Not Sure Where to Start

I'm still so behind on this blog, I'll probably never be caught up. Here's what we were up to in the first half of February. 

Evie has been such a challenge lately (more on this later). However, she has mastered the art of being nice to her sister (for the moment). She is always getting diapers for Anna when I need to change her, putting her pacifier back in her mouth when she drops it, getting toys for her, etc. She really does love Anna, despite being relatively jealous of her the first few months. Also, moms out there who only have one child who doesn't like taking pictures - just have another. Ev went through a phase where she HATED having her picture taken, but now that she sees me take pictures of Anna she is obsessed with getting her picture taken. She is constantly asking me to take a picture of the mundane things she does on a daily basis. Or if she thinks she's being funny, she asks, "Mom, take a picture of me being funny." 

We went to an Oregon game as a family.

And yes we starved Evie, bought her the largest size popcorn available and enjoyed the game... until the popcorn was gone.

This girl can pound the popcorn. If she wasn't a child it would be disgusting to watch her shove kernel after kernel in her mouth as if it was her last meal.

Anna girl.

Can't leave her on the couch anymore cuz she's a roller!

On days when its super duper rainy or I just can't seem to get my lazy buns on a run, I do a workout video. Ev loves to do yoga, pilates, and Jillian Michaels with me. Well, she loves to jump on my back when I'm attempting to lift my schlubby self into a push-up or army crawl underneath my downward dog. 

I can't explain why Evelyn has no clothes on in this picture.
I also can't explain why I'm wearing my pajamas to work out in.
I'm clearly making big strides in the fitness department.

Ev switched my phone camera to a certain filter and since I'm a dumbo when it comes it technology I could not figure how to get it off for like three days! So this photo is weirdly faded but oh so cute!

Anna still blows raspberries when she's sleepy.

Oregon had ANOTHER big snow dump this winter. I couldn't believe it. 
Ev was so excited to go out and play in the snow like Anna and Elsa (we might have sung "Let it Go," while eating snow).

Some cute snow kids.

When I was little my mom used to put food coloring on snow and we'd pretend they were snow cones. I fondly remember spooning bright red snow into my mouth and eating it thinking it tasted exactly like Tiger's Blood. 

Ev kept telling me that the plain white snow she was eating tasted like Olaf.

Also, my kids are growing at an incredibly terrifying rate.
