carrot cake

 i read today on twitter "moving less. eating more." the more these snow days go on the more i am feeling that. and it hasn't helped that yesterday i made carrot cake. i made it as an early valentine for pete, but it has been a treat for all of us.
 the recipe i use is from the better homes and gardens cookbook...and i add a few things.
 i added 10 oz. crushed pineapple, 1 cup nuts and 1/2 cup flake coconut with the carrots. i also put nut all on top (probably another cup)
 i put a heart on top for my valentine.

few more from breck

 We spent the days skiing and the nights hanging with the Pierces and going to sleep early.
 I realized the last day that I had taken almost no pictures of our family so i took my boys out for a few pictures...this did not go well.
 I love the mountains and we had such an amazing time. The boys are now skiers and that makes me smile.
 i do realize that Wilson's eyes are shut, but it is our only picture of the four of us and i am pretty sure i could get frustrated with him all over again if i think about it too much, so i am just sharing anyway.

 bye, bye mountains....hope to see you again soon.

breckenridge winter vacation

 On Friday night we got back from a week long trip to Breckenridge. It was a week full of family and fun. I took my camera, but really only took a few was SO cold.
 We took our first full day there slow, but did go on a little walk around town.
 It happened to be the week of the Breckenridge ice sculpture cool!
