January & February 2014 - Snow tubing, new place, turning 35

In January we went out on the frozen lake with some friends and slid around on some tubes.

It was so cute to see Austin and Ethan slide Aubrey around.  I couldn't tell at first if she loved it or wasn't enjoying it because she didn't have much expression, but when I tried to take her off she wanted to stay on the tube, so I guess she liked it!  Maybe she was just a little worried that Austin was holding her, since he tends to bug her a lot!

Cute pictures of Aubrey

We went out as a family for my birthday to Zupas....yum! 

And here's Aubrey rocking out at the restaurant with a cracker on her chin. :)

Austin made this cute sign for Aubrey and put it on her door.

I didn't get a whole lot of pictures or videos in February.  We moved and it was a busy time!  We had lived in the townhome where we were for 3 1/2 years - the longest we have lived anywhere!  We didn't go far, though.  I heard of someone moving out of a home a few blocks away still in our ward, and I thought it would be great to be in a home that's more of a neighborhood, closer to the park, by lots of great families in our ward, and also cheaper rent! Can't beat that!  It's an older home compared to the townhome we were in, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons and we are really happy here.  (It's May when I'm typing this.)

Austin has had a rougher time with Aubrey than I thought he would, but every once in a while he'll surprise me and be extra nice to her.  Here he made a little tea party for Aubrey's dolls.

Morning hair!

How many kids can we fit in the tub?

I helped out with the Blue and Gold Banquet for Ethan and Cub Scouts.
