Michael's Turn to Dance

This is a small excerpt from a movie that Michael made about a year ago. Some of you have seen this film in it's entirety, so this clip is no surprise for you. And yes, for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of seeing it, he DID make a video about Napoleon Dynamite.... I am convinced that Michael wishes that he was Napoleon :)
For those of you who might want to see the rest, just ask Michael, he LOVES to show it to people! Also, i should mention that he only did one "take" of this...he didn't even practice beforehand! :)
Now you can see where our little Ava gets her dancing "skills" from.

Playing in the Snow

I've been meaning to post these pictures of Michael and Ava playing out it the snow for a couple of weeks. Don't worry, we didn't take her out in zero degree weather to play, these were taken when it was mild out. (I know my mom would worry if I didn't give that disclaimer.)
We took her out in the snow hoping that she would love it. It was one of those times when we realized that we were having way more fun than she was. We were snapping pictures and saying "isn't this sooo fun," and she kept saying, "all done." So we took her back inside after about 5 minutes of trying to convince her that she loved it :) But, we got a few cute pictures!
The other picture is of Ava with her cousin Hannah. They are only 3 months apart, so they are so cute together. I'm so glad that they can play together so often (since we only live 5 minutes apart.)
We are hoping that it warms up soon so we can get out of the house more. Ava and I are getting cabin fever for sure. Let's hope Spring comes soon.
