Tom and the three oldest kids ice skated on the rink after we saw a show of the mascots.
Here we are with none other than the Mountees.
Olympic tattoos. It was at this point that the rain started falling rather thickly. We decided to head home.
Mattie's snowman was picked from her class to be in the city wide school art show.
I (Keriann) went with some friends to Forks, Washington (home of the vampires from Twilight in case you have been living under a rock). I had a great time, although much to the detriment of my nieghbor who was watching my kids when Mattie got the stomach flu. She, her husband all three of her kids ended up getting it. Then it went through half of us. What a friend, eh?!
Tom turned 31, and grieved a bit because he was supposed to have a cabin when he was 30. Ahh well, maybe if we stayed put for more than two years it could have happened.
Love this picture of Sam on Easter Sunday. This was the sunday after Tom and I had been in San Diego for a week doing house hunting, and then returned to Spokane where my brother lives and did some skiing. Mattie broke her leg on the Friday before. Here you can see her splint.
Hazel in one of her Easter dresses.
All the nieghbor kids comparing their loot.
Mattie getting her cast. She broke her tibia, just a crack. We, or she espicially, is hoping it heals quickly.
She now uses both crutches and a wheelchair. She gets around pretty good.
The other exciting thing going on in the Barlow household is some "special" cooking. Tom and I have taken two classes, one on cheese (hard and soft), and the other on bread. Tom is eating a piece of bread we made with cheese we made, with jam we made. MMMMM! It's so good.
