Hitting the Slopes

As we were putting away Christmas decorations, Dash held up an ornament and told me, "These are the biggest skis I've ever seen!"

Oh, how I have failed in educating my children! Dash has been on the slopes, but he's too young to remember.

(Dash at 6 months)

So I instantly ran to get a pair of my skis and boots. "Ohhhh... now THOSE are the biggest skis I've ever seen!"cried Dash.

Dash and Jack-Jack wanted to try them out so I gave them a crash course in Downhill 101 in our living room in Texas. (The sad thing is, my boots almost fit Dash...we officially wear the same size socks!)

I may have to do a follow-up course explaining appropriate ski attire!

I've really fallen behind on blogging, which is sad because I want to remember things like when I told Dash that I had a cookie with his name on it if he held still for his haircut and he went absolutely ballistic when I gave him a cookie that didn't actually have his name on it (I got some icing from the fridge and literally wrote his name on it). Or how Jack-Jack starts meowing loudly whenever he wants to shift attention back to himself. Or how Incredibaby, after sleeping through the night for months, has decided to get up every hour and a half. I love these boys!!
