asher and Jeriah. :)
Asher thinks it is fun to walk on ice and slip and slide, he would try without holding our hands, but that would be to dangerous.

Jeriah has been reading some of the Christmas books to Asher over the past week. At bedtime tonight he came down to ask me help him find "The 12 dogs of Christmas" book because it is Asher favorite. He then got them settled into his bed and read Asher the whole book. Such a good big brother!

Learning to Ski

Today was a day off for our kids, it was parent/teacher conferences. We had some fresh snow this morning so we went to a hill in the park near our house and strapped the skis onto the kids. 
Marin really got the hang of it, the boys are starting to get it, but they found it a bit trickier. We'll keep at it. :) They had fun though and given time I think will really learn to love it.
